CDC Director Calls Racism A “Serious Public Health Crisis”

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Is there a vaccine for this? Will we have to stay home and isolate? The CDC just lost it’s few remaining backers

From The Hill

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) on Thursday declared racism a “serious public health threat,” becoming the largest federal agency to do so.

“A growing body of research shows that centuries of racism in this country has had a profound and negative impact on communities of color,” CDC Director Rochelle Walensky said in a statement published on the agency’s website.

Walensky noted the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has been felt most severely in communities of color, which have experienced disproportionate case counts and deaths.

“To build a healthier America for all, we must confront the systems and policies that have resulted in the generational injustice that has given rise to racial and ethnic health inequities,” the agency said.

So, what are they going to do about it?

The declaration is part of a new agency-wide initiative called Racism and Health, which the CDC said is meant to be a hub for its research into the effects of racism on health, and efforts to achieve health equity.

The initiative is meant to go beyond studying the issue and focus on taking action.

For example, Walensky noted that the agency has new funding to address COVID-19 disparities by making investments in racial and ethnic minority communities, as well as other disproportionately affected communities around the country.

Let’s be honest, this is simply another way for Democrats to divide the nation, to create more strife, and to find more ways to control the citizens. And it’s a good way to deflect from the idiocy and anti-freedom stuff they’ll push over the next four years.

Walensky said “we must confront the systems and policies that have resulted in the generational injustice”. She forgot the phrase “from the Democratic Party”. No group has been more responsible for racism/bigotry than Democrats. They are the party of slavery, Jim Crow, segregation, community covenants that agreed to block blacks, and more. It was baked into their party platforms in the late 1800’s and early mid-1900’s. They were also very anti Asian, especially Chinese. Once the Civil Rights act passed they just corralled blacks into hoods in the Dems big cities. And try to do the same with Latinos. They like their “minorities” controlled and contained. They don’t care about the conditions, they’ll just patronize them with money and free stuff come election time.

Do Democrats care that blacks are shooting themselves at such high rates? The vast majority of shootings in NY, Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, LA, and so many more, even Seattle and Portland, are black on black. Do Dems care? No. Democrats think blacks are too dumb to get an ID, for goodness sakes. They don’t think blacks and other “people of color” can succeed without government. That’s not racist at all, right?

BTW, is racism also infrastructure?
