Sub-humans who believe they’re better than humans

POINTBLANK

If Kenyans (and by this I mean wananchi not wenye nchi) had some money to spare, I would advise them to make annual pilgrimages to Germany, a beautiful country with beautiful people.

Unfortunately, the country, just like ours, has some very ugly people as well. A clique of small-minded people who think black is inferior have Kenyans living in parts of Germany very worried.

Attacks against Kenyans by the Neo-Nazis are on the rise. According to a blogspot popular among Kenyans in Germany (mkenyaujerumani.blogspot.com), a Kenyan woman was attacked in Brandenburg at the end of last year. She was kicked and insulted “because she is black”.

Early this year a Kenyan was reportedly attacked in Effurt, the second attack against him. He was hit with a bottle and washed with beer.

The racially-motivated attacks are not only peculiar to Germany. In Austria, a Kenyan woman is still recuperating from injuries she sustained after she was pushed onto railway tracks in Vienna by a man who accused her of being too loud on phone. Strange that some still think they are more human than others in this time and age.
