Millions of years. There were no fossil hominids in the Precambrian, yo.

That dig aside, you're missing my point -- provided the Chinese government does shit right after this abates, they'd need their own medical authorities to advise them on the best course to take to stave off disaster.


The brain actually started evolving before hominids did. As for china and containing viruses, they have thousands of years of medical science on their side. They don't need to learn it from us. Shit, white people learned alot of their medical advancements from the Chinese (as did black and latino people obviously).

No I'm not enabling anyone. We can be against racist violence while also blaming the government that caused this.

While you and several others were upset about this being called the China virus, China accused our government of creating and spreading COVID as a biological weapon without evidence. I notice there was no one waging keyboard warfare over that damn dirty lie. It is necessary to keep reminding everyone that this is indeed of chinese origin, because #1 it places the blame on the guilty party and #2 offends a foreign dictatorship and unwitting useful idiots that prop them up by caping for them.

Last I checked, nobody of prominence in the west actually fell for the Chinese government propaganda.

If an area was ours for 500 years and yours for 50 years, it should belong to us – you are merely occupiers.
If an area was yours for 500 years and ours for 50 years, it should belong to us – borders must not be changed.
If an area belonged to us 500 years ago but never since then, it should belong to us – it is the cradle of our nation.
If a majority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must enjoy the right of self-determination.
If a minority of our people live there, it must belong to us – they must be protected against your oppression.
All of the above rules apply to us, but not to you.

That reporter that got mad at trump for calling it china virus seemed to. And even if no one of prominence did, does that make it less annoying? No one of prominence spring breaked in Florida and we still despise the people who did it. Calling for a ban on people from the PRC coming here when their government actively undermines us all the time is nothing but logical. Taiwan and Singapore are cool but not China.

I expect that the virus will have significant geopolitical affects. Regimes such as North Korea and Iran may be at risk of collapse, which could cause crisis of their own, as the global economy sinks and Europe and America lose much of their authority on the world stage.

Yes actually.

China and Trump are currently sparring over who is to blame for COVID. I'm not a fan of either of them so I'm willing to spread the blame around.

It’s almost like Asian Americans (and really, Asian people all over the world) have faced attacks and discrimination all over the world, and calling it “China Virus” won’t help that.

Yeah, but that was because it was a large number of people. China’s propaganda didn’t get that either.

#1 This isn't a choice of pretend China didnt do it or let asian people die. We can blame china and tell our citizens not to get violent with random asians, Chinese or not.

#2 and i see a large number of people online claiming that it's racist to point out the chinese origin of this virus

#3 we as a nation shouldn't be setting ourselves up to be infiltrated by hostile foreign powers, even if it means banning half the world from coming here.

It would be fair to hold its government responsible. It would not be fair to blame all Americans but I have not blamed all chinese people for COVID. If you followed the last thread, you would have noticed me and des-bal going at it over the rumor that this happened because "chinese people are dirty and eat bats."

Believe me, I'm no fan of my government anymore than I am a fan of the CCP, but saying this was an american biological attack is a downright lie.

Then you should choose your words more carefully, instead of saying 'China and Trump'. While I agree that saying that this a biological weapon is ridiculous, such claims only came from China after prominent American figures suggested this to be the case, with the origins reversed of course. I suspect the Chinese accusations are more of a childish 'no you' than an actual belief, but it is important to remember that accusations of biological warfare originated in America, and are, as you say, a downright lie.

That's just how I refer to foreign relations. I've said before "America messed up the middle east," and by that I mean the government. Clearly all 325 million Americans didnt say "yeah let's body these fuckers!"

We've got rather bigger problems to deal with than if someone wants to call a pandemic "Kung Flu" or "China Virus".

I'd just go with Corona virus myself, but I don't really care what someone calls it unless they're being unclear.

This isn’t going to bring down the free market capitalist system, nor is it going to change anything. Considering many countries in Asia are reopening, chances are, it’ll just blow over and be a cool story we tell our grandkids when they’re going over the 2020s unit in history class

I'd just go with Corona virus myself, but I don't really care what someone calls it unless they're being unclear.

Also true. We are potentially facing 20 million deaths in the US in the worst case scenario.

With 40 million suffering from life altering complications, with many eventually dying.

The worry is that there will be a second wave. It’s already happening in Hong Kong. There’s fear that if the restrictions are lifted there will be another larger wave of this thing.
