    Glad to see the mayor has his priorities in order.

    Mayor De Blasio Says NYC Is Preparing To Release Data Showing A Racial Disparity In COVID Cases


    https://dailycaller.com/2020/04/07/de-blasio-disparity-coronavirus/

    "New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday that city officials are preparing to release data he said shows a racial disparity in coronavirus cases.

    “This disease is affecting people disproportionately in lower-income communities” and “communities of color” in particular, de Blasio said in a statement.

    Data on patients’ age and gender are available, but tracking such information on race amid a health crisis is more difficult, he added.

    De Blasio, a Democrat, was referring to what he and others believe is a racial component to coronavirus, which originated in Wuhan, China in early December before canvassing the globe, killing tens of thousands of people in the process. Other Democrats have expressed similar sentiments.

    New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, for instance, said in an April 3 tweet that long-term environmental racism and income inequality were underlying reasons why the virus is impacting black neighborhoods.
    “Inequality is a comorbidity,” Ocasio-Cortez told her Twitter followers before suggesting reparations should go to those people who are the hardest hit. “COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations.” Some civil rights activists believe data on race is the only way to determine a solution to the coronavirus, or COVID-19.

    “Our ability to fully understand and confront this pandemic requires and demands that we obtain racial data now,” Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, told NBC News Tuesday. Her group is calling for the release of racial and ethnic data on infections, as well as testing and deaths, NBC noted.

    De Blasio, for his part, received scorn for downplaying the virus in February and early March. His office and New York City Health Commissioner Oxiris Barbot took turns telling citizens in those months that the virus was not as widespread as people thought. Data now show that the city is becoming the epicenter for the coronavirus, which has killed 883 New Yorkers."

    The racial disparity is most evident in skin color. Can Cuomo defeat the Sun in court?
    Presentation of plaintiff: the Sun is biased as to skin pigmentation.

    That won't be hard to believe, because those groups of people are to DAMN STUPID, to follow the social distancing guidelines, etc..

    I’m sure it will be the fault of white people and not the fact there are actual differences between the races and diseases affect the races differently as it has been known for quite some time.

    I’m looking forward to the court case, City of New York Vs. Novel Carona Virus 19. Whereas the Noval Carona Virus 19 (NCV-19) did willfully and with malice afore thought, did exhibit racial profiling in their selection of hosts. We seek punitive and compensatory damages of $1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000. :rofl:

    I read earlier that blacks have a large percentage of diabetes and high blood pressure.

    If I get it then its because of a failure in social distancing but if someone with enough intersectionality points get it...then they are victim of some kind of bias.

    He’ll be demanding higher mortality rates for the ‘master race’. Expect race to affect triage decisions.

    They do. They’re more likely to get diabetes and high blood pressure than other races. Theyre more likely to get colon cancer as well. Which means they’re more likely to have underlying medical conditions prior to contracting COVID-19, which means they’re more likely to die from it.

    One’s skin color says much about one’s biochemistry.

    A dark-skinned Black person cannot eat an ideal Caucasian’s diet and vice versa.

    Add poverty and poor choices and “Voila!”

    A pandemic will unmask things like this.

    How many of your Black friends mountain bike or do whatever it is you do (assuming you’re active).

    When I moved to Detroit Metro the Blacks laughed that I’d kayak, canoe, run, play competitive flag football, judo/jujitsu, hike, owned two bikes and USED them.

    Well, they gained maybe 2 to 5 lbs per year. I didn’t.
