Original Message King’s College London must replace portraits of some of its founding fathers with ethnic minorities amid pressure from students, a dean says. The plans to move portraits of former faculty staff from the main entrance wall and replace them with more BME scholars are being implemented by the world famous Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience, following concern among academics that current teaching is too “intimidating” for ethnic minorities..

Professor Leman added that portraits lining the main entrance are “almost entirely white middle-aged men” and will be replaced with a “wall of diversity”. He added that all current portraits of former deans would be “taken down” and rehung, with some being placed in less prominent positions, in comments that could be interpreted as them being sidelined by the Institute.

Any doubts that native whites are being treated as second class citizens in their own countries?
