People Are Writing Notes to Comfort Elderly Asian New Yorkers:

At the beginning of the outbreak, when the virus was still only in
Wuhan, Vivan Chen, a 38-year-old on the Upper West Side, said her
nine-year-old daughter came home from school one day upset. “Some of the
kids said they didn’t want to play with her because she was Chinese and
eats bats and had coronavirus,” Chen said. Her daughter asked if eating
Chinese food could give her the virus, and Chen had to reassure her she
would not.

I try not to get too political on this tumblr but it’s really sad to hear about kids having to deal with racism at such a young age. It’s heartbreaking to hear that she actually thought eating Chinese food could give her the virus. How will this affect her self-identity as she is growing up? I’m glad her parents are supportive though because a lot of immigrant parents just do not know how to deal with this issue with their kids.
