After I arrived to New York from Tokyo, I was looking for an apartment around Long Island, because I was registered in Nassau College, therefore I bought a newspaper to call for those apartments which were available to rent. They asked the same questions like "What is your name, where are you from" ,  where are you work, etc" After I answered all the question like "My name is Carlos, I'm from Peru and I don't work I've just came here to study..." However, after I  made ten phone calls and none of them were available, but all of them has something in common, they said: "The person who is charge of renting is not available, leave your phone call, and he/she will call you back..." I waited a couple of days, and none of them called me back. Then I decided to call to the same ten phone numbers that I did two days ago, but this time my answers were a little different, I said My name is Toshi, I came from Japan and I don't work because I'm student. Some times I didn't have to answer the third question when they offer me to come and see the apartment. When do you have time to see the apartment?. Notice they offered me to see the apartment in my own time, it means I could decide in what time I was able to go there. I couldn't believe how this country which was founded by immigrant decedents were so racist, especially New York, where represent the melting pot of the diversity of ethnicity. Of course, I didn't rent any of those apartments. I don't want to make any type of business with people who is prejudiced
