Monday night saw a Facebook post go viral as a Law student of the University of Exeter blasted a WhatsApp group for racist and sexist comments.
The exposer, Arsalan, gathered more than 50 screenshots over a course of time to reveal the disgusting topics that were on a Law Society WhatsApp Group.
Three individuals in particular were making horrific comments on Black people, Asians, Muslims and Women.
The contents of the chat included topics such as ensuing a race war, gang raping women as well as an excessive use of the n-word and p**i.
Following the exposure and viral spread on social media, the University of Exeter have launched an investigation into the situation, suspending the culprits in the process.
On Twitter, they wrote: “The University of Exeter does not tolerate any form of racist, sexist or bigoted behaviour and is committed to eradicating any instances of discrimination and harassment that may arise.”
The local police have been informed about the matter and promises of serious punishment for the perpetrators have been made.
This will not be enough though.
Statistics in the last couple of years show that Hate Crime is on the rise, with the largest spike being the days following the EU Referendum Elections back in 2016.
One of the students came out to apologise for his comments but the damage has already been done.
He as well as his peers have fallen victim to their own hate and stupidity.
No matter how many snide comments you make about minorities and women, they will somehow be exposed for the general public to look in shock and disappointment.
The individuals that participated in the hate of that group will now never be able to pursue a career in Law as work placements and the board of their school have been informed of their activity.
I salute Arsalan for his bravery and patience in exposing these fools to the rest of the world.
His Facebook post has since been taken down however everyone now knows what is going on.
