NZ Impression- 種族歧視

來了這邊這麼久,第一次感受到種族歧視這麼的嚴重~之前在Rotorua時,被毛利人比中指心情已經不太好了,今天短短的十幾分鐘,站在路邊等公車,第一次被莫名其妙的按喇叭(應該是毛利人),第二次則被紐西蘭人大吼!

害我今天早上那個時候心裡頭真的很不是滋味,因為我們等車的地方比較沒人,所以他們就這樣的對待我們,而我們只是站在路邊,什麼也沒做....他們憑什麼這樣!毛利人因為有些不愛工作,只希望靠政府的救濟金過活,而覺得都是亞洲人的錯,搶走了他們的工作機會~而紐西蘭人則不知為什麼?難道也因為我們搶走他們的機會嗎?可是之前有報導提到,紐西蘭的遊學生佔了來這邊的人口的7%,想想看沒有我們的話,他們的經濟成長不知道要掉多少的%.....之前看Time雜誌提到,到了2005年時,這邊有50%的新生兒不是kiwi,還是亞洲、印度或是混血~可能因為這樣使他們感到壓力吧~但是讓我原本對這邊美好的印象受到損害~或許真的有些亞洲人很糟糕,但是又不是全部!

(Racists)

I have been here for three months. This Saturday was the first time I felt very upset, because I met racists twice in ten minutes.

We went to Mission Bay and enjoyed a nice brunch. After that, we stood on the street and waited for the bus to go back downtown. While we were waiting, many cars passed. The first time, a car honked at us. A few minutes later, another car passed and people in the car yelled loudly at us. What a sad situation! We were standing there waiting for buses, we weren't doing anything bad. How could they treat us like this? I really like New Zealand, but I hate this feeling.

No doubt, there are some bloody Asians, but I believe most Asians are good people. We work hard. We save money to buy new cars and now houses. I think they are jealous, because they think we are taking their job opportunities. Actually, if they work hard, they can get anything they want. They are just too lazy to work.

Teacher comment: That's telling it like it is. I'm so sorry you had to experience prejudice like that. It's sad that people feel so threatened and are so awesome.
