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.
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
