4 questions: 1) Shortly present yourself, tell us your age and for example what is your occupation and where do you see yourself in the future 2) Were you born in the Czech Republic? Are your parents Czech? 3) Do you feel people around you treat you differently than the others, because you have something different? (ex. origin, skin colour, sex...) How does it show? 4) Have you ever thought about what would be the best solution for preventing racist or xenofobic display?
5 minorities: Vietnamese Turkish Bulgarian Ukranian Serbian
Ngoc Anh Nguyen 1) My name is Ngoc Anh Nguyen, I’m 20 years old and I’m in the last year of english high school. I would like to become a well known artist and a succesful woman. 2) I was born in Vietnam and both my parents are Vietnamese. 3) Sometimes when I was younger kids would laughed at me, but recently it’s older people having unpleasant comments. 4) I see that the only solution to my problem is either to move back to Vietnam or maybe to a larger more cosmopolitan city.
Samed Sentürk 1) My name is Samed Sentürk, I’m 20 years. I’m in a fourth year of GJP. I would like to become a businessman. I’m planning on starting my career while finishing my degree at university. Then I would like to move out of the European continent as I feel here is not gonna be enough opportunity for business. 2) I was born in Turkey and both my parents are Turkish. 3) Sometimes people do have prejudices against me and so they act like it, but it usually vanishes after some time when they get to know me better. 4) I never thought about it that much, but I think time and getting to know the people helps to get rid of the prejudice. Also communicating and not being afraid to communicate more seems to help a lot.
Samed Sentürk “It actually happend to me as well, that I judged somebody, because I didn’t know them and after a while, when we started talking I realized I made a mistake by judging them too quickly. The country where I come from has a lot of hatred towards certain ethnic groups and therefore I do too, but because I experienced myself how it feels to be judged, I try to get over it.”
Bulgarian My name is Emylia Simeonová, I’m 31 years old. I’m currently on a maternity leave and before that I worked as a storeman. I’m from Bulgaria just like my parents. I don’t feel that Czechs react negatively, when I don’t ask them for anything. For example when I go to any office and ask for something, it happens a lot that they pretend they don’t understand me or that what I’m asking for is a problem, but when I come with somebody Czech, there are suddently no problems and everything goes well. I think people from the “west” should realize that not everybody who doesn’t speak czech, english or german is automatically russian or ukranian and therefore a criminal.
Ukranian My name is Nadia Sementsiv, I’m 19 years old. I’m a student, but I also try to work when it’s possible. My plans for the future are unclear, but there are definitely some. I was born in Ukraine, just like my parents. Yes, people are usually afraid of me and when I ask them why, they say it’s my ukranian blood. ------------------------------.
Serbian My name is Nenad Vitas, I’m 53 years old and I’m a cartoonist working for several czech newspapers and I’m also a caricaturist on the Charles bridge. No! I was born in Croatia and both my parents are Serbian. Concerning my yugo accent in my speech, people know I’m a stranger. I think there should be stronger sactions for organised groups that are being xenofobic or ultra right radical.
