Lana Condor, 22, who is of Vietnamese descent, shared a heartfelt PSA about why it's NOT okay to refer to the new coronavirus as the "Chinese Virus". Please. Be better. To my followers-be safe. "You call yourself a leader?" she asked.
"You have no idea the ramifications your racist words & actions have on the Asian American community". You simply can not even fathom the danger you are putting our community in.
Stock market: "Wall Street took yet another hammering on Wednesday, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average closing with a loss of just over 1,300 points, or 6 percent, as investors continue to flee financial markets". They LEAD by setting good examples and ACTION.
"You see, that's the regime's modus operandi", he said. "You need to take notes".
Unlike the European travel restrictions, we actually coordinated with our ally on this one: "President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that the USA and Canada had agreed to close their border to all "nonessential traffic" because of the spread of the coronavirus". Chinese American actress Katie Leung, 32, known for playing Cho Chang in the Harry Potter film series, also slammed the POTUS for writing "Chinese Virus" in tweets. The virus actually has a name Covid19.
She is not the only person in the Asian American community speaking up.
President Donald Trump-whose presidency has been marked by repeated and grossly offensive racist rhetoric and policies-came under fire Wednesday for again defending his use of the racist term "China virus" to describe the coronavirus sweeping the globe.
Almost simultaneously, Trump was asked at a press conference whether he thought he was putting Asian American people at risk by using such language.
