Following a racist incident at Warwick University, The University of Bath along with other notable student newspapers around the UK have decided to conduct a university wide survey into racism throughout higher education.
Farmade Ifaturoti, a student of Warwick University, posted the now viral tweet after returning home to her accommodation to see a bunch of bananas covered in racial slurs.
“Just entered the kitchen and look at what one of my flatmates has done. I am extremely disgusted.”
The University in question is now responding to the incident, however, in a story by The Boar, Warwick University’s student newspaper, “The student responded with her disappointment that “it took a Twitter escalation” for the University to respond.”
The incident at Warwick University begs the question, despite positive rhetoric; do Universities and Student unions around the UK proactively combat racism or merely react to it? We hope to find out.
