Warning Against Racial Nationalism in Hong Kong

Evan Fowler told a story about a conflict happened to his friends in a subway train. He compared the incident with its Sydney version in which a Chinese descend was called a “gook” and found Hong Kong passengers’ indifference to the racist remarks disturbing:

I believe the incident that my friend experienced was not only an unfortunate rarity, but also one that deserves to illicit a level of condemnation Hong Kong people rightly expected and did see in Australia. I also believe that our condemnation should be focused not only on the superficial racism of the remarks, but on the underlying racial-nationalism of the position.
