Why African Americans are at higher risk of dying from coronavirus

"If we thought we saw something bad in NYC, then just wait until this hits the Deep South." African Americans are suffering from COVID-19 disproportionately compared to the rest of the U.S. population.

    People of color not Just AA community . The native Americans have these same disparities for the same reasons Talk about one without the other is lack of compassion or otherwise its an appearance of caring so much about the AA community.

    Based on these comments, we all are in trouble here. She is pointing out some facts about the lives of some Black people that put us more at risk for getting Covid 19.

    Esto no es sintomatico, es sistematico y perverso. Hace dias estaba en un lugar donde no habia nubes o alguna fuente de agua y casualmente me cayo una gota en el brazo. Que curioso? Estaran esparciendo bichos al rededor del mundo!

    But why is this? I’m genuinely curious as to why the color of someone’s skin makes them a higher risk for viruses or neurological or any other of the “8 of 13” reasons. No condescending, or judging. Just trying to understand. I have two cousins who are African American and a brother who is half Mexican. Two of my best friends are African American and I was in their wedding. I’m not being “racist” I promise. Just trying to understand.

    Lies! Black people are NOT the face of the Coronavirus as the news media and these crisis actors want you to believe and they are being called out all over the country for being FAKE nurses and doctors by some of the top real life doctors and nurses in the country. The Coronavirus was weaponized in China by an American lab in Wuhan, brought to America by a Jewish banker who lived in New Rochelle, New York (the first outbreak reported) and it spread from him and his family in a Jewish community first to everyone else. Stop LIYING on Black people! Black people make up less than 3 to 4% in America so there is NO WAY more hey are the face of this pandemic at all! In the beginning of this outbreak Black people were can you from the coronavirus until our government released the third (3) strand of it and that’s a FACT! Do your research and see that everything I just stated is 100% TRUE!
