Czech MP Taken To Hospital After Two Men Physically Assault Him And Racially Abuse Him


The police are investigating a racial attack against lower house deputy Dominik Feri in Moravia on Sunday.

Witnesses said one of the attackers shouted “niggers had no right to be in politics at all,” Feri was quoted by Czech news outlet Novinky as saying.

The incident happened in the town of Borsice where Feri was attending a cultural event. He was attacked on the streets of the town by two men who knifed and punched him yelling that „niggers had no place in politics“.

Feri was treated at the local hospital and is said to be recovering.

Politicians condemn racist and xenophobic violence

The chair of the TOP 09 club in the lower house, Miroslav Kalousek, said the assault was yet another racially-motivated attack on Czech territory. “Yet another racial attack on our territory. It wasn’t by the Islamists this time either, but by ‘the real decent Czechs’. I hope they will be strictly punished,” Kalousek said.

Dominik Feri, who has Ethiopian roots, is an MP for the center-right TOP 09 party.

Dominik Feri – THE YOUTH VOTER

Dominik Feri marked his 22nd birthday earlier this year by voting against Prime Minister Andrej Babiš in a failed motion of no confidence in the Czech parliament. “Thank you so much for your wishes,” he wrote in a Facebook post bemoaning the government’s survival. “When you complain about socks or underwear, remember this really stupid birthday present.”

Feri isn’t just the youngest parliamentarian in the country’s history. He’s the first black one — and conspicuously so. He wears his hair in a bushy afro and enjoys playing Fats Waller-style jazz piano in local clubs. A member of the city council in his hometown of Teplice since the age of 18, he easily won a seat in parliament last year, despite being placed last on the electoral list of his center-right TOP 09 party. In the Czech Republic, voters can cast preferential ballots for individuals, and the then-21-year-old received more than 15,000 preferential votes in Prague. Only three other candidates in the city tallied more, all of them well-known veteran politicians.

His secret: the youth vote — and a prolific and outspoken presence on social media, especially Instagram, where his choco_afro account has over 100,000 followers, roughly 1 percent of the Czech population. He uses it to forcefully — and often wittily — express his enthusiasm for the EU and his contempt for the illiberal populism of the Czech president and prime minister, the Czech Communists and the virulent xenophobia of the far right.

It’s not easy being young and black in the Czech Republic, where the number of residents of African descent remains minuscule and racial intolerance is widespread. The issue, says Feri — who is partly of Ethiopian ancestry — is “constant mockery and threats by some people. Or, even worse, many people won’t even take you seriously.”

While he says the EU could do more to sell itself in Central Europe, he remains optimistic. For years, Feri visited schools around the country to lecture students on politics and the EU. His parliamentary obligations and his studies — he’s working toward a law degree at Prague’s Charles University — keep him from doing that now, which is why he is so active on social media. “Young Czechs are less interested in politics or traveling around the EU [than their elders],” he says. “But that will change.”

IN HIS OWN WORDS

What is your definition of “European values?”

They have been shaped by Roman law, Christianity and humanism. Thankfully, they have endured all the war atrocities and have been substantially strengthened after World War II. Roman law has influenced our laws and thus affected the way we live — for example, the law of succession. It might not be the most popular way to think about European values, yet the influence of Roman law is what we have in common.”

I Am Not Haile – Haile Gebreselassie

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 28, 2012

My note: Gebre Selassie is a common Christian name across Ethiopia. According to the German phone book registration, there are about 24 Gebre Selassies in Germany.

Like the vast majority of Ethiopian names, the origin of the name, Gebreselassie / Gebre Selassie has an Ethiopian Christian origin.

  • Gebreselassie is a composition of two words; Gebre and Selassie.
  • Gebre means Servant; Criado / Siervo (Spanish)
  • Selassie means Trinity; Trinidad (Spanish)

In the Spanish speaking world “Trinidad Criado” or “Siervo de Díos” are also widely used names.

  • Gebre Egziabher = Servant of God / Siervo de Díos (Spanish)
  • Gebre Mariam = Servant of Mary / Siervo de Maria (Spanish)
  • Haile Selassie = Power of The Trinity / Poder de la Trinidad (Spanish)
  • Haile Mariam = Power of Mary
  • Selassie = Trinity (as in the Holy Trinity)
    Haile = My Power
  • Haile Gebreselassie = My power, Servant of The Trinity

Now, back to Theodor Gebre Selassie:

Gebre Selassie out to establish himself

“I want to assert myself as soon as possible in the Bundesliga, which is one of the best leagues in the world,” said the 25-year-old at his official presentation on Tuesday.

Selassie: “I immediately accepted”

Selassie was a key player in his country’s participation at EURO 2012, nullifying the threat of Cristiano Ronaldo for large periods of their quarter-final tie last Thursday, before the Portuguese struck the winner late on. For Selassie, the chance to play in Germany’s top-flight was too good to resist: “I immediately and happily accepted Bremen’s offer,” said the defender, who will now take a two-week holiday before returning for pre-season training in mid-July.

The son of a Czech teacher and an Ethiopian doctor, Selassie insists his father did not name him after his compatriot and world renowned distance runner Haile Gebrselassie, as was widely reported during the European Championship. “That sounds nice, but it’s not true. Gebre Selassie is the name I was born with.”

Euro 2012: New Racism Row As Czech Republic Star Theodor Gebre Selassie Is Targeted by Russia Fan

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on June 10, 2012

My note: It is a riddle to me why the skin color is still so important to many ‘white’ folks out there. Theodor Gebre Selassie was born to an Ethiopian father and a Czech mother, the Czech federation didn’t have any problem nominating him for the national side from the Czech champions, FC Slovan Liberec. Theodor was one of the few Czech players who sang the Czech National Anthem properly the other night, and he was one of the best Czech players on the opening match against Russia. Russia, of all the nations — as an Orthodox Christian country, and as the birthplace of her greatest poet of Ethiopian descent, Alexander Pushkin –  is supposed to use a culturally sensitive approach in dealing with Ethiopians and people of African origin.

The European Championship was hit by fresh allegations of racism on Saturday, as it was claimed Czech Republic defender Theodor Gebre Selassie was abused by Russian supporters.

Officials from campaign group Football Against Racism in Europe claimed Gebre Selassie was subjected to racist insults as he went to take a corner during his side’s 4-1 defeat by Russia in the Polish city of Wroclaw on Friday.

Our observer reported descriptions of that nature and it was directed at the Czech Republic’s only black player,” Fare executive director Piara Powar said. “We are trying to get evidence, but it’s not always possible to capture it on film.”
