A Welsh-Pakistani student has revealed an incident of shocking racist abuse she experienced on the streets of Cardiff.

Yasmin had walked by a group of youths when one of the group called her a “paki”, a derogatory term used to describe people with Pakistani ethnicity, or sometimes as a broad term of derision used to refer to South East Asians.

In response, Yasmin “asked him to say it louder” and to her face, prompting a vicious back and forth that ended in a begrudging apology and the involvement of the police.

She shared the incident on Twitter. Here is the thread, below:

Eventually, the young boy apologised, but it took the police putting on sirens to do so
