Cultures Are Equal

Various YouTube sites show digital phone uploads of Muammar Gaddafi's
last harrowing moments on earth: Surrounded by a howling mob, he is
briefly sodomized by a baton or bayonet. Tracey Shelton of
Globalpostfiled lurid film from cellphones that appear to confirm
that a rebel fighter sodomized Gaddafi)

The same week, in China, nearly two dozen shoppers ignore a
2-year-old child left bleeding to death in the street as two cars run
over her. While the awesome power of technology illustrates why
immigration is all one-way traffic to European destinations, it does
not exactly ease the concerns of receiving nations. In fact, shell
shocked countries attempting to absorb record numbers of immigrants
have been browbeaten into setting aside healthy concerns around
self-preservation -- replacing these with an exhaustive menu of
newcomer complaints. In the case of the Chinese toddler, consider the
focus in Canada's newspaper of record: The story "has stirred up a
hive of mixed emotions for Canada's Chinese community. As
English-language media detailed the video capturing the moments when
two-year-old Wang Yue (or Yue Yue) of Foshan was run over by two
separate cars and ignored by the 18 people who left her lying in the
road, the Chinese-Canadian community struggled to reconcile their
anxiety over moral norms in their homeland with disgust at the way the
incident was depicted in the international press. Shock and dismay
over the plight of the girl [who has since died] was tinged with
chagrin that long-standing biases against Chinese culture have
re-emerged in the Western media. Ray Chan, Toronto editor at
Chinese-language newspaper Sing Tao Daily, said the story warrants
only moderate coverage. The fact that the incident took place five
days ago in an area well outside of its usual Canadian focus, coupled
with tepid community interest, ensured the paper never treated it as a
top story, he said. ['Shock and dismay over the plight of the girl'
and at the same time only 'tepid community interest'? Make up your
mind! Well, evidently Sing Tao's Big Boy] approach contrasted sharply
with western news outlets, many of which gave the story top billing
and prominently displayed photographs extracted from the surveillance
video capturing the hit-and-run. Victor Wong, executive director of
the Chinese Canadian National Council, said the English media
treatment plays to a long-standing tradition of portraying China as a
backwards and irresponsible nation. ...'It's almost like the old Cold
War stories about China. They're not civilized, they're not ready for
Prime Time,' Mr. Wong said. 'There's that kind of holdover from the
Red China days, and we still see this in our North American news
outlets today.'" (Globe and Mail, October 19, 2011)

Got that? The problem is not callous indifference to a dying child, it
is the Western media's callous indifference to Chinese sensibilities.
Just to confirm stereotype-ridden tendencies, the Western media was
back at it a week later: A truck "driver ran over a five-year-old boy
– and then reversed over him to make sure he was dead in an apparent
attempt to avoid footing hospital bills for the child. The sickening
incident happened in Luzhou, western China, when driver Ao Yong hit
Xiong Maoke as he left home to walk to school. Witness Zhang Shifen
said: 'I saw the truck move back a little and then move forward again.
Xiong became wrapped up in the wheel and the truck continued forward
another ten yards.' The tragedy comes just a week after two-year-old
Yue Yue was knocked down by two vehicles on a busy market street. ...
In this latest incident passers-by said the lorry driver jumped from
his cab after hitting the boy. They claimed Yong then asked: 'How much
shall I pay?' Police said Yong, a 35-year-old lorry driver from
Luxian, argued with the boy’s family about the size of the damages
for seven hours. ... Handing over compensation if an accident victim
dies is seen by many Chinese as cheaper than paying for lengthy
hospital treatment." (Daily Mail, October 25, 2011)

Gaddafi's mortifications have not been widely reported -- now that's
responsible journalism!
