Sciencey: Fauci Claims COVID Exposed Raaaaacism In Society

Does this apply in other 1st World nations around the world where “People Of Color” had higher contagion and death rates? Or, is this really about Virtue Signalining to mushy headed college kids?

Dr Fauci says COVID has exposed the ‘undeniable effects of racism’ and shone ‘a bright light on our own society’s failings’ after the virus disproportionally killed people of color

Dr. Anthony Fauci has said the COVID-19 pandemic exposed the ‘undeniable effects of racism’ across the United States.

The nation’s top infectious disease expert said: ‘COVID-19 has shown a bright light on our own society´s failings’ after the virus disproportionally killed people of color.’

Fauci was speaking during a graduation ceremony for Emory University Sunday, when he said that ‘the undeniable effects of racism’ have led to unacceptable health disparities that especially hurt African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans.

Speaking by webcast from Washington, Fauci told the graduates in Atlanta that many members of minority groups work in essential jobs where they might be exposed to the coronavirus.

He also said they are more likely to become infected if exposed because of medical conditions such as hypertension, chronic lung disease, diabetes or obesity.

‘Now, very few of these comorbidities have racial determinants,’ Fauci said.

‘Almost all relate to the social determinants of health dating back to disadvantageous conditions that some people of color find themselves in from birth regarding the availability of an adequate diet, access to health care and the undeniable effects of racism in our society.’

There are lots of white people who have the same issues in being poor and such. How is this racism? Or, could he be noting how blacks are disadvantaged and kept down on the “plantation” in Democratic Party run cities? Does he have scientific data that proves this? Could factors such as blacks having much lower levels of vitamin D make a difference? Could it be that the Wuhan Virus is targeting blacks and Latinos more than any other group?

Data shows that COVID has disproportionally hospitalized and killed people of color.

The CDC states: ‘The COVID-19 pandemic has brought social and racial injustice and inequity to the forefront of public health.

‘It has highlighted that health equity is still not a reality as COVID-19 has unequally affected many racial and ethnic minority groups, putting them more at risk of getting sick and dying from COVID-19.’

Figures from Emory as of Saturday show that for every 100,000 people, 114 white people have died; that’s compared to 127 African American, 118 Hispanic and 139 American Native.

Fauci said correcting societal wrongs will take a commitment of decades, and he urged the graduates to be part of the solution.

Instead of Fauci and the CDC investigating why there is such a difference, they’re just going to blame raaaaacism. Blacks, Pakistanis, and Bangladeshis are much more likely to die in England than white people. The Office of National Statistics in the UK yammered about the same as Fauci, but, has a disclaimer

The risk of Covid-19 death for people from Chinese and mixed ethnic groups was found to be similar to that for white people.

“These results show that the difference between ethnic groups in Covid-19 mortality is partly a result of socio-economic disadvantage and other circumstances, but a remaining part of the difference has not yet been explained,” the ONS said.

There are certainly differences in socio-economics, but, it’s that other part, the science part, which Fauci ignored. Now, that last excerpt is from the UK Guardian, which is a year old, so, you can see how they like to make a narrative even as the virus was raging. They tried to say that things like blacks and Asians being more likely to have diabetes and cardiovascular disease didn’t play a part, but, no one has seemed to follow up with that bit of science on comorbidities. But, hey, narratives matter more than doing the science these days. If Fauci really wants to blame someone, he should blame China for creating the virus that kills more POC.

    It isn’t “racism”, it’s obesity.

    According to the CDC:

    “The risk for hospitalizations, ICU admissions and deaths was lowest among individuals with BMIs under 25. The risk of severe illness sharply increased, however, as BMIs rose, particularly among people 65 and older.”

    Among American Black adults, nearly 48 percent are clinically obese (including 37.1 percent of men and 56.6 percent of women, compared to 32.6 percent of American Whites (including 32.4 percent of men and 32.8 percent of women).

    Over 60% of all American Hispanic populations are either overweight or obese. Of the 60% that are overweight, more than half, 52%, are obese.

      Calling blacks and Hispanics obese is White supremacy and racist. It’s White privilege that makes us thinner. Ask any CRT student.

    I can assure you that COVID numbers do not reflect racism in medical care. The people who faired worse from COVID generally had characteristics that would have established the diagnosis of Syndrome X. That is metabolic inflammation. This is the same issue that causes heart disease. Plus, many of the blacks in my area flatly refused to get immunization when offered, despite the fact that it was free and readily available in their neighborhoods. On my street there are several black families, they have not gotten the jab whereas that white counter parts have. This is an area of affluence and all factors are equal except personal decision making. The real reason for the increased number of deaths from this disease in the US is the policy of the CDC and limiting the ability of doctors to treat the illness in a timely fashion. Blame Fauci and group.
