"Is this really your mama" Belgian airport security asked 8yr-old mixed race girl about her black mother (photos)

Assita Konko, a young Belgian-based politician, activist and writer from Burkina Faso shared a photo of her holding daughter writing: "Is this really your mother?" Security man asked my 8-year-old daughter because he doesn't believe me #DuesseldorfAirport"...


Commenting on the post, Nigerian writer, Chika Unigwe who is also married to a white man disclosed that she has had a similar experience. "Lol. I've been asked that at the airport(in Atlanta, I think). It must be something in the airport police handbook" The 35-year-old council member in Elsene who is married to a Belgian man with a daughter is planning to run for election to the Belgian parliament in 2019.

Human trafficking, child molestation all over, and you expect security not to ask you question while you know yourself when ever you go out with your daughter even non security will still ask you " is this really your daughter?" because the chemistry between you two is far near.

ali ahmad said...

Why won't they ask, even I, will ask the same " is this really your daughter? " because the chemistry between you guys is far near.

Y r dark gals so bitter n rude. Seriously pay attention n u'll notice too fair gals r always nicer but dark gals nawa Oo. Maybe they r always sensitive abt their complexion n always hav ds natural dislike 4 fairer gals

Has nothing to being security conscious. Will they ask the same question if the mother was white?

NO COMMENT.

just smile, answer in affirmative and show the documents. This race card can be outgrown with maturity. even police go ask you whether na you get your car for Nigeria. People need to grow up and consume less internet space. it is now causing global warming.

They are doing their job!! I know this should assume the officers are racist, blacks need to stop the NONSENSE. A lot of bi-national couples if they separate mostly one run away with the child, evidence look at the list of missing children!! I have a biracial child as well and that question has never been ask,and if my son will give the a good and reasonable answer. I don't understand why she is making an issue of out it from a mosquito to an elephant. She is looking for publicity!!

You shouldn't reason till midday try to reach evening with your reasoning, not everything is about racism my dear wake up it's in your hands. What is so difficult for an 8 years child to answer that question with a YES or NO?

I changed my name on my passport because of this, I wouldn't have otherwise.. At least if they see my name is the same as my son's they will believe me. (My husband is European) A friend of mine has 2 bi racial daughters and every time she goes through Amsterdam airport they call her husband and ask him for the birth dates of the two kids. She's almost missed her flight twice because of this.. They might be taking precaution but surely they can see that the child is mixed race.. meaning a product of two races... so it shouldn't be in question whether a black mother can have a pointy child. .

I totally agree with you. She is an activist and is doing the only job she is good at which is to start trouble. She should move back to her stupid butkina faso and create problems thete. Is she believes in her freedom fight why didn't she marry a black man.
