Life / Should I expect racism as a 'black' woman in Poland [149]


I am from Africa, and I went to Poland for two months in 2016 for scientific reasons. I was working with wonderful people and everything was fine, until once at midnight in Warsaw, I was at the bus station waiting for the bus to the airport, a young man came to me and said "I hate migrant", I replied "I am not a migrant" he replied "you are and I hate you". It was midnight and I was so scared, I decided to change the bus station and on my way, another young man saw me and suddenly he was coming close to me by speaking loud in Polish in a very bad way, I realized that he was insulting me so I run away up to the next bus station and he backed off. It was a terrible experience for me. I went to Poland for a second time, nothing happened but I was very scared everyday.

Despite that experience, I really enjoyed my stay in Poland (Warsaw, Cracow, Poznan and Bedlewo) and during my stay it was difficult to see black people so I can understand why some people are not glad to see black people.
