Adding millions of non African people to the definition of people of color does not help the plight of black Americans that are descendants of slaves. I wish the left stopped this wishy washy race identity politics and victimhood. The black Americans that are descendants of slaves need help and this help should not be shifted to other groups that were never enslaved in this country.
Your inability to use definitions correctly is not relevant. Neither are your petty little judgements about progressives.
The fact is that historical racism in the US has led to a situation where people of colour are disproportionately affected by Covid-19.
Most of these people in the inner city live in public housing or receive rent subsidies. Others choose to live on the street because they are mentally ill. The government is sending unemployment checks that are actually larger than the paychecks they were receiving at work. As for overcrowding: The inner people choose to live in the inner city on their own. No one forces them to live there.
None of this is an intelligent disagreement with anything I have said.
Trump could be helping these people. He is not.
That is not how racism is defined. Any person of any racial group can be a victim of violence. If the person is assaulted because of a racial trait it is called a hate crime.
So we agree that your definition of racism was wrong.
When was the last time you beat your wife? That is not a proper question POD. You are slipping again. I know you can do better. This last post needs a bit of work. Nevertheless, you are always a gentleman and do not make arguments with insulting remarks.
I wish you would stop with the insults, but whatever.
So you do not care if Trump is being openly racist.
And yes, being apathetic and consenting of the racism of others does end up supporting racism.
So Trump supporters are supporting racism when they let Trump use this to attack China and Chinese people.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in...
