Many Black Americans aren’t rushing to get the COVID-19 vaccine – a long history of medical abuse suggests why


There are many reasons why Black Americans are unjustly treated in America and health is just one of many areas, another major area being Law and Order.

Nobody should be abused in any way, especially due to racial origins, but especially in America there is a long history of racial abuse and in many instances the historical instances are still occurring. In fact, many white Americans, would if they could turn back the clocks and this has only been made worse from 4 years of the Trump administration.

Even under the Biden administration changes, if any will be hard to achieve and then there is 2024, the very real possibility that Trump could return.

But it is not just in America that there is mistrust and racism, for this can and does occur in many countries, the UK being one, but, I hope, to not the extent of it is in America. But what do I know, for I am not of Black origin and may not even notice what is occurring in front of me, left alone behind me.

Nobody should have to contend with racist abuse, in fact, any form of abuse, for it is abhorrent and we should all be doing what we can to ensure abuse is not abound.

I do hope, that the mistrust can be minimised and eventually even, not occur, but this will require all of us to be vigilant.

COVID-19 is not concerned who it affects and my real wish is that the vaccine mistrust is overcome, but all the misinformation on Social Media will need to be countered, for if it is not, then there will be no chance that the COVID mutations will ever be reduced. COVID-19 will be with us for the long-term.  The only effective counter is the vaccines, for the various restrictions can only go so far and that is assuming that we are all abiding by the restrictions, which we are not, but hopefully only a minority.

Colour is only skin-deep for underneath we are no different, so colour should be no reason to discriminate for we all have an equal right to life.

Charge dropped against white woman who called police on Black bird-watcher


This says a lot about American Justice, which appears to have one law for persons who are White and another for persons who are Black.

Not only does it emerge with white and black individuals encountering each other, but in many instances how the Forces of law and Order behave.

Granted we only see through the media those that the Media wish us to see, but there does appear to be many elements in the various American Societies who wish for the clocks to be turned back to before Slavery was abolished or was meant to.

If this had been in reverse how would it have proceeded, well, I believe that the charge would not have been dropped. In fact, I was surprised that a charge was even brought, especially against the white women, for the expected would have been an incorrect charge brought against the Black bird-watcher, so this has to be seen as some progress, but far from enough.

To be Black in America is far from good for those who are Black, especially when many of the Police forces can not be trusted.

Black history is still largely ignored, 70 years after Empire Windrush reached Britain : The Conversation


The arrival of the Empire Windrush at Tilbury docks on June 22, 1948 marked a watershed moment in the recent history of immigration to Britain. The day before the ship arrived from the Caribbean, the Evening Standard sent an airplane to photograph the vessel as it approached Britain. The photo appeared on the front page under the headline: “Welcome to Britain! Evening Standard plane greets 400 sons of Empire.” But the reception of the new arrivals was far from unequivocally positive.

Now, 70 years and three to four generations later, the legacy of those who arrived on the Windrush and the ships that followed is being rightly remembered – albeit in a way which calls into question how much their presence, sacrifices and contributions are valued in Britain.

Noose Put Around Neck of Black Student in Mississippi


After all these years and the progression of civil rights within the USA, who would have thought that these acts of abuse would not still be occurring. However, Trumpism as brought racical hated back into the the open arena, for such an high profile individual to be campaigning on promoting racial aggression should in this day and age not be allowed.

Racial equality should be the agenda of the day, especially in a so called Christian environment, please promote equality and respect for each other.
