In Response To: An African English teacher in China (Denis)

Hi Denis DNT

I am really glad you are out there lighting a candle. You have explained your situation so well! The ignorance that is called racism is truly beyond me, but I know that people are a product of their upbringing and so I hope that the next generation changes all that for the better.

I am sorry to hear the way it is for Africans in China. I have many African friends both in Africa and in places like Malaysia and Morocco, and I do understand the hardships and discriminations faced by many of them. I had hoped China would be different and it distresses me to find that it isn't.

When will be able to share the world, have no borders, come and go like free human beings? When can we rejoice in our differences as well as our similarities? When will the quality of someone's character be more important than the colour of their skin? I hope I live to see that glorious day!

I came across your article because I was thinking of doing a TESOL course here in Australia which arranges teaching jobs in China or Vietnam.

All the very best for the future and may you go from success to success in your teaching career.
