Black medical student who claims she was bullied by racists sues for £300,000.

First of all, judging by what her hair looks like in the hard copy edition of our morning paper, can’t say as I blame anyone for not wanting to share a shower room with her.  But no matter, since bloody when does not wanting to shop with someone or share a meal with someone open an institution to charges of race?  Why does this (please note her origin) former Nigerian believe anyone has some sort of moral obligation to have lunch with or go shopping with her.  This is what the world has come to and the blame isn’t with the self styled victims.  No.  It’s the white,left liberal brigade that’s taught em they have rights beyond normal rights.

Can anyone seriously believe that a college like this one, which isn’t some unknown backwater college, can anyone believe they would act in a way that might open them to this sort of thing.  But hey ... there’s money in victimhood. Sure, the school went looking for problems and so out of the racist blue they intentionally failed her.  Uh Huh.

Hell, no point in my ranting on when Drew did it better under comments in another posting.

Here’s part of Drew’s comments and nobody has said it better.

Race gets thrown up against white people constantly because without it - the “we’re treated differently because you think we’re different because we go out of our way to act and BE different, unless it suits our immediate purpose” there is no reason to expect anyone to not assimilate and act like the majority. And that means white folk.

The shoe has been on the other foot for 3-4 decades now. The young Up and Comers on today’s corporate fast track were all born after 1980. A full third of our population has never known a time or a situation when being a minority was not a distinct advantage. Another third was not aware of the wider world until after the Civil Rights movement had made huge gains. The poorer people in that age demographic have been on government support their entire lives. Entire. Lives.

A black medical student who claims she was bullied by white racists on her course before examiners deliberately failed her is suing her college for more than £300,000.

Virginia Jibowu claims she was ostracised by students in an “institutionally racist” environment at London’s King’s College medical school.

The 25-year-old alleges that fellow students refused to shop, eat or share a shower-room with her in their accommodation.

She claims one female student suggested introducing a killer disease into Africa to wipe out all the black people, while a male student allegedly asked her if black men were less intelligent than whites.

A third allegedly complained that the black nurses at King’s College Hospital were no fun.

Miss Jibowu is suing the college, which is part of the University of London, at Central London County Court for harassment, race discrimination and victimisation.

She alleges that while her fellow students have graduated and are now working in the NHS, the college has refused to investigate her complaints, intentionally failed her and tried to stop her re-sitting the course.

Miss Jibowu, who is of Nigerian origin and from Lambeth in south London, is demanding over £300,000 for loss of earnings, aggravated damages and injury to health and feelings.

If she fails to qualify from the course, she is expected to sue at the High Court for further compensation for the loss of her career, which could run into hundreds of thousands of pounds.

In legal papers submitted to the court, she alleged: “The college disregarded my complaints and graduated all students complained about.

“All of the alleged racists are now practising as doctors in the NHS. This can only ingrain the problem of institutional racism within the medical practice.

“They were not interviewed. At no point has the college accepted it was at fault for allowing an institutionally racist and victimising, hostile studying environment to exist.”

Miss Jibowu enrolled on the college’s six year extended medical degree course for students from disadvantaged backgrounds in September 2002.

She said students on that course had to wear a special badge, which led to them being bullied by counterparts on the regular five year degree programme.

In the legal papers, she claimed one student “asked me if black men were less intelligent than other people. He also asked if black people were more prone to becoming fat.

“He also said that he had stopped contacting a mutual friend because he had become ‘too black’.”

Miss Jibowu claimed three other white students were “hostile” to her during her hospital placement in Hastings, East Sussex in 2006.

One allegedly said that immigrants were “spoiling the UK” and said of the hospital in Hastings: “The nurses are great here - might have some fun. It’s not like in King’s cos they’re all Afro-Caribbean.”

Miss Jibowu had passed the first five years of study without failure and fully expected to complete her final year.

She had secured a job as a doctor at Gwent Hospital in Wales and was due to start work in August 2008.

But she claims the college deliberately failed her from final exams and then, without informing her, contacted hospital bosses in Gwent to say she would not be taking up her post.

She said the post should have been held open pending her appeal against the exam results.

“The college appears to be continuing actively to take steps to ensure that I fail my course or am removed from the course before its completion and am thereby denied the opportunity of becoming a doctor.”

King’s college and the former students accused of racism deny Miss Jibowu’s allegations.

The college is vigorously defending her court claim but a spokeswoman said: “We are unable to comment while legal proceedings are ongoing.”

The case is due to be heard later this year.

  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere
