    A group of young girls between 11-14 years old used racist and discriminatory words to another person and to me in the bus.
    At the beginning they were playing music so loud and it was so disturbing for everyone. After 20 minutes, someone asked them to stop the music, and their reaction was extremely rude and inappropriate. some of the things that one of the girls said were:
    -"I have more right to be in this bus because I born here"
    -"You don't even speak English well to speak with me "
    -" fucking skinny and white ginger"

  • arrow_drop_down London, 16 October 2017 - Other

    A caucasian student was using stereotypes to offend my black friend and I. This leaded to a heated argument between the white teaching staff members, the student being offensive and myself and my friend who are black. This was not a physical altercation. Just verbal. 2 days later we were excluded from the University for arguing that what she had said was offensive to us.

    Did anyone speak up or offer support?

    The staff members were extremely unsupportive. Out of my whole educational experience, this is by far the least support I have ever received from Tutors. Institutional racism is embedded in this College, the tutors told us to "tone down your personality to blend in with others". When we made a complaint about racism in the second week of University. We are a minority of about under 10 to 100 caucasians. We are disregarded in the classroom, treated differently from everybody else. It has been an incredibly sad experience in the heart of London

  • arrow_drop_down Oxford, 21 October 2017 - Verbal abuse / insults

    At Debenhams, Oxford, I asked for a VAT receipt as my purchase was VAT-liable, and it was for the small business work for. I was told that the company policy was that such a receipt could only be given for transactions above 50 pounds (which seems completely unlawful, by the way). When I insisted, the manager told me to ask for one at the airport. I have been living in Oxford for 5 years now, and this comment was only to imply that I am a foreigner who was bound to go back where she came from eventually. I find this attitude despicable, and I will take this case further.

    Did anyone speak up or offer support?

    No.
