Black woman refused entry into a Shopping Centre in China

Videos and Audios Black woman refused entry into a Shopping Centre in China

Reports of racism towards Africans in China continue to emerge with the latest excuse for this primitive behaviour being blamed on the Coronavirus.

After five Nigerians tested positive for COVID-19 in Guangzhou, China, the government ordered all residents of African descent to quarantine for 14 days, a move that led to businesses and landlords to issue evictions and bans that many in the African community said were based on discrimination.Following the outbreak, Guangzhou officials announced that all residents of African descent—about 4,500 people—must quarantine for 14 days “regardless of their previous circumstances or how long they have been in Guangzhou,” reported the South China Morning Post, adding that African residents’ homes will be monitored with tracking devices that will alert officials if they “open the door.”

The ban led to reports of African residents being evicted and banned from businesses; people have taken to social media to document evicted African residents sleeping on the street, interacting with police and Nigerian diplomats delivering food to their now-homeless compatriots, causing foreign ministers of Uganda, Kenya, Ghana and Nigeria to speak out in protest.

  1. Can someone (preferably in leadership) explain to me why we treat the Chinese as Kings in Zambia and give them red carpet treatment? Even though time and time again they have proved to be racist, and their workmanship shoddy at best. We will continue to be treated like pigs if all we know id how to beg. Come on Africa! Lets develope ourselves.Lets trade with each other..otherwise we will forever be slaves

  2. They brought the disease now blaming Africans. We have a problem here in Zambia and Africa as a whole. Surely those Chinese brought the disease now mistreating our brothers and sisters back here in Africa we were treating them like Kings why?

  6. This type of behaviour happens in lots of small areas that are not fully integrated. I know even in America and Europe there are small towns where such behaviour is prevalent by a small minority. Therefore to paint all Chinese in zambia as racist is just childish and overly emotional. The reason people feel so comfortable to be racist against African in diaspora is because of the self hate of diasporans. Look at how the diasporans here look down on their own government and country. So how do you expect a foreigner to love you and respect you l?

  7. Cat power you are again showing how feeble minded you are. Please read my comment above. In terms of action to be taken, we have not received a complaint from a single zambian. We asked you all to register with our embassies but you think you are too good to do that. So when things go wrong you shouldn’t blame the government. You spend all day looking down on your country and then get hurt when the owners of the country that has adopted you look down on you ? The dat you start loving and become proud of your roots is the day that your colonial masters will fear you and possibly kick you out because their agenda is to keep Africa behind. Wake up

    • there you go again as.s licking because you’re broke. Zambians face a lot of racism from within Zambia by by employers and you put your tails between your legs. I work for a firm owned by foreigners and many of us work here so I don’t experience what you are saying they sack people on the spot.you are scuttle minded and can see what a curse our late Sata left with kaponyas in our history as a first running the country. you’re. I really cry for levy. We made the mistake from FTJ then corrected the really Screwed up

  8. And its not just asians because even in Europe and elsewhere they see you Africans in diaspora as second class inferior humans. The only difference is that in Europe it is hidden and done behind your back until you bring out by angering the racist. They play on your weakness which is your self hate for your continent. Look at the comments we get here from diasporans hating on their own country and leaders. Even when we are doing better than them at managing the pandemic. Then you wonder when you are disrespected there? Whether you gained their nationality or bleached your skin,to them you will always be an African. Wake up abena tarino anonymous and the other slaves

  9. Value of a human being at an international level depends on average achievement of that race. Average achievement of any race is in direct proportion to its average IQ. Unfortunately we have not performed well at international level. This is the reason we are being mistreated. Poor leadership in black African countries.

  10. Chinese are not superhuman they face the same descrimination in the west, it is unfortunate that they use it on the new found Africa but the moment we blacks react against them, it will be worse than what Europeans did to us. We still have terrible wounds of racism and arpatheid in Africa societies. They better stop it now.

  11. Didn’t learn lessons from slavery, didn’t learn lessons from colonialism, hw arevwe going to learn lessons from engagement with the Chinese?

  12. Africans have suffered discrimination at the hands of Europeans, South African whites and Asians in and outside the continent. But we seem to accept this as a world order. What a shame!

  13. This Kaizer Zulu is an example of an african with low self esteem who will genuflect to any foreigner. Firstly every Zambian in Zambia has a relative abroad and its those relatives who sponsor the people in Zambia with money for school fees etc.. You need to realise that Zambians in the diaspora are not your enemies but a great asset with whom you should partner to build a better Zambia. It’s not a secret that racism towards blacks is exhibited by whites and chinese but its a traversity for black man to oppose his fellow black man in favor of these same racists.

