Canterbury University academic Ekant Veer has taken a stand against what he describes as  "underbelly of hate" and racism on campus by returning his student-voted lecturer of the year award.

Veer said that while the university itself was not racist, and it was the actions of "stupid indivduals" that prompted his decision, he could not accept an award from an organisation unwilling to take a stance against racisim and sexist behaviour. 

He's since been inundated with emails, calls, and online postings of support.

Ekant Veer joined us for a live chat earlier to answer your questions. You can read all his responses below.
