  1. I will say this, the American Chinese communities have been more front and center towards helping out their fellow Americans than the Muslims did after 9-11.

    1. The Asian community. have suffered the bias of ignorance of others in a blame game that is inappropriate. The Spanish flu that took place a century ago was defined that way because Spanish doctors discovered it. Was there a backlash against Spanish people? Why are people from the Orient blamed for this pandemic? The bigotry is outrageous and misplaced. No matter one’s ethnicity, skin color, religious beliefs, or any other barometer, all of us, are susceptible to COVID-19. I am respectful of the Chines American community’s magnanimity. I am saddened they have been maligned for so many decades by bias and bigotry among those who wear their bigotry without even a second thought. As a side note, there are 3 Chinese takeout stores in my neighborhood, within three blocks from where I reside. They have all suffered the need to close because some people believe that Chinese food could give them the virus. Such ignorance. It appalls and offends me. Kindly, Hezi

    2. Your statement is asinine. The Muslim community didn’t cause 9/11. The Asian community didn’t unleash COVID-19 on the world.
