    There’s a British, a South African and possibly a Brazilian (shaved?) version of Covid-19 sweeping many countries.

    Are these terms equally racist as “The Chinese virus”?
    🤣 shaved Brazilian version.

    My point is simply that there's an extremely strong ideological motive for many
    Westerners to keep blaming China regardless of evidence or scientific findings.

    Don't pretend that all Westerners approach with an open mind the question of Covid-19's origins.
    As far as I can tell, few Westerners have an open mind about it.

    Of course, anti-Chinese racism is popular and admired by white people in this forum.
    Your reality is as warped as that of a trump supporter.
    Seriously. There maybe one or two people on this forum with an anti-Chinese bias, but the vast majority don’t.

    The vast majority, if you say: The Chinese Virus” will not think you’re blaming China. Just like a vast majority don’t blame Spain for the Spanish flu or Mexico for the Mexican flu.

    And, to top it off, not once in my life have I ever heard anyone refer to the Chinese as the cause of the black death.
    Everyone says: Rats from boats.
    Some will say: fleas from rats from boats.
    And if you ask them: where did these boats come from?
    They’ll answer: Africa? Asia?
    And if you ask: who is to blame for the
    Black death?
    Everyone answers: rats (or fleas from rats) from boats.

    Nobody has ever said (as far as I know): “Oh, the bubonic plague... the Chinese caused that.”
    Not one. Zero.

    However, if trump has said it, I won’t be surprised. But then again, he’s as mad as a hatter.

    Good point.
    Maybe one day people will say the coronavirus came from a weird practice people did back in the day when they took living animals to 'wet markets' and then killed them to eat them.

    This is another of Shavixmir's anti-Chinese racist troll threads.

    Anti-Chinese racism is already completely normalized and almost universally
    accepted in this forum, so Shavixmir does not have to work hard to be popular.
    What do you mean?

    President Trump often proclaims 'Blame China!' Has he ever said 'Blame Britain'?
    That’s because it started in china’s filthy wet markets, or less likely in the Wuhan lab where a blunder released it. Lots of viruses seem to originate from China.

    They mutate elsewhere as they travel the globe causing death and destruction.

    Duchess64 gets upset with China taking accountability and always, without fail, pulls the “racist” card in a hand-flapping histrionic defence of personal outrage. She cannot see the difference between accountability and racism.

    It’s even worse than that, them Brits have decided to call it the ‘Kent Variant’. Racist pigs.
    I think we need to remember that just because a country or region detects the variant first does not mean that it mutated into existence there.
    I would say the term the China Virus is inherently more racist because its gratuitous and would leave someone hearing the term confused as to what was being referred to in a scientific sense. The Covid 19 or corona virus is a much better descriptor.

    There is nothing racist about the term 'British variant". Again, it only designates a birthplace of the variant of the Sars-Cov-2 virus. Nothing more, nothing less. And if you look deeper into it than that, I suggest you are a racist looking for trouble.

    I suggest you practise some reading comprehension.

    Ot stop drinking.

    You seem to be arguing against points not being made.

    Long ago, WHO declared that it's wrong to call Covid-19 the 'Chinese virus'.
    Reputable doctors and scientists (like Anthony Fauci) do NOT use that term.

    Only racist politicians and media, eager to demonize the Chinese or to divert attention
    from Western failures, keep using that term. Of course, they are supported by
    many racists in this narrow racist forum.

    Okay. What do you think about calling it the British variant, then?
    Is that racist as well?