  14. Typical of KZ approving racism against people of African descent in China, America and Europe on account that they express their views to their home governments. KZ feels uncomfortable to hear comments that our Zambian president is lazy and inactive does not know what’s going on and who is doing what. KZ says its self hate of diasporans that generates critique directed at some of these African governments. Well, we repeat if leaders are lazy surrounded by corrupt cronies and cadreism takes over of the running national affairs, then these are vigilante regimes. For instance, if Lusambo takes over running of Police Services, then IG should be relieved of his duties or Davies Mwila a PF cadre, appoints ministers to a commission of inquiry, then the president is sleeping. All these big…

  15. All these big issues goes to the core of governance and rule of law, Is the president aware that detention of Australian CEO of Mopani Copper mine boarders on diplomatic issues because CEO has not committed an offence to merit detention. Zambian government had all the time to sort out the mine saga without before issue of detention orders. We raise substantive issues that demand answers from a responsible leader and not cheap usual responses of PF regalia illegal face masks as being on top of issues.

  16. KZ insulting well meaning citizens will not insulate you as public enemy of Zambia. You or impostor, Zambians will not forget that you have harassed, beaten, maimed, humiliated, kidnapped, fired guns and shot Zambians and dehumanise Zambians. Zambians deserve justice and time is coming to get it. Cleansing yourself on this site will not wash up, records, living witnesses exist and testimonies will be in your face.

  18. Mona and the other silly buffoons in diaspora , it is not funny that now you are the ones calling for superiority of Africans? And yet you spend all day here criticising your country and calling us dull africans and throwing all sorts of insults. Now that I have called you out on your behaviour as the reason you are experiencing racism there, you claim that I m an African with low esteem and that I am promoting racism. The last I checked, I am not the one who deserted by country and ran away to the Same people that colonised my country. Last I checked I am not the one who insults my own country and its leadership while comparing it to European standards. Learn to love and respect yourself before others love and respect you. I am proud of my country and that is why I live and here and…

  19. Please understand that this Chinese racism against black Africans is not just starting now because of COVID-19.
    Racism was happening in China against Africans even before the virus. There are many hotels that never allowed black people to lodge in. On buses, once a black person sits down, the Chinese near him move to other seats. In elevators, if a black person walks in, the Chinese people move out leaving the African alone. Or they close the elevator door, before a black person can come in. These were happening before COVID- 19. And yet in Zambia, thanks to clueless corrupt Lungu who has sold Zambia to the Chinese, you worship these Chinese people. They even look down on you, even in your own country. What a shame.

  20. @dweny today you want to rely on the African president who you insult day in day out and call useless ? Today he has become useful to help you because you see a threat against your lives in diaspora ? You think we should jump around for you in diaspora because you are better than other Africans here ? We have more important and serious issues to deal with here to help our citizens. If you are racially attacked the first port of call is the authorities there to allow them to investigate. We cannot act based on allegations without factual investigations. I hope this teaches those in diaspora to respect their roots.yoj will alaua be considered visitors there even if you obtain their passports. Kz

  23. Kaizer Zulu, now I see that you’re a complete id1ot. Have you ever lived in America? Where in America would this happen? If this happened in America, that shopping mall would be sued for millions of dollars. It’s foolish people like you and clueless Lungu that’ll cause Africa to be colonized again. This is not the only instance of racism in China. Racism in China is well documented, even before COVID-19. And, unlike in the West, Chinese racism is right out in the open. They don’t even hide it. While you’re busy here trying to defend them, they would still look down on you, and even bar you from lodging in their hotels. Even the Chinese in Zambia still look down on you. Wake the heck up, you ignoramus.

  25. @ independent the colonialists in your adopted homes asked you to jump, and you flew all the way to them to take up menial jobs that are bringing you in close proximity to covid 19- it is for this reason that statistics show in America and UK that blacks and minorities are disproportionately affected or infected by the virus.

  26. Yet we treat them like gods in Africa Africa because in Africa, they own shops in our countries where we rush to buy things unlike our brothers and sisters in foreign countries who own nothing. When will Africa upgrade so that our children can attain quality education and find an abundance of jobs within our own countries? Are we going to continue giving them our minerals to enrich their countries whilst we get peanuts, huge holes and toxic substances in our air, land and waters? Africa must upgrade from being an extraction zone of precious minerals and timber to a favorable trading zone where other continents will come and buy not extract but buy our products.

