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.
"but what about the irish? the irish are the blacks of europe!!"
White American Brutally Assaults Korean Man in a Hate Crime
Watch!: And when you started out, there were almost no Asian-Americans on TV. Now you’re Watson. The TV my Asian-American daughter grows up watching will be very different than what I grew up watching.
Lucy: It is significant, and I think we still have a long way to go. It is good that you’ll have to explain to her that when Daddy was a teenager, there wasn’t anybody like her on television. People say I’m a pioneer, but I don’t recognize it because I’m still living it. Maybe on my last breath if they name a street after me in the city, I’ll say, “Wow, I made a difference.” Right now, it doesn’t feel like it. [x]
Lucy Liu in the October 2013 edition of Watch! Magazine
That moment when Lucy Liu shut down Hollywood patting itself on the back for racial progress before they even started reaching their hand back.
As much as I enjoy the movie Frozen, stop saying it’s the only movie that teaches girls they don’t need a man to save them. RAPUNZEL FUCKING SAVES FLYNN AND BEATS THE SHIT OUT OF PEOPLE WITH A FRYING PAN. MERIDA WAS ALL “FUCK YOU I’M 15 AND I DON’T WANT TO GET MARRIED. “ MULAN SAVED THE FUCK OUT OF CHINA, SHE SAVED A FUCKING COUNTRY. So, would you politely shut the fuck up and stop.
Also like people keep thinking Frozen teaches girls that they don’t need a man to save them because she didn’t need Kristoff in the end, but she totally needed him for everything leading up to the end. I mean Anna’s utterly useless outside of her super safe castle, and she’s reckless and doesn’t plan or analyze her situations before acting on them. Like she needed Kristoff to show her the way; since she didn’t look around the corner to see a literal staircase leading up to Elsa’s castle she would have needed him to help her climb up that rock wall (and he was condescending about it the entire time); once she got stabbed in the heart with the icicle Kristoff took her to the trolls who told her how she could be saved (and their priorities were really sketchy because poor Kristoff, #foreveralone), and then he got her back to that castle or whatever in a decent amount of time and yea while none of that technically saved her life in the end, she really depended on him through the entirety of the movie. Rapunzel I’m not even sure is a good counter example because yea she saves Flynn every now and then, but oh, Flynn frees her from her burdensome hair
and also she really needed him to take her to her castle or whatever and idk like I’m tired of people saying these princesses are strong female characters with their own agency because they’re physically strong (Rapunzel) or because they “don’t need” men (Frozen…?)
For both Merida and Mulan, the men were kinda there but they weren’t completely necessary? Honestly I don’t really remember any of the man-characters in Brave except her father, and he didn’t really do anything memorable to me. For Mulan she was surrounded by men, but she didn’t rely on them for anything in particular bc relying on them would probably mean giving up her secret. The one time she relied on the men was for a medical emergency and yup, everyone found out she was a woman then and they left her to die in the cold. Then she comes back and saves all of China because she’s a badass.
A response to one of the most obnoxious posts I’ve read on Tumblr.
The fact that someone felt the need to make this ppt tells me that we do need more POC representation in media. OP is citing ~historical accuracy~ for frozen being the way it is - specifically that bit about “whiteass European countries” - when SURPRISE non-white Europeans have co-existed with these so-called whiteass Europeans IN HISTORY.
The fact that they gave the late 1800’s as her example and proceeded to go “well not a lot of POCs travelled to Europe at this time makes me cringe. “But you guys don’t get it Africa and Asia were really far!” - ah yes, like distance stopped Europeans from rudely invading and establishing colonies in these areas in the 1800’s or even in the centuries before that.
Now I’m not trying to convince people to hate Frozen. It was a decent Disney movie and Let It Go is a pretty catchy song. But to invalidate POC who do dislike this movie by saying WELL IT’S DISNEY IT’S GOT SUCH A GOOD MESSAGE AND I LIKE IT SO STOP WHINING is a pretty shitty thing to do. Media representation has been and currently is still a big issue. Frozen may not be outright racist in itself (yes, the message of sisterly love is great we all got that), but the fact of the matter is that it’s contributing to the normalization of white as the standard which is kind of shitty for people who aren’t white.
So no, people aren’t ~hating just because it’s white~. People are upset because in the context of mainstream media, it’s another movie that helps perpetuate marginalization in film.
Maybe actually take a couple of history courses before you attempt to educate people on racism - or in this case “not racism”.
