美國舊金山通過決議 就排華行為向華裔移民正式道歉
央視新聞報導

2022-02-03 06:58

當地時間2月2日,美國舊金山市宣佈通過一項決議,正式為其過去對華人社區的暴行道歉。

舊金山監事會(San Francisco Board of Supervisors)的這一決議承認該市曾經的歧視性政策對華人社區產生了重大影響。該決議代表監事會和市政府就針對華人社區的“系統性和結構性歧視”,以及針對性的暴力行為道歉,決議還承認監事會曾通過許多迫害華裔移民的法律。

在舊金山的約90萬居民中,超過三分之一是亞太裔,其中華裔佔最大比例。舊金山警察局在今年早些時候報告稱,亞太裔報告的仇恨犯罪事件在2021年激增了567%。

在舊金山市採取行動之前,去年5月,加州的安條克市(Antioch)首先為過去的歧視性政策向華人社區道歉。聖何塞市和洛杉磯市也緊隨其後,分別於去年的9月和10月為歷史上針對華裔的歧視行為進行了正式道歉。(央視記者 許弢)

灣區華人作家李嘉音,於10/24週日下午在南灣Cupertino舉辦簽書會。 李嘉音稍早在無意間得知了,聖荷西華埠早年興衰,與華人遭到歧視的歷史,於是在疫情期間創作了這本,以1887年聖荷西華埠被縱火焚毀為背景的英文小Fire Scar,意思就是「火焰留下的疤痕」。小說推出之後,她也透過Santa Clara 縣議員李洲曉Otto Lee辦公室,設法向主流社會傳達信息,從而促成了9/29,聖荷西市長親自主持的,向華人道歉儀式。在當天的簽書會中,Cupertino市長蒲仲辰表示,李嘉音的作品,讓像他這樣在美國土生土長的華人,能夠與先人建立連結,該市首位華裔市長黃少雄,也回顧了華人在灣區奮鬥的歷史與貢獻,李洲曉則是委派代表,向李嘉音致贈表揚狀,肯定她的作品對於揭露1887年聖荷西華埠歷史的貢獻。而李嘉音也宣布了,後續將要推動的兩項計畫

https://laist.com/news/1871-massacre-apology-memorial-chinese-la-attack-mob

187111月。 LA華人有兩大勢力團體。有一派想借助警察力量打擊另一派。本來是個小摩擦,結果引發槍戰,殺死了一個美國白人。 因此引發500對人的白人乘機洩憤,掃蕩華人街。 警察故意不給力不制止,連殺了19名華人,其中有兒童,有備受人們尊敬的華人醫生。非常殘酷。事件是Mob riot. 也抓了多名領頭作惡的人。但是華人不能作證人,最後不了了之,沒有人為此受到懲罰。 這是排華史上殺人最多的三大事件之一。


Fire ScarThe Untold Story of the 1887 Burning of San Jose’s Chinatown

(火疤:1887 年聖荷西「唐人街被燒毀」不為人知的故事)

by  Lily Lee 



A successful young woman, a motherless ten-year-old girl, a shared trauma separated by over a century. Jessica and Jasmine are united by a nearly identical scar. As Jessica searches for clues about the past, including untold truths about her own family history, she uncovers unspeakable acts of violence that shaped the lives of early Chinese American immigrants, culminating in a brutal act of arson that threatened to destroy their dream of inclusion. With passion, heart, and unflinching candor, Lily K. Lee explores the actual circumstances of the 1887 fire that decimated San Jose’s Chinatown against the backdrop of decades of tragedy, loss, and courageous resilience.

思理 Sarolina(得獎旅美作家及詩人)

讀完嘉音的Fire Scar分享讀後

 

剛剛讀完火疤,讚佩妳的毅力,要克服洞悉事件之後的憤恨難平、無法去除的悲傷。也要敬佩妳以英文寫這本小說的能力,行文流暢;故事的架構,環環相扣,高潮迭起,緊緊抓住讀者的心。人物的塑造,心境的發展,都是上乘之作。如同主角逃離Tacoma大火時,"smoke followed them a long way",這煙一直跟在身為亞裔的我們的後面,大火的煙,槍彈的硝煙,種族歧視的煙。很高興也很榮幸能在群組與妳相識,見證了妳多樣的才華。

 

整本小說已經像劇本,就等導演一聲Camera了!

 

說聲恭喜

 

忘了提,書名取得非常好。這火的疤痕殘酷地烙印在書中人物的脖子上,其實,種族歧視的疤痕也深深地烙印在我們的身心,時時提醒,時時警惕。

 

Amazon的讀後感出來了。我的評分是依照我在Goodreads的標準,讀過的書中,只有Gone with the Wind5顆星。前不久讀了Klara and the Sun,評分是4顆星,作者是生長在英國的日本人,諾貝爾文學獎得主。再次恭喜。」

 


 






4-star review  - “Fire Scar”


https://www.amazon.com/review/R2UJX3XXEWLCCJ/ref=pe_1098610_137716200_cm_rv_eml_rv0_rv


A skillfully presented story based on the most shocking history of the Chinese immigrants.


A big applaud to the author, Lily K Lee, who brought the untold story of the burning of San Jose's Chinatown to life with the most skillful storytelling.


The smoke that followed the main character Tuck a long way from the Tacoma fire to San Jose seemed to have followed every Chinese immigrant and the Asians since then, the smoke of racial hatred, smoke of violence.


Lee is successful in keeping the readers spellbound with her storytelling skills, the plots gearing toward the climax, and each character's inner development in the time of suppression and hatred.  A true page-turner indeed.
