Nigerian woman laments about racism in Germany
In Germany, a Nigerian mother, Abiemwense Audrey Osa, has lamented over her son's terrible experience at a racist German school which saw him discriminated against because he is African.
The woman made her concerns known via a post on Instagram, Naij News reported.
In her text, the disturbed mom called for an intervention at the Linden-Grundschule Elementary School, where a teacher named Mrs. Schulz advised pupils in her class to stop interaction with the victim, who is the only African native in the institution.
This was after she showed her class a video of Africans going through sufferings known to their continent.
According to Osa, this treatment has discouraged her child from visiting school.
