I mean ... race is more or less (at least according to most liberal philosophy) just a social construct. Right?

Asian describes a geographic distinction, as does Native American/Pacific Islander.

Latino is no longer considered a race.

And White/Black has to do with melanin.

The # came from Wuhan. Calling it Wu-flu is damned descriptive ... isn't it?

The world is nutz.

Funny how liberals who claim race is all social constructs are the ones who want the most to have us put ourselves into those boxes.

I think they are more or less right, most of it is a social construct. Let's get rid of those boxes.

Yep. Even as you and I put certain folks who say those things in the liberal "box." LOL

It's very difficult to get away from.

I guess this would be my perspective. Yes, it's a social construct as each of us are. We are (unless we're feral) socially constructed beings. It starts even before birth.

If [insert term here] is a social construct ... then let's move beyond it. Let's stop giving it authority over us in either a positive or negative way.

TL; DR: Yep, Occams, you're right on this one.

They self identify, they put themselves there. I will never see it but I yearn for the day people say 'I am just an American'.

I have a baby girl due in November. She definitely won't look like me. Me and my wife joke people will think she is the hired nanny and if I am with her they might think I'm a kidnapper.

I hope I am able to raise her to realize those boxes are a joke. Is she white, or is she Asian, she has an equal claim to both, although identity politics pushers would say she is Asian not white most likely.

While I agree with the right to free speech, 400 attacks on Asian Americans do deserve some sort of response from somebody in charge. You can be pissed off at the Chinese-Americans as much as you want until you start threatening their civil liberties.

Your right to be a racist ends with your words, not your actions.

Forgive me if I gave the impression that I was a racist bigot.

I’m only about defending the 1st Amendment.

I agree 100% after all when is socialism not socialism? - When a republican socialist says so apparently... NO COLLUSION!

Then you hear them screaming BAN Huawei - BAN the Socialist left, BAN those damn free hippy radicals and there socialist computer system, well they kind of did BAN OpenBSD out of DARPA because - "FUD" the lead maintainer could be a socialist spy..

Whoop's hold on sport, did nobody explain that the words DSA as in "digital signing algorithm" also meant "Democratic Socialist of America" - So when your talking about BANNING Huawei you mean BAN the social computer system's & users and keep the one that spy's on you and your citizens for better advertising?

Love how Mr President supported socialism when it was about keeping his "Money" out of the hands of Tax Auditors but when he's 48 Billion in the hole and the Russians and Chinese suddenly decide they don't want to help him any more, now he has a problem with socialism oh well that totally makes sense after all you are dealing with an idiot!

The government sit's there going we are allowed to spy on your communications, but then suddenly they scream "wait a minute what do you mean your all socialist's!!" and "you abhor spying in all it's forms on the working class people" God damn it come back here with that strong crypto algorithm you bloody Jewish socialist hippy!

Ban the Bomb brah! -- Ban the Bomb not the Socialist!

I want to make sure I know what the word racist means ...



a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.


*checks more facts*

COVID "originated" in Wuhan ...

Coronaviruses are similar in some ways to influenza ...

Wuflu therefore seems like a succinct, information packed way of reference.

Kung Flu brings a small bit of humor to the association.

No where do I see "I hate all Chinese because this happened in China" which would actually be somewhat racist.

Words matter.

Okay, against my better judgement I clicked on the links.

How does either relate to bringing a small bit of humor to the COVID situation?

Asian Americans are not the targets. Only members of the CCP BECAUSE of their communist party membership not because of their ethnicity.

I don't see a problem with violence against communist party members, just my opinion

It doesn't need a response it need applauded

Any attempt to physically stop me from voicing my opinion and using my free speech will be met with in kind.

Eazy peazy lemon squeezy.
