Today is the beginning of the Chinese Lunar calendar, and the year of the Ox.
Unfortunately, I was watching The Real recently and there is a very disturbing situation in this country, mostly out west where elderly Asian people are being attacked for what appears to be no reason at all. They are not usually robbed. There are just some kind of idiots out there shoving elderly Asian people to the ground. What the hell is this world coming to? One of the hosts said that she’s had to tell her grandparents to stay in the house and not to take their usual walks. It just boggles the mind that there are people who think elder abuse is a fun way to spend their afternoon.
The older Asians are being advise by their families, not to go to the bank to get the traditional cash to gift in red envelopes this year and just stay in their homes.
