It’s been a long week for all of us, so forgive me if I don’t have the energy to participate in a debate about whether President Trump calling the virus “Chinese” is racist. Of course it is. And it’s something we’ve all seen before, when Vincent Chin was murdered in 1982 during a recession that politicians blamed on Japan; when Muslim Americans were targeted after 9/11; when the AIDS crisis was blamed on gay men; when Japanese Americans were sent to incarceration camps during World War II.

Kids & Family Artist, Pilot, Quilter, and Mother Suzanne Dunkley , Neighbor Posted | Updated Reply One year ago on August 22, 2017, my mother, former Alexandria resident Gene Pauline Hine Ives, died in Melbourne, Florida after suffering a stroke.
