    lmao, all the gingers I've known have all been big racists.

    If he says the n-word you have justification to whack him a bit, just saying.
    LOL a lot of the girls that are ethnic minorities on TRS have some sort of fetish for ginger guys and worship them.

    Just type it up on student room and you know what I am talking about.

    Stop being an apologist for the ginger guy.

    The story is pretty obviously that the ginger thinks people of colour don't face institutional discrimination these days, and used the n-word in a casual manner without caring about causing offense, then got angry when OP told him white people shouldn't be using these colonial words. He then tried to provoke OP by saying other variants of the n-word, and did the usual argument white people use to make themselves appear the victim ("oh but its racist if you can say the word but we can't".

    OP also got into an argument with him about cultural appropriation, and the ginger's friends thought it would be hilarious to harass OP about it for some reason.

    Sounds like the ginger had a privileged upbringing if anything, rather than simply being "troubled". I know many people on this forum who sound exactly like ginger guy.
    Well, do people of colour even face institutionalised discrimination in this day and age? Go back to pre 1960s and yes, I would wholeheartedly agree that they are victims of racism but surely not today, not in the UK at least. But the ginger guy's attitude towards people of colour needs to change or he'll get what's coming to him very soon.

    Of course white people can use the n word. It may be seen as distasteful or racist, but words aren’t anyone’s property, least of all the property of a certain race.

    If black people are so offended by the n word then they should stop using it themselves so that it gradually falls out of use.

    Do they happen to also be ginger? Seems like there's an epidemic of gingers oppressing POCs. Also encouraging to see that this struggle is recognised by the two unironic reps.

    White people themselves decided that words are peoples' property. One example being trademarks.

    Can't suddenly decide to stop playing by the rules just cuz things have changed
    No, trademarks are a specific collection of words or phrases that cannot be used by another company to promote their product. But other than that those words and phrases can still be said at will by anyone and everyone. A standalone word is not owned by anyone and there is no way to stop others from physically uttering it.

    honestly, forget about him. I think he might have racially abused at some point. because gingers do. there was a boy in my year last year who was bullied the the colour of his hair, just because he was ginger?!?!?!!?

    Oh my Christ.

    Being ginger is not a race.

    I cannot believe I had to type that out.

    OP, multiple people are insulting you, someone made an obscene image of you?

    This is archetypal cyber bullying. The first thing you do tomorrow is go to your head of year, and show this WhatsApp thread.

    The fact that he has used the n-word three plus times is grounds enough for him to be in **** street. Let alone the rest of the attack.

    Go to school and make a serious complaint of racism and harassment. Schools are often ineffective when it comes to discipline, but one thing they really do have a zero tolerance on is racism.


    I feel so sorry for you right now, just remember that those idiots don't mean anything to you, they aren't worthy to lick your shoes. You have you friends and your loved ones, and you know what a valuable person you are, and that is all the matters.

    Noah fence but I love this, it really sums everything up. Such a need to be victimised when it's just not realistic - he's rich, his mum has like 6 jobs (not in the poor I can't afford anything way, like in the - she's got a lot of senior positions kinds of way, and he regularly uses this to try to prove sexism isn't real, and I would laugh at the notion that his educated white mother is the ultimate proof, if it weren't so sad, that is), and he's genuinely dedicating his EPQ to the argument that gingers face the most amount of sht by society and that he's so oppressed.

    This is bad and you need to report it immediately. If they do nothing maybe report it to the police? It pretty much cyber bullying at this point, and he seems like such a privileged ****. I simply don't understand why people have the need to be racist, and/or why people don't understand that humans are the same regardless of skin colour.

    And its not like its a bad thing reporting this. Him and his racist friends could seriously cause havoc when their older if they keep this up-evil tends to flourish greater in groups and god knows what events will happen between them. We can assume its not good.

    Reporting this is the best thing to do. Plus, show this to some of your black, Jewish or any minority friends, maybe a larger group could convince your heads of college or any superior to actually give a **** and do something. Maybe threaten the head as to why he's not doing anything? It will make a good news headline and you'll earn some extra dosh along the way .
    Maybe add your ethnic minority friends to this group chat, you know, let them back you up. Maybe they won't say anything with a large black audience. If they do you can use this tension as even further evidence to get them ****ed, but this isn't the best option. In my school, most people would've scrapped, but that's your choice really. usually not the best option, but kicking the **** outta him could sort him out...or enrage him further.

    Anyways good luck bro, hope you get this sorted out. Just don't forget you're doing the right thing, keep your head high, and when the school comes to know of these ***** getting expelled, i'm sure you'll get some sort of praise

    Haha, this is so optimistic that it sorta makes me sad. I am getting my poc folk together to strategize rn, one's sent an email out for me already, I'll be seeing another who goes to the other college the other offenders in the gc r from, so hopefully we can put together a trans-college attack plan.

    I don't really feel like I'm gonna be taken seriously, I just never am - they're gonna get a....detention...like at the most and will be on their way, you know? Some kids who pushed me into an active road when I was younger didn't even get that, sucks that I'm used to it.

    News would be great, but how would I even frame it? Oi oi local newspaper the whites r back at it again pls help lmao... Maybe I could write an expose piece on the blatant disregard for racist views and bullying within sixth form authority in the city or smthn? The head would laugh at me if I suggested that, I can imagine it now.

    Firstly thank you so much for the inspiring stuff! But, to my lament, apparently I can't to sht on racial terms bc it's "off school grounds" and he isn't directly calling me the slurs or anything - I already reported him for the first time he used it, and he was told that he was "clearly" not being racist and that he was fine. Like, the head of sixth said scoffed fondly and said "silly boy" when I reported him. I genuinely feel so powerless and I hate it so much, They just get to do whatever with no repercussions while minorities have to suffer from the toxic ideologies they're spewing out to society. I know I'm struggling for no reason and it's gonna be me who pays the emotional price at the end of the day. I wish there was some higher authority who actually cared about something like this. I've never seen a school react well ever against acts of injustice, it's like they're tolerant towards intolerance.

    I'm an Asian (international, non UK/EU) who goes to a VERY white school in the SW and I have never ever experienced such thing as 'racism'.

    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?
    Pretty sure this is fake
