As we receive more reliable statistics on the deathly impact of the virus across the world, we see the devastating impact not only along age lines, but also along race, with black Americans being killed at high rates. That is not because of some disposition, but the result of race interacting with class and status: “The slurry mix of economics, medical bias and institutional inequality that creates and perpetuates health disparities make black Americans prime targets for health disparities. If you are black, inequality is inescapable. It waits for you at the bus stop. It follows you across town. It emails you at work. It lingers in the air” as observed and described in this article by The Root. This sad truth is pronounced in New York as well as in other parts of the country. Particularly drastic examples are St. Louis, New Orleans, and also Milwaukee.
