Bisabuelo

Three kids, seven grandkids, two great grandkids. Eight girls and four boys in all that. I am not rightwing, religious, or a sports fan. I love anything Spanish, Foreign Languages, Sherlock, Mind Olympics and the odd pretty girl. I believe in equal rights for all so if you dont like it, with respect, piss off. Bisabuelo is Great grandfather in Spanish.

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.

Did you even read the article.

In 2011, the Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) recorded adramatic spike in racist violence against the Roma community. The home of a Polish family was pipe bombed, there were attacks against Lithuanians, Hungarians and Slovakians, and posters demanding “local houses for local people” appeared around the Belvoir Park area of Belfast. As another demonstration of the replacement of sectarian hatred by hatred of ethnic minorities, these attacks and displays of intolerance occurred equally in Catholic and Protestant areas.

The last time that the issue of racism in Northern Ireland became a matter of national concern in Britain was in 2009, when more than 100 Romanians fled their homes in Belfast following a campaign of intimidation against them. At that time, racially motivated crime had reached the level of 1,000 incidents per year; in 1996, the number of attacks stood at just 41.”

They’re not white tho, yea?
