美国伊利诺州巴士广告涉嫌歧视中国留学生

 

美国芝加哥一家巴士公司向伊利诺大学的师生发出12月套票优惠时,写上“像你一样的乘客,你乘搭巴士不会感觉身在中国”,触发亚裔学生及校方抗议。

亚裔学生团体批评,巴士公司做法是“不把亚裔学生当成人”,歧视亚裔学生。校方亦指责有关内容是“种族歧视”。

巴士公司首度致歉时,辩称是要凸显自己与其他接送中国留学生的竞争者不同,不同意校方接收大量海外学生的营运方式,认为大学应该是为当地人民服务。

结果这则道歉令事件变得更糟,市议会和州检察部门介入,巴士公司要二度道歉。

感觉身在中国

伊利诺大学的师生在日前收到一封电邮广告,内容是推销巴士公司Suburban Express为学生提供接载往返芝加哥市中心、机场、及附近多间院校的接载服务。

广告中提及了众多不同的优惠,例如退票服务、不收行李费等等,但其中一项与这些优惠并列的,是“像你一样的乘客,你乘搭巴士不会感觉身在中国”。

亚裔学生不满巴士公司把“不用感觉身在中国”,和不收行李费、退票服务当成同等优惠。

据伊利诺大学数字显示,全校44000名学生中,有5900人是中国留学生。

Suburban Express指,广告内容是要标榜自己与其他公司不一样,并非主力做中国留学生生意,强调并非泛指“非白人”。

Suburban Express称自己并不同意伊利诺大学的营运方式,指学校在过去几十年,接受大量支付高昂学费的海外学生,大量非英语学生加重了当地学生的负担。

“我们相信伊利诺大学的宗旨应该是向伊利诺的民众提供高质量、可负担的教育,”声明写道,“对于把我们的大学售卖予最高价者,我们对这个想法很不自在。”

Suburban Express的另一份声明称,由于多年前发生了外判员工向非英语顾客作出不当评论,引发许多亚洲学生早已放弃使用其巴士服务。

“种族歧视”

Suburban Express的“道歉声明”惹来更多批评。

伊利诺大学的学生组织亚太裔美国人联盟发声明,谴责巴士公司的广告及其“道歉声明”,称其想法是“种族歧视”,“不把亚裔当成人”,呼吁抵制这家公司。

校方亦发声明,谴责这则带有“种族主义”和“冒犯性”的广告,认为是“冲击校园的价值”。

校方强调与巴士公司没有商业关系,其巴士不能在校园内接载乘客,校方无法阻止私营公司在社区营运,但建议乘客选择交通工具时,好好研究一下它的纪录。

州检察长丽莎‧马迪根(Lisa Madigan),正调查这间巴士公司,是否涉及侵犯民事权利,关注巴士公司有没有歧视一些潜在乘客,检察部门已发出传票,要求巴士公司在30日内回复。

检察部门声明指,法例规定任何交通工具都不得以种族为由拒载。

市议员亦正寻求召开听证会。

事件最终迫使Suburban Express再度发声明就广告及“首则道歉”致歉,承认有关广告“不可原谅”,“具伤害性”,公司对自身作为感到羞耻,愿意承担全部责任,会配合当局调查,强调从来没有因学生的性向、国籍、种族、宗教等理由而拒载。
