“Trump has not been overtly racist.”
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. John Chiu [For the record, Donald Trump has a well documented history of racism.

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]
