A young poet will play a video of white people being hit by food as part of her performance at the Brighton Fringe.Oh. Brighton. *rolls eyes*
Subira Wahogo, 24, is a Sussex University graduate who is heavily involved in creative arts.
She has chosen this visual performance for the festival to highlight the different types of racism that happens in society.Thank god for universities, eh? What would we do without their commitment to educating our young people?
Without them, we might think there's only one form of racism...
“Last summer I went to the beach with my friend.
“We were lying down and relaxing, and this man came up to us and made a pass at us, he called us coffee and cream.
“It made me very angry.
“Right after the incident at the beach, I wrote on Facebook and asked if anyone else has had similar experiences and I got many responses.
“Some people responded saying they have been called ‘Bounty’, ‘Oreo’, ‘chocolate’, ‘chocolate milk’, Nandos chicken and even sweet and sour sauce.
“Unfortunately that was not the first time I’ve been labelled as a food.”Aww, dry those tears, honey.
