Call to ban racist game “Dirty Chinese Restaurant”

By |October 2nd, 2017|Press Release & Statement|Comments Off on Call to ban racist game “Dirty Chinese Restaurant”

For Immediate Release

Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter (CCNCTO) and Colour of Poverty-Colour of Change (COP-COC)

Call to ban racist game “Dirty Chinese Restaurant”

 

October 2, 2017 / Toronto – The Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter (CCNCTO), together with Colour of Poverty – Colour of Change (COP-COC), strongly condemns the mobile game “Dirty Chinese Restaurant” for its racist stereotypes. We urge Apple and Google to refuse to carry the game on their mobile platforms, and call on the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services and the Ontario Human Rights Commission to sanction the game developer so that no one profits from perpetuating racism.

Chinese restaurants play an important part of the migration history of Chinese in Canada. First generation immigrants experienced considerable hardship, discrimination and racial prejudice when they ran these businesses to support themselves and their families, and to survive in a new country where there were few other economic opportunities that were open to them. The game mocks these real experiences of exclusion and abuse by portraying them in various spiteful scenarios. It includes plots such as dodging immigration officials, in an utterly disrespectful portrayal of the painful history of the Chinese Exclusion Act and the Head Tax. It is hurtful to many members of the community who still face overt racism and microaggression on an everyday basis because of historic and ongoing systemic exclusion. Chinese in Canada continue to experience many forms of discrimination and racism in employment, education and in many aspects of their daily lives. The game developer claims that ‘being politically correct is boring’, but in fact is using bigotry to make a profit from the very real pain and suffering of Chinese Canadians.

CCNCTO and COP-COC urge the game developer, Big-O-Tree Games to incorporate an anti-racist policy in its business practice, as many private sector coporations have done, to bring positive influence to the public through video games and rather than perpetuating racism that will hurt not only the Chinese Canadian community but also other racialized and immigrant communities.

The Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter (CCNCTO) is an organization of Chinese Canadians in the City of Toronto that promotes equity, social justice, inclusive civic participation, and respect for diversity.

COP-COC is a province-wide initiative made up of individuals, groups and organizations working to build community-based capacity to address the growing racialization of poverty – for both First Peoples and peoples of colour – and the resulting increased levels of social exclusion and marginalization of racialized communities across Ontario.

My China Roots helps overseas Chinese around the world to trace their ancestry, put their roots into context, and visit their ancestral village in China. During this talk, Clotilde will also be available to assist and answer questions of people interested in tracing their Chinese ancestry.

Art & Food Storytelling Festival (2016)

About:

The Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter (CCNCTO) and ALPHA Education partnered together on a new initiative entitled The Chinese Seniors’ Storytelling Workshop. Using storytelling in the form of art and food, senior participants went through a series of workshops to foster individual expression and provide them with the opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences with the broader Chinese community. The project aimed to address the issue of social isolation amongst Chinese seniors and to promote intergenerational exchange with Toronto’s youth through the process of letter writing and art sharing.

To mark the conclusion of the Chinese Seniors’ Storytelling Workshop series, CCNCTO and ALPHA Education held a final celebration, the Art & Food Storytelling Festival.

To learn more about the workshop series, check out the Chinese Seniors’ Storytelling Workshop.

pink-dot-2016-poster

Join us and many others as we march and chant for Love, Freedom, and Support through Chinatown. Love and support can stretch across Generations, and we want to showcase that connection through our event.

Friends, family and allies are welcome!

Date: Saturday, May 21, 2016

Location: Market 707 (707 Dundas Street, Dundas/Bathurst)

Rundown:

  • 12:00PM – 1:00PM | Speakers
  • 1:00PM – 1:45PM | March
  • 2:00PM – 2:45PM | Performers

Wear: Pink

What is PinkDot?

  • PinkDot is a non-profit movement originating in Singapore by a group of individuals who care deeply and support the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love. While we are fortunate to have marriage equality in Toronto, LGBT Asians in Toronto still face challenges from their families, friends, and the greater Asian community. With little conversation about being LGBT and Asian, this under represented group still struggles with coming out to their family and friends. We are gathering in Chinatown to show there is support and love in our community for LGBT Asians who are still trying to find a place where they feel comfortable to be themselves. It is an event for everyone; straight, gay, and allies, who support the belief that everyone deserves the freedom to love.
  • Show your support for LGBTQ+ Asians by wearing pink and marching down Chinatown for International Day Against Homophobia/Transphobia and Asian Heritage Month!

____________________________________________
#PinkDotTO (Toronto Chinatown Pride March) is organized by ACAS (Asian Community AIDS Services) and Chinese Canadian National Council Toronto Chapter. Special thanks to Scadding Court Community Centre and Market 707 – Toronto’s First Shipping Container Market for providing us with the space for the event.
