Yesterday’s live radio interview didn’t go ahead because of some confusion with the show. The interview has been rescheduled for a later date and we’ll keep you posted. Check out the updates for the upcoming show called “Skoolapalooza” above. peace…
Riz is doing a live interview on the radio today at 2:30pm…we’re updating this now, about half an hour before the interview. Sorry about not getting the information to you earlier…but RTHK never called to confirm the interview and he doesn’t even know who to look for or where to go once he gets to RTHK in about 15 minutes.
Hardpack were unbelievable at the show on Saturday night! There was another punk rock band that played also and they were great too…it was a great night.
I read something amazing in the newspaper a couple days ago regarding the attack on USA last week. Like we’ve been mentioning on our website here, a lot of innocent Muslims, Arabs AND EVEN people WHO LOOK Muslim are being targeted around the US by crazy ignorant angry Americans. Like we mentioned in yesterdays news posting, Americans have actually tried, and succeeded in, killing innocent people – some of those killed are actually American citizens themselves!
But what I read in the newspaper the other day was beautiful…it was a beautiful display of one group of people trying to help another group. In USA their is an organization that was created by Chinese Americans whose purpose is to assist, serve and protect Chinese Americans or new Chinese immigrants who come over to USA. As anyone that has been paying attention to the news in the past few years will tell you, Chinese are not new to having to deal with racism either. Sometime last year one Chinese scientist was WRONGFULLY charged for spying on USA. As soon as the US INCORRECTLY charged him for spying, angry Americans went crazy shouting NEGATIVE words and phrases at Chinese Americans all over the country. As it turned out, after a lengthy investigation, this Chinese scientist was innocent – he did NOT spy and was NOT spying and is NOT a spy for the Chinese government. America was shamed again of its racist nature. Anyway, last week, the representative of this Chinese organization came out and said that Chinese Americans in America MUST help Arabs and Muslims in this scary period of the USA. The representative said that they, the Chinese, must stand up and help all those Muslims and Arabs who are receiving daily racist threats and are being shot at in public. The reason he said was because Chinese people understand this kind of threat – he said that if the Chinese don’t offer to help the Muslims now then who will help them when it happens to them? This was the most beautiful thing I read in the last 2 weeks of this devastating period…unity between minorities…we hope they bring other minorities closer together with the majority race and help in bringing a clearer understanding of each other.
