Sad About How Asians Are Being Treated
« on: March 19, 2020, 12:50:00 PM »
My wife and I were at the grocery store at 9pm last night.  The workers were nice and accomodating but the white people were avoiding us.  One lady saw us down the aisle and she did a u-turn quickly in terror.  Of course, she was in her 50's.  One guy in his 30's was shopping and we turned into the aisle and he got nervous and started to distance himself.  We noticed that over half the white people in the store were afraid of Asians and dodging Asians.  I really wish our President would set the tone to how ALL AMERICANS should be treated.  His constant racist remarks make being a POC much harder as if it wasn't hard enough to be a POC.

Don't forget that the white people went into small island of South India and do horrible things to the Sentinelese tribe. White ppl do some perverted things and brought diseases to those indigenous people. Why didn't you tell this bad history to POTUS's guillible xenophobians? Even white ppl like that can't take the account of their own beliefs.  Pretty the same as Tomi Laren. :idiot2:

Tell them this passage: 3 “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own? 4 How can you think of saying to your friend,‘Let me help you get rid of that speck in your eye,’ when you can’t see past the log in your own eye? 5 Hypocrite! First get rid of the log in your own eye; then you will see well enough to deal with the speck in your friend’s eye.

if you voted for Trump then this is your own fault because Trump is currently spreading hate against Asians by calling this a Chinese virus and saying it's okay to do so.

Let me go on the record and say I voted for Hilary so you can stop with your antics.  I'm not your kind of liberal who whines when things don't go your way, and I'm not some idiotic conservative who thinks conserving the racist past of America will make us great again.  As a classical liberal aka moderate, we know it's not left or right, it's forward.

that happen to me too, but i made a u-turn before they did. haha, it's kind of like when you're not sure how someone will respond to your friendly small talk, so you kind of have one foot out already in case they brush you off or walks away before finishing their sentence...the world has definitely changed and forever changed....

As you know, this pandemic started in China...the Chinese were highly criticized for failing to let the world know until it was already too late.  they failed on so many levels...faile d to publicize the seriousness of the issue, failed containment, failed to report accurate numbers and failed to protect it's citizen.  they were ashamed of the situation, condemned by other countries due to their failures and now, they want to shift blame to america..sayin g we've (US) created and planted the virus.  :idiot2:    It is rightful for the president to call it what it is..."a Chinese virus" when you have a country who does not accept responsibility .

as for people giving you the stinky chinky eyes...trump don't need to say it, if they're gonna hate you, they will do  it regardless.  i don't think it's because they hate you but "practicing social distance", instead.

i would prefer people to avoid me than try to get within my circle of comfort zone...we got a greater health risk at hand.

So If I go fishing...all the people will move away from me...awesome open fishing spot. :P

Anyway, it's really more self awareness and awareness of oneself while out in public.  A lot of people are oblivious to their surroundings.  I'll bet that there were always people avoiding other people...it's just that some people are now beginning to see that aspect.

If you grew up in a predominately white rural area...you'd notice this from way back decades ago.  Even other differences like why the white neighbor has lots of toys in their yard, just tossed about, scattered.  That one neighbor who's always got a clean lawn.  That one neighbor who's got the unkepted yard/lawn.  Yet if you're the Asian and if you attracted any attention...ye ah, the complainers are already complaining... They ain't worry about any of the other white trash in the neighborhood. 

You go shopping and go to a check out lane...cashier puts up close sign.  Simple things like this has been happening for decades.  It didn't just happened today.

The real villain is looking at you.  The last hero was just not true.  If everything works out in the end.  It's because all things make amends.

You are certainly uneducated and ignorant because you don't understand anything about communication theory and race theory.  Calling it the Chinese virus is not the same as calling food from China Chinese Food.  A pejorative word carries a lot of hate and racism.  Trump saying Chinese Flu encourages and justifies hateful acts against the Asian community.  Trump should stop it immediately.  He should know better, but all he is doing is rallying his racist white people to vote for him.  He's playing the game.  He's the type of jock that will win by any means necessary as long as it is not illegal.

Sure we need to practice social distancing but let not let our prejudice, discrimination, and hate be express overtly like it is now.  There are Asian people being mobbed just for their skin color.    I'm sure you don't recall the racist hate KILL A HMONG SAVE A DEER.  That took YEARS for the community to get rid of the overt racism.   There are still COVERT racism about KILL A HMONG SAVE A DEER.  We need solidarity on this issue and not some bullshit about justification blah blah blah...don't be stupid.  Have ally behaviors for your own or someday you'll wake up with a family member hurt because of your lack of ally behavior to deter hate acts.

It took me a while to understand race theory because I wasn't taught it sufficiently in school.  There are a lot of racism that is institutionali zed and covert.

