The Plight of Ethnic Minorities

11 year-old Don with his 7 year-old brother Bai and 10 year-old sister Api are
second generation Pakistani born in Hong Kong. While many of the entnic
minorities are born and educated locally, the existence of a language
barrier, discriminatory practices and social bias mean they are
generally more disadvantaged than their Chinese counterparts.

The government's decision to leave entnic minorities children to struggle
on their own in school without adequate language support is inexcusable.
Despite being fluent in spoken Cantonese, most ethnic minorities in Hong
Kong face hurdles in entering college and the civil service as they are
unable to write in Chinese.
