    Regrettably this directly stems from your previous president’s ignorant and uneducated language when it came to a virus that doesn’t see colour, religion or sex. In a way the Virus is showing us that we are all really the same and that we should always be looking after the more vulnerable in society.

    Honestly, Todd Phillips owes Jeong an apology for having him portray the most racist caricature of Asians since Mickey Rooney in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. That undoubtedly did a lot of damage to the community. I’m just glad Jeong proved that he’s far more than that.

    I’m pretty sure the fact he made millions of dollars speaking in a fake exaggerate Asian accent, playing an insane caricature of an Asian man for laughs didn’t help with the whole Asian hate thing. As a matter of fact I know it didn’t.

    To be honest you Asians have always been racist towards the black communities. The crazy part is blacks are the first to support the hair stores, nail salons, and restaurants. To me this your Asian reminder that your not white. All you other minorities who think you got more wiggle room…. you don’t.

    Ken Jeong is one of the poorest representations for Asian men in the US. I never want to see him ever again. He’s an embarrassment.

    “Don’t be assholes”, underated statement and best motto to living life. Kung flu, Fox helped spread those lies. Maybe quit or kneel for 5 minutes or something?

    If you think that movies that came out between 8 and 11 years ago had anything to do with what’s been going on, you’re out of your mind. You can’t blame this on Leslie Chow. Neither him, nor Ken, nor the director or whatever exec you’re trying to blame sparked any flame of hatred toward the Asian community.

    I love all people. There is good in everyone. Any form of hate is unacceptable and those who hate I pray that they will realize what they’re doing. Because as of now they have no realization. They are blind. It would be a shame that they would only find out the gravity of their mistakes in the next life. At that point it will be too late for them. Learn to love all people, all beliefs because there’s beauty in everyone. There’s no reason for hate and it takes a stronger person to rise above it and to you find reasons to love

    The Corona Virus was declared its origin from China, but Old Asians of all races or women are being attacked by cowards especially by N cowards. Victims are like Thai, Filipina, Japanese. etch., They are not from China and they are not even Chinese but the cowards do not care.

    America is a racist ‘looted’ nation coz America was founded on racism and the evidence is tens of millions of native people who were Asian origin were slaughtered, butchered and annihilated to establish this racist nation. Prove me wrong.

    Asian moms, stop telling your children to shut up instead teach them how to express themselves.

    In the Bay Area, 85% of the attacks against Asians are committed by Black people. And the Bay Area is one, if not the most woke place in all of America.

    You can’t solve racism Ken no matter how many people like to imagine it. Racism is and will forever be a part of humanity because racism like religion is an ideology. You can’t kill ideas although I will say you can slow the spread by capping heads.

    If you take race out of hate crimes, all you get is harassment, violence, and other crimes. People who commit hate crimes are criminals before racists. Just punish them according to law and take out emotions. Racism isn’t punishable as a crime, so labeling everything as being racist before labeling it as a crime is not helping anyone’s case. You can deal with crime with law, but its harder to deal with racism with law. All racism is now is a tool for social media to create more racism and hate and emotions to make money.
