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.

Cops have been put on notice: Let the cameras roll.
Camera-shy cops across the city were reminded they can’t legally take action to stop someone from filming them while they’re on the beat, the Daily News has learned. The refresher was provided in a memo the chief of department’s office distributed to all police commands Wednesday.
“Members of the public are legally allowed to record police interactions,” the memo states. “Intentional interference such as blocking or obstructing cameras or ordering the person to cease constitutes censorship and also violates the First Amendment.”
Cops can take action if videographers and shutterbugs “interfere with police operations,” the memo notes.

Every time the slaying of a Black person by a White person reaches national headlines, I have to repost this graph.
There is always someone who wants to spit that “black on black crime is the real problem” rhetoric (we’ll get into why “black on black crime” is a fake problem in a second). But here’s the thing. When you want to talk about crime and punishment. Black people who are charged of killing other Black people actually face justice. White people who kill black people not only don’t go to prison, the killing is found justifiable at an unbelievably disproportionate rate.
Remember when they said Trayvon looked suspicious in that hoodie? They said Amadou Diallo looked like he had a gun. They said Renisha Mcbride was drunk. Not only are the killings found justifiable in court, the court of public opinion puts these dead black men and women on trial for their own murder.
But about “black on black crime”… Crime is largely about proximity and opportunity. People commit crimes in familiar areas at times that are convenient for them. That is the nature of crime. It’s no secret that people like to live in communities with people who look like them, people who speak their language, people who share their race and ethnicity (example: places like Chinatown, Little Italy, Spanish Harlem, etc.)
Therefore, most crimes against Asians are committed by other Asians. Most crimes against White people are committed by other White people. Most crimes agains Black people are committed by… you guessed it! OTHER BLACK PEOPLE!
"Black on Black crime" is a made up, fictional, false, "problem" used to shift the focus away from White people who get away with killing Black people EVERYDAY.
Stay fully woke.
And here’s a link to the chart above.

I’ve got to bring this post back… AGAIN. PLEASE READ.
