This rather disturbing series of photos shows how rampant stereotyping and racism is even at the best of educational institutes.
The project called,I, Too, Am, Oxford is a photo series featuring Oxford students holding white boards sharing some of their own frustrations and revealing the types of comments they hear on campus. Some are really hard to believe:
It’s really mindboggling to see the kind of stereotypical behavior and comments many students have to face on a regular basis just because of the color of their skin.
Some of the assumptions can be downright cruel.
It is surprising that despite students of all castes and creeds studying at places like Oxford, offensive stereotypes still exist. Hopefully the project will succeed in raising awareness and promote respect and tolerance.
