John Nkebi from Uganda had just bought dinner in Cologne, Germany, when his dog got into a fight with another dog. Before he knew it people came running down the stairs and beat him up. ‘They looked outside the window and saw that I was alone, that was the problem, I was alone and two people came down and started to hit me. One of them had a baseball bat.’ John's story is no exception, many people in Europe experience racism on a daily basis.
It’s an African culture to welcome each and every person who comes to you no matter his of her race, color, religion or whether there is an appointment or not. We even have the say: ‘There is no road in the house, every person who comes is a visitor’. I figured out it’s not like that in Europe.
