The National Union of Students has been criticised for failing to effectively tackle racism in its ranks.Once again, those who've lived by the sword are now forced to consider it might not be a nice way to die. Couldn't happen to a nicer bunch of people!
Black students have spoken out after a series of alleged incidents that have occurred at recent student union events.
Bellavia Ribeirio-Addy, NUS black students' officer, claimed these incidents were not dealt with in an acceptable way.
This part, though, really takes the biscuit:
There have also been allegations that at an event earlier in the summer, Muslim students had to eat their dinner behind a screen, separated from other delegates, as a non-alcoholic venue had not been provided.So, not content with simply not drinking themselves, they consider it their right to force everyone else to go dry too...? Good luck with convincing a bunch of students that that's a valid approach!
