Black students are failing to apply to Cambridge because there is a lack of Afro-Caribbean hairdressers in the city, the university’s pro-vice-Chancellor has said.
The “unexpected” finding arose during research into what deters black students from considering the institution, according to Professor Graham Virgo.
Speaking at an event held at King’s College, Cambridge, he said this was one of the barriers that black students face in applying to the university.
“We have been doing some quite detailed research, particularly with black students, particularly in London, looking at obstacles to applying to Cambridge and thinking about Cambridge. And number three on the list was hairdressers,” he said.
Perhaps more bruthaz oughta become hairdressaz, to stop The Man from keeping dey homies down! 😉
