Blacks Americans are fighting against two enemies yet intertwined this week: institutionalized racism and a pandemic that disproportionately infected and kill them. The protests, cities from coast to coast in recent days have been rocked in the immediate sense, it sparked the murder of George Floyd, an unarmed black man by Minneapolis police. And police brutality was the central theme of the demonstrations. But the protests are also fueled by the fact that the black communities of the deadly pathogen is working its way across America have been devastated. While the second black to the US Census Bureau make up only about 13% of the US population, they represent 22% of the 19 deaths so far COVID-white after COVID monitoring project (People that 77% of the population accounts only 47% of the deceased) of the United States. The differences are still strong account for the majority of the population in some states and cities where black people. In Mississippi, blacks account for 38% of the population but accounted for 51% of deaths. In Louisiana, the ratio of 32/53%. And Washington, there is a staggering 45/75%. But the data on COVID-19 and the races are incomplete, which means that we can not yet be sure how unequal the outbreak was real. “First, there really is no national system for the collection of this data,” says TIME managing editor Elijah Wolfson. “It can be anything on the basis of health authorities, it means inconsistency, but more importantly, there was no national mandate, this data or frames to pick up for it.” Forty-six states and Washington, DC data of race relations COVID- 19 confirmed cases, while only 41 race reports for deaths related to the virus. But given the lack of appropriate examination and the fact that many cases are not diagnosed or reported wrong to go, the numbers are inaccurate and probably underestimated how strong were racial differences. In addition, some Member States there are no race data for reporting cases crown all-inclusive of Louisiana, home to the third largest black population of the United States. But with people of color for a colossal number of 19 in 34 states COVID-dead, then it is a signal that can not be ignored. There is no medical evidence that COVID 19 non-whites differently whites effect on the biological level. Rather, it seems that the virus uses inequalities and prejudices existing in the American health care system, American blacks have less access to health care than whites tend, for example, and were hurt mainly by the crown induced economic crisis, many with no income constant leave or health insurance. To these problems, we must at least good data for the address to intelligently distribute the resources and increase access and accountability, says Wolfson. Unfortunately, there is a chance that the protests might lead to seep through the communities themselves the virus even deeper, was more brutally vandalized. In the immediate visualization of these weeks protesters there is a risk of arrest or violence at the hands of agents of the police or other forces. By congregating in large groups in the midst of the pandemic, but also increase the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19 But for many American blacks and their allies, the risk is passed to remain silent for the cost of the continued oppression face.
