美國新冠疫情日記4/23/2020  主流與非主流


主流與非主流

因為新冠疫情之肆虐,全球各地掀起了激烈的口水戰,許多政客也藉此激發國民之民粹意識,讓世界全人類進入物質及精神文明最大挑戰。

川普總統上任以來,正在美墨邊境築建一座四百五十英裏的高牆,同時宣布美國將全面停止所有移民案件,更甚者是美國密蘇裏州正式向中國大陸提起訴訟,要求武漢肺炎對美國造成之損失。川普更在疫情氾濫之時斷絕對世衛組織之資助,造成更多急待奧援的貧窮國家雪上加霜,這是我們號稱世界第一超強國家應有的態度嗎?

我在接受全國主流媒體休斯敦紀事報四月十七日之專訪中提醒大家,包括華裔在內的亞裔美國人,過去百年來之努力,他們的收入和教育水平早已超過全國國民之水凖,對某些反華言論之政客,她們是太天真無知,對亞裔社區可說一無所知。

過去十二年來,我一直出任休斯敦國際區區長,在每月之執行議員會議上,有非裔黑人、有白人、拉丁裔、亞裔等十叁位,在會上大家都秉持公正、公平之態度為人民服務,我們從不歧視,因為美國是一個移民國家,我們就是美國的主流。

我們呼籲大家緊握住自己手中之選票,為這個偉大的國家選出一位人民真正愛戴的領䄂。



          We Are The American Mainstream


When the Coronavirus pandemic attacked all the nations of the globe, many politicians took this opportunity to promote populism and nationalism in our society.

After President Trump took over the office of the presidency, he insisted that 450 miles of a protective wall be built next to our border with Mexico. He also announced yesterday that the U.S. government would temporarily suspend all immigration applications. Also yesterday, the state of Missouri tried to take legal action directly against China claiming that the Wuhan virus had caused serious damage to their state and the America economy. Trump also cut off all financial aid to the World Health Organization (WHO). This action will affect thousands of people in many poor countries. Is this how we as a super power should treat the rest of the world?

On April 17, in a Houston Chronicle interview, attempts were made to diminish Asian people and their culture while overlooking their successes and integration into the country, such as having higher levels of income and education than the general U.S. population. Overall, these politicians making statements against immigrants is so stupid and naive.

I have been Chairman of the Houston International District for the last twelve years. Our board members include African-American, Asian, Latino and white individuals.       We have never had any issue on race. After all, we are one nation under God.

We strongly urge all citizens in this election year to use your vote wisely and select a leader who really can lead our country.
