Blaming is worst than not complying to social distancing.
Yes, I said it!
I heard about the real contagion at Cargill plant in Alberta and that Filipino workers were being accused or blamed for causing another outbreak in the province.
I don't think we can benefit from this blame-mongering that put one community against the other.
Instead of asking how can we help, we need to stop looking for blame instead, look for solutions.
What Covid-19 taught all us all these weeks is that we need to be more discerning about the information we are digesting and the voices out there in the public square.
This is trash, period. There is no value whatsoever to the kind of misinformation and deception behind the allusion to certain cultural dynamics of a particular community or group of people.
I don't think we should go there. Not now, not even when there is no crisis.
