Shahida and her father, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi
Shahida, one of the daughters of 14th Emir of Kano, Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, has opened up about her experience of racism in Saudi Arabia.
In a question and answer session with her followers on Monday, the mother of three admitted that Arabs are racist, adding that she has experienced racism in the mosque and the playground in front of their house.
According to her, the gateman attached to their house was racist towards them and wouldn’t answer when they greet him.
“To be honest, they are are. Yes. I have but it mostly had to do with my daughter. )personally dont go out much or interct with them enough to know) But definitely have experienced racism eben in the mosque and the playground in front of our house. Even my daughter’s school she was one of the only black kids so at first I didn’t think it was racism. I realised later on,” she said.
“Oh wait, even our ‘Haris’ like the gate man was racist to us when we first came. He wouldn’t even answer salam. It was insane.” she added.
