- ARE BLACKS THE ONES MOST HIT BY COVID?
“The Coronavirus is also racist: it has led to racial disparities between whites and blacks.” The accusation arrives from prestigious scientific reviews like the New England Medical Journal and The Lancet, according to which there is a need to speak of structural racism because the virus has produced racial disparities that have struck ethnic minorities. But this is ideology rather than racism. In reality, what is involved is the social factor that concerns economic conditions, the level of education, and the possibility of having access to healthcare. If we take a state with a high concentration of African-Americans like Louisiana as a model, the data is obvious. In fact, it is enough to go to other countries like Italy to discover that racism has nothing to do with it.
