    70% of the fatalities belong to 32% of the people. That should be /thread

    I think the November virus is going to finish off a lot of people off too!

    ' wonder what is so different in them, that makes them more vulnerable than others?

    "unfairly" too. Oh, my.....

    As for Walmart employees, they should ask their big bosses in China, as to why they hid their Wuhan virus epidemic to the rest of the world.

    The reason they gave was that blacks in general are more likely to have high blood pressure, diabetes and higher incidence of obesity.

    The obvious answer is that they get their info from the MSM. They don't take prudent precautions and, in many cases, someone has always showed up to bail them out. Not really a race issue but a MSM customer base issue

    Blacks, at least in the US:

    1. have higher rates of obesity
    2. have higher rates of diabetes
    3. have higher rates of heart disease
    4. have higher rates of smoking (particularly older blacks)
    5. have higher rates of high blood pressure
    6. have higher rates of stroke
    7. have higher rates of inactive lifestyle
    8. have higher rates of cancer (particularity lung, prostate, breast)
    9. have higher rates of peripheral artery disease
    10. are virtually the only race with sickle cell anemia
    11. have higher rates of domestic violence
    12. have higher rates of (death by) homicide (particularly young males) ​

    Many of which are comorbidities of CV-19 (as well as other communicable diseases). Certainly lifestyle plays a role in many of these, genetics (directly or indirectly) are a factor in at least some of these. Add this to the myth that many blacks believe/d that they were not susceptible to CV-19 and there is a high probability that blacks will have a higher mortality rate than other races in the US. (Of course, none of this is the fault of non-blacks, particularly orange people).

    Well, one thing is certain. The effected employees are definitely not those assigned to checkout isles 3 thru 19.

    BTW, The BS has not just now started. It has been with us all along!

    If they`d stop voting for democrats, their lives would have become better long before now.
    Sorry, i dont buy into their "poor me" BS. This country has opportunities to better yourself.
    Some people would rather wait for their hand out rather than actually work for a paycheck.

    Only thing i can add is on Walmart, when you have not only store level management but even the main office in Arkansas saying you don't need a mask or gloves and hiding the fact that there are employees who have tested positive from those around them in the workplace yeah i can understand the lawsuits.

    Sickle Cell Anemia isn’t something you catch. It’s a genetic condition passed down from parents. The condition also prevents you from catching malaria. So - no malaria and you usually live long enough to have children. In areas of the world with high mortality due to malaria (Sub Sahara Africa specifically), the result is a larger population with the condition.

    it IS possible that the genetic differences between races could result in different infection rates.

    And that is NOT racist, it's nature.

    A South African signed up for benefits and got them because he checked the African American check box. When they found out he was white no more benefits.

    The middle class are always going to be screwed over by the poor and rich.

    I worked the streets for along time and the culture, heritage, tribalism is so ingrained in that community it will not change in our lifetimes. They always play victim, it works for them with free handouts EBT, SNAP, WIC Programs etc, etc, then trade those benefits off for drugs at the 1st of the MONT. It’s all for the kidzzzzz

    Nature doesn't believe in fairness. That's why decent people with something to contribute to the world like John Prine get the virus and die and corrupt parasitic scumbags like Hillary Clinton don't get the virus and live.

    It's never gonna end. It's established. It's our way of living now. Over-hyped catastrophism that doesn't seem to take into account all the deaths each day normally. Never thought anything could be so over-exagerated! Before you call me a "denier," who do you know that is really sick? I had something that lasted about three weeks, but it was pretty mild.

    Same people, but with masks and crime scene tape all over the place. Joke! $6 trillion joke! I'm about to go just like normal. Wait, they may arrest me!.....Put me in the same cell that some rapist was released from so he wouldn't get a sniffle!

    IT'S ALL B.S!
    This is how we get controlled. No lies, just exagerate something in another time zone!
    Tin foil ON!

    Apparently, quite a few black people think they can’t get it according to an article headline I saw on my Facebook feed.

    The Walmart employees I’ve encountered put themselves at risk. They won’t wear masks nor maintain proper distance even while telling you to keep a six foot gap when you’re encountering the store. And good luck keeping the self-checkout attendants away from you.
