    From the above article:

    Experts say that the nation’s unwillingness to publicly track the virus by race could obscure a crucial underlying reality: It’s quite likely that a disproportionate number of those who die of coronavirus will be black.


    The reasons for this are the same reasons that African Americans have disproportionately high rates of maternal death, low levels of access to medical care and higher rates of asthma, said Dr. Camara Jones, a family physician, epidemiologist and visiting fellow at Harvard University.


    “COVID is just unmasking the deep disinvestment in our communities, the historical injustices and the impact of residential segregation,” said Jones, who spent 13 years at the CDC, focused on identifying, measuring and addressing racial bias within the medical system. “This is the time to name racism as the cause of all of those things. The overrepresentation of people of color in poverty and white people in wealth is not just a happenstance. … It’s because we’re not valued.”
    The Democrats only value Black People for their vote. The more people who are dependent on the government, the more people who will vote for the Democrats and their subsistence welfare.

    Democrats are not interested in lifting black people out of poverty.

    Additionally most black people live in the large cities and it is large cities at this time that are being effected with the virus.

    And black people do have more heart disease than white people - mostly due to genetics so with this virus it would make sense they would be effected more.

    Of course theses idiots blame it all on "racism". "Racism" means it's not YOUR fault, rather it's the fault of other people. So why bother finishing high school, waiting to get married to have kids, stay out of trouble with the law and do other things that promote success.

    But then Democrats tell us that even suggesting those is "RACIST".
    OBAMA'S H1N1 VIRUS: From April 12, 2009 to April 10, 2010, CDC estimated there were 60.8 million cases (range: 43.3-89.3 million), 274,304 hospitalizations (range: 195,086-402,719), and 12,469 deaths (range: 8868-18,306) in the United States due to the (H1N1)pdm09 virus.

    It's funny how the Dem playbook is followed so carefully around the country. The City of St Louis (Dem mayor, liberal) have started tracking where the deaths are by zip code and publishing on all the local stations. They make a point of saying that most of the deaths (believe it's 5) were from North St Louis, which has become a predominantly black area. Now St Louis County (Dem County Supervisor) is following suit.

    But they'd best explain the first cases were in Ladue, a very wealthy community. The other cases, at least initially, were from the class who traveled to Europe often. The first case had been attending an Italian University. So I guess a case could be made for the opposite---that the wealthy are more prone to the virus.

    Who knows? I'm just sick and tired of the Dems trying to make everything political. They don't have a soul, are ghouls. I don't know how much further they can sink.

    Because the numbers are taken from cities that are predominantly black. So what's the mystery here........... do you think New Orleans is a white city ? no it isn't nor is Baton Rouge or Houston or El Paso and all the small cities between. You throw in the spoiler like race totals that make up the 325 plus million Americans and it's very easy to use this number they use to try and twist the truth. More blacks die or infected because they live in a black controlled city that has fewer to NO whites or other races living. The New Orleans infection can be contributed to their mayor and governor who allowed party time to over rule common sense. Now they are crying about the death rate and want to blame someone which is their usual approach to everything they touch. I hate liberalism and the people who continue to spread the manure. Truth is not in their vocabulary

    Headline: World ends, Women and minorities effected the most
    Progressivism is a bottomless pit of absurdity.

    Oh for @#$% sake! Treat the sick person and "worry" about their skin color later, if ever!

    There's no money in race-baiters suing the coronavirus for racial discrimination!

    It's not like semi-ignorant white supremacist types have the intellectual chops to spread infection in black communities (where they'd stick out like the pus-dripping sore thumbs they are!)!

    And are DU-grade Progs working up to claim that the hardest-hit areas, all Democrat-governed (NY, WA, NY, CA, NY, LA, NY), are discriminating against blacks in treatment?!

    NYC, a Dem stronghold, is the number one hotspot. Not only is the virus racist but it is also partisan.

    They just can't let go of Identity Politics even in a world pandemic.

    It just shows how arrested their thinking really is.
