Why It’s Insulting For The MSM To Headline ‘Story’ That Blacks And Latinos Are Hit Harder Than Poor Whites By This Pandemic
By Dave Levine
You’d think that the MSM would have learned by now that casting blacks and latinos as “special victims” of the Coronavirus pandemic is insulting as it is a bald-faced lie. Except for the 50 million illegals and millions of H-1B Indian workers taking American jobs, blacks and latinos are doing pretty well in this economy–or were until, like all of us, they were thrown out of work by the lockdowns.
Instead, the media continues with the decades-old, tired meme that “minorities are the most impacted”. White folks who’ve been thrown out of work are just as devastated as blacks or latinos and there are many millions more of them. White folks who are obese and have hypertension are just as susceptible to Coronavirus as blacks and there are many millions more whites with those conditions in America than there are blacks. Black Americans make up 14% of the population.
If the MSM is referring to illegal aliens as “latinos”, there is no better time for them to be deported or forced to self-deport. However, Trump has told ICE to stand down which is de facto Amnesty. Their removal would lower crime, lower rents and most importantly lower the number of Angel Families–Americans whose spouses, children or siblings have been killed by illegals in DUI accidents.
Happy Easter everyone!
