“Asians” at Oxford

Filed under: Culture,Oxford — Razib Khan @ 12:31 pm

David Cameron brands ‘all white’ Oxford University a disgrace:

Some 16,591 students at Oxford disclosed their ethnicity as they started the 2009-10 academic year. Of those, 12,671 were white, 1,477 were Asian, 1,098 were Chinese, 838 were of mixed race and 254 of other ethnicity. Black students accounted for only 253 undergraduates and postgraduates.

Setting aside the weird British use of the term “Asian,” I’m guessing that most of these Asians aren’t Muslim, and that there’s a bias toward people of East African Diasporic background. False?
