ABAW Denounces the Use of Racial Language to Describe the Coronavirus & Racist Attacks on Asian Americans

The ABAW finds the use of racial terms to describe the Coronavirus/COVID-19, such as the “Chinese virus,” or the “Wuhan virus,” to be unacceptable, inaccurate, and racist.  The virus does not discriminate, and racializing a disease results in promoting xenophobic sentiment and discrimination. The World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control (CDC) both recognize the harm and inaccuracy in racializing the virus and naming new diseases after people or places; the damage of using such terms has a direct impact on ethnic and minority groups.  Such discriminatory language promotes and provokes anti-Asian sentiment, xenophobia, and anti-Asian attacks, which have been occurring in Washington state and throughout the country.  All Americans should be united during this unprecedented time to combat the Coronavirus and should be mindful and aware of how we are describing the virus for the health and safety of all.

Please visit the Center for Disease Control to further educate yourself and others on the pandemic and how to reference it.

    It is a very hard situation when playing the lottery and never won, or keep winning low fund not up to 100 bucks, i have been a victim of such a tough life, the biggest fund i have ever won was 100 bucks, and i have been playing lottery for almost 12 years now, things suddenly change the moment i came across a secret online, a testimony of a spell caster called DR EMU, who help people in any type of lottery numbers, i was not easily convinced, but i decided to give try, now i am a proud lottery winner with the help of DR EMU, i won $1,000.0000.00 and i am making this known to every one out there who have been trying all day to win the lottery, believe me this is the only way to win the lottery.
