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.
white people disgust me
I hate them truly.
I have no words..
Ok this is fucking horrible but let me say something. You are fighting racism with racism. Clearly, not all white people are scum. Literally every racial group has been discriminated against in history. Even the Irish. When they first started immigrating to America they were discriminated against more than any other group in America. What’s happening in Ireland right now is fucking disgusting, but it is not an excuse to say that all white people are horrible nasty racist shitbags. I think i might throw up reading about this, fuck.
Stop your fucking lies about Irish people in America.
More than anyone in America ? Are you fucking kidding me?
When they first started immigrating, yes. Obviously not anymore but at one time they were the lowest of the low in America. However, that’s not really the point I was trying to make. My point was that fighting racism with racism will get us no where.
They were never the lowest of the low but ok.
never the lowest of the low
But please tell me about how the Irish are oppressed -Donya
frida kahlo was a disabled politically active woman of color who deliberately fucked with gender roles and don’t you ever forget it
I hate how Frida Kahlo has been turned into either a curiosity/novelty in art history (like some batshit woman with a unibrow) or seen as a woman defined by her suffering. She was seen in Mexico while she was alive as a political radical and her work is about more than herself.
