In Topic: Support the California Bill outlawing sale of shark fins introduced

To me, the ones who are working hard to get the ban passed, are the ones who have a heart!

Unlike you, I wish the legislators in my country have the guts to even propose a fin trade ban!


Can't give me a good reason, right!
To demonize a minority group will not solve the issues, my way or highway approach will create more resistance!
Only work hard in the right way will solve the issues!

Give me the logic why others can eat the shark steak, and Chinese American can not eat the fin!

Typical just shift the blame on some else and have no heart to fix a problem!

To all: First of all, we Chinese American support conservation and condemn cruelty just like you. Our opposition to AB376 has nothing to do with a bowl of shark fin soup or the restaurant businesses. We believe majority of the Chinese Americans may have shark fin soup not more than once or twice a year and don't really care much about it. However, shark fin soup, in most people's eyes, is associated with Chinese. Because of that, Chinese around the world are now being demonized as uncivilized, cruel and anti-conservation. In realty, Chinese is most conservation, we consume all parts of the fish, head to tail, not just the fin. We are being blamed for the depletion of shark population. However, the truth is that shark is depleting, just like any wildlife around the world, due to the demand for shark meat, liver and skin, not just the fin.

Most Chinese American will support 100% ban on all shark harvest, not just ban on the fin!

The organization against AB376 are recently formed, and fund by donation from just average Chinese American.
The main reason for these action is not to be demonized!
