@beatcoock Taller than you :)
@beatcoock Just look at my bio
Nonsense. If you use Chinese people dying of a virus as an excuse to dust off your racist jokes, that is racism. This is not hard.
@4mazing: Jokes and words can offend, but it isn't racism that seriously affects a person.Look, people, what whites did to blacks in the 50's and 60's is what racism officially is. Blacks were socially oppressed and denied from restaurants, certain neighborhoods, financially bard and denied education (at least the best kind or schools even though some qualified to go there).
The idea that words are harmless is utterly ridiculous. If they were, no politician would ever need to open their mouth. Time and again, propaganda and demagoguery have led to mass murder.
@4mazing: I never said words are harmless, in fact, I believe words have power.
Okay, my bad, apologies.
@4mazing: Its cool.
What I am saying is that there are people who hate, insult people just because they are Chinese and this virus came from China
Some people are doing this
i saw news of a reataurant in Canada that was refusing entry to chinese people... i mean some of them probably hadn't even been to china before much like many indians in the uk having never been to india
Insulting them and excluding them
The right to be racist to protect themselves?
