Stories of #EverydayRacism

你我身邊的種族歧視故事

 
 

It all started when…Racial discrimination exists in Hong Kong more than we might realize. Hong Kong is proud to be an international and multinational city, yet we still see exclusion of many forms in the community everyday. Hong Kong’s racial diversity can be traced back to the history of the Star Ferry, which was started by a Hong Kong Indian, or The University of Hong Kong, which had an Parsi businessman as its first major donor. Ethnic minorities are a part of the fabric of Hong Kong’s unique story. This diversity is precisely what makes our community so vibrant and lively. All Hong Kong residents, no matter their backgrounds, from the friendly neighbor living across the street to the committed colleagues working at the company, devote themselves to build a better city.

What if Hong Kong was truly inclusive, with all identity groups equally represented and valued? Let’s make this a city of opportunity for everyone. Stand together against everyday racism and stop all forms of discrimination for a more inclusive Hong Kong!

香港的種族歧視情況其實比我們想像的更嚴重。香港一方面以國際城市自居,同時社區內卻仍然充滿不同形式的排外情況。

香港的種族多元源遠流長,如果追溯天星小輪或香港大學的歴史,不難發現前者由香港印度人所建而後者則是由巴斯商人捐出第一批款項作建校用途。可見少數族裔一直以來是香港這個傳奇故事中,不可或缺的一部份。種族多元正正是令到香港充滿活力和生命力的重要因素。其實所有香港居民,由同居一地的友善鄰里,到公司裏並肩作戰的同事,無論他們出身為何,都同樣致力建設香港成為一個更美好的城市。

就此,我們更應該為所有人提供一個機會之城,令香港能夠做到真正包容,讓不同族群身份的人,都擁有平等的聲音和價值!讓我們團結一致,反對日常種族主義,停止任何形式的歧視,共建共容香港!
