  • You know, I'm really shocked to see that some people in Taiwan would use this type of language to attack the leader of the W.H.O.

  • Not because of how he has handled the COVID-19 virus, but also because of his race.

  • Yeah, I'm kind of shocked with it, too.

  • Because we've never really experienced anything like that.

  • But we'd be fools not to believe that people don't use that type of language.

  • Because, you know, I've been out, been around friends and they've used the derogatory language.

  • It kind of hurt me inside.

  • I know they don't mean it.

  • But of course, he wouldn't know and I'm sure he was affected by it in some way.

  • You know, actually, Taiwanese people are really compassionate, caring, and loving people.

  • And I think that that's something that we can share with the whole world and I think people can learn about.

  • Yeah, that's a part of the reason why I fell in love with this country and decided to give up my citizenship is because of how caring and passionate they were and the safety that comes about from it.

  • So this a learning experience for all of us, especially, you know, when debating and rebuttal comes into play.

  • Don't give them excuse to get distracted from what the issue isand the issue is the virus.

  • When you start using the derogatory slurs, attacking his race or attacking the color of his skin, then now the issue is about racism and not about the virus.

  • It's really a bad thing.

  • But we can definitely learn from this as a people.

  • Now that we got that over, we need to let Mr. Tedros Adhanom know about himself.

  • Listen, you are the leader of the W.H.O., the World Health Organization!

  • You have more things to be worried about.

  • You can't be over here crying and worried about what somebody in Taiwan said about you and how they made you feel bad.

  • Pull yourself together!

  • This is about the COVID-19 virus and how serious this is.

  • Right, yeah.

  • I mean, you're worried about, you know, what's being said by some, you know, trolls on the Internet who's [who are] using racial slurs.

  • At the end of the day, if you're in charge of one of these... [the] largest health crisis that me and... you have in our lifetimes, then how could you really fight this thing?

  • And, you know, don't use it as an escape, a distraction and don't play games with the world and especially not with Taiwan.

  • You know, the first time you mentioned us [Taiwan] is dealing with, you know, racial slurs.

  • Admit that you're dropping the ball right now.

  • We called you out on it and do something about it.

  • We're really handling this thing well.

  • -Is that right? -Right!

  • And if you really want to learn something, come to Taiwan and learn how we've handled this situation.

  • Look how well we're doing.

  • If you really want to learn something, come here and learn from us.

  • Learn from the policies that we are enacting here and trying to help our island, our country, become a better place.

  • That's what you really need to do.

  • Absolutely!

You know, I'm really shocked to see that some people in Taiwan would use this type of language to attack the leader of the W.H.O.
