*Let’s keep it real.
It seems the media is temporarily replacing their normal coverage of the shootings in Chicago and New Orleans with a false narrative about African Americans dying disproportionately from COVID-19.
Even during a crisis, it’s refreshing to see consistency from CNN, Fox News, and MSNBC.
These outlets routinely use minorities as pawns to boost ratings and promote their radicalized agendas.
I’m actually impressed this time – they’ve managed to make blacks poster children for a virus that originated in China. It’s now a race issue, and once again, we’re the country’s disobedient horde of victims. Bravo!
Until this virus is contained – which experts believe could take several months – the white delegation, and its leaders, are making one thing very clear: Blacks and Mexicans need to stay inside!
The internet is riddled with recordings of niggas gathering for barbecues, “twerkathons,” and pool parties.
I imagine these videos have pissed off some old white people in high places, and now they’re desperate to get some cooperation from all the “niggas” disobeying their orders.
Our president – don’t worry, I won’t name him – even convinced the U.S. Surgeon General – who’s black and named “Jerome” – to get in front of a camera and spew garbage about African Americans being “high risk” and “more susceptible” to COVID-19.
The media picked up this storyline and ran with it this week, and now there are dozens of articles online urging blacks to stay inside.
These warnings make sense considering there’s a staggering number of African Americans grappling with diabetes, asthma, sickle cell, and a wide assortment of heart-related illnesses.
However, poor health in the black community isn’t a new phenomenon. We’ve been dying of sickness for decades, primarily because we lack affordable healthcare.
But why weren’t these urgent messages from the CDC, the government, and the surgeon general delivered last year, or the year before that, or 10 years ago?
Why are the powers that be suddenly concerned about the health and welfare of minorities? Well, if you ask me, this has nothing to do with us really. The ultimate goal for the leaders of this country is to stop the spread of COVID-19, and as long as niggas keep gathering in droves for parties on the street, flattening the corona curve will never happen.
In other words, they don’t want niggas infecting white folk. And let’s be honest – if this virus weren’t affecting white people at such a devastating level, if it were only permeating communities of color, the media wouldn’t give a fuck. The government wouldn’t either, nor would the CDC, or any other major healthcare institution.
If they really did care about African Americans, the water in Flint, Michigan would be clean right now.
If they cared, they’d put their heads together to figure out how to mitigate the relentless spread of AIDS in cities like Atlanta and New Orleans.
If they cared, they would outlaw the perpetual abortion of black children.
Also, let’s remember – health insurance is out of reach for many black “working class” families and individuals who aren’t afforded coverage by their employers.
If the government actually gave a damn about minorities, they’d make sure that waiting rooms in hospitals across black and brown communities weren’t flooded with people waiting hours to be seen by a doctor or nurse.
So again, let’s keep it real. COVID-19 may be hitting the black community harder than others “right now,” but the government’s true concern is preventing niggas from transferring their “jungle germs” to everyone else.
It’s not a genuine attempt to save black lives – they’ve already proven that’s not a real priority.
I’m not fooled.
