American singer Kelis was the victim of a verbal racist attack on her recent visit to the UK.

The Milkshake singer was in the Isle of Wight this weekend performing at the 2011 Bestival and took to Twitter (everyone’s favourite ranting tool) to tell of her ordeal.

Kelis claimed she was referred to as a “slave” and “Kunta Kinte” as well as a “disgusting Nigerian” by a complete stranger because they thought she had jumped the queue to the passport desk . SMH.  Here are some of her tweets

Do you agree with Kelis? Is racism in the UK often swept under the rug and never addressed?
