Here’s the kernel of Sadanand Dhume’s Wall Street Journal column:
China’s authoritarian system of government, economic heft and technological prowess make it the foremost challenger to the U.S.-led international order that has underwritten global peace and prosperity for more than seven decades. At the same time, Asian-Americans and Pacific Islanders—some 19.3 million strong according to the Census Bureau—are America’s fastest-growing demographic group. Those who call on the U.S. to drop its criticism of China for the supposed well-being of Asian-Americans are asking Washington to enter a geopolitical boxing ring with one arm tied behind its back.
and here’s his conclusion:
In the end, America has no choice but to grapple with the threat of an authoritarian and increasingly belligerent China. But the best way to strengthen the country domestically is to reject both white supremacy and “wokeism” by striving toward a society that is race-blind, not race-obsessed.
In a country of 330 million people and growing there will always be enough evidence to support your case for practically anything. And stoking racial animosity is such a lucrative grift I expect it to continue for the foreseeable future.
