“When black people need medical care they are caught between the devil and the deep blue sea. The ferocity of anti-black racism is such that even an effort to spare one’s life can still end in death. Medical professionals are no more enlightened than anyone else and often join in meting out the harshest treatment possible for black people. <br><br>Black workers are less likely to be able to quarantine during the COVID-19 virus pandemic. Instead men and women who work in fields such as mass transit, the postal service, retail, and in health care itself are exposing themselves to the COVID-19 virus. When they do seek treatment they often receive inadequate care. Jason Hargrove was a Detroit, Michigan bus driver. Before he died from corona virus complications he posted a video on social media alerting the public to the dangers of his job.<br><br>Less than two weeks later Hargrove died from COVID-19 complications. His widow reported that he sought help at an emergency room on two occasions. The first time he was told to self quarantine and was sent home. The second time she noticed that he needed oxygen. “I said, ‘Well, what about the oxygen?’ His fingertips were blue. They said that there was no reason to do anything.” He died after his third hospital visit.”
Lots of emphasis on masks, but what about this? 😯<br>Hmmmm….
