While working out today, I had an interesting thought. The African-American and Hispanic urban communities are far away the most hardest hit by COVID. The politicians who most oppose the sensible tools to control it, think face masks, tend to be right wing types with identifiable leanings or connection to racists and/or white supremacist groups. These are the same types trying to reduce minority populations in the US by cutting immigration and deporting the undocumented. The ones they cant deport, they seek to limit their access to ballot boxes.
I think we may be witnessing the first attempt at genocide in the Americas in the 21st Century.
