Why is COVID-19 impacting some races
worse than other races?
Very good question.
The disparities we've seen in COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations and deaths are not due to anyone's race.
Genetically, being Black, Latinx, First People, Native American, Asian or White does not make you more likely to get COVID-19. In fact, There is no genetic or scientific evidence that shows one race is genetically different from another.
"Races" were made up hundreds of years ago to define and separate people for power, status and wealth.
So, if race is not the culprit, what is?
