Elite corporate CEOs held a zoom conference over the weekend. Their mission was to show they are woke to state laws that suppress minority voters. Or, in other words, to stay a step ahead of the mob. Ed Bastian, CEO of Atlanta based Delta is very concerned about the Georgia voter law which requires ID, just like the company he runs. In 2015 Delta paid $450 million for a 3.5 percent stake in its Chinese partner China Eastern Airline.

Asian Discrimination Anti-Racism Issue of the Week

Asian discrimination,

Joe Biden accused Trump of Asian discrimination when he banned flights from China due to the corona virus. More recently, eight innocent people were murdered in Atlanta. Six of them were Asians. And now hate against Asians is the cause of the month. It’s real alright – check out this thug in mid-day Manhattan.

But Asians are also one of the most successful minorities in America. And if we’re looking for non-violent Asian discrimination Harvard is a good place to start.

But did the Atlanta victims die because they were Asian? So far there’s not proof of it. The shooter says he’s a sex pervert with issues. Sometimes a perv is just a perv.

It’s time for unity. And Joe Biden wants to let bygones be bygones. No hard feelings about President Trump being a Russian agent and all.

President Xi in China has even stronger feelings for unity. He’s bringing Hong Kong closer to mainland China. Much closer.

The WSJ reports Hong Kong authorities booted four pro-democracy legislators last week. And then the remaining pro-democracy contingent resigned.

Hong Kong’s fate is especially important because it shows China can’t be trusted to keep its international promises. Its treaty with the U.K. promised autonomy to Hong Kong for 50 years through 2047. It was extinguished in 2020.

TikTok is a hot property. It’s the world’s 7th biggest social-media company and popular with the under 25 group. It’s also owned by Chinese company ByteDance and that’s a worry to the feds. They’re afraid China will get access to TikTok user data. And that caused President Trump to threaten to ban the app in the U.S. But along comes Microsoft with an offer buy TikTok. And now Trump wants a finders fee.
