Comment: After reading of the hate crime against Kokoomus speaker of the house, Ben Zyskowicz, it was now Chike Ohanwe’s turn. According to tabloid Iltalehti, a man tried to drag Ohanwe into the water at the Finnish science center Heureka.
Ohanwe starred in Neil Hardwick’s movie Jos rakastat.
The young actor was quoted as saying on his Facebook page that “these clowns do not represent Finland but themselves.”
With government talks going nowhere and the possibility of the Perussuomalaiset (PS) forming part of the next government, one only wonders how many more closet racists in Finland will be emboldened to attack innocent people.
The PS would have done a service to themselves and Finland if they would have come out last week with a credible public statement against racism. The problem of hate crimes and the rise of racism in Finland has become so alarming that President Tarja Halonen has expressed concern about this social ill, according to Iisalmi Sanomat.
What to do? Keep on writing and possibly organizing a huge march in Finland if the situation continues to escalates further.
