戴口罩本为利人利己,竟遭社会恶意相待?为华人维权,我们义不容辞


随着新型冠状病毒在全球的不断蔓延,人们的防护意识逐渐加强,出门佩戴口罩成了近段时间的一种习惯。而近日,在纽约唐人街Grand Street地铁站,一名华人女子因戴着口罩而遭到路过的非裔男子的袭击。

据目击者描述,该华人女子原本在站台里等车回布鲁克林,而这名非裔男子看到其戴着口罩,就开始用粗鲁的言语侮辱该名女子,并不断对其进行挑衅恐吓。一开始,华人女子并没有搭理这名男子,但其在离开站台车站前直接击打了女子的头部,华人女子才开始追出站台反击。

从现场目击者提供的视频中,我们可以看到一名华人女子从站台上来拦住了一名男子,但是被男子用雨具暴打,场面一度混乱。

但是,这并不是第一次发生华人戴口罩遭到歧视,更有华人被人推下地铁站的可怕事件发生。

除此之外,部分普通的民众在看到亚洲面孔的时候,也是唯恐避之不及,仿佛他们的对面就坐着一个病毒。而类似事件,除了在纽约之外,在其他有华人生活的城市也频繁上演着

疫情发生后,戴口罩成了海外亚裔群体的常见健康防护措施之一。目前,纽约市警部门已就该事件展开调查,并杜绝因新型肺炎而引发针对亚裔群体的个别歧视现象继续发生。在事件发生之后,纽约市议长Corey Johnson等均表示,将继续关注相关事件,并呼吁切勿因他人戴口罩而对其表示歧视,甚至发动攻击。“2019-nCov新型冠状病毒肺炎是一种疾病,人人都可能得新型肺炎。在2014年埃博拉病毒来袭时,纽约市也没有对任何来自西非国家和地区的人士持歧视态度,到如今的新型肺炎,也应如此。任何人、尤其是亚裔群体不应遭受歧视。”
