Is using the word "Chinese" to describe the food you are eating racist?
Using the word "Chinese" to describe a virus is.
I'm naturally curious as to why one is okay but the other one isn't.
I mean I don’t think using a word like Chinese, Asian, black, or Mexican is racist so🤷🏼‍♀️

Skylar is that you?
The oranges of the island are like blazing fire
Amongst the emerald boughs
And the lemons are like the paleness of a lover
Who has spent the night crying.


My soul was ripped to shreds on 10/27/14. I miss you!

This is describing the origin of a cuisine, respecting the culture in which is originates. Calling a virus responsible for mayhem and death, “Chinese” is racist because you are blaming an entire people for nothing. Stop being stupid. You know there’s a difference. Hateful intent and context matter.
