What if the ‘Wuhan Lab Leak’ theory is proved? It may be the biggest economic shock for decades.

China can always bring up the Iraq war. Vietnam. Racism in America. Bring up anything really. Don’t admit to any wrongdoing. Ever. Maybe a small, tiny little concession here and there, but nothing major. The West is just jealous and trying to “keep the mighty Chinese dragon down”. They’re insecure! They cannot handle the great and glorious success of red China.

Yes maybe we Chinese are not nice to our Muslim inhabitants, but… Iraq! Weapons of mass destruction lie, haha. You’re worse, America. Much worse. Fuck you. Maybe in some ways we’re bad. Maybe. BIG maybe. But you’re worse. Lol. Argument won. Yankee western imperialist successfully destroyed.

And hey, didn’t the British bring opium to China? Didn’t the West humiliate and weaken China for a long time? Even if you could prove China unleashed some virus on purpose to weaken the West, or was at best quite careless in containing it, you’ll see Chinese hypernationalists, marinated in seven decades of indoctrination, make actual excuses for it. Justifying it. Like how they justify everything the CCP does anyway.

They’ll make some video of people in Wuhan singing some catchy song. Like how they hired some supposed Uyghurs to praise the Chinese state in obviously scripted messages before… and, move on. Fully expecting the world to move on soon after.

Why do people call Derek Chauvin racist even though his wife was Asian?

Because it doesn’t matter who you’re dating, married to or friends with. Take Thomas Jefferson, for instance. He kept slaves. Human beings that were his property. He also took a liking to one of them, a young girl called Sally Hemings. When Jefferson’s wife died, she became his de-facto partner, concubine, and the mother of several of his children. Children who, like their mother, were legally the propery of their father.

Now was Jefferson always evil and vile to his common-law wife, who was also his slave? Not necessarily. In fact she enjoyed certain privileges. Some of the children he had by her, he treated well. He saw it to they enjoyed a better education than the other slaves at his plantation.

So you can be racist as hell, literally keep slaves, and still have a bit of a ‘soft spot’ for one or a few of them. Of course to us, today, the very concept of owning your own family, literally owning them as property, is sick. Even in his day, some were weirded out by it. Jefferson didn’t claim the kids as his own. But he did set one of them free, later in life.

By today’s standards, Thomas Jefferson was a disgusting, horrible racist. Not to mention the fact that Sally Hemings was just fourteen when he began bedding her. For his era, though, it should be said that he was relatively benign, maybe even considerate, as far as slave owners go. Still hella racist though.

People are complex. Racists are people, so they, too, are complex. Derek Chauvin may been awfully sweet to his now ex-wife. And decidedly not sweet to the defenseless, unarmed and tied up man he murdered in broad daylight.
