Yannow the joke about the end of the world and the New York Slimes (Motto: All the Fake News that’s fit to print) headline, World Ending, Women and Minorities Hardest Hit. It turns out that it fits for the Kung Flu but in this case it’s The Detroit News. Thanks to Quiller for the link.
Michigan’s COVID-19 cases, deaths hit blacks disproportionately
Lansing — At least 40% of those killed by the novel coronavirus in Michigan so far are black, a percentage that far exceeds the proportion of African Americans in the Detroit region and state.
See. The Kung Flu is racist!
The first statewide release of mortality by race in Michigan, among the first in the nation, suggests that the actual percentage of blacks killed could be significantly higher — the race of nearly a third killed has yet to be disclosed.
In Michigan, just 14% of the population is black. And while the coronavirus outbreak has been centered in Metro Detroit, African Americans make up less than a quarter of the six-county metropolitan area.
Michigan’s death toll climbed to 417 on Thursday and total cases topped 10,000. Hard-hit Detroit, a majority-black city, has 97 fatalities, but predominantly white Oakland County has 119 deaths.
But let’s focus on the African deaths because African lives matter or something like that.
“The numbers don’t lie,” said state Rep. Tyrone Carter, D-Detroit. “It reinforces what I am seeing in the city of Detroit.”
The statistics are alarming but not surprising, said Carter, who is black and recovering from COVID-19, the disease caused by the virus.
Yep! The Kung Flu be killing dem Africans. But why do you think that is?
Health experts have warned that African American populations would be more susceptible to the most severe cases of the disease because of the predominance of underlying health conditions in the population. However, it was not widely predicted that blacks would be more likely to contract and die in such disproportionate numbers.
Have you looked at the African population in America? Obesity is rampant. With obesity comes high blood pressure. Both of these are health issues that makes people more likely to have serious complications when infected with the Kung Flu. I remember when I was younger I was amazed at how fat our poor black people were. I guess it’s not politically correct to point this out. It’s better to say that the Kung Flu is racist.

By the way, AOC wants reparations for all of the black and brown people affected by the disease.
