  • arrow_drop_down Oxford, 23 November 2017 - Other

    Seven of my friends and I had vouchers to get a drink in Hollywood Bowl in Oxford. We went to get the drinks and the waitress asked for proof of identity. None of us is english/british and we all had the IDs but not the passport. The waitress refused to accept those as proof of identity and also our driving licenses because and I quote ‘it has a european logo but not a british one’. I requested to talk to the manager but unfortunately she shared the same opinion. Our national IDs were not a rightful proof of identity because they did not have the official british logo. I can’t express enough the frustation I felt and all my friends the same. Not because of the drink that we didn’t get, but because the feeling of rejection, that people didn’t want us there.

    They were very rude in rejecting us, no hint of understanding

  • arrow_drop_down London, 05 November 2017 - Verbal abuse / insults, Threats / intimidation

    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 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.

  • 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.

    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 Chichester, 05 October 2017 - Verbal abuse / insults

    Today, the 5th of October 2017, at a pharmacy in Chichester, around 6.00pm, one of the Pharmacy Technicians displayed what can only be described as an unacceptable xenophobic behaviour. The first words uttered by the technician in question were an unmentionable insult which was then subsequently followed by a dismissive: “How can I help?”. This is absolutely unacceptable and severely damaging to the image of the Pharmacy in question. I was informed by staff that it is not the first time that an incident like this has happened with the same member of staff. Therefore I anticipate that the pharmacy is quite aware that this is happening, i.e. they are aware that a member of their staff displays racist behaviours and as such the pharmacy endorses this type of behaviour by not doing anything. I believe that an apology is due and I look forward to hearing it from the Management Team at this Pharmacy in Chichester.

  • arrow_drop_down Southport, 24 September 2017 - Verbal abuse / insults

    Horrifying footage has captured a woman launching a foul-mouthed racist tirade at workers in a kebab shop.

    CCTV from the Medo Kebab House in Southport, Merseyside, recorded the woman telling workers, 'remember he's in my country, not his' as she was handed her food.

    In the video, she can be heard shouting a racial slur into the shop from the doorway, as a staff member replies: 'it's your country - no need to be racist.'

    She can be seen using an electronic cigarette as she stands at the counter.

    Cihan Erdogan, 42, owns Medo Kebab House and moved to the UK some 23 years ago from Turkey.

    Mr Erdogan, who was working behind the counter, told the Liverpool Echo: 'She tried to grab something behind the till, a piece of paper or a pen, and I told her not to.

    'We said "please just ask us, we can give you whatever you want" and she was saying, "This is my own country - this is mine, you are foreign, you can't say that to me".'

  • arrow_drop_down Edinburgh, 06 September 2017 - Verbal abuse / insults

    It was around 3.40 pm I was driving towards the Corstorphine roundabout in Edinburgh. I was returning from a long day at college. There was a lot of traffic on the way back home and I was in my lane. I noticed a white van coming onto my car, into my lane without indicating and I horned to warn him and make aware of what he was doing. It was a white middle aged man and his car registration (which I memorised till I got home) is **** ***. The man looked at me and began shouting and swearing. Amongst all this shouting I heard him very clearly shout out at me "Fuck your colour". I panicked so badly thinking he was going to hit my car but I remained calm. I already suffer badly from mental health problems. This experience has definitely made my health problems worst. I'm a young Muslim women that wears the hijab and this guy is definitely racist and hostile towards people that look different. It is evident from his words and behaviour.

    "Why are you causing all this trouble. You all do it. You're all racist. Stay in your own country."

    The crying boy screamed as Davies yelled at his mum: “I will f***ing kill you – I will do this every time I see you.”

    She called Miss Grellnethov “a f***ing foreigner” and claimed her boyfriend, Adrian Tomcik, earlier attacked her mum Pauline.

    Shortly after the attack – caught on CCTV – Tomcik arrived and assaulted Pauline Davies. Police then arrested him, Davies and the teenager.

    Ms Grellnethove was treated for lumps to her head, sore ribs, grazed knees and bruising to her hand from the bite.

    Miss Grellnethov told the court she felt “terrorised” and her traumatised son still talked about the attack.
