Racist graffiti upsets staff at Chinese restaurant
Slurs evidence of racism against various ethnic groups in province, says worker
Nina Fu says she was “shocked” when she saw the green and black words scrawled crudely across the walls of the Chinese restaurant where she works.
One tag said “Chink.” Beside it was “Ling-Ling.” The words “Ching Chong” appeared on another wall.
“We were kind of shocked when we looked at the words,” said Fu, who works at Taste of Excellence on the corner of Broadway Avenue and First Street East.
“We don’t do anything wrong. We just do our job ... I don’t know why they write those things down on the wall. It’s not good.”
Fu said the graffiti, which appeared on the restaurant over the weekend, is evidence of the racism that exists in Saskatchewan against multiple ethnic groups.
Restaurant staff have not filed a police report.
Fu said they don’t know how police would be able to figure out who the culprits are.
She said many people who have visited the restaurant this week have commented on the graffiti and offered condolences. Some have even offered to help clean it off the wall.
Fu said that restaurant staff plan to scrub the slurs away later this week.
