Trump’s ’Chinese Virus’ slur lead to rise in anti-Asian Twitter content: Study

According to a University of California study, a tweet by former President Trump using the phrase ’Chinese virus’ sparked an increase in the use of anti-Asian hashtags on Twitter. Researchers found that those who used the hashtag #chinesevirus were more likely to use other racist hashtags. According to the Stop AAPI Hate, Asian Americans were subjected to 3,800 hate incidents over the last year.

Spanish Flu (even though it didn't originate in Spain- look it up, the truth may scare you), West Nile, Zika, Lyme disease, Ross River.... illness, viruses, and diseases throughout time have frequently been "named" on the geographic location they originated in or were first discovered in. It's not racist. It's not meant to incite violence. It's just facts. This is just another "look at what Trump did" from the left so they can go about their agenda without interference from the American people. How are your gas prices? How are those COG's treating you? I hope you've all enjoyed your hush money checks... you'll need them. Anyone else excited to start paying for sex swaps in the military!? I know I sure am jacked to help Joe become Jill using my tax dollars! /s Stop letting them distract you. Stop allowing them to pull the shade over your eyes. Misdirection should solely be used by magicians.

It was a china virus, so it is not a slur. It is the truth. It might not be helpful, but it is not a slur.

So China tried to call it the American virus before Trump retaliated with this whole Chinese virus tweet, and no one's got anything to say about that? Chinese state media tried to push this rhetoric that the virus came from the US as early as February, the they tried to out the blame on Italy, Australia and other countries in the following months. They still refused to admit that it's their slow and poor response that allowed the virus to spread. They stopped travel from Wuhan locally, but allowed for them to fly internationally for another few days before they ban international travel? That's right before the Chinese new year holidays where a lot of people booked to travel overseas, first 2 cases in Italy who they put the blame on is an old couple from Wuhan! They had their fun sightseeing like normal tourists spreading the virus all over Italy before being taken in to hospital and used Italian medical resources for free and became a super spreader. Almost no country in the world is immune to this, even HK right next to China who mostly closed their borders and have a heavy quarantine program still have outbreaks every other week or 2. When Trump tried to close borders from China, first in the world to do so, everyone on the left called him racist, now you blame him for not doing anything? Stop trying to put every blame on Trump, this is all on China.

They've been calling the new strain the UK variant so what's the difference here? The virus originated from China. It's not racist when it is fact. We aren't mad at the people of China. It's the government of China that tried to cover this up.

Don’t blame China for creating the virus, not blame Trump for pointing it out. China who are lying while committing genocide but the world is too worried about being called racist to point it out

Not a slur. Truth. Perhaps if people were actually honest with its origins then fewer people whould have died. Stop calling truth a slur. That’s dangerous!

More anti-Trump, orange-man-bad propaganda from a leftist institution... The attacks on Chinese Americans are perpetrated by majority black racist men, what is so hard to understand.

A.) that is not what the study showed. B.) the data collected is a year old & not relevant to the recent shooting. C.) The majority of the world called this the Wuhan virus for several months at the beginning Of 2020. D.) The metrics in this “study” are laughable at best. Presenting circumstantial evidence of a possible trend to correlate actual changes in experience for Asian American folk is laughably stupid.

To call a virus originated in China a "Chinese virus" is a slur. To make it harder for American-Asians to get into American universities is progressivism...

This study is wrong. Asian hate crimes (at least in the bay area of San Fran per their own stats) are 85% perpetrated by black men. Why would black men, whom we have been told ad nauseum by CNN and MSNBC absolutely hate Trump, decide to agree with him on hating all the chinese? This is a desperate attempt to survive Trump Slump.

Hi.. I’m here today to tell people that Asian is more of a category of area.. not race. Therefore this headline doesn’t make sense or people are really dumb to conflate the term Chinese to all of Asia, and if someone is dumb enough to make that false connection... why even care about what they say? Anyway, this has been my Ted talk.
