On this episode of MK on the Mic, I am talking about racism at UK universities. The Guardian recently put out a survey asking people to send in their experiences, which encouraged me to address the topic on this podcast. 

Topics include:

- A Yellowface party that was thrown by white students at The University of Edinburgh
- How Yellowface dehumanises East Asian students
- Cultural appropriation and blackfishing
- Edifess and racist posts 
- A secret eugenics conference at University College London, with known white supremacist speakers, with contributions from a researcher who has previously advocated child rape
- The white nationalist, Peter Cytanovic, who was accepted into The London School of Economics
…and more!
