“Trump has not been overtly racist.”

Great, Again?

This re­sponse to our satir­i­cal editorial “Your Legco Bal­lot Pa­per” (Sep 2, Is­sue 1161) about the Legco elec­tions is… well… it’s some­thing.

Of course, the bal­lot was only pok­ing fun at all the par­ties. But say­ing the fic­ti­tious “Make Hong Kong Great Again Party” is syn­ony­mous with “Overt Racist” is ob­vi­ously a stupid ref­er­ence to Trump. Trump has not been overtly racist. His pro­posal to crack down on il­le­gal im­mi­gra­tion is the right thing to do. Even il­le­gal Chi­nese im­mi­grants should not be ex­cused. Yes, many of our own kind, from both HK and the main­land, im­mi­grate to the U.S, over­stay their visas, and even man­age to col­lect gov­ern­ment ben­e­fits. Is this fair?

And Trump was never called a racist un­til he dared to run for Pres­i­dent against the Democrats. He is very well known in the New York/New Jersey area. He may be a ruth­less busi­ness­man and a bit ar­gu­men­ta­tive, but he’s no more racist than any of your white friends.

#FreeHKmeals Love

Last week we in­ter­viewed Sham Shui Po phi­lan­thropist “Ming Gor” (“First Per­son,” Sep 2, Is­sue 1161), en­cour­ag­ing ev­ery­one to take part in our #FreeHKmeals cam­paign—see above, right. Facebook read­ers were keen to get in­volved: What a self­less and good hearted per­son he is! Jose Chan This man has been a god­send to so many... God bless him! Nancy Gar­low En­gel­hart What a good man! So rare th­ese days. Kristin New­ton Hey HK Mag­a­zine - can you help Ming Gor and your read­ers by help­ing to setup an on­line plat­form that we can use to do­nate? I want to spon­sor meals and would gladly do­nate money on­line... I’m sure I’m not alone. Make #FreeHKmeals cam­paign a so­lu­tion ev­ery­one can join and sup­port. HK needs more an­gels on the street like Ming Gor x Emma Ham­monds [Stay tuned! Ming Gor tells us that he’s got an ex­cit­ing new do­na­tion mech­a­nism com­ing soon. We’ll make sure ev­ery­one finds out when it hap­pens.—Eds]
