Katja Mia has opened up about being called racist slurs while on the Luas in Dublin this week.
She shared a picture of her on public transport, explaining that a group of teens were calling her the “N word”.
“LOL remind me to never go on the Red Line again…there are four white teenagers shouting the N word to me on repeat to try to get a reaction from me,” she explained.
“These racist kids really think they run this town now.”
She thanked her followers for their support after sharing her story on social media.
“I appreciate all your messages condemning what happened yesterday, yous are all so kind,” she wrote.
“I didn’t put that video up to get any apologies/sympathy. I’ve never realised I play down a lot of racial incidents but it’s actually NEVER okay.
“Having someone racially abuse you when you’ve done absolutely nothing to provoke them is so intimidating and hurts the soul a little. It’s actually sad that I’ve learned to become ‘used to it’ but Black people learn to grow up with thick skin because we go though life with most of the world against us.
“I would’ve said something but there were five male teens and I was scared but they all little s**ts and I’m going to keep going through life winning cuz that’s what we DO.”
And she’s dead right!
