Rhetoric

There is no excuse to be kidding about the deadly pandemic

You said yourself “you never kid”

“It has 19 names” and you go to list them

Racist rhetoric is your goal.

The more you joke and dismiss us

Using racist names to move the blame from yourself

The harder the walls will crumble around you

And those that have your back now will face the reckoning

But unfortunately the damage of your rhetoric

Won’t fade so easy

Personal thoughts:

Trump has a habit of speaking his mind smudge using terms that are racist in nature. That is not okay. The president is supposed to set an example and regardless of personal thoughts supposed to unite us. Trump has never done this and anyone who says he has is blind to the facts and I am unsure how to help them. Words are just words right? Wrong! Rhetoric is never benign. And using racist terms for this deadly pandemic will have negative consequences on Asian Americans. In fact, the history of Asian Americans in the U.S. is dotted with evidence showing that such rhetoric has laid the groundwork for violence and shameful policies.”

        Yeah… 😅🤦‍♂️. It’s impossible to imagine anybody could forget THAT stuff, though… I seriously wish you and America the best with the election. The whole actual world is really cheering you on to end up with someone different, ANYBODY different.

        Thank you!! I hope things will be different. The polls look good but it doesn’t matter if people don’t translate it into voting

        Yeah…! :\. Or the votes are rigged…

        He’s got away with so much stuff now, that it’s hard to see where the limit is or if there is one. It’s harder to recognise America as a democracy at the moment, actually, because he’s getting away with being such a dictator.

        Yeah it’s very scary! Something out of a movie honestly. I’m sure there will be some sort of documentary about all of this
