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.”

when I am hysterical on the inside and cannot come to terms with the reality, I laugh.
I have laughed while feeling heartbroken and angry so often that I often wonder if there is something wrong with me.

"Fuck Hamas. Fuck Israel. Fuck Fatah. Fuck UN. Fuck UNWRA. Fuck USA! We, the youth in Gaza, are so fed up with Israel, Hamas, the occupation, the violations of human rights and the indifference of the international community!"

There is this line that the white old doctor says to Yang from Grey’s Anatomy. He tells Yang that this life will be lonely and long but thats the kind of price she must pay for her brilliance. Until one day when she will come across someone who is as brilliant if not more brilliant than her. And that until that time arrives, she should sit down and pass her time reading a good book.
I think about those lines sometimes. Not because I think I am brilliant and all but because life is long and lonely and maybe and that I should just slow down and read a good book for self entertainment and not hold much expectations.

Self Reflection

I am reading about child labor and domestic workers and I am suddenly reminded of this maid that my grandmother had and how I was a bitch to her as a 9 year old.

The thought makes me sick to this day - that was over 13 years ago but I still cant get over how awful people like me are and their treatment of domestic workers.

art and I have had a long and complex, love and frustration kind of relationship.
I always felt removed from the work I created. There was always a disconnect. Maybe it stemmed from the fact that my work didnt quite look like what I had in mind. sometimes through stroke of luck it looked better than wjat I had in mind. Other times it ended in disasters.
Today is perhaps the first time I look at this work and although I acknowledge it needs work and that its sloppy, I identify with it. Because it wasnt simply a stroke of luck that made it look like that. Every shadow and every line was intentional and I am content with it.
