America was indeed very antisemitic in the 20s and 30s.

I thought you'd be super keen to expose such bigotry.

There again, you won't condemn a country where Jews cannot marry non-Jews.

Aletheia made a comment that he could use to springboard off topic.

It doesn't take much.

However he is right that the US was very antisemitic, never mind negroes or Irish.

in one of the more posh beachclubs on Long Island you could see a sign saying:

No jews, no negroes, no Irish , no dogs!

And in Palm Beach there is a famous country club who will still not accept jewish members, and who expelled a friend of mine for bringing one as a guest.

Also, more than 1 US bank loaned money to Hitler. (I reserve the names).

To quote Grouch Marx :- " Please accept my resignation. I don't want to belong to any club that will accept me as a member "

It was Amina who first introduced racist prejudice against the Chinese, concerning Huawei in message 4 - and the comment was picked up and amplified immediately in message 5.

I don't know how people have the nerve - the Chinese have suffered hugely from prejudice in the last 70 years (and before then for 100s of years).

There should be a word for it - how about "anti-Sinicism"?

I DID NO SUCH THING! Not on message 4 or any other. Read more, write less.
