HAVEN’T AFRICANS SUFFERED ENOUGH?


A popular African proverb says:

“When the python fails to act as one, little ones will mistake it for a rope and use it to tie their firewood”.

HAVEN’T AFRICANS SUFFERED ENOUGH?


With broken and bleeding heart, I am constrained to put to writing what we – the black Africans are passing through in and in the hands of some racist Chinese. Racial discrimination has never been so obvious and glaring to me until I came to China.


Every person of colour in China, irrespective of country and racial inclination, has been segregated against on a daily basis in shopping malls, bus stations, subways, public transports, roads, walk ways – you name it. It isn’t something new to me any longer. We have had to choose the best option of accepting and living with the evil and malicious trend as though it doesn’t hurt but the truth is that we don’t have any other option.

Some racists will even have the temerity to tell you to your face that you should GO BACK TO YOUR OWN COUNTRY if you feel hurt because “this is China”. We are faced with so much discrimination that most times when you remember the ill treatment, the ungodly talks and laughter as well as the “finger pointing” you get from all around you, going out becomes a problem as you must have to first conquer the battle in your head before you step out otherwise you will be made to think that you are an abomination for being born black.


Lessons from Corona virus

Following the Covid-19 outbreak in China around December 2019, a little “magic” was wrought as in opening the eyes of Chinese towards the segregation and cruel treatment we faced on a daily basis.


HAVEN’T AFRICANS SUFFERED ENOUGH?



Or so we thought. 


In late January, Chinese worldwide were rightfully crying foul because people were distancing themselves from them – in malls and in subways. People won’t sit with them on the same seat in public buses and in subways, people pointed fingers at them while murmuring to themselves in indistinct voices and avoided close contact. 


They cried and lamented endlessly on national TV and on social media. They sought empathy and sympathy and didn’t see reasons why they should be treated with such disdain. 


They made placards with the inscriptions like “I am a Chinese, I am not the virus” “Hug me, I am a human being and not a virus” and walked the streets looking for peoples’ empathy and love – the same love they couldn’t give to foreigners in their home country.

We were both ‘surprised’ and “hopeful”! Surprised because we thought that since many are racists and discriminate against people, they shouldn’t feel bad when treated the same way and then we were hopeful that finally, perhaps they will learn to treat foreigners right when all this is over but guess what? We were utterly wrong – they didn’t change a bit, rather, they became even worse or perhaps showed us the other side of them we never saw – they proved unequivocally that some Chinese are bent on their wickedness and malicious treatment on Africans and to the extent of even destroying us entirely if they could.


Mind  you  that  during  the  heat  of  all  this,Africans in China never for once treated them badly or segregated against them. We volunteered our resources, time and talents towards the war against corona. We prayed for China, we made videos urging people to stay strong and not  segregate against the Chinese. We sang songs of solidarity for China and . We took to social media platforms encouraging people to support and stand with China during the corona outbreak. 


We donated, and while other countries were repatriating their nationals, we volunteered our manpower during the disinfection of public places.

We didn’t run back to our countries- we stayed back and fought with China. And while the Western and European countries were closing their borders to the Chinese, ours were still open and receiving an influx of Chinese nationals everyday. African air spaces were still receiving flights from China. 


All this wasn’t because we don’t value our lives but because we love every human being alike and according to one of our proverbs, we believe that a problem for one is a problem for all and so fighting along with China in their darkest hours is born out of the natural love we have for humanity despite the fact that we have always been at the receiving end of racial subjugations, prejudices and tendentious malignancy.


One of us wrote an interesting article then at the heat of the outbreak in China titled “ it Already”. It went viral within hours because the resonates with what we, the Africans experience in around China on a daily basis. We prayed they read the article and understand what we suffer in their hands and probably learn that discrimination and racial segregation is evil and inhumane and that no one should be subjected to such treatment but I bet you – many never did.

Now, we are faced with this new form of parallel subjugation and as a way to say “thank you Africans” for standing with us during the heat of the corona virus outbreak. Many Chinese have now turned against the Africans – we are now the virus and the people to be castigated. We are not allowed in public places any longer, we can’t go shopping, we can’t buy food and eat food in restaurants, we can’t take public transports and the list goes on and on. As though these weren’t enough, we have now been made to stay in doors on compulsory self-quarantine without 

prior notice and in some cases thrown out of the house on few hours’ notice just because we are black Africans.


The corona virus is now becoming the foreigners’ disease and guess who the foreigners are? Maybe I don’t need to spell that out too.



This might sound a bit okay and fine considering the fact that the fight for corona virus is still ongoing but these are residents who never left their homes since the lockdown was enforced in the region and assuming that wasn’t enough, why not issue that all foreigners be tested accordingly if you don’t want to include the Chinese residents? Why single out only Africans?

A video that went viral sometime last week  about  a Nigerian that bit a Chinese nurse in the eye while trying to escape from the quarantine center has also got me and several others thinking. “Why would a huge African man like him bite a Chinese nurse because she tried to stop him from escaping? Why didn’t he beat her instead? Why haven’t we seen any video of the actual molestation or does it mean there wasn’t any, not even from a CCTV?” Has anyone ever bothered to ask why the said man is escaping from a hospital where he should have hopes of surviving (since he has been diagnosed and declared positive as claimed) into the unknown where he could possibly die of the virus? Has anyone cared to ask why they (the Chinese nurses) take his blood sample not less than three times every day for several days without clear explanation as to why it is so? Let me leave you with these questions for now.


However, in Nigeria for instance, Chinese nationals even at the heat of the corona pandemic were living and enjoying themselves peacefully without any harassment whatsoever and without giving them an ultimatum for compulsory quarantine – what an irony?


STOP IT ALREADY!!!


I want to ask the Chinese… Where is your human sympathy? Are you people really this wicked? Why just Africans, what happens to other foreign nationals in China or are Africans the only people who could get infected? Even when you know we still have the lowest number of cases and deaths in the whole of Africa put together than in any single European country? Why do you hate Africans especially blacks so much and what is really your motive behind all these ‘drama’? So many questions in my mind now and I know for certain that the same goes to every other African out there.


What have we done for goodness sake?

We still understand that decorum should be applied in dealing with some sensitive issues as this because not all the Chinese are this cruel but when so many have proven their eternal hatred towards black Africans despite what their nationals do, gain and enjoy in Africa, one has got to question the imbalance and ask pertinent Questions.


We provide them with the best of luxury and some of them make demeaning videos in some remote villages in Africa and upload in their social media where they ridicule and laugh in derision at our villages and local way of life yet we ignore them and see them as one of their problems as regards to civility. 


But one has got to rise up and do something otherwise, our next generation will grow up 

to face the same mistreatment unwarranted and irrational attitude of hostility. The full impact of this social malady will eventually become a national cum continental holocaust unless a vigorous war is waged against it NOW!!!
