We're having the wrong conversation fam, it's not just that we're disproportionately affected, look who's getting hit hardest... the old guard, Dems most loyal base, older blacks, NAACP/Civil Rights Era negros who had those good jobs and moved out to the suburbs. The respectable negros. Rep Maxine Waters' sister died in a nursing home here in St. Louis while nursing home employees are protesting for hazardous pay, sick pay and PPE after a nursing home employee continued to work after being denied paid sick leave. Maxine Waters' response? Crickets. The Democrat Party? Ditto.
