Dr. Umar Johnson, an African American, was so shocked when he arrived in China to realize racism against blacks there was so brazenly open and official that he still finds it hard to understand why Africa is rolling out the red carpet for China.
In an interview with the Breakfast Club, Dr. Johnson said there were many places where blacks were told to their faces they could not go because of the color of their skin.
There were also clubs where blacks were barred from going. And many other places where blacks were legally barred from going or even loitering around.
It was not clear when the interview was recorded, but it appeared not to be too long ago.
African nations are opening the doors to China with big, secret loans, that many have warned would certainly turn into debt traps.
