  • Everyone needs to understand that Asians and Asian Americans in the US have absolutely nothing to do with covid. If anyone believes in the conspiracy theory, then it may be some people living in China. Therefore, everyone please stop blaming or hurting Asians living in the US or other countries. This is just stupidity. Should we blame all Germans because of Hitler? Should African Americans blame all white people because of slavery? Thanks

    • @Who_dey Gotwins yeah they do tf yall are really just trying to pin minorities against each other. The people in the videos are being held accountable for their actions. They've all been charged except the white guy, he killed one of them and got let free to go. Yall saying that black people are the problem when they're not. The problem is people being racist and anti-asian.

  • Out of all the asian communities and this is a fact and logic. You do not want to mess with the Filipinos in the streets or in any Filipino- American community. Everybody knows that ever since in the streets since the 90's. Whether its in the streets and professional status as well. I think its time for the Filipinos to step up and speak up to help stop all this hate between each other. To stop all this hate and racism across our country nationwide and protect the Asian community and other nationalities as well, besides Asian Americans, especially the elderly ones. What's going on with kids and people this days. They literally follow what they see on tv and social media which majority of it is fake that Trump embedded that seed of hate and lies since day one. I mean seriously wake up. TRUMP DOWNPLAYED THE CORONAVIRUS SINCE DAY ONE THATS WHY OUR COUNTRY GOT THIS MASSIVELY WORST when it comes on controlling the virus. ITS COMMON SENSE!! Even my 5 year old daughter can understand that. stop watching too much tv and learn to read a book my goodness sakes. PLUS Seriously. Your attacking the elderly. How low is that.. Its our core value to us Filipinos for more than 500 years as Catholics. To respect our elders no matter what nationality you are...

  • Something I had noted a few days ago, I’m glad we had the BLM protests last year after so many heinous crimes against the African-American population, but truth is ending racism for one minority is not going to be enough. Now I see the same outrage for the Asian-American population and I realize this is another step in the right direction. Racism will only end when every race is considered equal. Keep fighting for your equal treatment and voice to be heard Asian-Americans✊

    • @S. H. actually BLM hasn't we can't speak for Asians but we can speak with them. We cant set up protests because we are not part of the Asian community. What we can do is go to the protest, sign petitions, and spread the word. but we can't be the ones that start the movement. Also, BLM is to fight against police brutality, BLM is for black lives not everyone else's lives. That's why all have your own movement
