Racial Discrimination on me, as an Asian Lady

When I was in New York City as an undergraduate student, I liked to go to many museums and galleries in my free time. I had my small backpack with me.

Once, I went to an art museum, and lined up with other visitors. Most of them were white with the age ranged from around 40 to 70, I guess. The security guard did not call any white visitor to check the bag or backpack, but they asked me to see inside my backpack.

I was the only one small female Asian girl in that line. I just wondered why the security guard prejudice me or Asian girl like that. That time I did not say anything, because I was young and did not know much about my right or the fact about discrimination.

Later, I was in an airport in Europe. Again, I was discriminated by the lady at the security check. She asked me to take off my boots and put into the X-Ray scanner. I did it, but I had a question. I asked her why she did not ask any men who wore the same kind of boots to take off their shoes. She could not answer my question, but she tried to say that it was her right to ask anyone there to take off the shoes.

Although she tried to act like having much power to do anything there, I knew that she would learn something that she should treat people equally, whether they are Asian, White, women, men, or other minority.

That time, I learned that it is not only men who discriminate women, but some women also discriminate against women. These women may have more positive attitude toward men than their own gender, or they may be jealous those with the same gender.
