The General Chamber of Commerce expresses the concept of election and seeks the support of Chinese voters. She said that she opposed the cancellation of the special high school entrance exam (SHSAT) and opposed the rise of the "red apple" incident to racism, splitting African-American and Chinese communities.
Mayor Bai Sihao’s proposal to cancel SHSAT has been protesting in the Asian community since it was announced in early June. Robinson said that Bai Sihao’s practice of canceling SHSAT on the grounds that the proportion of Hispanic and African-American students is too low is “absurd and ridiculous”. "It's like saying that Hispanic and African-American students are too stupid to test SHSAT, so they can't go to special high school!" Robinson said that SHSAT is a fair benchmark for testing a student's academic ability. The city should be Hispanic and Ethnic minorities such as African descent provide more cram schools and student resources, rather than unsuccessfully canceling SHSAT.
Robinson said that the incident was an independent incident between merchants and guests, and it should not rise to Chinese and non-governmental incidents caused by Chinese-American and Chinese-American violence and protests caused by the “888 Happiness New Red Apple” Chinese manicure store that has been continuously fermented recently. Ethnic disputes between ethnic groups. She pointed out that African-Americans, like Chinese, belong to ethnic minorities in the United States and are united in order to gain more resources and seek better development.
