How prevalent have you experienced racism caused by coronavirus?

This coronavirus hysteria had 2 social impacts - uncovering latent racism found in western society and uniting all Asians together. Even living in a big city with diverse people, I feel like racism against Asians is far too common. Stand tall and stand up for yourselves. Also, treat your fellow Asian brothers and sisters like family instead of the mindset of "i'm not like the other Asians"

There’s nothing latent about it. It’s just that many of you believed you were treated on par until reality struck.

I haven’t really experienced much, thankfully. Closest I got was being told by HR to WFH for 2 weeks after returning from Japan whereas Indian dude who went to Japan around the same time wasn’t required to. When I returned to the office it was more “oh shit you were quarantined? lol plaguuu” rather than “oh shit you were quarantined? You’re sure you’re safe to be around now, right?”

Oh damn. I was also told to quarantine for 2 weeks after coming back from Tokyo (got back last week).

Other guy on my team who went to Thailand was working out of our home office his first week and will he back on site for his second.

Was walking down the street in Virginia with 2 Asian friends and someone in a car yelled “corona virus” at us and drove quickly away. Made me angry, but nothing I could do :/

One off case where Indian dudes are not victims of racism probably. Due to one rape case, any harrassment case in offices have Indian dudes being viewed as suspects. All have our own stories of stereotypes.

Is this an (Asian) immigrant thing, covid, the you-live-to-work-culture .. or just me? I feel so ungrateful but also so terribly unhappy...

My husbands ex and their daughter (9yo) are not vaccinated. His ex is anti-vaxx. We get his daughter with us every other week and she’s out and about and in school and play dates. I know I can’t control that, but any suggestions on how to handle? I don’t want my hubs to not see his daughter. Thoughts?

Has anyone heard the news about Grindr selling user data again? There’s not many things in the world, except for maybe smoking, that I find so obviously toxic in every way possible. Nothing good has ever come out of that app for my friends - not mentally, not physically, and definitely not emotionally. Had it in my early 20s for 2 years and haven’t had it since, and thank GOD for it. Am I crazy or do you agree? Any moderate views around this?
