The Invasion of the “Yeux Bridés”

Posted by Jack Stephens on March 23, 2007

On the blog Gay Persons of Color the blogger comments on the “yeux bridés” (slanted eyes) incident:

If we are to accept and appreciate Canada and the United States as ethnically and racially plural, then we really have to remind politicians and the popular media that if we are not white, this doesn’t mean we are from somewhere else. Yes, the term “yeux bridés” has offended many, and even more have been offended by the lack of an apology or correction, but identifying someone as foreign based solely on physical features is a more insidious kind of offense of which far more individuals than just André Boisclair are guilty.
