University of California has published new guideline according to which students are prohibited from use terms such as “Chinese Virus” or other terms
Tolerance towards powerful China has long stepped over the US Constitution and the First Amendment. Against the background of numerous cases of insults of Asians in the USA due to the coronavirus, the University of California has undertaken to publish a special guideline in which it banned calling the deadly virus as “Chinese” or “Wuhan”.
The introductory note to the leadership states that all university staff participated in the creation of this document and their goal was “providing supportive positive and inclusive campus climates during the COVID-19 crisis.”
«Reject racism, sexism, xenophobia and all hateful or intolerant speech, both in person and online. Be an "up-stander," and discourage others from engaging in such behavior,» гsays the guideline.
But literally going down a few points below, the mention of the COVID-19 epidemic flaunts.
«Do not use terms such as “Chinese Virus” or other terms which cast either intentional or unintentional projections of hatred toward Asian communities, and do not allow the use of these terms by others. Refer to the virus as either “COVID-19” or “coronavirus” in both oral and written communications,» гsays the new rules.
In response to the new rules of the University of California, an anonymous student told Campus Reform the following “the fact that the UC system found it a reasonable expenditure of time to put together a‘ guidance document ’is a waste. This pandering to the CCP [Chinese Communist Party] is an attack on the mission and values of the University. ”
