A video aired on Tunisian TV channel ‘al-Howar’ (The dialogue) exposed the compassion Tunisians granted to an African man living in the country that has been subjected to racism and hatred.
In this week’s episode, the TV show ‘Tunisian Tales’ highlighted the controversy of being a target for racism and discrimination as an African living in Tunisia. The social experiment shows an African man requesting assistance to translate a hate message sent to him in Arabic.
Most individuals involved in the experiment refused to translate the text message stating it carries discriminatory language, advising him to report the issue to Police. Some further offered the victim to accompany them to a coffee shop for a drink.
