America In Crisis


In the last six days because of the death of George Floyd, in more than twenty-two states and in forty U.S. cities along with thousands around the world, protests have erupted in a global display of solidarity. Their anger over the killing of an unarmed black man has now spread worldwide. In London, some protestors marched to the U.S. embassy in the Nine Elms area of the city. Crowds gathering varying signs that read, “Black Lives Matter” and “Justice Can’t Wait.”


In New York City, a group of policemen knelt together with the protesters in a group to show their support. New York Mayor Bill Blasio’s daughter, Chiara, was arrested over the weekend by police and charged with illegal gathering. Mayor Blasio said in his tweet that, “structural racism haunts the lives of people of colors.”


We want to urge all the people and community leaders to stand up and tell the protesters that we all have the right to express our anger in the peaceful demonstrations, but not to loot the stores and businesses and destroy public property.


Social injustice and economic problems of this country have long been issues that have created  the gap between the rich and the poor and now it is just getting wider. The local school districts mostly are not doing very well financially. Our nation’s infrastructure greatly needs repairs that are long overdue. All of these problems are worsening by the day. 


Even though we had Obama as president of the United States and the mayors of Chicago, Atlanta, Washington DC and Houston all had African-American leadership, at the same time the real equality and opportunity were still missing. 


With the coronavirus still spreading and now with all the social unrest, this puts our nation in very great danger. We hope that all citizens will recognize that we are all in the same boat and that we cannot afford to lose our nation.


       怒火在燃燒 全國進入緊急狀態

由于喬治 .佛洛伊德被虐待致死案,過去六天以來至少在二十二個州四十個城市發生大規模之暴力遊行事件包括華盛頓特區在內的許多大城市都實施宵禁洛杉矶亞德蘭大等地的許多商家都被人洗劫搶奪遠在歐洲大陸的英國法國及德國 昨天也有大型之遊行聲援佛洛伊德虐死事件。 紐約市長之女兒琪拉也因非法集結被紐約警方逮捕身處白宮的川普家屬也因外圍之騷動而暫避于地下室, 一群紐約警察和市民同跪在廣場上 表達他們對此事件之同情。

值此全國各地不斷之騷亂及新冠病毒之肆虐對我們而言可謂是雪上加霜佛洛伊德事件報露了目前社會上遭遇之嚴重問題自從一九六八年起金恩博士所追求之種族平等運動掀起了非裔及少數族裔之政治意識甚至由奧巴馬當上了美國總統目前在芝加哥亞大蘭大明利阿波裏斯及華盛頓特區之市長清一色是非裔女性他們在政壇上之卓越表現也是來自于政治上之公平競爭非裔人口是佔全國人口之百分之十叁但許多政治上之要角他們有非常出色之表現。

然而在社會各階層長期造成之不公,讓事態擴大到不可收拾,正如紐約市長布拉西奧所言,結構性的種族歧視一直是萦繞在有色人種的社區中這次的動蕩遊行只是表達了過去數十年來社會上之不公平而已。

我們要強烈呼籲全國各地之社區領袖要立即站出來爲這次不幸事件向國民進行遊說, 破壞公共設施和搶奪商家之行爲是犯法行爲我們有絕對之權力表達心中之怒火但是必須在遵守法律之情況下進行。

多年來美國之整個經濟結構在急速變化中在紐約金融中心操盤手及投資者和在勞工階級之低微薪金造成貧富懸殊越來越大在華府執政者多半不識人間煙火多年來, 國家基礎建設也多老舊,教育體系都交由地方政府而缺乏中央統一規劃各中小學之間的水准參差不齊這些種種原因已經是冰凍叁尺非一日之寒。

我們正在面臨內憂外患之國家危機 全國人民都應高度警戒 大家要貢獻自己力量來拯救國家 也是拯救自己之時候了。
