As I write the thought running through my head is “what do you want to say, what has truly changed, is it relevant and is it at all related to you being black” A lot has changed. It follows the life of a Nigerian couple who own a cleaning business.
I have two children now, own part of a mortgage, got a steady income, still married to a great guy, still love and like him yet I still pine for home. I pine because I am at crossroads in my self journey. I feel that if I had not been in Denmark, my journey would have PERHAPS been easier. I feel Denmark stripped me of my confidence and I haven’t fully gotten her back. As a black woman it leaves a funny taste in my mouth, because when you watch this show, you are not laughing with them, but at them.
Danes are generally mistrustful of all people brown or black. I have been told it is worse in Germany and France.. but at least you have black professionals in those countries.. you should see how surprised people are when they learn of my qualifications and then smile and say..
The news especially print media is filled will endless stories of “foreigners” doing one thing or the other and 99% is negative. “but ah, you don’t speak the language, it will be very hard for you to get work.” They are proving to be right on that front, but I shall not be beaten….
Fipra Denmark is skilled in coordinating with teams of lawyers and communications professionals within Denmark, as well as part of internationally coordinated activities and projects.
I still get random comments from readers and after the last comment I decided to look into the statistics of this post. It all sounded good in my head, when I thought about writing this post. Could be the economy, could be because I am black, could be my luck run out. Socially…that is something else and that is all I am saying. There is a program on TV, a kind of docu/reality series called “Den Sorte Arbejde”, directly translated means “The Black Work”.
I don't want to spend all my time alone with her, because it's unhealthy.
I think I have a nice body and many girls told me that I am very handsome.
To be honest, most of the time I feel ugly, but that's another story. I am new in Denmark and looking for cute Danish girls to get socialized and integrated in Denmark soon.
I love Danish people, their lovely language, their gentle culture and I am really keen on learning Danish language promptly.
