  1. On Sunday, March 14 2021, a mass domestic shooting in Indianapolis left four people dead, including one child. The Trace.

      Like the vast majority of mass shootings the perpetrator is not the correct race to make it on msnbc

      What happened? I’m in Indianapolis and I’ve heard nothing about it. I don’t watch the news much but still…

  2. States need to use the covid relief funding to open mass vaccination centers in population centers, where everyone has access. Not everyone has time to sit in a line in the middle of the day, and not everyone can get out of work that easily.

    How we gonna place blame for this on Trump when Biden got the vaccine schedule up and running?

    • Robin Teigen | March 16, 2021 at 4:18 PM | Reply

      Who said anyone was blaming trump ? Biden had to start from scratch because trump and his enablers were so incompetent!!!

    Whatever the population distribution for a state is should be the same percentage of that culture who have received the vaccine. If only 13% of the population is made up of ‘people of color’ (whatever that means as all skin has pigmentation – white, brown, black, yellow, red) then only 13% of the vaccine should be distributed to ‘people of color.’ To each his own fair share…

  7. Many of the vaccination sites are too far from the communities they’re try to reach. Again, the issue with systemic racism at its core.

  8. The black communities should be vaccinated first!! Their risk is much higher!! Geeze em!!

  9. Maybe they are smarter than you think.

  10. Do black african Americans got to wait until everybody else gets vaccinated 🤔

    We will be last. They know exactly what they’re doing.

  12. So the guy who, earlier in his political career, fought in favor of
    segregated schools. Finally gets what he wants once he became president.

    • @Ace Gkhan – Yesterday Democrats were saying Bill Burr is a Racist because he married a Black Woman, saying he is her ” Owner ” My Wife is Chinese. I have adopted two sons and their race is none of your business.

      @Ace Gkhan
      “Hi !….. I’m Joe Biden !…👈😁….

      ….and if you hate mexican children
      in cages, you ain’t black….👈😁….

      …..😳…….

  13. Falling behind might be a very good thing. People of ALL races need to use common sense regarding this “Vaccine”

  14. brilliantly said, ty both.

    ERM what we are seeing in the UK and Europe is a reluctance in the BAME community to take up vaccine offers . I totally understand it but surely more effort should be going into educating and reassuring these communities

  16. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

  17. Hahaha hahaha hahaha hahaha hahaha

    Black Officials that say “people of color” are white elected.

    Each person that voted could have gotten 1 million dollars and that would be less than 1.9 trillion

    • Constituent A | March 17, 2021 at 7:23 PM | Reply

      No it wouldn’t. If you gave 1.9 million people $1 million, you would be at $1.9 trillion. What are you going to do for the other 150 million voters, give or take? Leave those 150 million with nothing while you give a million dollars a piece to just 1.9 million people? You must have flunked math.

  20. “People of color don’t know how to get online to get in line for the vaccine” – quote from biden at cnn Town hall milwaukee. Go watch for yourself!
