The coronavirus pandemic has heightened racial discriminations and these discriminations are mostly directed toward Africans living outside the continent. One of the dark spots of the pandemic is that it has been a pandemic of racism in which the fundamental rights and freedoms of Africans are trampled upon. Aside from the health challenges and deaths associated with the COVID-19, Africans are the ones suffering the racial abuses, harassment and violent events in public spaces than any other race. This paper highlights and examine the racial discriminations levelled against Africans living in Asia, the main factor that made them vulnerable during the pandemic, the valuable lesions Africans must gather from the pandemic and discusses how the trend can be controlled.
