Viet Thanh Nguyen om våldet mot asiater

I Guardian har Viet Thanh Nguyen skrivit en verkligt skarp essä, om det verkliga och fiktiva våldet mot asiater: ”From colonialism to Covid: Viet Thanh Nguyen on the rise of anti-Asian violence”

”The systemic violence of a US foreign policy designed to kill Asians in large numbers, or threaten to kill them, from the Philippines to Japan, from Korea to Vietnam, from Laos to Cambodia, reinforces the domestic, everyday racism and sexism with which many Asian Americans are familiar. The acceptability of microaggressions, racist jokes, casual sexual fetishisation lays the groundwork for an explosion of racist and sexist violence that can be literally murderous.”

Bokförlaget Tranan har gett ut flera böcker av Viet Thanh Nguyen.
