  1. Lmao..

  2. Maybe it was the protests

  3. Wow always blaming other things. I see every day large gatherings of people of color with no masks. Thats not racism

  4. This is the same media that never once suggested that people could be at greater risk for getting covid while protesting. The same media that encouraged protests in fact!

    This has got so ridiculous, that it’s bewildering how people don’t realize we are literally living in a communist utopia.

    You guys are really reaching now huh? You’ve outlined that there is a disparate impact on black peoples but have zero actual evidence that it’s a product of racism… just the same tired talking points. This is why nobody trusts the media.

  7. What’s race has to do with getting sick? Media and small-minded Americans Blame everything on “systemic” racism, COVID and Trump. OMG! That’s all I heard in 2020. And I’m not even a white person.

      I mostly agree – but there are genetic diseases that are race-specific, like sickle-cell anemia, cystic fibrosis, Tay-Sachs disease, etc. How they could be called racist, though, is beyond me.

    • @The Masked Avenger How about “ What’s race has to do with infectious diseases?” Are bacteria’s, viruses partial to color of the skin?

  8. teh racismz is gonna get ya!

    Think it may have been all the crowd gathering at the protests instead of social distancing and staying safe?

  11. Some of these “news makers” should be prosecuted.

  12. yo you got any more twitter buzzwords you wanna cram into that title?

  13. This is fake news bcause he didn’t mention trump

    Correlation has nothing to do with causation. This is completely insane leftist propaganda.

  15. Look up Mockingbird Media. This is all orchestrated & False.
    Once you see the truth, you cannot unsee it.

  16. How do liberals explain racism to conservatives? They talk about how inferior minorities are.

    Who knew a virus – something that’s not even alive – could be racist? I think we all need a comprehensive list of everything in the world that’s racist so we don’t offend others.

  18. Listen carefully ever since I started trading, I have only been making losses. There came a day where I felt like I was on top of everything. It was such an amazing feeling, I had that first feeling of becoming successful in trading, but of course I got greedy and that’s when my profit went straight back to the market again. Imagine still losing that one profit which you thought is yours already. One loss led to another over frustration and feeling like I was right all the time. So for now I’ve taken a step and got a mentor who helps me in trading, having a greater focus on risk management rather than making money. He really takes the fear out of trading and makes you feel comfortable without lost in trading. I was able to increase my portfolio to $240,000 within the space of three months all thanks to Mr Jace he is a bitcoin Guru. Mr Jace has given me the opportunity to clear all reasonable doubt after a clear research about his profitable trading. His strategy is the greatest of all time. You all can reach out to him on 👇👇👇
