On Hasan Minhaj, Trauma Passports, and Immigrant Fictions

It would appear that Minhaj has lost his Trauma Passport: that potent combination of trauma stories mixed in with just enough humour to seem edgy but not, you know, depressing. Yasmin Nair writes.

The German government is weighing whether to impose checks on the border with Poland in order to stem an influx of asylum seekers,

Some 204,000 people requested asylum in Germany within the first eight months of 2023, 77 percent more than the same period last year. Friedrich Merz, the leader of Germany’s center-right Christian Democrats, has warned that German municipalities are “hopelessly overwhelmed” by the influx.

Gab es einen Putsch in D? Die Rundfunksender jedenfalls haben nur noch ein Thema: Die #Immigration sei an allem schuld.

Anders als mit einem Putsch kann ich mir nicht erklären, dass die veröffentlichte Meinung dermaßen auf Nazilinie liegt.

Eben im #Presseclub hat z.B. ein weißer Mann insinuiert, an unserer Wohnungsknappheit und Bildungsmisere sei die Immigration schuld. Eine dreiste Lüge, der niemand widersprach.

Kurz zuvor hörte ich im Radio, nichts rege die rechten Stammtische so sehr auf wie abgelehnte Asylbewerber, die sich weiterhin in D aufhalten – und deswegen sei es jetzt das Wichtigste, diese Menschen und ihre Familien schnell abzuschieben. Wir sollen also nicht das Richtige tun, sondern das, was die noAfD und die Springerpresse verlangen. Weil sie es verlangen. Ist das nicht völlig verdreht?

Today in Labor History September 10, 1897: A sheriff and deputies killed 19 striking miners and wounded 40 others in Lattimer mine, near Hazelton, Pennsylvania during a peaceful mining protest. Many of those killed were originally brought in as strikebreakers, but then later organized and joined the strike. The miners were mostly Polish, Lithuanian, Slovak and German. The massacre was a turning point for the UMW. Working and safety conditions were terrible. 32,000 miners had died from 1870-1897, just in the northeastern coalfields of Pennsylvania. Wages had dropped 17% since the mid-1890s.

The strike began in mid-August, when teenage mule drivers walked off the job to protest the consolidation of stables, which had forced them to walk much further just to get to work. After a scuffle between drivers and supervisors, two thousand men walked out, as well. Soon, all the mines in the region had joined the strike. Most of the men who weren’t already members of the UMW quickly joined the union. Up to 10,000 miners were now on strike. The mine owners’ private police, known as the Coal & Iron Police (miners called them Cossacks, for their brutality), was too small to quash the strike, so they called on the sheriff to intervene. He mustered a posse of 100 Irish and English immigrants, who confronted the miners as they marched toward Latimer, on Sep 10. Along the way, they joked about how many miners they were going to kill.

The massacre provoked a near uprising. The sheriff called for the deployment of the National Guard, which sent 2,500 troops to quell the unrest. 10 days later, a group of Slavic women, armed with fire pokers and rolling pins, led 150 men and boys to shut down the McAdoo coal works, but were stopped by the National Guards. The sheriff, and 73 deputized vigilantes, were put on trial. However, despite evidence clearly showing that most of the miners had been shot in the back, and none had been armed, they were all acquitted.
