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.”

So we all heard about what's happening with Legend of Korra, right?

Legend of Korra has a main protagonist that is a women and a women of color at that, and lets face it there aren’t many of those. Recently though, lok has been going to only digital, meaning episodes will only be viewed online; personally the joy that comes from watching the episodes online is…

Spread the word! We want to save this great show from being taken off television air and get it the respect it deserves!
If it does not air at this time where you are, be sure to use the hastag at this time anyway! We want it to be trending around the world!

I made a powerpoint of why I’m mad about the Korra pull. I understand it’s not cancelled (thank god), but I’m still upset.

please nickelodeon

Half the time, I don’t watch it because it’s never on when I’m available. Maybe if it gets enough online views, they’ll keep it as a netflix show.
