When is the last time you've experienced racism or witnessed it?
Experiences shape the way we see life, and so do witnessing things. For the longest time, I hadn’t experienced racism and I almost thought that it barely happened. I also hadn’t witnessed any racism for a long time too.
Just a few days ago, I was driving in my car from toyota, and listening to some Korean music. I had my windows rolled down, and my music wasn’t blasting or anything, and someone yelled “Go back to Tokyo!” in a mocking Asian tone (my ethnicity is Chinese, but I am Canadian). At first, it didn’t register in my brain that she was being offensive… but after, it really upset me!
So, when was the last time you witnessed or experienced racism?
