The above sketch was broadcast on the night of October 16th, 2013, on the ABC Network and was hosted by Jimmy Kimmel.  When asked how America should pay back the money the US owes to China, one white 6 year old child at the table suggested in an unscripted comment that America should ‘kill everyone in China.’ Kimmel chuckled and said, ‘OK, that’s an interesting idea,’ and soon jokingly asked a follow-up: “Should we allow the Chinese to live?” The kids gave mixed responses, all agreeing that the Chinese people should be killed as an act of pre-emptive ‘self-defence.’  The four children, two White, one Black, and one Asian all laughed riotously in agreement, and logically developed the argument for the mass murder of an ethnic group.  As soon as the programme aired, American-born Chinese people immediately begun protests against this racist attack upon the Mainland of China.  The ‘normalised’ anti-Chinese racism found amongst American White, Black and Asian groups is historical and goes back hundreds of years with one of its most obvious expressions being the 1882 Chinese Exclusion Act, followed by numerous acts of discrimination, prejudice, violence, rape and murder. Typical of this casual White racism can be seen in Sharon Stone’s uniformed comments that the 2008 earthquake in China was due to ‘bad karma’ (following the instruction of the duplicitous Dalai Lama).  It is particularly telling that ABC was forced to apologise for this latest outrage that saw children from other ethnic groups participating in the support of the very White racism that is aimed at their communities, and their presence in the USA.  Significantly, other Civil Rights groups representing African-Americans, Native Americans, and other organisations, remained silent on this issue and did not offer help, support or assistance.  This demonstrates how White anti-Chinese racism has penetrated these groups. Of course the US mainstream media treated the protesting Chinese people as if they were the problem – often referring to them in news reports as the ‘enemy within’.  Despite the system-wide support for anti-Chinese racism in the US, the Chinese-American population was galvanised into action which saw protests occurring across 27 US cities. Hundreds of Chinese people (including many families) came together holding signs calling for the correct education of children to ‘love’ rather than ‘hate’, and for the United States to stop its racist attitudes toward the overseas Chinese people, and the people of Mainland China.  Many protesters made the point that when Americans make these kinds of racist comments, it is immediately known throughout the world and only serves to encourage race-hate.  Although it was obvious that African-Americans did not support the Chinese people in their fight against White racism, many Chinese protesters heldup placards reminding the world about Dr Martin Luther King and his ‘I have a dream’speech which was delivered 50 years ago (in 1963). White America was reminded that Chinese people have contributed enormously to the building of the country over the last 200 years – since its founding – and their reward has been a consistent and unchallenged racism.  The mainstream media attempted to justify this racism as ‘humour’, but various Chinese protesters said that racism is not ‘funny’ in any language, but highly destructive and threatening to a peaceful society.  The general consensus amongst the Chinese protesters was that it was wrong to teach young children race-hate, and that it should never happen. The only politician in America to support the Chinese protests was Illinois Congressman Rodney Davis, who issued a statement condemning the incident.  In the meantime, Time Magazine reported that a petition with over a 100,000 signatures was to be sent to the White House calling for an official investigation into ABC.  In the future it is hoped that legislation will be passed to protect all ethnic groups from this type of discrimination.

美国27城华人抗议辱华节目 美主流媒体普遍失声

【环球时报驻美国特派记者廖政军】美国广播公司日前一档脱口秀节目中播出的“杀光中国人”言论持续引发广大旅美华侨华人的极大愤慨。11月9日,由全美多个华人团体发起的大规模游行抗议活动在华盛顿、纽约、芝加哥、洛杉矶等27个城市同时展开,敦促美国电视台做出正式道歉并制裁涉事主持人吉米·基梅尔。预计有上万人参加的此次游行是近年来规模最大的一次华人抗议活动。然而对这一事件,美国主流媒体普遍选择失声。

