Prof Chen-Wishart, an expert in contract law, described how an incident a few weeks ago prompted her to become more vocal on the issue of race and launch a social media campaign. She said that as she was entering her office in the Law faculty, a building manager asked her who she had an appointment with.
When Prof Chen-Wishart told him that she was the dean of the faculty, the manager said he “forgot” and proceeded to follow her to her office.
The claim though is that this is because of race or skin colour. Hmm, well, how often are white folks asked? Maybe it really is racism but at least we should ensure we’ve the necessary data to find out.
