My daughter, Eleanor, isn’t even 2 years old yet. But she’s already experienced being bullied for her race！ (half Chinese, half White Canadian).
We were playing downstairs in our community complex, as usual, with a bunch of other kids and grandmas. My daughter spotted a toy she wanted to play with and started walking over to it. Then, it happened. A nearby boy (that we know!) said “DON’T LET THE FOREIGN KID PLAY WITH THE TOY!”.
Luckily she’s too young to understand, but, I imagine this isn’t her last time either. It pains me. I’m a regular reader of /r/Hapas where they talk about all the problems being mixed race in America, but they never think about growing up mixed in China!! A super homogenous society!
P.S. MY DAUGHER IS NOT A FOREIGN BABY! PLEASE DON’T CALL HER “WAIGUO XIAO HAI !!” She was born to a Chinese mother in Guangzhou, has a Chinese passport and has lived her whole life here in China!
