Name one reason why I should care what anyone thinks of me as a Black man? I don't think I should care. I admit to caring too much. However, why should I? The only thing caring so much does to me is causing anxiety issues and anger. Also raises my blood pressure.

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.
Yeah, that is the weird part of this story, Chinese people are usually very good at hiding their prejudices, no one I mean no one in China would openly descriminate anyone except the Japanese.

There's a cause and effect for everything. No matter how wrong the owner was, I don't believe for one second that the policy was put in place for no specific reason.

This is how I look at it. I don't care why he did it. He was wrong.

Lots of Asian and Hispanic retailers have a de facto "no Americans policy" where they will not serve you in English, thus rendering you unable to receive service

That won't work on me. I speak their languages.

And if it wasn't for treatment and views like this, then there wouldn't be any reason for the "card" to pop up.(Note: I'm using "card" facetiously). No one would be making a big deal over skin color any more than they would over eye or hair color in that regard. You can't have it both ways.

Then if he's really having that big of a problem with local Kenyans, then by that logic, he should not even be running a business there. He's in Kenya. The majority of people there are KENYANS. Why would you try to set up shop in an area where you have an issue with the locals there?

Well, two questions. Why is he in Africa running a business then? Maybe its a front for something else?
Exactly. It doesn't make any sense. Not only would he be snubbing most of his potential income (considering most of the population around him are the locals of Kenya), but if he's shady enough to run the business without a license, what ELSE could he be shady enough to be doing?



And now for my own little diatribe:
What gives this guy the right to determine what locals can or can't do in their own country!?
I don't know if the owner was Kenyan-born Chinese or if he moved there from China. But if you go to another country, YOU are the foreigner, not them. I may be wrong about this because I hardly know squat about Kenya's laws, but since he was arrested for operating a restaurant there without a license, he evidently broke the law, which as an immigrant (especially if he was not native-born or considered a naturalized citizen there), can be grounds for deportation. Discriminating against locals won't look good on his record either.

It is impossible the menu is in Cantonese, for the simple reason that Cantonese doesn't exist in written form.

I was told by an African friend from Sierra Leone that back home, a friend of his saw a Chinese man running down the streets of Freetown chasing a dog with a knife and a fork with a bib around him...In my experience, West Africans look down on
Asians they actually told me this and have seen mistreatment of an Asian friend at a Nigerian party when the guys got to
drinking..

They also told me that Asians have an inferiority complex when it comes to white people and don't take them as equals like
Africans do..(at least West Africans)..

However, as an Afro-American, socially I have not had an issue with Asians, HOWEVER one guy didn't want us to go with him when he went to visit a white friend we were all at college at the time. So he kept his black friends and white friends separate...

It was with this incident that I was told about the inferiority complex..
