I try not to “make everything about racism” because when all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail.

Expelling Chinese people will not somehow expel the coronavirusWhen I see a petition circulating to ban wet markets, however, I can’t help but take it as a personal accusation.

While I was born in America, the wet markets were part of my mother’s daily life growing up in the slums of Hong Kong.

I only visited the Hong Kong wet markets once, in 2013, and remember live chickens in cages, about to be beheaded.

I am not for or against banning wet markets, but it is possible to feel proud of a culture you don’t entirely approve of.
