I’m not saying your experiences here in the relatively short time you have been here are not valid. But I’ve been here close to 20 years and aside from annoyances in banking (which were all resolved with a bit of determination) I’ve never experienced anything I could rightfully call systematic discrimination. I own a home, own a car, own a scooter, have licenses to drive, an excellent job, my kids attend excellent schools, and I live a very comfortable life here. Some would say many of us have it better than locals.
People I work with, associate with and live around all treat me and my family with kindness and respect.
I think labeling it systematic discrimination is stretching it a bit much.
Fight the good fight, try to change things in the system to make life a bit easier, but do it with an understanding that we are guests here. Until we get citizenship, even APRC holders are guests. I think what is being done now to help resolve the ID number issue is the right direction.
