Equitable Vaccine Distribution A Priority For Boston's Mayor Kim Janey | Rachel Maddow | MSNBC


  1. Most excellent to see African American female leadership. My black daughter will see this mayor and be inspired.

    1. @Middle Phlanges You don’t have a black daughter. Is that your sick way of virtue signaling? Seek a psychiatrist buddy.

    2. Middle, You black daughter has a unfair chance in life, and no not because of racism but because you are teaching her!!

  2. Vaccine equity is insignificant now that the “pandemic” is over. Hello?? There is not going to be a 4th wave. Time to reopen 100% and get on with our lives. Stop living in the past.

    1. What I think will happen is we will get maybe 50% vaccinated and then everyone will go back to normal. However, this will cause a 4th wave among primarily those that didn’t get vaccinated. Up until now, many of the people that think this is all fake news, etc, have been protected from their own ignorance and reckless behavior by all the steps everyone else has been taking. Once everything goes back to normal that protection will disappear. Only now it will be exponentially worse for those people since all of the vaccinated people can still get covid. HOWEVER, it will have a significantly smaller effect on most of them… it will be treated by them more like most treated the common cold in the past. Even if you got the cold you didn’t necessarily quarantine or anything like that. If you give it to someone else then no big deal. However, it WILL be a big deal to those without the shot. In fact, it wouldn’t surprise me if this is the new right wing conspiracy theory… that vaccinated people on the left are trying to get unvaccinated people sick, etc. When in reality it is actually their own stupidity doing it.

    2. @R o With enough people vaccinated I think the number of variants will diminish greatly. However, I agree that they will still happen. I suspect we will end up having to get a covid vaccine every other year or so. I’m not a doctor though. I just play one on Youtube.

  3. I grew up in the outer suburbs of Boston when in the late 70s , our high school participated in the METCO program. I found it interesting that the black male teenagers integrated well with the whites however the black teen females didn’t. The black females stayed together and a few bullied some of the whites including myself. I think just the fact the black females segregated themselves during lunch time attracted a sense of resentment to many white students. I recall asking them if they wanted to sit with us during lunch and I was told “ no” and laughed at. I myself was physically assaulted ( thrown to the ground and kicked ) for simply glancing at one of the black students passing by me as we so often glance at our fellow classmates walking through the halls. I was physically hurt but the principle told me it wasn’t his problem. This was 1979. I never realized how bad the desegregation violence it was in Boston. In fact I never knew of any violence until watching this video. It hurts me to see what black students had to endure. Although there was no excuse for assaulting me for an innocent glance and no excuse for a principle to ignore violence against anybody, I can understand the pain and hurt my fellow black classmates had to endure just to get to our school. Evette , I forgive you and I’m sorry for what you had to endure just to get to our school 45 minutes away from your home in Boston. Congratulations to Boston’s New and first black Mayor. It’s long overdue. I can now put the “ why” I was assaulted to rest. I never knew it took violence against my fellow black classmates just to get to school.

    1. Good morning, maby they took that glance as a sign of ( what are u ppl doing here) 🤷🏾‍♀️.

    2. Not only is this very well said but it shows your humanity and I’m thankful there are FAR more people like you in our country!!

  4. Here’s wishing here good fortune in her position and I mean that she succeeds in helping her constituents and by doing so helps the whole country!

  5. B.e.S.T f’u”l’l D.a.T.i.n.G h.o.T G.i.r.L’s —L—o—V—e—S—e—X—..❤️⤵️



    在整個人類歷史上,強者,富人和具有狡猾特質的人捕食部落,氏族,城鎮,城市和鄉村中的弱者,無`’守和貧窮成員。然而,人類的生存意願迫使那些被拒絕,被剝奪或摧毀的基本需求的人們找到了一種生活方式,並繼續將其DNA融入不斷發展的人類社會。.說到食物,不要以為那些被拒絕的人只吃垃圾。相反,他們學會了在被忽視的肉類和蔬菜中尋找營養。他們學會了清潔,切塊,調味和慢燉慢燉的野菜和肉類,在食品市場上被忽略的部分家用蔬菜和肉類,並且學會了使用芳香的木煙(如山核桃,山核桃和豆科灌木 來調味食物煮的時候

  6. Let’s be clear, equity is not the same as equal. Equity implies a bias toward the maximization of something of value for the biased party.
