US political opinion against China has two solid bases. The first is the
longstanding racist and protectionist sentiment in the white working class;
the second is a more recent anxiety about China’s economic prowess in
America’s ruling elite. This article notes some historical aspects of
anti-Chinese racism in the white working class, part of a wider racial
prejudice that persists today, and also examines the more contemporary
aspects of the worries that China gives America by looking at the example
of Huawei, China’s flagship telecommunications and electronics company.
Anyone paying attention to President Trump’s tweets to his domestic
audience will be aware that there is a close connection between the two
issues. . .
