【非馬雙語詩】A Bilingual Poem of William Marr 狗一般 LIKE A DOG

 

有罪!

白人手裡的球棒大叫

黃色有罪!

就這樣

一個黃人被狗一般活活打死

無罪!

白人手裡的法槌大叫

白色無罪!

就這樣

一個白人被狗一般活活開釋

附注﹕1982年6月汽車城底特律的華裔工程師陳果仁,因細故被白種工人誤認為搶飯碗的日本人,活活用球棒打死。事後白人法官祗判罰款的微刑了事。

GUILTY!

The bat in a white man’s hand shouted

YELLOW IS GUILTY!

So

a yellow man was killed

like a dog.

NOT GUILTY!

The gavel in a white man’s hand shouted

WHITE IS NOT GUILTY!

So

a white man was released

like a dog.

*In June 1982, in the enclave of Highland Park, Detroit, Vincent Chin , a Chinese American, was beaten to death with a baseball bat by an unemployed white worker who mistook him as a job-grabbing Japanese.   The case generated public outrage over the lenient sentence of the murderer, and it became a rallying point for the Asian American community.
