Racism is White and not only do Chinese know and experience it. Asians, Africans, Indians, Middle Easterners, Jews and our Indigenous First Nation People all have felt it. It’s not just an inevitable part of a multicultural society. It’s rooted in our history and is systemic. It has has been built into our very white-biased institutions and social fabric over generations. It can only be changed by admitting it, teaching it and criticizing it. By introducing it into our very primary education systems.
Mind you it has had positive outcomes as well driving those who are seen as different into self-employed businesses and striving for better-than-average educational qualifications on the negative side into crime for survival..
“These days, it doesn’t take too much to provoke a racist. All it takes is seeing someone who looks Chinese.”
