How deep is the ocean? How high is the sky? How mealy-mouthed about race are our major news outlets?

The New York Times just ran a 2,000-word story about East Asians being "Spit on, yelled at, attacked" by persons who blame them for the coronavirus. But who are those persons?

"Bigots" ... "a man" ... "bullies" ... "the man" ... [Spit On, Yelled At, Attacked: Chinese-Americans Fear for Their Safety,  by Sabrina Tavernise and Richard A. Oppel Jr.; New York Times, March 23rd 2020]

Below, one answer to the above question, no thanks to the NYT.
