    Personal responsibility to keep you and your family safe is the reason.

    Edit – This lady being interviewed is ridiculous.

    Consuming a plant based die, exercise and controlling your weight has nothing to do with racism.

  7. Could be vitamin D deficiency also. Harder to make vitamin D with dark skin.

    Tell that to the Navajo reservation

  10. Why are you trying to distract Canadians of all races from the real issues and concerns they have?

  12. who cares

  13. The Rona virus is also racist

    I would have bet my life that the argument was going be about racism. Of course the imbeciles won’t take responsibility for their own behavior by not paying attention to physical distancing. How many videos have we seen of them gathering for parties during the covid-19 crisis and now with the protests?

    who cares?

  17. Is she stupid???? Virus are not racist. If you have darker skin you intake less Vitamin D, which comes from sunlight. Vitamin D is also a major Vitamin in fighting COVID-19. It makes sense that it would happen.

    • Are you stupid? Viruses aren’t racist but neither are weapons. Both are used consciously and deliberately to maintaining exacerbate racial inequality. If these multisyllabic words infuriate you then you should do some reading, but you won’t because you don’t have to.

    What a joke.

  20. It’s because of increased rates of obesity and drug abuse issues.
