UK NIGN STUDENT CRIES OUT OVER RASCIST ABUSE!



RACIST ABUSE: Faramade Ifaturoti

WARWICK UNIVERSITY is at the centre of fresh race row after student Faramade Ifaturoti's came home to find the words "monkey n***a' written on her bananas in marker pen.

Ifaturoti, a Biomedical student, took to Twitter to share the disturbing images this afternoon (April 5), writing: “Just entered the kitchen and look at what one of my flatmates has done. I am extremely disgusted @WarwickAccomm.”

The university’s African and Caribbean Society (ACS) released a statement of support calling for a robust investigation into finding the culprit and ensuring they are reprimanded accordingly.

They wrote on Twitter: “This is absolutely vile. Standing in solidarity. No stone will be left unturned until the culprit is dealt with.”

The incident has sparked the hashtag #WeStandWithFara in support of Ifaturoti, who has experienced racism at the top university on more than one occasion.

In February, she wrote on Twitter: “Racism is very real. Especially in this Warwick I can't lie.”

The university has since responded, telling concerned students that an investigation had been launched.

They wrote on their official account: “A racist incident has been widely reported on social media – the University is investigating as a matter of urgency."

However, the response has come a little too late for some, who claim the university has only spoken out because the incident had gained so much attention.

Ifaturoti herself wrote: “I'm highly disappointed that it took a Twitter escalation in order for you to respond.”

Warwick Student Union said: “Warwick SU has a zero-tolerance policy on racist behaviour.

“We unequivocally condemn this shocking and disgusting act, which should clearly have no place in either our University or society at large.
