    The article highlights the disproportionate poverty suffered by black people as a result of white people's racism. Does that bother you?

    Now the virus isn't only deadly but it's racist too.
    It's Reuters.

    It bothers me that any poor people are going to get sick... are black people still getting taxed to death and if not, when did those policies stop?

    Why doesn't it bother you that one race is disproportionately affected by the disease as a result of racism? It should.

    Me thinks Reuters wants to leave the impression African Americans are being treated differently as it relates to care of those who have the virus.
