Hi. I live in England. In my school, the nerds and the geeks are at the top of the popularity heirarchy, and the ones with too much make-up are looked down on. In our school, there is very little problem with racism since at least quarter of students have English as their second language. Yet our school's reputation is one of the worst you will ever see.
Sincerely, it doesn't make sense to me either, but I like it!
