The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announcement this week that unvaccinated people do not have to wear masks is wildly irresponsible. The U.S. continues to put the life of Black, Latino, Filipino-Americans, and other marginalized communities at risk for the sole purpose of serving white hegemony.
While vaccinated, people have a lower chance of spreading the virus, but how do we know who is vaccinated? How are we supposed to trust that the person without a mask has taken the vaccine? We don’t know any of these things. We know for sure that 74,222,958 of the people who voted for Trump are white supremacists. The reason we know that is because Trump did not make the economy better nor more efficient, but he did disproportionately kill a lot of African American and Brown people.
This action by the CDC is to appeal to the exact same white racists who felt a few Black people dying to dampen the Democratic voter turnout would be worth it, even if their racist grandfathers died if Trump could win.
Most troubling of all, perhaps, was a sentiment the expert said a member of Kushner’s team expressed: that because the virus had hit blue states hardest, a national plan was unnecessary and would not make sense politically. “The political folks believed that because it was going to be relegated to Democratic states, that they could blame those governors, and that would be an effective political strategy.”Vanity Fair
The Democratic Party barely won the Presidential Election with the “just focus on white racists” and the interest of corporate interest strategy. If it weren’t for dedicated grassroots organizers, unrepentant progressives & Bernie supporters, and unheralded stalwart and susceptible Black nanas, who placed their lives on the line in a pandemic, the Democrats would have lost.
The DNC centrists who are currently kissing Liz Cheney’s ass spent billions on racist white people. To what end?
Even their precious Liz Cheney voted no on the COVID-19 relief package.
Catering to racists did not get racists to vote for reason. Catering to racists did not get racists to accept the election results. Catering to racists will not encourage the racists to get a vaccine or be honest about their vaccine status.
These white supremacists are malevolent and malicious. They have no honor they are willing to share with Black people or people they feel are allying with Black people. They believe that Black people are not human beings. To them Black people voting is against the natural order and anyone who helps Black people vote or have any rights at all are against natural order, so they feel —to hell with them too.
They still don’t like Yankees, from the far left to the neoliberals, you continue to be hesitant to embrace this genuine concept. It is dangerous for all of us that you fail to accept and understand this truth. You can never reason with white racists whose ideas are rooted in the Confederacy and mudsill. They are all over the country, not just the South. Once a person embraces and is evangelized with this particular brand of white supremacist philosophy, they do not come back.
After everything Brown, Black, and Asian Pacific Islander communities have been through, the CDC continues to cater to racists. The Democratic Party continues to cater to racists.
CDC data stating that Black and Native Americans had a 4.5 times hospitalization rate and that Latinos had a 3.5 times hospitalization of white people after contracting COVID-19.Ending the mask mandate will harm Latinos and Black people
It is obvious the only reason the CDC has lifted the mask mandates is to convince freedom-loving white supremacists to get vaccinated.
They are not getting vaccinated, and we’re going to start this cycle again of LatinX, Black, and Pacific Islanders dying, no being murdered by policy.
The economy is not ready to be open. The mask mandate should be used as an incentive to get people to take the vaccine. The requirement cannot be personal. It must be a community effort. It must be a national standard set and left in place until people are vaccinated at a number that shows that we have herd immunity in all states, and the variants of COVID-19 can be observed. Then we should all get a break. There is no reason we can’t wait until 2022 to open up.
Killing us for the economy will not help in the midterms, and it will open the door for a more efficient white supremacist to run and win in 2024.
