Abstract

Since 2010, Chinese residents and Chinese French citizens have denounced unequal treatment in French society, especially focusing on the lack of preventative measures taken against racially targeted violent robberies. In 2016, a major demonstration brought together around 30,000 people, marking a turning point in the activists’ cause. The second generation took a clearly more active role in this protest and (re)framed the demonstrators’ claims to emphasize the structural racism that lies behind the violence aimed at their communities. Since then, the descendants of Asian migrants have developed initiatives to fight against stereotypes and related acts of violence. Based on qualitative research into different forms of collective action, this article highlights how some have engaged in online campaigns to highlight the stereotypes and everyday racism associated with Asian populations, and others have engaged with the legal process to see that petty crimes are recognized as acts of racism.

摘要

法国华人从二零一零年起开始批评针对华人的抢劫事件,二零一六年,在二代华裔青年组织下,超过三万名华裔移民上街游行,并将焦点由治安问题转向其背後的深层原因:亚洲人口遭受的种族歧视。透过质性研究,本文分析亚裔青年如何透过网路集结动员,揭发抗议针对亚裔的刻板印象与歧视,进而让法国社会认可针对抢劫与种族歧视的关联。
