Blaming Asian-Americans on the virus that started in Wuhan, China

Dear Editor,

Hate is insidious.
   There is no excuse for hateful actions.
   The 1982 murder of Chinese American Vincent Chin in Michigan was blamed on the killers’ perception that he was Japanese during the Detroit auto industry slump.
   Blaming Asian Americans for the virus that started in Wuhan, China, is merely a way to justify hate and allow festered hate to rear its ugly head.
   Politicians should not use this tragedy in playing the blame game.
   We need to work together to help unify our country as one nation under God.
