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.
