林書豪是台灣人,不是中國人,務必跟記者講清楚。Jeremy Lin is Taiwanese, not Chinese, Make sure point this out to reporters

「紐約時報」報導,「哈佛小子」林書豪的伯父指出,林書豪的父母具有美國和台灣雙重國籍,林書豪本人出生在美國,因此擁有美國公民身份,但也有外交部核發的台灣公民身份。

 

報導說,父親林繼明強調,林書豪是台灣人。林繼明知道他的長兄林繼宗要接受紐約時報訪問,要他務必跟記者把這點講清楚。

林繼宗和林書豪的祖母林朱阿麵昨晚在台北接受紐約時報專訪,為了躲避其他媒體,林繼宗和母親先約記者在一家蛋糕店會面,之後才搭車到復興北路一家有播放球賽錄影的餐廳做訪問。

 

在車上,林繼宗主動針對網路上一個熱門議題表達看法:林書豪和家人到底算台灣人(Taiwanese)還是中國人(Chinese)?

 

林繼宗說,他們(林繼明、林書豪父子)肯定都是台灣人。他說:「我跟林書豪的爸爸談過,他是我弟弟。他說:『你一定要(跟記者)講這一點。』」」

 

「紐約時報」報導引述林繼宗的話說,林書豪父母親都生於台灣,林家祖先祖先早在17世紀便從福建移居到台灣,到林繼宗兄弟已經是第八代。 他們林家全家都是台灣人!林書豪表示每年都會回台灣!

 

林書豪的外婆陳意子在中國出生,1949年才遷居到台灣,生下林書豪的母親吳信信並撫養她長大之後移居美國。 雖然林書豪的外婆來自於中國大陸,但根據台灣的文化傳統,林書豪的身份要看父親這邊來決定。

 

他說:「我們是個父系社會,我知道(林書豪)的外婆陳家那邊在中國有親人,但是要看爸爸這邊林家,也就是台灣人。」

 

紐約時報說,林書豪突然成名後,林繼宗和跟他同住的朱阿麵受不了記者追逐,一度從台北附近的住家躲回到彰化北斗的老家。昨天在與紐時記者見面時,還一直注意是否有別的記者跟蹤。

 

朱阿麵已經85歲,為了避免老人家過於緊張,林繼宗是讓她知道比賽結果之後,才帶她看紐約尼克隊對多倫多暴龍隊的比賽。

 

朱阿麵在林書豪幼小時,曾到加州照顧他,幫他換尿片和餵奶,等林書豪長大一點,常吃阿嬤炒的菜脯蛋。她說,她不懂籃球,只知道他把球投到籃裡就是好事。

 

她還爆料說,林繼明這些年常寄林書豪打球的影音來給她,但她直到最近才拿出來看。不過當林書豪問她有沒看的時候,她總是說看了。

An Odd Game a Grandmother Can Appreciate

 

www.nytimes.com/2012/02/16/sports/basketball/jeremy-lins-...

 

Long before Jeremy Lin began winning games in spectacular style for the Knicks, his Taiwanese grandmother, Lin Chu A Muen, came to the United States to look after him as a young child while his parents worked. She diapered and fed him and, as he grew up, cooked big batches of fried rice with dried turnips and egg, a Taiwanese favorite.

 

On Wednesday night, Lin Chu, now 85, went to a sports restaurant to watch a delayed broadcast of her grandson’s latest heroics, a last-second shot against the Toronto Raptors that propelled the Knicks to their sixth straight victory since he emerged out of nowhere and took charge of the team.

 

Lin Chu’s face lighted up every time her grandson came on the screen. But each time he fell or was knocked down or elbowed by the Raptors, who played a pugnacious, battering defense against him, her face froze.

 

“I don’t know too much about basketball, but this is not how it should be done — why do they do it?” she said with dismay. “I know nothing about basketball. I only know when Jeremy puts the ball in the basket he has done a good thing.”

 

The two agreed to an interview Wednesday night in Taipei only after taking elaborate precautions to avoid paparazzi. This subterfuge included meeting at a cake shop in a nearly deserted neighborhood and then driving a circuitous route in the uncle’s car while watching to see if anyone was following. No one was, and they then proceeded to dinner and the ballgame at the Brass Monkey sports restaurant.

  

Lin’s uncle volunteered his views on one of the most contentious questions on the Internet about Jeremy Lin and his family: whether they are Taiwanese or Chinese. “For sure, they are Taiwanese,” Lin Chi Chung said. “I spoke to Jeremy Lin’s father, who is my younger brother, and he said, ‘Make sure you point this out.’ ”

 

Both of Jeremy Lin’s parents were born in Taiwan and retain dual citizenship in Taiwan and the United States, Lin Chi Chung said. Jeremy Lin was born in California and has American citizenship but has been offered dual citizenship in Taiwan as well by the foreign ministry here, his uncle added.

