New Jersey—A new study out Wednesday in New Jersey details why Black and Latino residents are two to three times more likely than white residents to get COVID-19, become hospitalized and die. The report calls for state action to address inequities that have resulted in more deaths in minority communities. "We are seeing this disproportionate impact across the state," said Dr. Brittany Holom, a senior policy analyst for New Jersey Policy Perspective. "This of course goes back to policies of segregating, whether it's segregated neighborhoods, segregated schools, access to nutritious food," said Holom. "The long history of structural racism in this state."

Comments:

One of the bluest states in the crumbling union, with every handout imaginable, and still they're making excuses. Will there come a day when Black and Brown people decide to shoulder some responsibility for their own well-being?

The virus is not racist. The liberal strategy of herding minorities into segregated neighborhoods is racist.

Hm! So is it a 'class' thing - like Pervert Biden noted the other day - 'some black woman stocking the shelves' while he hides in his basement? I don't find any evidence in the article that just because some people have lower paying jobs that puts them at risk for death? If they are out in the public, yes, they may be more likely to contract COVID but to die from it? There are other factors. The first is that people living in these northern climes don't get enough exposure to sunshine and thus have low levels of Vitamin D. Vitamin D is necessary for your immune system to fight COVID. In fact, in Spain they are beginning to us a "pre-metabolized" Vitamin D (Calcifediol) as a treatment to keep folks out of the ICU. Darker skinned people have a tougher time getting Vitamin D via the sunshine obviously because they have more melanin which blocks the rays needed to make Vitamin D. Many doctors have been prescribing up to 10,000 IU to us old white folks who stay inside. A second one is that blacks have a higher rate of diabetes & heart disease - both factors in making COVID more deadly. Anything like obesity, substance abuse, smoking, sickle cell anemia and cancers - all put a person at higher risk of dying.

Lifestyle differences come into play. Living arrangements, eating habits, etc. I don't think the virus simply passes over white people like the Angel of Death.

That there may be a genetic component to higher Covid infection rates among blacks is, of course, a taboo subject. Charles Murray was excommunicated by the Left years ago for co-authoring The Bell Curve, showing that low IQs among blacks may have a genetic component. That book is hated by the Left more than Mein Kampf. In his latest book, Human Diversity, Murray had to buffer his thoughts with lots of professions about his good intentions and using a lot of word salad to slip his conclusions by the PC censors.

I guess the white people in NJ painted "KKK" on the mantles around their door, and that mean old racist virus passed them by and found a poor black family to decimate?!?!?!? Strange, I missed that in official CDC and WHO reports. Who knew??? Seriously, the last I checked, the strong majority of people who have gotten sick and/or died from Covid-19 have been old white people. I guess not in the glorious soviet socialist republic of New Jersey!!!

Military flyovers are a time-honored tradition that are greeted with roars from throngs of patriotic fans at NFL stadiums all over the country. However, given that there are virtually no fans at any NFL stadiums during the pandemic, flyovers over near empty stadiums don’t make a ton of sense. That fact was grasped, discussed, and recorded–unknowingly–by Fox broadcasters Troy Aikman and Joe Buck on Sunday as the pair were caught panning the flyovers on a hot mic.(Snip) Buck: “That’s your hard-earned money and your tax dollars at work.” Aikman: “That stuff ain’t happening with [a] Kamala-Biden ticket

The letter was sent to the VMI Board of Visitors President John Boland, and it was co-written and signed by Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax, Attorney General Mark Herring and eight state delegates.

Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander voiced his support for Dr. Anthony Fauci, the government's top infectious disease expert, after President Donald Trump blasted Fauci on Monday. Trump called Fauci a "disaster," a day after Fauci said in an interview that he was unsurprised that Trump got COVID-19. Fauci said it was because Trump regularly flouted the use of masks "as a statement of strength." Alexander released a statement Monday afternoon praising Fauci. “Dr. Fauci is one of our country’s most distinguished public servants," said Alexander, R-Tennessee.

Climate change scientists fly more often than any other researchers, a new study has revealed. Researchers at Cardiff University found that scientists specialising in climate take around one more flight a year for work than their contemporaries. The revelation has sparked calls for environmentalists to 'look in the mirror' before preaching about reducing emissions. The study, reported in The Times, found that climate scientists take around five flights a year on average for work while other researchers took just four. Climate change professors also take around nine flights each year while the average for professors in general is eight.

[Tweets] Well, it's what certain influential Democrats want, full blown show-trials and purges, same as the communists pioneered.

Donald Trump's reelection campaign accused Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer of "encouraging assassination attempts" targeting the president on Sunday afternoon, amid escalating conflict between the two political leaders. Trump's campaign, which uses the handle "Trump War Room" on Twitter, based its allegations against Whitmer on a token with the numbers "8645" clearly visible. The token appeared behind her during an interview with NBC News host Chuck Todd on Meet the Press Sunday morning. "Governor Gretchen Whitmer displayed an '86 45' sign during her TV appearance. 86 can be shorthand for killing someone," the Trump campaign tweeted, alongside a screenshot
