AFRICA: Stop undermining each other
In Toronto, we lived across the street from one of the biggest Chinese suparmarkets.
There was also a great Chinese restaurant we frequented weekly.
This one time before I took Becky into the restaurant, something had happened and I was super upset (doesn’t take much to upset me though).
A Ugandan I had helped to start a Moving Company was not getting any clients from the Ugandan community. His truck broke down and he took it to a Chinese garage.
I asked him why he did not take the truck to Ugandan garage owners.
REPLY: “They are jealous people. They think if they help me, I will become richer than them”.
But what is interesting is what the Chinese garage manager told him “Have you seen Chinese take their cars to be fixed in none Chinese garages? Why do black people give business to us when they could give their own people the business?”
Rebecca was being a 3yr old and kept asking all the waiters “Where is my treat?”
Finally, the lady who was running that shop showed up personally with Becky’s treats. This restaurant knew the kid very well.
The manager proceeds to call all her staff to come and meet her Favourite client. Then she proceeded to introduce her staff “They are all from China. I helped them to immigrate to Canada and in return, they are helping their families”. Becky stares at her “So, mommy could also bring in people from Uganda?”
The way the Chinese care for each other (same with India). They help each other to succeed. They sacrifice to help their people.
Ugandans are more like “If I help you, you will be better off than me”. Ugandans have a tendency of wanting to keep their people under them. They hardly will help anyone who might be better than them.
My philosophy “If you succeed, you will buy me a ticket to fly home, house me, feed me and in future, if I need money, you will be so rich you will send me money”.
STOP SABOTAGING YOUR OWN PEOPLE. They are the ones you should promote, support and encourage.
