Experts say there is vast underreporting of coronavirus-related racist attacks against Asian-Australians.

I'd not have thought the antisinicism in Oz could be this bad.

Otherwise, the Chinese would not be as defending the CCP and their country as they're (allegedly) so brazen in doing.

A public outcry over alleged racist overtones forces German car manufacturer Volkswagen to pull an advertisement and issue an apology.

 Pretty bizarre ad. 

An attempt at being edgy? But surely carried way beyond good taste and ultimately only appealing to Americans.

I wonder if they genuinely thought casting a black man was giving them a racial diversity credit?

i think it was intended as a self-depreciating skit on arrogance.

I don't like that "there will be consequences" thing - comics are paid to be edgy and are bound to get it wrong sometimes. Move on people, not a story.
