Racism against Asian people, and in particular Chinese, people has a long and ugly history in the United States. The history continues in a land where white supremacy continues to be one of the foundations of "our" social, political, and economic system.
The ugly and brutal murder of Private Danny Chen last October and the subsequent reports of what led to his death is just one more nasty reminder of how so called "soft" racism leads to very "hard" racism.
Now, we have all the China bashing associated not with just Republicans in their primary contests, but by Democrats and others as well. "Blame it on the Chinese", is a new mantra.