As you know, this pandemic started in China...the Chinese were highly criticized for failing to let the world know until it was already too late.  they failed on so many levels...faile d to publicize the seriousness of the issue, failed containment, failed to report accurate numbers and failed to protect it's citizen.  they were ashamed of the situation, condemned by other countries due to their failures and now, they want to shift blame to america..sayin g we've (US) created and planted the virus.  :idiot2:    It is rightful for the president to call it what it is..."a Chinese virus" when you have a country who does not accept responsibility .

So, Trump and his administration s should also be held accountable for their response too then, right?

His narrative, mirrored by his administration and Fox, was initially "fake news", "democratic evil plan to impeach me" and etc...Not exactly apples to apples, but if we're to blame China AND give it a misnomer, then we should have the right to admonish Trump and his administration in kind?

Either way, China HAD the responsibility to respond initially and did not do so. They're responsible for the epidemic in China and the pandemic worldwide as it started to spread globally. Trump, is responsible for MOST if not ALL the failures domestically. Say for the damn idiots who keep partying.

People blaming China don't seem to understand that we knew about this as early as January but Trump didn't allow people to take the test because he wanted to keep the numbers low. Even just three weeks ago, if you tried to get tested your chances of getting tested were pretty much zero unless you were dying or on a Cruz ship on your way to America and they wanted to test you just so they can say you weren't on American soil when you were determined to be positive.

meant it in general, not directed at just you. I would hope that no Hmong person voted for Trump but some are so stupid they can't see how racist he is and his racism is putting lives of minorities in danger.

Trump can't understand anything but the business and the stock market.  The dude looks like a deer in headlights when it comes to health crises.  He should have activated the CDC to take lead or at least the Secretary of Health.  Then he should had instructed the FDA, NIH, DARPA, and CDC to work with private industries to quickly develop a therapy and vaccine.  instead, all the private industries are doing the same research over and over trying to win in the market by being 1st to market.  Everyone is squandering valuable research hours and time with high redundancy.  They need government intervention.  Then you got companies like Roche who decided not to make enough test because it's not profitable enough but they want to "DO GOOD".  The defense act took too long.  The Stafford act took too long.  3 MONTHS too long.  Why did this happen?  Trump didn't want to market to panic.  Well, it DID!  Currently there are 3 BIG ISSUES:
1) Coronavirus shutting down the consumption industry.
2) Financial industry in a tissy hence FED went to ZIRP again like 2008 (we are not hearing this yet)
3) The commodity market is in a tissy too (US 3rd major producer of oil and all of this was finance off loans - SEE #2).  US is caught in a OPEC vs. RUSSIA and the price war is going to kill the US OIL industry and those on Wallstreet who loaned massively to build up the infrastructure are going to go bankrupt.

Didn't the US gov't and your state gov't issue the social distancing (at least 6 ft) during this crisis? I wish I had the same issue, it'll make my shopping better, no one to bother me while I go about my businesses.

What right do you have to call anyone that don't vote like you stupid? Don't just eat what the media is feeding you. We all know they pick and choose and tell half truth to push their agenda. We saw it with the "hands up don't shoot" in Ferguson, their race mongering agenda in the high school teen against native american narrative, etc. etc. And we all know they report every little thing to get the masses to hate on Trump. You have to be either too naive or blind to not noticed it. I didn't vote in 2016 but if had I would have voted for Trump instead of the queen of lies, Hillary.

if you voted for Trump then this is your own fault because Trump is currently spreading hate against Asians by calling this a Chinese virus and saying it's okay to do so.

So, YAX, where were you when these media says all these thing before Trump did?

CNN:
“Vaccine for new Chinese coronavirus in the works”
“China confirms Wuhan virus can be spread by humans”

The Washington Post:
“First U.S. case of potentially deadly Chinese coronavirus confirmed in Washington state”
“Chinese coronavirus infections, death toll soar as fifth case is confirmed in U.S.”

The Los Angeles Times:
“Chinese coronavirus outbreak has reached U.S. shores, CDC says”

BuzzFeed:
The First Case Of The Chinese Coronavirus Has Hit The US, CDC Reports

Reuters:
“Japan confirms case of new Chinese virus, spread is ‘concerning’”
“With Wuhan virus genetic code in hand, scientists begin work on a vaccine”

CNBC:
“The CDC and Homeland Security begin screening for Chinese Coronavirus at three major US airports as outbreak spreads in Asia”

BBC:
“China coronavirus ‘spreads before symptoms show”

Foreign Policy:
“The Wuhan Virus: How to Stay Safe”

USA Today:
“Something Far Deadlier Than The Wuhan Virus Lurks Near You”

Bloomberg:
“10-Year-Old Boy Raises Fears Wuhan Virus Could Spread Undetected”

NPR:
“Your Questions About Wuhan Coronavirus, Answered”

Business Insider:
“Here are the symptoms of the deadly Wuhan coronavirus and when you should be worried”


So, when does it become racist remarks? Is it as soon someone other than a lib/dem supporter says it? These same media are the ones complaining now how Trump's rhetorics are racist.
