Copy 一个妈妈给ABC的complaint letter

热度 12已有 673 次阅读2013-10-25 03:18 |系统分类:育儿心得| letter

Dear Mr. Lee,

I am writing this letter to voice my complaint against Jimmy Kimmel's "Kid's
round table" show that was aired on Oct 16. During the show a 6 year old 
boy proposed the idea of solving American's debt crisis by "Killing everyone
in China". Instead of  telling the boy that taking anyone's life is 
fundamentally wrong, Mr. Kimmel laughed about it, made the comment that this
was an "interesting idea" and asked the kids in the show "Should we allow 
the Chinese to live?". Mr. Kimmel tried to suggest that "killing everyone" 
is not a very practical solution to that particular problem, not because it 
should not even be an option, but because "if you kill all the people in 
that 
country, nobody can lend you money anymore." Nevertheless, this approach 
remained an "interesting idea", a backup plan, a viable alternative, and a 
potentially effective problem solving strategy.

As the mother of a school-aged child, I find these comments extremely 
disturbing, discriminatory, and violent. The host's complete lack of respect
for life was setting a very toxic example for the next generation of 
Americans. Killing people as a problem solving strategy has been, 
unfortunately, all too familiar to us. With the growing number of campus 
shooting tragedies, young children all over the country have been using this
strategy to get themselves out of unwanted situations. During the past 
couple of days, two wonderful teachers, one in Nevada, the other in Boston, 
were 
murdered by their teenage students. I would say this is no  coincidence 
that these murders occurred right after Jimmy Kimmel's show. 

ABC is a well known broadcasting company and a very popular one among 
American families.  Airing this kind of discriminatory and violence-
promoting skits nationally was a huge mistake, and has already caused damage
to your company's public image.

A sincere apology must be issued. The way Mr. Kimmel reacted to the kid's 
proposal showcased his lack of competence and human decency, thus he is not 
suited for the job of a TV host. His speech is extremely distasteful and 
this is the same rhetoric used in Nazi Germany against Jewish people. Please
immediately take actions by removing the show and issuing a formal apology 
to the American public.

Thank you,
A concerned mother

我同意这位妈妈的看法。当时我也被震惊了!孩子怎么会有这样的想法?!主持人怎么会做出如此回答?!这样的“稚语”一点也不好笑。不知道写这封信的妈妈的身份,但我希望她不是华人妈妈,而是一位来自所谓的主流白人群体的妈妈——不仅仅是华人群体,而且是整个American public意识到这种想法是多么恐怖。

这封信写的不错,很有条理。支持大宝妈,我会试图动员我的美国朋友来发出反对的声音,at least let them know we've got hurt by the show.

分析得很好。

这辈子总要为做点有意义的事情而鼓起一次勇气,我也相信公平正义总有一天要突破种族和地域等等的限制而成为普遍的需求,前提是我们每一个普通人都为之努力,至少我们做父母的可以把这样的思想植在小孩的心中。
