The Hong Kong Against Race Discrimination alliance has highlighted the following as bla tant examples of racist attitudes. A landlord on the Peak refused to rent his apartment to a senior executive of a multinational company after discovering the man was Indian. When an Indian graduate in English and psychology responded to a newspaper advertisement for a part-time English tutor, she was told the employer only wanted someone with 'blonde hair and blue eyes'. A social worker called 40 restaurants looking for cleaning or dish-washing work. Many employers who were initially keen to hire her hung up the phone when they found out she was Nepalese. A Filipina domestic worker was hired by a family on the recommendation of a friend's helper. But she was sacked a day after she started work because of her dark skin colour.
