大量的證據證實了早期溫哥華普遍存在種族歧視以及華裔居民因此所受的磨難。然而,這段歷史其實也滿載了人們站起來爭取平等待遇的故事,例如華裔退伍軍人爭取並重獲公民權,華裔足球隊挑戰種族界線在球場上公平競爭,還有 Vivian Jung 和她的同學在 Crystal Pool 抗議種族隔離,這些故事提醒了我們,華人在克服對己身的種族歧視的同時,也幫助了加拿大成為一個更好的社會。

 

加拿大及美國等新興移民國家在 19 世紀時用白人至上主義建立新政權,而唐人街就是這種政治環境下形成的直接產物。為反擊這種全球的合法種族主義,受歧視者進行了有組織且長期的抗爭去挑戰各種形式的歧視,這場抗爭最終在 20 世紀中葉造成同樣具全球性的歷史進程,瓦解了白人至上主義。溫哥華的唐人街因為社區完整以及其持續發展的活文化遺產,是一個講述如此不屈不撓且充滿希望的故事的最佳地點。

There is overwhelming evidence of racial discrimination and the profound sufferings it caused for early Chinese residents in Vancouver. However, this history is also full of stories of people standing up and struggling for equal treatment. Stories like that of Chinese Canadian veterans fighting for re-enfranchisement, that of the Chinese

soccer team pushing racial boundaries to create an equal playing field, and that of Vivian Jung and her classmates challenging racial segregation at Crystal Pool remind us that in overcoming discrimination, Chinese Canadians also helped to make Canada a better place.

 

Chinatowns were the direct product of the rising use of the politics of white supremacy in the 19th century to build new settler nations such as Canada and the United States. This worldwide phenomenon of legalized racism also created an organized response from the victims it targeted, a long-term struggle that transformed into an equally global process that dismantled legalized racism in the mid-20th century. Vancouver’s Chinatown, because of its intact and living cultural heritage, is an outstanding representative site to tell this larger story of struggle, resilience, and hope.
