Covid is also surfacing racism in China against people of African decent.

likehelpful

How are the two even comparable? Racism in China - which is a non immigrant, racially monolithic country - stems from ignorance and lack of education/exposure, whereas racism in the US - which is the most racially diverse country in the world and is fundamentally an immigrant country - stems largely from hate.

“In both cases, the vitriol toward Chinese Americans was driven by explicit racism, a fundamental lack of medical knowledge, and pushback toward the influx of Chinese laborers competing with white workers for job opportunities.” Ahh. People were upset about competition for jobs...sounds like the same thing is happening to some industries today. 🧐

Anti-Asian bias may be more subtle and veiled than other racial biases, but it’s definitely there and has been increasingly revealed over the last few months

Did you know bat broth was a delicacy in a country called Palau?

You think it’s bad here? Try going to China and see how they treat other people who don’t like them (spoiler alert: they’re massacred or put in work camps). Try going to Italy. Or France. You’ll see much worse bias there.

Yes. One should be able to take the heat if he/she wants to give it.

Have so much to say. 1. Racism in US? Sure, people talk about it, a lot. However most discussions are around Black vs. White. (Sometimes Latinos.) Asians? Nope, not even part of the discussion.

So I had a some friends who went to Cabo, and when they returned they all(7) took the covid test and came back positive. 5 days later, no one was showing any symptoms so they all went to another clinic and they took the test and they all tested negative.

Now that the CDC says no masks needed indoors if vaccinated, is anybody concerned what that means for kids under 12? I’m assuming that the honor system isn’t entirely going to work (I.e., some unvaccinated people will go maskless). I don’t want my 5 and 7 year olds around unvaccinated unmasked strangers, but it’s also a bummer to stop taking them places. Not that I was taking them that many places, but the occasional grocery store, shoe store, etc. seems riskier now.
