  6. I’m not american but doesn’t the care you receive depend on insurance
    And being offered further tests,does that depend on your general health and if you have additional health conditions
    But if people are in the same condition and financial situation then different people shouldn’t be given different advice or opportunity to health care if you can afford it
    But racism does seem to be an automatic assumption without finding out if there’s other issues or if predominantly white but poor areas are facing the same difficulties
    If there’s a clear difference then obviously that’s wrong but a lot of video’s I’ve seen now seem to be based on assumption

    they’re not offering any prescription medication for covid, flu remedies and such don’t work and in march they had far less information on it
    She said some people were offered xrays,was this in march or later or did they have other issues

    There should have been better organisation for tests but was this problem in lots of areas or only prodemantly black areas

    I didn’t understand what was meant by black people are given different prescriptions

    Edit not having local medical centres,is this an issue just for black areas or all poorer areas,same with housing

    In the uk even areas with large council house estates have a doctors surgery and that’s accross the country

  7. So white people are now blamed for the coronavirus?

  8. You sat outside for 6 hours? Versus you sitting in your government funded housing watching Maury. Okay.

      Calm down Karen.

    • Racists comments are disgusting behavior by white men! That they discriminate against minorities in America is nothing new. Opioids epidemic was brought on by discrimination by doctors who discriminated against blacks and other minorities. Causing white Americans to become drug addicts. Dying at massive rates per year. Their own hate is killing themselves.

    How can you not have doctor’s. Wtf? People want to talk about LA and all our problems, but we finally all have access to health care because of Obama. I guess California has filled the gaps other states don’t. I have lived below the over level so I can keep my insurance till I’m finished my reconstruction since cancer. Its given my the opportunity to strengthen my career skills by working for peanuts. And when I’m done, I can afford insurance when I make more money they covered California. Im so grateful. No one in this country should go without health care. I can’t believe it’s still an issue.

  20. Tested positive in early March? 🤔 They didn’t start testing in Louisville, KY until late March. It didn’t matter what color you were. Only pneumonia patients were being tested in mid March. I knew many people before April that had pneumonia, but none of them tested positive for SARS CoV-2 (the real name of the virus). I know no one personally that has tested positive for SARS CoV-2 and developed COVID-19. It’s easy to fear something, when you don’t understand it. It’s also easy to be fooled, when you don’t have the real information.
