Wu-Tang Clan's RZA Shuts Down Xenophobia Against Asians

The world has been molly-whopped by SARS-CoV-2 in a way that no other disease has ever affected the globe.

Most commonly known as COVID-19 or coronavirus, the disease, which originated in Wuhan China, is uber contagious.

Since December of 2019, the disease has spread throughout the world like fire-Beyoncé-gossip.

After many leading American politicians dismissed it as a foreign phenomenon or elevated flu, they woefully had to change their tunes as almost 200,000 people have contracted the disease in the United States - so far.

Now it is a pandemic. Now it is a national emergency.

Now the disease is a source for said politicians to point the finger and dig up another illness: racism.

President Donald Trump, who sits on top of the United States' political food chain, has publically linked COVID-19 to Asia.

He repeatedly calls the disease the “Chinese Virus,” garnering critique from people who say his attitude has added to the rise of violence against Asians in this country.

RZA has based so much of his career on creating a bridge between Asia and America through his music, which has been heavily influenced by Asian culture.

RZA took it upon himself as a leader to speak out against any discrimination towards Asians.
