Default Even Corona virus is biased..

.
It seems Corona virus is being somewhat selective, seemingly attacking brown/black people in an inordinate manner.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/a-...cid=spartandhp

This is of course a sad situation, but it may be just a function of demographics. It seems high blood pressure and diabetes already hits the brown & black community in an inordinate manner. Perhaps it is only a matter of inner city crowded conditions..

Curiously, the article seems almost to be a note of accusation, .. to whom they are levelling an accusation, I have no idea.

We of the Caucasian community have our trouble with sunburn and cancer.. but that is just a matter of genetics. We just have to "suck it up" and learn better health practices.

Perhaps, once this crisis is past and we no longer face the immediate threat, reviewing the demographics will provide us with much illumination.

Hopefully, this most recent event requiring close cooperation.. at 6 feet of course...will continue, and we can all feature ourselves as being simply " American"..once more.

Both TR and John Wayne said if a man has to put a hyphen before "American"... then he is not a true American.. Is that so?

Come rto think of it though, John Wayne did employ a couple apparent Irish~American actors..

So when will the Black and Hispanic cohorts of the US population demand federal reparations for how prejudiced was this virus?

Where is there the highest number of cases? Large cities. Where in large cities is the densest population. The slums. Who occupies the slums. Minorities. Why are there slums? Largely because of government housing projects. Who built the housing projects? Democrats.

If you have 17 people (average!) living in 2 room apartments and half of them crash in different 2 room apartments with 16 different people what are the chances of spreading the virus around?

Air pollution is killing them. Makes them susceptible to respiratory diseases:

Exposure to air pollution linked to higher coronavirus death rates

Americans in communities with higher smog levels are at greater risk of dying from COVID-19, according to a new study that suggests the health damage from the novel coronavirus has been worsened by long-term exposure to air pollution.

Scientists at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health analyzed data on more than 3,000 U.S. counties to link small increases in long-term exposure to fine-particle pollution to substantially higher death rates from the coronavirus.

Researchers calculated long-term average levels of fine-particle pollution — lung-damaging soot also known as PM2.5 — from 2000 to 2016 and compared it to the more than 7,000 COVID-19 deaths that had occurred through April 4. They found that an increase of only one microgram per cubic meter of PM2.5 was associated with a 15% rise in the coronavirus death rate.

We should let it run its course and be done with it... Prolonging the agony is a huge waste of everything...

Remember Measles Parties?

Apparently they still do them in NYC.

Going on the subway must be like having a Corona Party.

So corona virus is the same as unwanted pregnancies and criminal activity?

It’s almost like the odds are stacked against minorities.
