Canada uses a lot of money from foreigners. They bring wealthy foreigners here under false promises of a great future; and, they also make them invest in Canadian products and services. Reality is that even I was brought here through cunning marketing schemes that sold Canada to my family by telling us that we will have a great life there. But, I have been abused so many times over 20 years. Unbelievable!
Canadian system is a COMPLETE FAIL. A lot of Canadians I have come across fail to document severe abuse that is taking place inside academic organizations and workplaces; instead they only notice the abusers’ titles before they help the abusers throw the victim(s) out of the office—this experience is similar to murdering or raping someone. Some Canadians, especially White people, are extremely abusive; and, they talk like they own the entire planet although they are very ignorant of other cultures. I was stunned when I read that Vancouver’s Real Estate is being run by the Chinese. I was surprised when I heard this because I have been observing how Chinese people are being mistreated inside Canada. One thing that I have seen about some White people is that they raid you with their abusive and pushy behavior; wait for your feelings and emotions to get all tied up; and, then laugh at you further or contort you further when your words or behaviour don’t come out so well. Actually, this is the type of joke that is being played over and over again. A Chinese friend of mine was mistreated by a senior professional who belonged to the Events Industry; thus, I felt forced to note this here; there have also been discussions by reliable individuals about the severe abuse Chinese employees are facing in the Events industry; and, then there is this article titled “‘Widespread’ workplace abuse persists for Chinese restaurant workers”. I am sure that this kind of abuse is common towards coloured people; and, that even some coloured people also abuse other coloured individuals this way because doing so helps them fit into some existing lens! This is because some people are being sanitized to work a certain way. See this movie about how some Canadians obtain sexual consent. You will see what I mean by “being conditioned a certain way”. All this abuse is a group thing! This kind of hoax is pulled at unsuspecting foreigners on routine basis. For example, when I got here from Pakistan, I used to think that every race make up just one unit simply because racism is not taught in Islam—did Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) propagate this message because he knew that racism causes mental illnesses? But, in Canada I was taught the concept of racism and how White people are better than other races. This idea was slowly and painstakingly drilled into my head by Canadians—this is an example of mental and emotional abuse that occurs daily in Canada.
Canada needs to make up her mind! They need to either stop calling foreigners to their country; or they need to learn and respect their culture. I am using “they” to refer to those Canadians who are choosing to abuse and discriminate against colored people—know that Canada is one of the most racist countries in the world where many colored people are just hiding their personal ordeals. For example, Shreya Samanat points out in her article “Top 12 Most Racist Countries in the World” that US is one of the most racist country in the world; Shreya somehow fails to mention Canada, which I believe is due to lack of reported data; but, Scott Gilmore points out in the article “Canada’s race problem? It’s even worse than America’s” that Canada’s racism problem is far worse than America’s.
Thus, I am doing all of this on my own. I know that the Canadian mainstream media is not going to cover these issues simply because Canadian media is made up mostly White people; and, Canada is a very colour-coded and racist country. I have no clue what kind of people are living in this country! I personally don’t have a strong feeling of belonging even if I have some great friends; I am forced to navigate through my career by making a list of people (abusers/bullies) with whom I should never connect. I feel stranded in Canada; and, I cannot sleep so well knowing that I live next to animals. I have learned over time that they only take our money and resources; and, then leave us at some psychiatrist’s office or on the streets.
