    There's this guy who has been a right jerk to me before (saying that I was lying when I said I had faced racism, while he insisted that he, a white guy, faced racism for being ginger - I wish I was joking, truly) which prompted be to leave the club I was in with him like immediately, I really wasn't going to bother to talk sense into him, as a poc I shouldn't have to be an 'educator' for these people.

    Anyway, recently, in this bus groupchat we have in the college, he used the n-word. I thought about reporting it, knowing that when I had done previously with some other white kid nothing had happened, but today it turned out he'd been getting antisemetic to a Jewish friend of mine, so I was like, what do I have to lose?

    And he decided to throw a strop, trying to argue with me for like two hours, while using the n-word in it's different forms (like n*gro, spelt in a phonetic form, n*gga again) three more additional times. And he called me racist for 'racially targeting' him bc I said that white people can't use the word, which includes him. He also flaunted the fact that since this hasn't happened on school grounds, there's nothing school authority can legally do.

    After that, he added in a bunch of people who don't like me and happen to be his friends into the groupchat so they could read anything. I already have people shouting 'cultural appropriation' in the halls at me whenever I walk by since this ginger guy and his friends disagreed with me that white girls wearing bindis as #aestheticfacepaint for a music festival was cultural appropriation, and they enjoy tormenting people apparently. So yeah, probably gonna be more of that tomorrow, sure love this place.

    So uhh, anyone know what I can do? I can go to the head of sixth again with this new info, but people are telling me it's not worth it and that it won't do anything. But I know I'll still do that, because I'm not the sort to sit back and let people just be massive racists with no repercussions. Then again, there are gonna be no repercussions, and I'm gonna just get clowned even more.

    Sigh.

    MASSIVE sigh.

    At least in America students get called out and suspended for a day or two, jeez. And I doubt anyone really would care enough to try to do something? Like the local newspaper wouldn't at least start a dialogue about the restrictions British schools have in punishing racism or something.

    Yikes.


    [Update no. 1] - on the same day

    Haha, guess who just got put back into the group and saw a bunch of people calling me straight-up insane, stupid, some guy made a really disgusting sexual image of me? When I said I hoped he did something more obviously incriminating, I didn't mean a groupchat full of people ranting about me. Oh my actual god, I'm shaking, people I didn't even know disliked me are saying the most putrid stuff. How the hell am I going into college tomorrow??

    [Update no.2] - next day

    Uh well, this definitely gotten out of hand. They're scared out of their lives that I've told the head, and they've put forth a 'nuclear option' where they're gonna take me to court for sending some girl death threats? I have absolutely done nothing of the sort? Her mother's a lawyer so their trying to sort stuff out rn. Like are they using apps or photoshop to doctor something together? I seriously don't know why I keep getting into these situations, like it's an option between keeping my mouth shut n justice and, like the tiny pre-serum captain america I am, I don't go for the sensible route.

    Also, rather interesting to find out that the head of sixth apparently told ginger that he 'clearly' wasn't racist and that he's not in trouble. Same one who let this other white guy who said the n word loud and clear off so easily, even though it happened on school grounds - this guy went onto ripping down my posters for my campaign for student president, and replacing them with his own, which his friend group all partook in, which included this group to harass me in the halls, making fun of me. I had to speak to different teachers on different days, including the head of sixth, but he continued his fckery and got the position - I couldn't even produce posters at a higher rate than them ripping them down.

    I remember bringing this up because the whole ordeal had me upset, But I was just given campaign tips and refusals that any wrongdoing had happened, the head denying that I was right in my view, trying to convince me that I had remembered it wrong - and something like, "Oh but I just saw one of your posters!" (the only ones that lasted were either somewhere no one even went, or right outside her office). Really, why on god's green earth did I decide to go to this white of a school?

    exactly, the boy I was talking about was actually mixed.
    I believe that some people just aren't educated enough. like they don't understand that we are all the same, just that the level of melanin in our skin is different.
    for example, for me, everyone assumes I'm adopted because my parents and siblings are so dark, whereas I'm so white. the amounts of times people thought it'll be funny to make a joke about that is unbelievable.

    Yeah he's the racist. However you'll find white people defend him claiming there's nothing wrong with the n-word, he's just an idiot etc etc

      Keep a record of anything like this so you can use it as evidence if you need to, but unless it gets worse or keeps on happening there's not much to be done. He's a D and you just need to try to avoid him.
      If it keeps on happening or gets and worse, it would probably class as harassment or bullying which the college could get involved in, but otherwise it's just somebody saying mean stuff now and then.

      Seems pretty douchey of him to do all of that but he's probably had a troubled past. Although, him getting bullied for being ginger isn't technically "racist" but it seems that "racist" is a general term used for discrimination these days, so i think that's what he meant.

      But this isn't to say that white people don't experience racism; a white person living in a black/middle eastern neighbourhood would most likely get bullied just for being white and society wouldn't give two sh*ts because for some reason, only non white people can be victims of racism and only white people are racist.....
