Xenophobic attacks in South Africa: Chinese Association fight back

Xenophobic attacks in South Africa: Chinese Association fight back

Media reports reveal that a Chinese association has laid charges over recent xenophobic social media comments against Chinese nationals in South Africa.

An x-ray of the charges revealed the statements were not only xenophobic, but reeks of hate and racism.

The association has proactively raised alarm on these cyber xenophobic attacks against the backdrop of multiple violent xenophobic attacks that have taken place in South Africa.

Criminal charges have been laid against some of the writers of these offensive comments.

Some of offensive comments were picked up on social media following the Chinese New Year celebrations on January 28.

Others were on the Carte Blanche Facebook page after it aired a report on the trade of donkey skins on January 29, as well as on pages belonging to the Karoo Donkey Sanctuary and the Chinese New Year.

Here are some of the comments:

“They are the most despicable things on this planet!!! I hate the chings!!!”

“I’m disgusted at your fireworks display…may your new year bring to you all the horror and death…”

“I think we should start killing their children for cure for the common babalaas…”

“There are no more disgusting humans than the Chinese people. I wish they all just die. Every single one. I hate them and will never change my mind.”

“They are the most disgusting things on this earth!!!! I wish they would start wiping themselves out, this earth will be better off without them!”

“Can we not stop these slant eyed freaks from coming into the country!”.

A march against illegal migrants  is slated to hold in Pretoria on February 24.

Many see this march as another Afrophrophobic and xenophobic move.
