Synopsis: With the development of COVID-19 and the rise of xenophobia against Asians, our study explores the history and patterns of disease and discrimination. In analyzing these patterns, we look into the Black Death, HIV/AIDS, Ebola, and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic in hopes of fueling a break in the cycle of hatred and fear. Among these illnesses, it is evident that the most detrimental disease of all is human judgment, and we hope that by shedding light on these issues, we will prompt the change we want to see in this world.