  27. So, slimy Kaizer Zulu, how much are the Chinese paying you to be defending their clear racism towards the Africans? Are they paying you per hour or what? I would love to see you go to that mall and see if they allow you to get in. I bet they would kick you out real quick. Then that would be a wake-up call for you. Wake the heck up and stop defending the indefensible. If you were really Lungu’s adviser, now I understand why corrupt Lungu is so clueless. That explains it.

  29. Lie detector, you appear addicted to the same old lies you have told yourself. Anyone else is to blame other than yourself. The great minds say, sometimes look within yourself to find the solution to your problem. I have not defended any act of racism and yet again your stubborn dry head is telling you this in order to avoid facing up to the facts before you. I live in Zambia and have confidence in our malls here. Why would I even dream of emigrating to places such as those? Immigration is not a guaranteed right and you are not guaranteed a positive reception in a foreign man’s land. Same way even here I have witnessed Zambians issue disparaging remarks against Chinese, calling them all sorts of names. But do they cry about it ? No , because they realise no one forced them to come here…

  31. My shameless ‘Muzungu anikonde’ bululu in Lusaka treat Chinese like small gods by taking them out for expensive tours, dinners, concerts, etc and let them lodge at his estate for free while he neglects his own blood siblings, nephews and nieces in the village. He would make videos of his outings with his Chinese gods and send the clips to his suffering siblings and their children in the village to make them jealous. I wonder if a Chinese in China would do the same for black Zambian couples at the expense of his Chinese family’s misery!?

  32. @Kaizer Zulu…I’ve read through your posts, and payed extra attention to your intellectual reasoning in your arguments. You’re not very well educated or exposed. You need to go back to school and learn more about logical reasoning and the world around you. You’re here criticizing the Zambians in diaspora. Are you aware that there’s what’s called freedom of movement? It’s a human right. People will move to other places in search of opportunities and there’s nothing wrong with that. That’s why you have all these Chinese in Zambia. They’re there looking for opportunities too, just like Zambians go abroad to look for opportunities. But you’re here criticizing your fellow countrymen in diaspora for the same thing the Chinese are doing in Zambia…namely, looking for opportunities…

  33. …. In your myopic view, you believe that the right to freedom of movement does not apply to black people, but only to other races of people, such as whites, Indians, Arabs the Chinese, etc. These, you believe, are the only races with the right to move around the globe and live in other places, other than their own countries, and not the Zambians. That’s a sign of low self esteem, which you want to project to all Zambians. But we refuse to be a part of it. Secondly, Zambians in diaspora CONTRIBUTE IMMENSELY TO ZAMBIA’S GDP annually through remittances. They remit hundreds of thousands of dollars, or pounds, or Euros, if not millions per year. The Zambian diaspora are supposed to be your partners in developing Zambia. Lungu has no clue how to connect with the diaspora to tap into…

  35. … their financial resources that can help develop Zambia. Because Lungu has had advisers like you, most likely convincing him that the diaspora are failures who hate Zambia and are enemies of their own country. We all would’ve loved for Lungu to have been a great president. But he’s not. We criticize because we love our country and see that Lungu is systematically damaging it, and taking the country in the wrong direction through corruption and mediocrity. Stop being so narrow minded. Get some education.

  36. I call upon GRZ to summon the Chinese ambassador to explain the meaning of what their people are doing to Africans in China. Tell them that it will not be good if Africans also retaliated against the Chinese in Africa. Tell them bluntly while looking into their eyes. Give them an ultimatum of 24 hour to stop their backward behaviour. Covid-19 has its roots in china…the Chinese have spread it world over and now they want to lump it on Africa.. what an evil race are the Chinese.

  38. Without economic power, Africans have no leverage at all. Therefore, all the complaining and protesting by some African leaders, is futile. It will only bring temporary relief. But long term, it will be back to contemptuous treatment.

  39. KZ, This plat form is not for State House to issue threats to bloggers as you do. You closed Prime TV, to begin to issue wild threats to anyone who has an opinion is proof of a KLEPTOCRACY GOVERNMENT of PF.
    Its people like you and your egoistic attitude that have destroyed the PF regime to be the most loathsome regime in the history of Zambia.
    We intend to repeat and remind Zambians that KZ is public enemy number one in Zambia. Zambians can not forget the terror, humiliation, beatings, kidnappings and harassments they have been subjected to by KZ. Zambians deserve justice and if the current courts fail to redress victims and complainants of KZ, the next generation will as evidence exist and living witnesses will one day face KZ in court.

