Times are getting tougher now because of this pandemic, what with rising death tolls and people suddenly losing their jobs, anxiety, fear and paranoia all across the world ...
I’m posting this #throwback and preparing for another onslaught of “Wuhan” and/or racist comments. 🙃
Firstly, this photo was taken in 2019 (do people even read nowadays?). This post is also to remind everyone that COVID-19 is NOT an excuse for people to be racist towards us Asians. Racism has been around for eons and it stops with US.
This virus outbreak has shown me just how ugly people can get; I mean look at one of my previous posts still on my profile. I may be Chinese, I may have spent some of my growing-up years in China, but I don’t eat *those* foods; in fact I don’t eat a lot of things: people close to me know I don’t eat fast food or pork unless I really have to. Heck, I’m Asian and I barely even eat RICE! 😅
With nearly half the world entering a lockdown, pandemonium is inevitable but it is disheartening that many of us are still not being kind to one another, especially towards those at the forefront (healthcare workers, this one’s for you! Thank you!) fighting the outbreak head-on. Even for me, I’ve also experienced some insensitivity and negativity firsthand lol.
It‘s during times like these that all of us should stand together, and be understanding and kind towards one another. Together, all of us can make this world a better place for both humans and animals to coexist in. ✨♥️ - 3 days ago
