I'll be sure and take your opinion into consideration.
Just wait until the Dems propose legislation requiring white survivors to pay reparations to families of black coronavirus victims.
Yep. I've been staying in the SE TX pine woods north of Beaumont.
There are plenty of black hunters, farmers, ranchers and outdoorsmen here. See them at Tractor Supply and on the trails all the time. 6' apart, of course.
It's not *my* opinion:
...COVID-19 is causing a higher rate of deaths in African Americans. The reason needs more analysis, but experts said African Americans are more likely to have high blood pressure and diabetes -- both risk factors that have been identified in other countries for developing more severe cases of COVID-19...
There are scores of other articles on the web saying the same thing - as have other posters here.
I know, I've read many of them.
I stand by my post!!
Here's where this is going. AOC has already started it.
Because blacks are more likely to be impacted, they will be singled out in the next Pelosi Trillion Dollar deal. It won't be called reparations, as AOC wants, but race will determine how much money you get.
But wait. It gets better.
Where you live will now be a part of the formula for payola. If you are in one of the high density parts of the country, you will get a bigger check. If you live in a hard hit area, you will get a bigger check. If you are a single mother and anyone in your family has been hit - including any of the baby-daddies of your 9 kids - you will get a bigger check.
Sounds a little like pandering for votes to me... but hey, what do I know.
It HAS TO torque-off the leftist that white middle class conservatives received anything in the last bail-out package.
She will make sure that doesn't happen again.
Blood matters. About 80% of sickle cell disease cases are believed to occur in Sub-Saharan Africa and average black person has a 1 in 10 chance of getting it. Much, much lower rates among Whites and Asians.
I would say that's true, but ignoring the rules is a factor we can all see daily, so you can't pretend that isn't a big part of it. Comorbidities don't matter unless you get the virus.
Just more ridiculous leftist BS.
Stop falling for the bait. Any population with higher rates of hypertension, diabetes, hyperlipidemia, obesity, tobacco use, or sedentary living will have higher mortality from other diseases that concomitantly occur.
I psychologist friend of mine who worked in the DC Jail once told me that black people are prone to have respiratory problems. This virus is a respiratory disease.
Absolutely true - but black folks aren't the only ones disregarding the "rules".
See the 70 kids from Austin that chartered a plane to Cabo and 20+ of them came back sick. Betting the majority of those kids were white.
Yes - don't forget (gross) obesity. Last night the doctors on the FOX News programs made these points. Pre-existing conditions... Asthma, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and lung disease... They couched their comments in the fact that more blacks seem to be stricken by the disease. That may be true statistically. But they tried to hint that it wasn't race related the result of lifestyle. They don't want the left coming down on them for being racist. This has nothing to do with race. Age, however is a also worrisome condition but the left cant get any traction there.
All of the pre-existing conditions, except age, are more common to people who live in concentrated communities - projects.
Race has nothing to do with it except for lunatic left talking points. If you are obese, diabetic, have high blood pressure, high cholesterol count and smoke and contract this virus, you are in big trouble bro. Regardless of your race.
Water? What’s in the GRAPE SODA?
I have been looking for that data in NYC.
Corona knocks Obesity and Diabetes, pretty much color blind. Big time. If our African groups are taking a big hit, I would expect that.
Also confirmation data from Atlanta, GA when that becomes available.
Looking at Italy, though, a very healthy society with probably the most people living well past 60s compared to other places.
That became their weak point, OLD age.
Corona hits that, too. Seems like you can't win, huh ? If not this then it's that.
Perfect plan to get people fatter,
waiting for Covid-19 version 2.0 in the fall.
Dems are always brilliant people. They kill by kindness ?
Nobody said "only ones." What we said was we are seeing this a lot. Black folks seem to be disproportionately disobeying the rules. Statistics say that is the expected conduct and should not be a surprise.
