I know you know that 'African' is not an ethnicity, but I thought it was worth pointing out that there are over 70 ethnic groups in Kenya. This guy is discriminating against nearly all of them.

I suspect this guy's restaurant is catering to Chinese employees of Chinese companies and wouldn't be doing business in Kenya unless that population was there. That said, I am guessing his decision to discriminate against native Kenyans is pure racial BS. The patrons he considers 'acceptable' whether Chinese, European, or other, should boycott this chump.

What kind of "business owner" decides to open up a restaurant in a foreign country and then decides to discriminate against the locals who will more than likely patronize the business?

I found something about regarding said business. The menu is in Cantonese, and not English or any other language spoken in Kenya. Pretty much the idea is to snub the locals.

He most likely is catering to Chinese employees. The menu is in Cantonese. However, he considers anyone who isn't Black as acceptable. Why he would discriminate against native Kenyans?

Here is my take. The own can do that because he has power. Racial discrimination is about power. I watched a news cast about who the workers are treated, how they are called racial slurs. Why don't the waitstaff just walk out? If those workers walk out, they can replace them with others. The average native Kenyan is poorer than the average Chinese person. The owner could just bring people over from China to be the workers. It's about power.

Anyone will behave badly when they can get away with it. People will do as much as they can get away with. This is why the idea of a lawless society scares me.

Asians do not like blacks, I know for a fact that most Chinese people do not like blacks. African-Americans on this site are so busy playing the race card they don't know how the rest of the world view them.

Not to say it is right but I guess it is as much or more about his customers not wanting the locals around while dining.

Wow, I had this talk with my Chinese friend years ago. He's around 50 and currently works back in China.

Black people are REALLY looked down on throughout Asia. Heck, the japanese even consider them to be beneath fillipinos....who are beneath whites and other asians with of course the Japanese at the top.

The only shocking thing about this was how blatant it was.

P.S. In several parts of Africa you can get even worse treatment if you are black....from other blacks. There are jerks everywhere in this world of all color, religion, nationality, etc.

It's both sad and comical at the same time the degree of ignorance that exists among huge segments of the Chinese lower and working class population. These are the same people who thinks elephant tusks "fall" out by themselves from the elephant, with no damage to the animal. These are also the same people who would butcher a dog right in front of you to make you a great bowl of hot "stew". Their cultural sense is stunningly backward and "rural Chinese", and even in China, these people are the laughing stock of lots of jokes and these people are often abused verbally and physically point blank in sophisticated cities like Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong. Peasants will always be peasants and it is what it is.

The fact that this restaurant owner has no legal license is also very Chinese. They do not care about the law because they only understand bribes.
