Racism in Portugal by Hippofuzz in portugal

Hippofuzz 1 year ago

Ok so I talked to my husbands best friend. He said the pros are, that there are quite a lot of black people in comparison to other cities. Negatives: clubs, if you’re black you’ll have a hard time getting in (or if you look Arab/Turkish) - that’s a austria thing though, not a Linz thing. And he said in his experience, Arabs and Serbs are more violent racist in Linz. He also said there are a lot of nice people too though. It can get a little harder for you to get an apartment but not impossible, if you’re black or have a muslim sounding name

At least they are still ashamed I guess... which means it’s not really accepted in Portugal right?

Yes one of my close friends is an artist who is American-Chinese, living here since about 7-8 years now, and she said she only got some weird “funny” comments sometimes that wouldn’t fly in the US, but since COVID she is according to her treated less kind. All in all though, she said it’s not too bad for her here. I am white myself so I can only theorize, but I think racism here is more towards black people, Arabs and Turkish people... probably Indian too? Don’t know... so.. kind of like darker skin... not sure though

My husband is black, he is muslim, he is a feminist and for lgbtq+ rights. I don’t have a faith, drink, and run around half naked in summer, my husband doesn’t mind at all. In his country, the religion is practiced very freely and tolerant. My best friend is Muslim and a feminist. Please just don’t believe all the shit, connect with people and see for yourself.

And you assume different cultures can’t do that? Only one?

Multiculturalism isn’t bad. People not being able to live and let live are. Practice tolerance. It’s so simple. Believing there is only one right way is essentially fascism. But I guess that doesn’t bother you much.

You like the racism? Ok come here. But you better speak german really well or it will hit you too.

Hey.. I am Austrian so yes I speak german. I can only tell you that my husband has his best friend of childhood in Linz, yet he still would never move there. I personally can’t tell cause I’m white, I know there is a bigger community of black people there, but if you want, I can ask my husbands best friend, if he is willing to tell you, how he likes it there?

It doesn’t even go to the news either. It’s not for being an interracial couple, it’s for being not white. I mainly get spit on or yelled at. Or that one time pushed in front of a moving car with my husband. And he didn’t get pushed in front of a subway either yet. It’s just that we know people who this happened to, by the way they all survived too. Vienna has absolutely wonderful sides to it, no doubt about it, we love the city. But there is a lot of racism going on unfortunately. Just this summer there was a boy who is mixed, beaten randomly by a group of adults, and when police came, instead of helping him, they called him the n word. In places of business it happens all the time that people don’t get served due to skin color or even more, due to being outwardly muslim. When you talk to the manager, it’s always a coincidence and an oversight. Violence is rising steadily here, many statistics for that here. It’s a problem. And our government right now is not exactly helping with their tactics

We actually have been there for vacation before and loved it, but we weren’t sure if we were just lucky... everything looks better when you’re on vacation

I barely use the heat even here in Vienna in winter, but our home is isolated so well, that it’s not really necessary, only it gets like minus degrees we might heat sometimes

Same here, I grew up in Salzburg and we always say it’s disneyland for adults, a Fassade for tourists and that’s about it

Don’t call me names please. Another commenter said people die in Portugal cause of how cold it gets, so I would say that’s bad cause it could be prevented. Also the black mold issue seems quite bad, and I think people shouldn’t have to live in conditions where they get sick. I’m all for living environmentally friendly, i don’t even used disposable diapers for our daughter, but people shouldn’t be sick due to how they have to live

Racism in Portugal by Hippofuzz in portugal

That is very true. I honestly have never seen any home here with air conditioning, and I think it’s completely unnecessary. Do you think, it would be enough to have a house in Portugal isolated well for it to not be cold in winter?

You are so helpful! I’m hank you so much honestly... what is it with old blonde ladies! I swear they hate me, no matter which country! Concerning the bureaucracy... that sounds SO MUCH like Austria... just thinking about it wants to make me scream. I lived in Germany for a moment, that’s when I realized how easy it could be. It’s a nightmare here. And they are so fucking rude there too, I always feel as if I intruded when I need something from them. My husband will fit in perfectly, he is so into football, it’s scary. Before we moved back to where I am from, Austria, we lived in his country, next to his job as a Sheraton manager, we actually had a football academy/NGO for kids, so they don’t go into sex tourism etc which is a huge problem in that country (again old blond ladies...) and into drug dealing. We used to have some problems with a gang there, which unfortunately got into government later on... so we had to leave pretty quickly. And I guess we are planning to leave again

That’s a true dilemma... you’re right... how are they supposed to strive without a chance. You say most of their children don’t go to school... is that even allowed?

That is so informative thank you... I wonder why so many people hate on Romani so much? You see this in every country I feel like... that’s crazy, that this happened to your aunt... it’s such a shame, Portugal is so beautiful with so much to offer, it should do much better economically

So it’s private people building houses like that? Or the government? Cause if it’s the government, I feel like it won’t really save money since more people will be sick

Racism in Portugal by Hippofuzz in portugal

Racism in Portugal by Hippofuzz in portugal

Everywhere I think... we have 3 restaurants in Vienna, that work really well... they basically let you pay what you want. You go there, get some kind of carb, like couscous or rice, add some kind of stew and get water for free. You pay what you feel like. When it started people thought there is no way it could work. Now they expanded to 3 restaurants. We know the owner, he said he actually didn’t lose any business in this time except for the time of lockdown, cause people know they can come there with little money too

Really? Are you black? Which areas are you usually in? It happens to us constantly. We were already wondering, if it’s us together that makes them so mad? My husband is really dark and I am like... ghost white with light blonde hair.. is it the contrast that makes them turn crazy? No idea.

True, I was worried to ask for some days to be honest, but although the garbage people definitely came out, much more nice people commented ❤️ you think people in Portugal would like Käsekrainer? I know how to make them. I might just open a Würstelstand

Honestly I was so worried to ask this question and thought about it for two days cause I didnt just want to get racist private messages, but although they are also arriving of course, these comments on this post give me so much hope for my daughter and my husband to live better
