I was in my class one day and I was chosen to answer a question. I answered and it was wrong. Then these two boys in my class decided they wanted to make a comment about how I’m Asian and therefore am supposed to be really smart. They called me a stupid Asian since I didn’t know the answer. This went on for a while and they chose to use other harsh stereotypes at points in the school year. My friend stood up for me and then the teacher yelled at her to stop being so loud. I told the teacher what they had said to me and she said they were just joking and not to make a big deal about it. When I told my parents this, they didn’t want me in this environment so they chose to put me in a different class with a different teacher.
Today an apparently magrebi man who was traveling in a train from Pamplona to Zaragoza couldn’t pay the ticket (he needed 1,15€ more). No one helped him. The reviser has told him to get off the train and he went completely mad. Finally, the reviser pulled him out in a village in the middle of nowhere while saying “I’m racist because of people like you”, and “If you are in our country respect our rules”, and shouting “this is how this people has to be treated”. No one said a word, and even a few people congratulated the reviser. I wasn’t there, but my boyfriend was so he has told me (no, he didn’t say anything either). Europe is going back to Germany during the beginning of the 30’s decade.
Hoy un hombre con acento magrebi que viajaba en un tren Pamplona-Zaragoza no tenía dinero suficiente para pagar el billete (a falta de 1,15€). Nadie le ha ayudado, y el revisor le ha dicho que tenía que bajarse del tren. El hombre en cuestión se ha enfadado y el revisor le ha echado diciendo: “Soy racista por gente como tú”, o “Si vives en nuestro país respeta nuestras normas”, y luego ha gritado: “Así hay que tratar a esta gente”. El hombre ha sido expulsado del tren en un pueblo en medio de la nada. Nadie ha dicho absolutamente nada, incluso hay quienes le han felicitado. No lo he vivido en primera persona, me lo ha contado mi novio, quien iba en el tren y, por cierto, no ha hecho nada. Europa está como Alemania a principios de los años 30.
Yesterday I was waiting at a bus stop. I was approached by a white man who started mocking me and talking to me as if I were a very young child. He started using derogatory terms such as nigga and saying he came from Africa, to further mock me. I’m from India. I’m also only 15, and it’s the first time I’ve ever been harassed like this. When I simply wasn’t responding, he began yelling at me, and called me a bitch several times, and started saying extremely rude and dirty things, and finally said “this bloody immigrant thinks she’s the sh**,” and that all he wanted to do was “pick up chicks.” I began crying and wishing I could’ve done something about it, and shout back at him. I’m not sure how long this incident will haunt me for.
I recently moved to New York from my native country and was trying to figure my way back to my apartment it was about 9 pm. Suddenly a man started walking beside me saying “hey beautiful wanna go somewhere. ” I tried to ignore him thinking that if I did he would get fed up and go away. But he didn’t. He continued saying “what you don’t like black? ” “too big for you? ” I thought it was enough and said leave me alone but he caught up on my accent saying that if “I can’t face NYC then I should have just stayed in Asia ” and walked away cursing me. I don’t know of I feel the same about NYC anymore .
I was waiting at the crosswalk to cross the street. Three men walked by. One yelled, “Damn, Ling Ling! You’ve got an ASS!”
Earlier this morning I saw a group of 4 Jewish guys walking down the street with their Kippahs on being harassed by 2 racist assholes. They even flipped up the Nazi hand symbol and shouted “Death to Israel”. One of them then said “Where’s Hitler when you need him?” Fucking assholes. I told the harasses to fuck off and asked the Jewish guys if they were ok. It felt good to help but I was honestly shaking after that.
I’m 13 and I’m thickly built. At school, i get everything from cat calls Tomas’s grabbings. One day in particular, a boy came up to me and whispered, “you’re gonna ride my d*** like you ride a roller coaster. Once you go black you never go back baby.” I believe it doesn’t matter your skin for one, and that is was completely un-appropriate and disgusting, especially for our ages.
This morning I was harassed and followed for three blocks by a man on my way to the office from the Farragut West metro. This man walked closely next to and behind me, making lewd remarks about the way I looked, how I walked and about being Asian. He was loud, sometimes shouted, and on the sidewalk and at street corners other commuters stared and didn’t say a word. I lost him when I ducked into a cafe to make sure he didn’t follow me into my office building. I’ve been shaking and upset all day.
Bugün okulda Kürtleri ve ibneleri istemiyoruz diyen 2 kişi arkamdan hakaret etti. Sözlü tacizle homofobi ve kürtfobi saldırıya uğradım. Üniversite okuyan öğrencilerin bu şekilde davranmaları aldıkları eğitimleri gösteriyor.
Today 2 people insulted me from behind saying “we do not want Kurds and fags at school”. I was verbally attacked with anti-kurdish harassment and homophobia. Students attending college have been receiving training to behave this way.
A series of ongoing incidents has left me feeling isolated and hesitant to socialise. I am often followed home by a person in a car who will use very degrading language (shouted out of the car window,or a series of hoots to alert my attention) it seems that they want me to know that they are following me as they are in cars and i am on foot (there is often more than one person or different cars),it is difficult to identify then. On a regular basis the car will hoot outside in a neighbouring street always within an hour of me getting home.
the same group have also been spreading rumours within my social circle referring to me with discriminatory references to people who are then discouraged from communicating or socialising with me to the degree that my entire social circle have become misinformed about me (with gossip and lies). For some time now i have been living an isolated existence which consists of receiving verbal abuse and being told i am unworthy of being helped . They often use ethnic and sexual references and paint a picture of ‘dirty’,’slut’ and many other references to make it unappealing to reach out. As i cant identify these people they just continue to getting kicks out of making my life like a prison.