在ABC10月16日深夜播出的一档知名节目中,主持人基梅尔邀请4名不同肤色的孩子参加“儿童圆桌会议”讨论。当基梅尔问起美国该如何偿还所欠中国巨额债务时,一名6岁男孩语出惊人,“绕到地球另一边,杀光所有中国人”,而基梅尔当时只是调侃道,“这是一个有趣的想法。”节目一经播出,立即激起在美华人的愤慨,认为该言论已远远超出“童言无忌”和“美式幽默”的范畴,是一起严重的辱华事件。各大侨团纷纷通过各种方式,向未经删改就播出这一节目的美国广播公司及未能及时纠正上述儿童言论的基梅尔进行严正抗议,并要求其公开道歉。

迫于舆论压力,美国广播公司承诺采取整改措施以消除有关言论的影响,基梅尔本人也在直播节目上进行简单的道歉,称无意伤害任何人,然而其“道歉不认错”的态度再次引发华人愤怒。

当地时间9日上午,在华盛顿国家广场上,约800名来自大华盛顿地区的华侨华人汇集在一起,他们手中举着“美国广播公司必须道歉”“美国广播公司深深伤害中国人”等标语牌,口中高喊着“应教育孩子们爱而不是杀戮”等口号。《环球时报》记者在活动现场看到,很多人是带着孩子前来参加游行的,人们纷纷表达心中不满。有人说,美国立国200多年来,几代华裔美国人为这个国家的繁荣贡献了自己的智慧、汗水,甚至鲜血,却不时受到歧视和迫害。当听到“杀光所有中国人”的刺耳声音时,所有华侨华人不禁感到震惊、羞辱和愤怒。也有人说,ABC通过节目传播种族歧视和种族仇恨的信号,而就在不久前,还有上万美国民众参加了美国反对种族歧视的民权运动领袖马丁·路德·金发表《我有一个梦想》演说50周年纪念活动,并为多年来美国社会为消除种族歧视而做出的努力感到欣慰。参加游行的华人家长普遍认为,看似童言无忌的一句话折射出弥漫在美国学校和家长中的种族歧视观念对孩子们内心所产生的巨大影响。

华盛顿抗议活动的组织者之一、美国华人专业团体联合会理事长肖水根对《环球时报》记者表示,此次事件美国广播公司和主持人基梅尔负有不可推卸的责任,但他们傲慢的态度令人愤怒。通过大规模抗议活动,他希望能够促使ABC高层以新闻发布会的形式作出正式道歉,并保证类似事件不再发生,同时要求给予基梅尔停职、解雇等严厉制裁,使辱华者付出应有的代价。

历史上,美国在歧视华人方面可谓劣迹斑斑,以1882年出台的排华法案最为臭名昭著。这些年来,美国各种辱华事件或言论也并不少见,美国有线电视新闻网主持人卡夫蒂在报道2008年北京奥运会火炬传递过程中和好莱坞明星莎朗斯通就汶川地震所发表的辱华言论,曾掀起抗议浪潮。甚至有舆论认为,当美国经济不景气的时候,仇外和反移民情绪总会抬头,一些政客就喜欢拿华人和中国产品说事。

尽管美国主流媒体大多选择失声,但还是有一些美国官员和民众仗义执言。美国伊利诺伊州国会众议员戴维斯发表声明,声援华人抗议活动,称辱华言论绝不能够被容忍,美国广播公司总裁必须作出诚心道歉。在华盛顿国会图书馆工作的阿历克斯对《环球时报》记者说,应当有更多美国主流媒体对事件进行报道,向公众展示事件全景,为感情上受伤害的中国人提供表达不满的平台。美国《时代》周刊称,已有超过10万人在美国白宫网站上进行签名请愿,要求调查美国广播公司和基梅尔在此次事件中的责任,而白宫方面将在近期内给出正式答复。

谈及华侨华人的最终诉求时,肖水根对《环球时报》记者说,“我们希望有更多美国民众看到问题的存在,希望美国国会努力制定出更加强有力的新法规,杜绝各类种族歧视,维护来之不易的多元文化环境。”