  42. Unfortunately for us, we won’t be boycotting any Chinese products and something similar.
    Whatever happened to Pan-Africanism? Bias, racial remarks or assault on one black person (African) is bias, racial remarks or assault on all of us blacks (Africans). Our lack of unity is what got us colonised. It seems we haven’t learnt anything from colonisation. I’m appalled that our foreign ministry can’t do anything because no Zambian has allegedly been racially targeted.
    It doesn’t matter if the Chinese doing the racial stuff on our brothers and sisters in China are ignorant or simply a minority racist. The lives of our African brothers and sisters living in China matter.
    Respective govts in Africa through the toothless AU should do something about before, we the citizens do something…

  44. @ex-moma, Remember how Zambians were asking their government to stop flights from China landing into Zambia at the very height of COVID-19. The answer was that this would be xenophobia. Then Prime tv reported of a Chinese who was sick with virus symptoms, followed by the dropping of Prime TV from topstar and some customers protested. The next thing is the tv station was closed. Folks the Chinese are running the show. As they say, he who pays the Piper calls the tune. Remember what Sata called them while in opposition; investors (for investors.) The tune changed as soon as he took office. 100 of them were invited to state house for a feast and the rest is history.

  45. @ wanya I am not afraid of any man on this planet. I only fear jehovah the almighty.

    Aha my brother lusambo good to see you here after our phone call last night. Welcome to lusakatimes. This is the future platform for campaigns and engaging with a wide range of people on a large scale while pushing party agenda as discussed. I know you are busy keeping lusaka safe, but I hope to see more of you here. Kz

  46. @KZ or whoever the twat you are, You criticize all Zambians in the diaspora and then claim that you are only afraid of jehovah. The irony of it all!!!! Who brought the mighty jehovah as a pretense to enslave Africa?!? That is how dumb you are!. You are, after all, a lab technician from Chelston clinic. Sit down – ulibe nzelu

  49. @all of you commenting and reading

    So long as Africans remain the same i.e. can’t innovate or create any decent product that is needed by humanity, can’t rule or lead, cannot respect each other (case where a person is held in high esteem because of the color of their skin (we even do it among ourselves, those blacks with lighter skin are perceived as more beautiful hence jarribing). You go to a restaurant and a black will treat a white foreigner better than their own, also happens in stores. You hirer a fellow Zambian as a maid or gardener and try to treat them with respect and give them fair wage, they still from you but will work well for an abusive Chinese or Indian (seen it). Even Zambian builders contracted directly (i.e Zambian to zambia) produce [email protected] and steal from you…

  50. Look let’s not respond to this by turning against each other. This pandemic has increased racist/discriminatoy behaviour. Not just to Africans but to the Asians themselves. Here in the West Chinese are greatly under attack. Narrow minded people turn to racist behaviour.

    However, African govts should seek to get our children into housing by working with the Chinese govt. There is a lot of nonsense behaviour by opposition seeking to use this period to point fingers and allege economic mismanagement even though this is affecting countries globally. We need to stop hyperventilating and fight the covid-19 battle and mostly, let’s admit WE NEED HELP internationally. Stop blaming. Solutions please.

    Thanks for pointing it out……as Africans we need to open our eyes….lets do business from Cape to Cairo…..lets market Victoria Falls to our fellow Africans…lets invite Egyptians, Kenyans,Tanzanians and the entire Africa to come and enjoy holidays in Livingstone not only appealing to the Western world….we have enough natural resources….remember Sky news in England was telling the whole world that Victoria falls is dry…when it was actually dry season….western world don’t want us to develop

  52. Africa because of over borrowing you see now how china is treating you like trash when we tell you don’t over borrow you don’t listen.

  53. Africa should try to stay away from china lets see were there going to sale their rubbish cheap quality products but as long as we have leaders like KZ i don’t see it happening.

  54. GRZ please don’t accept the Chinese covid19 vaccines as they are fake n meant to poison y’all in the long run. Abo Bantu bafuna complete takeover of the continent ndaba bapakisa kwabo….open your eyes bane.

  55. The problem is we have been taught to think we are inferior and hate ourselves. We need to start loving ourselves and and understand that we are just as human as every other races who think less of us. We should not be desperate to think that we need a foreigner for our development like the politicians have made us to believe when they are always loud and global trotting begging for them to come and invest in our communities. They are too protected hence they abuse us in our own yards and you wonder! Those Africans being persecuted in China should be repatriated back to their respective countries asap and we start sending back Chinese out of Africa equally. Let us have pride and protect our people from hate and slavery treatment!
