What If It Was A Chinese Daughter.

I am so angry right now, am shaking I need to break something. I need to scream really loud or I will lose my mind. Its like that feeling i got when i watched all the parts of roots in one day. i work for a company owned by Chinese people but its in my country in  Africa. The government hasn't done anything to stop the obvious racism Would you be surprised if I told you all the top management are Chinese? All in the name of investment. I don't understand why they feel so superior, its not like they are white. My boss is different, thank God for that. He is the nicest person I know. The honest truth is that if I keep up with This job, I will never be a manager.    

Today one of the construction workers came in to ask for an advance because his daughter was very ill. In fact she has been very critical for a month. The Chinese accountant told him he couldn't because he had the same excuse last month. I went in to talk to him and he said it was non of my business. Seriously? He just couldn't give that man $20 because he had the same excuse last month? I got defensive, what does being black have to be like a punishment for some unforgivable crime? That man didn't choose for his 3 year old daughter to be ill. Besides what he chooses to do with his $20 advance shouldn't be any one business. 

I have never been a person to protest and stand up for my rights but then again I had never faced racism before. Let me tell you something if ever I see racism happen to me or even to a walker by, I will fight with every bone in body to stop it. I have learned that racism is out there, not just on T.V . For as long as I work here, I dare some one to act racist. 

UPDATE
Am very sad to say that the construction workers daughter passed away. The racism here is still growing. I am leaving this stupid company. Thank God

Hi,



Very sorry to hear that these Chinese you are working for are that horrible. I do not know what to say but feel really sorry. I am also a Chinese while I personally did not inflict racism on people but i do feel that there is a collective responsibility just like white people in US have a collective responsbility from what their ancestors did to the black they brought in.

Trying to rid Chinese people of racism is like trying to rid an ocean of salt

but ur using racism in that
and stereotyoping
and ur insulting me

This is a case of using racism against racism. Two wrongs do not make one right.
