Who said this?
hahah you expect me to remember the names of random twitter or reddit users? i only use youtube and ive seen plenty of videos covering the topic and when trump did the China travel ban one of those videos was in part adressing the reaction on twitter/reddit (dont remember which of the two), with people saying he was over reacting or straight up saying it was a racist move.
If i remembered the video in question i would post it here but that was like a month ago and ive seen dozens of those some of them being lives streams over 2 hours long, could have been one of the many livestreams done by Metokur or something by memology etc...
To put it into context.
Back then when the virus was only in China, South Korea and Japan there was concerns that this virus would lead to racism towards asians, and there was even articles about it like this one, this one and this one there was even a video (either something done by a content creator or something made by a company) trying to combat this racism, it consisted of a asian man in the streets of Italy, wearing a mask and holding a sign that said something along the lines of "im asian and im not responsible for the coronavirus, im not infected either!", and during the video people would come over to him and hug him showing him love and acceptance, and that video came out one week before the virus outbreak in italy (as if a cruel joke from god) obviously im not saying that guy had the virus just pointing out the irony of the whole situation.
FUCKING FOUND THE VIDEO (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lULceASXv88)
What im trying to prove here is that there was a movement just a month ago (before this shit got serious outside of china) that had some people concerned about this creating racism towards asians, and back then when trump implemented the travel ban i saw a video showing some of the reactions on social media and there was people saying it was a "racist" and exaggerated move.
EDIT: Hey to prove my point further (n my search for the articles above) i just found an article about trumps chinese travel ban and in the comments (just as i said before) there are people calling him a racist for doing it and saying that he is over reacting.
here is the article
here are some of the comments
To be clear these ARE NOT the comments i saw a month ago, those were either from twitter or reddit (cant remember at this point) and i think it should go without saying it was more than just a couple of comments... but regardless there you go! proof of people calling him a racist over the travel ban and saying he is over reacting.
