Racist graffiti at Burnaby's Metrotown -- Kill All Chinese

Racist graffiti dismays community | Vancouver 24 hrs

Quote:
The woman who posted the photo to the site iask.ca took it inside a washroom stall in the ladies room at Metropolis at Metrotown.

“Kill all Chinese” was scrawled onto the side of the stall in what appears to be pen and captured by Monday by someone who only wants to be known as Ms. Lu due to safety concerns.

“I just wanted to ignore it,” Lu said. “The next day I decided to report it to police.”

...
In some ways, I am not at all surprised by this kind of stupidity. Extremism, racism, and stupidity can never be completely eradicated in society. At the same time, I am really quite surprised to see this kind of bullshxt in a city as racially and culturally diverse as Metro Vancouver.

If you see something like this, what are you going to do other than notify the police?

^^ Dude, this isn't high school we're talking about (even though it may well be a dumba$$ hs kid scribbling it). Plain and simple, this is hate crime that is punishable under the Canadian Criminal Code.

I agree that there is probably very little that can be done in terms of catching the perpetrator. As a rule, it is still important to emphasize that this kind of thinking has no place in society, especially one such as ours here in Vancouver.

What does it matter if it's highschool or not? Kids go everywhere.... Stupid shit like this will always exist no matter what. There's little that can be done to stop it and the best step one can take is to simply ignore it. I'm pretty sure the people doing it know it's unacceptable they could just care less.

I'm just surprised some dumbass kid's graffiti made the news.. That's probably what they wanted .. attention.. and they got it lol

I didn't plan on failing you, but now I realize you're actually getting your panties in a bunch about this. It's some random graffiti in a bathroom stall. Are you going to 911 every poorly scrawled racial insult that you see? Fuck Van 24 hrs for even reporting on this bullshit.

I don't think I've ever taken ANY graffiti I've seen in a bathroom stall seriously. If that's the case, I'd better start calling all those numbers promising me a good time, flush twice because it's a long way to the kitchen, keep an eye out for all those hidden cameras watching me take a deuce, and just overall ponder the meaning of life while reading some random poems scratched into the wall.

Because, you know, everything people truly feel is always carved permanently into the bathroom wall...

Yes, it is some random graffiti scribbled in a bathroom stall -- that much I will agree. But for the rest of your remarks, I think it would be best if we simply agree to disagree.

The only thing worse than 24 hrs reporting this as news is Traum posting this on RS.

There's racist graffiti all over the place, there used to be tons in the Superstore bathroom on Grandview and Rupert. How I see it, racism will never die... so just try to live with it.

In response to freakshows comment, meh it was probably some white chick that couldn't get the itch out of her vagina

This is a waste of the police's time, and I value our police's time very little in this city of ours...

Since pbrdukes likes this I will go ahead and say it again. I get called car-bomb to my fucking face, they don't even write it in the bathroom stall where I might not see it, and I don't get all bent out of shape over it... people say stuff, and do stuff. It may not be funny, it may not be politically correct, but there is nothing you can do to change what people are thinking in their sick little twisted heads, and that is exactly what people scrawl on bathroom stalls.

I read the headline as 'racist graffiti dismays communists'


I guess they should write a story about 'Jenny' in the gossip column because not only does she give great head she seems to get around! There was even a song about her back in the day

So many people here are so pessimistic about how something like this will ever change. Its easy to see the problem but its hard to see the solution due to complexity and you stop before you even begin. This is why we will never change.
