It is ironic that the Government should be reviewing anti-racism legislation when it stands accused of the most blatant racism.


Minorities in Hong Kong are not given SAR passports, although they have lived here for more than seven years and some of them were born here.


Having said that, I don't think legislation would solve the issue.


Although education would be a more effective means to start with, the Government has to change the immigration policies that discriminate against non-Chinese.


Also, all SAR delegates of the National People's Congress and the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference, and even the Chief Executive, should refuse to chant any nationalistic slogans that have racist overtones.
