Have You Ever Been Racially Abused,if Yes How Did You Felt/reacted by Nobody: 3:32pm On Feb 19, 2015
Recently a video went viral online showing Chelsea. Fans denying a black man from boarding a Paris Metro plane,I really felt disturbed seeing that video because I couldn't just imagine how the man £must have felt because I was once in a situation of racial abuse like him,but mine was on twitter. I would have pasted the racial tweets towards me by the white dude but he deactivated his accounted when other tweeters condemned his act. I actually felt like crying that night cos I was so emotionally disturbed.
So I want to ask if anyone has ever been racially abused and how u felt/reacted

Yeah. I'm Black British (Jamaican parents) and I've been racially abused several times.
From when I was younger:
-My Bangladeshi friend saying I couldn't come into her house, because I wasn't Asian like them. I had to stand outside, waiting for them by the gate before school, while they were all inside.
-When I was in class I remember a couple of white boys making fun of my skin colour.
-Somethimes the Asian girls would say I couldn't do things with them because I wasn't Muslim. Religious discrimination?
-I lived near a football (soccor) stadium, and there always used to be drunk fans stumbling around after the game. I can remember being racially abused, and my mum was pretty upset about it.
Now I'm "older" (I'm 17):
-I was with my mum, and she sat down next to this overweight white guy. As soon as she did so, he said "Alright, alright!" in a defensive, upset manner. He said a few other things, then once he got off the bus, he stood right in front of the door, and stood there doing a Nazi salute for about 20 seconds, until the bus drove off.

Ugh! I have a couple more stories, too.

Power full speech by Kayne West at the BET on winning the Visionary award,talks about racism.
You can go to Linda Ikeji blog for the full speech,he basically turned to a human right activist on stage.
