Isn’t this a coincidence? On Sunday, The Hill reported that Joe Biden had slammed President Trump’s response to the coronavirus outbreak by characterizing it as “hysterical xenophobia and fearmongering.”

There is serious concern for a global pandemic. China already realizes they under-evaluated. Biden needs to get educated. https://t.co/sI3LeVNjAU

Amazing. They're so deranged, he actually made them come out pro-coronavirus. 🤦♂️

Now the Washington Post is looking for people to share their stories of seeing or experiencing racism or xenophobia in connection with the coronavirus. Are they reacting to Biden’s accusation, or were they inspired by CNN’s piece on the lack of diversity on President Trump’s coronavirus task force?
Have you seen or experienced any racism, xenophobia, or other forms of discrimination connected to the coronavirus epidemic? https://t.co/pzwsbmKgI8

Apparently the racism is such a problem, the WaPo needs to coax it out of their twitter followers to find any to report on.

yeah, I have. I think the virus is like, SUPER racist. It seems to be predominantly affecting Chinese people. As someone of Chinese heritage, I believe we need a diverse panel to address the inherent privilege and bigotry of this virus. I nominate @JRubinBlogger to lead it.

No words, @washingtonpost. Stupid. Inciteful. Desperate. Please take 2 aspirin and go to bed.

I have seen lots of media outlets, desperately trying to convince Americans that racism is running rampant due to this virus. – Other than that not a thing.
