“Viruses, Bacteria, or any other harmful microbe does not discriminate their host"
Wu-Tang Clan rapper RZA has slammed “racial bigotry” towards Asians triggered by the Coronavirus.
In a post on Instagram, RZA emphasised the importance of peace and community in our society.
“Peace and blessing to all the people of our communities,” he began. “Community is a compound word derived from “Common” and “Unity”. What we are unified in is our place under the sun.”
He then continued to state that discrimination towards his “Asian brothers” is “appalling”.
“We are all being affected in some capacity by this Covid 19 virus,” he said. “So when I hear that some people are singling out our ‘Asian’ brothers by attacking, discriminating, verbally abusing them, etc. It’s appalling and unacceptable.”
“This conduct reduces us backwards to the racial bigotry that our communities have long fought against,” he added. “Viruses, Bacteria, or any other harmful microbe does not discriminate their host. This problem is a Human problem, so may we all stick together to combat it united as a Global Community.”
In related news, over 650 attacks on Asian Americans were reported in the last week amid the Coronavirus pandemic.
