The shop owner, Chuks Ibe, says he has been in Greece for 20 years without papers and most of his customers are Africans.

"They [Greeks] don't accept you as a black man. Even in my shop you can see a Greek person once in awhile," said Ibe. "I am being patronized by foreigners, my African brothers, but Greeks before they come [it] is late in the night, they are desperate in need of something they will come to you, some they see a black man they leave."

The father of five also says the Greek government does not recognize his children as Greek citizens.

Migrants in Greece Claim Police Target Them

Mr Ibe: you're an ILLEGAL alien. Trying to hide behind being "Black" ain't an excuse to BREAK a country's laws!

I'm guessing Greece doesn't have birthright citizenship either. Oh well. Besides; Mr Ibe, having 5 kids is just out and out STUPID for lawbreakers like you. Sheesh!

What does this say about Africa. Greece has the worst economy in Europe. Yet African migrants wants to live and work there despite all the racism. Crazy.

Default Greeks are Fed up with the Migration from Africa!

I do not blame them. I bet most of the Africans do not even speak Greek? Sound Familiar????

If that guy had no papers and was in Greece illegally, then he should be deported. No sympathy from me on that end. However, there is one thing to consider. Being an American who is Black, I have to wonder if the police would target me. I wouldn't exactly blend in if I ever decided to travel to Greece. And there are more people in Greece there illegally than just Africans. There are some people there illegally who could pass for Greek. How do you tell if someone is there illegally than just by looks?

Birthright citizenship only exists in the Americas (all nations in North and South America have birthright citizenship), and I believe Pakistan is the only non-American country that has birthright citizenship. All others do not

I used to visit Greece a lot in the 1990s. Back then many had issues with Albanians taking the unskilled jobs, similar to what we talk about here with the illegal Latins taking those same types of jobs.

Language, I guess. See my Albanian post. I sure, as an American couldn't tell the difference.

Yeah, really. It's interesting how the mainstream media constantly pushes the belief that all the nations that have been forged by the tenets of Western Civilization are rife with this disease known as "racism", yet half the outside world wants to move into Western Civilization amidst all the terrible "racism".
