    I went to view an apartment today for uni, and when the landlord met us outside, my mum said a very racist comment...

    She said that she thought he was an immigrant who wanted her to let him into the building we were viewing.

    She said there's no way he could own this grade 1 big building in the middle of town, and he heard this...

    He refused to let us go inside, and said that, it is in the best interests of his business to not let us inside, and then refused to let me put a deposit down on the apartment

    obviously, there's no way I can rent this apartment now, which has made me cry

    my mum and her big mouth!!!

    i don't believe what has happened today...!!!

    wow that's awful you must feel embarrassed...move past it and try to find another apartment. If you can't then try to see the landlord again (without your mum), apologize and ask if you can see the apartment again. Or contact him electronically if for whatever reason you can't see him face-to-face. About your mother...you can't help her prejudices and if you can't educate her about it you have no choice but to accept it I guess
    good luck
