- A Filipino family encountered a racist woman during their vacation in Wellington, New Zealand
- The woman told them to leave the coffee shop and to go back to their country
- According to the racist, New Zealand is a country for white people only
A racist woman in Wellington, New Zealand was caught on video hurling racist remarks against a Filipino family.
KAMI learned that the Pinoy family encountered the racist twice.
According to Krizia Alexa Egipto, she and her family went to Wellington, New Zealand for a vacation.
During their stay there, they went to a coffee shop where they had a conversation with another Filipino.
The woman then told them to stop talking and to leave the coffee shop. According to her, New Zealand is a country for Caucasians only.
The Pinoys then encountered her again at another location, still throwing hateful remarks towards them.
“So earlier today we went to Night n Day Manners St. in Wellington because my dad wanted to buy a coffee. While we were waiting for my Dad, my Mum and I bought a lotto ticket and some scratches. There were chairs inside the shop and we sat there. There were a filipino guy who talked to us, so my parents and that filipino guy are basically having a chat. When they were talking a lady who were seating inside the night n day said to them ‘can you guys be quiet’ and we weren’t even talking that loud. So I basically just ignored what she said.
“While we were heading out the shop this lady was giving us a look (a bad look) so I was just looking at her as well. But suddenly while we were just about to go out the shop she said something to us but parents didn’t heard what the lady said. The lady said ‘DON’T COME BACK HERE ANYMORE. YOU’RE NOT WELCOME HERE. THIS IS ONLY FOR WHITE PEOPLE. THIS COUNTRY IS FOR WHITE PEOPLE ONLY’
“After hearing about what that lady said, I told the lady ‘is this yours? Is this your shop?” And she didn’t answer my questions. Then I told her ‘You’re a racist, You’re a f****** racist and a f****** b****’ I got annoyed, angry and hurt so bad after hearing what she’d said. And the staff and I think the manager of the shop approached us and asked us about what happened and I told them what that lady told us. After telling the staff and the manager they ask the lady straight away if she could leave the shop as they don’t tolerate those kind of people in their shop.
“After that we went outside already to walk around the city. Then my Mum saw the lady again and she’s being racist to us again.
“I would never thought that I would experience racism and this kind of situation in my life. But there are still nice people who approached me and gave me a hug because they saw what I did to the lady. I really appreciate those people who approached and gave me a hug earlier. I would not let other people discriminate us, especially when I’m with my family.
“We all have the right to stay in whatever country that we wanted to because we have our own visas and we did a legal process for us to have this. So whatever country you are from, please don’t let other people discriminate you. Stand up for yourselves and don’t be scared. Whatever country that you came from and whatever colour you have, RACISM IS NOT OKAY. This is a lesson for me from today,” Krizia posted.
According to ABS-CBN News, Krizia and her family migrated to New Zealand in 2014.
Her father works as a dairy farmworker in Winton, New Zealand.
The Mayor of Wellington apologized to the Filipino family and stated that racism has no place in their town.
