100th Anniversary of the “Hindu” Riots

Posted by Jack Stephens on September 14, 2007

Angry Asian Man blogs:

This week marked the 100-year anniversary of Bellingham, Washington’s “Hindu” riots, when a mob rounded up the city’s East Indian mill workers and ordered them out of town: 1907 Bellingham mob forced East Indian workers from town. On September 4th, 1907, roving gangs of thugs walked from mill to mill, and boarding house to boarding house, hauling out “Hindus” (a common label for all East Indians at the time) roughing them up and ordering to get out of town. This feature is a detailed look back at the area’s largely forgotten racist past, part of a larger campaign to get rid of Asians West Coast during the turn of the century.

“You’ve Had Sex Before?…Well Than You Couldn’t Have Been Raped!”

Posted by Jack Stephens on September 14, 2007

Vanessa, on Feministing, writes:

Rape victims in Scotland are being questioned more than ever about their sexual history despite a previous victim committing suicide after being forced to show her underwear in court.

After the incident five years ago, the law was changed so that lawyers must request an application to “investigate” the person’s sexual history. (How considerate of them!) Unfortunately, that hasn’t changed much; more than three-quarters of rape trials include a request for an application. Scotland is also among the worst of rape convictions in the world with 3.9% of reported rapes ending in conviction in 2005.
