Race, that is. Otherwise, how could a virus be genetically predisposed to pick one group over another? Some wise college students surely have the answer.
The state University at Albany is investigating whether an off-campus coronavirus-themed party violated the college’s student code of conduct, the university confirmed Thursday.
Asian American Alliance, a university student organization, condemned the party hosted by students last weekend, saying it was insensitive and racist. A statement on the alliance’s Instagram account said the virus “has led to not only mass stereotyping of Asian people, but also hundreds of deaths across the world.”
The virus is bad enough. If this party happened as alleged, then it was in poor taste. Seeking punishment via an evil “code of conduct” is as bad or worse, unAmerican. But, through their demand, the Asian students make an interesting admission: “Diseases that affect non-white populations are radicalized…” Well, only Asians have died from the nCoV thus far. Interesting, is it not? A better demand might be for answers about how the thing either mutated or was designed (radicalized, if you will). Who could have benefited?
