PHILADELPHIA-Christopher Abreu a student at the Ivy League School, University Of Pennsylvania has written an article urging minorities not to attend his school after a racist incident. The Pennsylvania caller reports:
“I’m looking for fried chicken,” he continued. “You look like someone who knows where you can get fried chicken.”
I needed to remove myself from this situation. I said, “Look, try Wawa if you’re hungry. I’m going now.”
He walked back to his friend and yelled, “I’m gonna go get some fried chicken! This nigger just told me where it’s at!”
In retrospect, being called a “nigger” was the short-term sting. It made me more self-conscious about what white people think of me here — just some black guy who got here because of some affirmative action.
