Africans being bullied in here
August 17, 2011 12:07pm CST
As a Malaysian, I have to said that I notice racism is serious towards africans who work, study and live here. Few months ago, I befriended an african who later asked me to be his girlfriend. I disagreed and never meet him anymore. Some are doing crimes like drugs and brothels here which makes me worried and scared. The reason is our government do not hire africans. They can only do business on their own. Such a pity. When a Malaysian sees an african on the streets, they will walk away as if they are the saint. This is not right. We Malaysian should not do that. Every human being has his good and bad. I truly encourage Malaysians to make friends with Africans and all other races to improved themselves and the country. I saw a blog just now and wasn't happy to see how the Africans being treated and how reluctant Malaysian towards them. What's your opinion on this matter?

hi choi yee! We can't blame Malaysians alone because they always showed that most of them committed the crime here.I did not say that we are good people and the africans are not, but we know that when some of them doing wrong things the effects will cover the whole group even though the others are innocent or because of one person fault everyone in troubles. So still the citizens fault?? It is what the media show us..It is the way how they carried themselves here. But like I said there are some of them who are good people, remind me of my college days and my friends' experience. Not all of them are bad friend.

I very much agree with CT. That one is a bad apple. Never give out your personal details to anyone that you have just met. We have heard of many cases that have happened, so we should be careful and alert at all times. There may be good Africans that we have met, but who's to know what's their real intention.

Relly hard to trust them..when my younger sister made her first semester in one of the private college there a lots of africans there. There even some live as her neighbor and they are good guys/students but it does not mean they are all okay..my sister said she always feel quit scared because the group like to make noise and when they get together they look more dangerous...We are not being racists but when we are there get surrounded by them make you feel uncomfortable thus make you think something is not going well too~(^^)

I think its not because of Malaysian's are racist but those African friends who created this reputation with their criminal acts. In my country they are very few in numbers but we did not allowed them to be symbol of fear for our society so they are living under our cultural shadow instead of their world wide known bad label. So we have nothing with them when they move in our streets or roads. Cheers

Sadly, racism is everywhere and most nations look at them in color. In my country there are lots of African too. They come to study and I met one from my University too. They seem to be very open minded, and you know what, when you talk to them, you will understand how it feel like to be underestimated because of their race. Some black men do bad things, but not all of them. Some of them have a clean heart too.

How do you think best in terms of race or nationality when born, no one asks you what you want to be white, black, German, English, etc. .. We are not born nor black, nor white, neither Americans nor the Romans, we are born men, and all are equal from birth, regardless of race or nationality, think alike, feel alike, have the same needs and same anatomy. Racism, nationalism, extremism, etc.., Are forms of hatred and madness brought to climax by lack of education and wisdom, a patient living environment. The man has no one to blame for the environment in which it grew, and changed not bad man, but must be ugly and changed the environment in which to live and live, man must be pitied and helped to overcome the condition.

It's funny how other countries worry about racism, and our citizens here are very much hospitable to tourists and are considerably hostile to countrymen who are of different tribe, group or region. Our country has many tribes or ethnic groups and discrimination is very much present from each to other. I just hope we learn to love our own first before learning to love others more.

I think racism is in every county but I agree that there is good an bad in every race an religions One of the good things about where I was born in the U.s.a. is it was a melting pot an we had neighbors of every color an religions living around us so we all played together all like my mom said we were all brought up color blind we never judge anyone by what they looked like an I think god my daughters are the same way but you are also right it is not right the way people treat each other with out knowing what type of people they are
