I say we’re learning to live with it. We have no choice.” With these words, President Donald Trump has shown himself to be the Marie Antoinette of our times, and the pandemic is his own garish Versailles. The rot enveloping him, literally infecting himself and his closest aides, has only been made worse by his own words and action.

Trump has made it incredibly clear that he simply doesn’t care about the millions of Americans who are infected, the hundreds of thousands who have died, as well as those who will die as a result of his complete indifference in the face of the greatest public health crisis of several lifetimes. For members of Black, Indigenous and people of color, or BIPOC, communities, this notion of having no choice hits right in the gut.

In some parts of the country as many as 80 percent of Covid-19-related deaths are in Black or brown communities.

Black and LatinX people are dying of Covid-19 at higher rates in this country. Those who are not dying are almost guaranteed to lose years off of their life expectancy. In short, their lives are cut short no matter what because of Covid-19, aided by an administration that has failed to address it.

This is apparent when you enter the doors of any clinic like mine in the United States, where millions of patients receive Covid-19 testing and more than half of the positive cases are racial and ethnic minorities; in some parts of the country as many as 80 percent of Covid-19-related deaths are in Black or brown communities.  read more…

  1. Emails obtained by U.S. Right to Know show that a statement in The Lancet authored by 27 prominent public health scientists condemning “conspiracy theories suggesting that COVID-19 does not have a natural origin” was organized by employees of EcoHealth Alliance, a non-profit group that has received millions of dollars of U.S. taxpayer funding to genetically manipulate coronaviruses with scientists at the Wuhan Institute of Virology.
    This virus was clearly engineered to have gain of function. There are several scientific studies that support this. Anyone that has a family member die from it should sue EcoHealth Alliance. If it is hitting one race over another then it could be assumed to have been designed that way.
