Thread Shred: I exposed racism at my university and got suspended

Student union officer Chloe Long shared images taken at a Lancaster University white t-shirt social event.

Members of a university sports club were pictured wearing t-shirts with slogans which referenced rape and homophobia.

Chloe explains her reasons for sharing the images.

*Since the release of this video, Lancaster University have informed us that some of the students who wore the t-shirts have been suspended for 12 months from the university and fined between £200-£500. They have assured us that Lancaster University does not tolerate hate speech.
