The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland
At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.
The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”
the crumbling myth of white supremacy. white supremacy is violent. white supremacy is destructive. white supremacy is pervasive. white supremacy kills.
i’m showing my mom Code Geass and we just finished season one two days ago and yesterday she needed time to digest everything and today at dinner she asked me if the ending scene at the island would reveal lots of things to be a dream to which I said no
and then she looked very sad and said “darn. I was hoping Euphy didn’t really die.”
turns out Euphy was my mom’s favorite female, if not favorite character
MY MOTHER KNOWS THE PAIN OF HAVING A FAVORITE CHARACTER DIE
also she kind of likes Suzaku so I was happy and she thinks Lelouch is basically batshit insane with anger issues and she really doesn’t like Cornelia
okay but is anybody else disappointed that we didn’t get to actually see what Seri had to say about Munakata in the latest Days of Blue chapter or is that just me