 

Lin Chi Chung said he and Jeremy Lin’s father were eighth-generation descendants of immigrants from Fujian province in southeastern China who moved to Taiwan in 1707. They were part of a large wave of Fujian migration from which most of Taiwan’s current residents are descended, and these descendants tend to identify themselves as Taiwanese.

 

A senior official of Zhejiang province in east-central China suggested over the weekend that Jeremy Lin’s ancestral home was there because his maternal grandmother grew up in the province before moving to southernmost Taiwan in the late 1940s, at the end of China’s civil war.

 

A devout Christian, she was married for a while to a Taiwanese Christian pastor, gave birth to Jeremy Lin’s mother and raised her, and later moved to the United States.

 

While acknowledging that the maternal grandmother is still fond of mainland China, where she sponsors a scholarship at her hometown’s high school, Lin Chi Chung said that mainland Chinese culture and Taiwanese culture both dictate that Jeremy Lin’s identity should be determined by his father’s side of the family.

 

“We are a male-dominated society, so while I know there are relatives on the mother’s side on the mainland, you should go by the father’s side, and that is Taiwanese,” he said.

 

〔記者曾韋禎/台北報導〕去年底因大腸癌開刀住院的前總統李登輝,昨出席群策會所舉辦的「青獅營世代會談」,與年輕學子面對面座談。有學員關心李的身體現況,李登輝答覆,他年輕時常常運動,身體非常健康,鮮少生病;沒想到卻在九十歲發現罹癌,這年紀還開刀是相當辛苦的,術後休養也比較慢。

 

李登輝表示,若在一週前,講話的聲音還沒有現在宏亮,三月大概就能恢復較正常的作息,屆時會搬回大溪居住,希望還可以打打球。李自嘲,他再活五年應該沒問題,以後就無法了解了。

對於林書豪現象,李登輝以同為基督徒,且打過一年籃球、一年棒球、三年劍道的過來人指出,林書豪說以後要去當牧師,就是沒有私心,他在坐冷板凳的兩年間能靜靜研究,看別人如何打球,思考如何幫助隊員得分,這就是認真、理性,也是一個人偉大的地方,年輕人應該向他學習。

 

這股「林來瘋」的熱潮,連台灣前總統李登輝都感受到了,李前總統說林書豪沒有私心,幫助隊友得分,就是一個人偉大的地方,年輕人應該向他學習。此外,李前總統也強調,面對美牛問題時,國家領導人應該學習林書豪的不妥協精神,要有堅定態度和想法,因為老百姓的健康和幸福最重要。

 

〔記者顏宏駿、蔡文正/彰化報導〕林書豪崛起NBA,全球媒體瘋追逐,「林來瘋」旋風銳不可當,林書豪住在北斗鎮老家的堂叔林恆正說,書豪去年返台祭祖,這個「尋根溯源」的動作已經充分說明林書豪道地的台灣血統。

 

林恆正指出,林書豪在美國出生,自然擁有美國籍,但他的根在台灣,去年書豪隨爸媽返回北斗鎮祭祖,就是讓書豪知道,「不管你飛多遠,根始終在這裡。」

 

林氏家族在地方「枝繁葉茂」,隨著林書豪爆紅,也浮上檯面。

 

Jeremy Lin ethnic origin is Taiwanese,

not Chinese

  

【編者按】

按照一般通例,林書豪是台裔美國人,林書豪在美國出生長大的,所以他的國籍是美國籍,他的族裔血統則是台灣裔簡稱台裔,在美國出生的台灣囝仔就是俗稱的台裔美籍或是台裔美國人。

 

然而情感上,林書豪既是美國人也是台灣人。林書豪在美國出生,接受美國教育,當然是美國人。然而林書豪的台裔血統讓他熱愛台灣這個國家,他視自己為台灣人也是理直氣壯,他的父親林繼明特別強調,務必跟記者把這點講清楚,他們林家全家都是台灣人!

 

結論是,法理上是林書豪是台裔美國人。情感上,林書豪既是美國人也是台灣人。 可以肯定的是,林書豪絕對不是中國人!請不要再叫他是華人或是華裔,請網友尊重林書豪的身份認同跟他們林家人的意見!

  

Legally, Jeremy Lin is Taiwanese American. Jeremy Lin was born in USA and has American citizenship. Jeremy Lin his ethnicity is Taiwanese. He is Taiwanese descent with Taiwanese heritage, or culture.

 

Emotionally, Jeremy Lin is both American and Taiwanese. As he was born in USA and brought up in USA, certainly he is American. But his Taiwanese ethnic and culture background made him also a Taiwanese.

 

Is Jeremy Lin Taiwanese or Chinese? To answer this popular question. His father stressed "We are Taiwanese, I am eighth-generation Taiwanese, my son Jeremy Lin is ninth-generation Taiwanese"

 

In conclusion, Jeremy Lin is not Chinese. Jeremy Lin is Taiwanese descent or Taiwanese American. Do not call him Chinese. Please respect Jeremy Lin his identity and his family.
