Global and Mail Is Racist


Xiaoming Guo for Waterloo

The Global and Mail published a commentary by Robert Fife and Steven Chase on January 5, 2018, titled “Liberal MP Geng Tan acted as intermediary for businessman now accused of fraud”.

The first paragraph of the commentary lays out the facts, and that’s professional. But the second paragraph being with a sentence of “Chinese-Canadian businessman Xiao Hua Gong, also known as Edward Gong, was arrested in Toronto last week and the Ontario Securities Commission (OSC) has charged him with fraud over $5,000, possession of property obtained by crime, laundering proceeds of crime and uttering a forged document”. The Global and Mail is racist by specifically spell out Chinese_Canadian. Is Tan wrong because Gong is a Chinese-Canadian? Or is Tan has not fault should Gong is a French-Canadian? Chinese-Canadian in this commentary provides no relevant information besides the racist connotation.

On December 2017, an Alberta man Joshua James Tenhove was charged with a $10-million Ponzi scheme of victims in Canada and the United States. Nobody knows the ethnic profile of Tenhove, and shouldn’t. No media reporting the Tenhove case by saying XXX-Canadian Tenhove because the racial background of Tenhove will not change the verdict of the Ponzi scheme. But why the Global and Mail named Gong Chinese-Canadian? The Global and Mail is racist by doing so.

On January 29, 2017, Alexandre Bissonnette killed six men by shooting at a Quebec City mosque. No report or commentary ever used the label of French-Canadian Alexandre Bissonnette, and shouldn’t. But why the Global and Mail use Chinese-Canadian in the Gong case? The Global and Mail is racist by doing so.

On June 3, 2017, Rehab Dughmosh attacked several people with a golf club at a Canadian Tire store. The incident was classified as a terrorist attack. No media or commentary had named Dughmosh a Muslin woman, and they shouldn’t. We have M-103 to avoid linking any terrorist attack to Islam religion. When MPs arguing to pass M-103, many argued that M-103 is intended to be generally against discrimination towards minorities. The Global and Mail is discriminating against Chinese-Canadian and violating M-103.

The Global and Mail should make a correction in the commentary and should apology to Chinese-Canadian community for the racist commentary.

  3. I have been surfing online more than three hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  4. naturally like your web-site but you have to check the spelling on quite a few of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling issues and I in finding it very bothersome to inform the truth then again I¡¦ll certainly come again again.

  5. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you could do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
