This is What the Nut Jobs Want to Do To People of Color

Dr. Esther Choo, an emergency room physician who studies racism and sexism in medicine, says there should be a disproportionate representation of people of color in the COVID-19 vaccine studies, reports MarketWatch.

BioNTech,  Moderna Inc. and Pfizer Inc. have publicly said they’re pushing to enroll a more diverse group of participants in the pivotal Phase 3 trials of their coronavirus vaccine candidates. But Choo, who practices at Oregon Health & Science University in Portland, isn’t quite sure that’s good enough, according to MarketWatch.

“Balanced representation should be disproportionate representation of black and brown people, because they’re more affected by the disease,” she said. “Investors should be really asking them, what are your plans so that this is as widely disseminated as possible.”

I hasten to add that this is a vaccine for a virus that is of no significant threat to anyone but the elderly with serious health issues.

So you stick people of color?

I am sure glad the nutjobs don't want to give me an edge



  1. People Harmed by Coronavirus Vaccines Will Have Little Recourse

  2. In the Beck Akers LRC post that Target Liberty reposted there are facts about vitamin D and C-19. “People of (darker) color” need more UVB rays to strike their skin to produce vitamin D than lighter skinned people. This is probably the biggest reason darker skinned people are having more difficulty with C-19.

    As the article indicates people of color have been shown to otherwise have less healthy life styles. But Market Watch doesn’t report Dr. Choo talking about healthy life styles that could eliminate the need for vaccines for C-19. Choo and MW are doing more harm than good with this article.

  3. Given the risks around vaccines in general, and rushed vaccines in particular, how is this different from the eugenics thesis of the early 20th century?

    1. It's just the same. Good ole' eugenics has always been a darling of American Left.

  4. Margaret Sanger's dream will come true:

    "We don’t want the word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population..."
    -- Letter to Dr. Clarence J. Gamble, December 10, 1939, p. 2

  5. Stuff I found in 7 seconds using Google back in March. I live in the same county where Detroit is, Wayne County, and the newspapers suddenly noted that an unusually large number of Covid-19 deaths were of black people. So I searched for "black people vitamin D" I found this:

    Vitamin D insufficiency is more prevalent among African Americans (blacks) than other Americans and, in North America, most young, healthy blacks do not achieve optimal 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] concentrations at any time of year. This is primarily due to the fact that pigmentation reduces vitamin D production in the skin. Also, from about puberty and onward, median vitamin D intakes of American blacks are below recommended intakes in every age group, with or without the inclusion of vitamin D from supplements.

    Furthermore, it is becoming increasingly apparent that vitamin D protects against other chronic conditions, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and some cancers, all of which are as prevalent or more prevalent among blacks than whites. Clinicians and educators should be encouraged to promote improved vitamin D status among blacks (and others) because of the low risk and low cost of vitamin D supplementation and its potentially broad health benefits.

  6. I've noted for decades that the endless cloudiness of a Michigan winter results in a lack of sunshine and vitamin D production leading to respiratory illness in myself and almost everyone else. In early April, I found this in about 7 seconds:

    We show that the overrepresentation of African Americans among COVID-19 deaths shows a significant negative correlation with mean solar irradiance, with a 20% decrease in Global Horizontal Irradiance leading to a 76% increase in the overrepresentation of African Americans amongst COVID-19 deaths. We then show that in Michigan, one of the US states with the lowest irradiance in early April, the % of each county’s population that is black, more than its median income, median age or % of the population above 65 years old, predicts COVID-19 morbidity and mortality rates. These results suggest a susceptibility linked to low irradiance may play a large role in African American vulnerability to COVID-19, and that black populations in (darker) locations with lower irradiance may benefit from sunlight exposure during the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The local NBC station deleted several comments I made asking why they were not publicizing those studies for the benefit of black people. In June, Whitmer determined that the excess deaths among black people were caused by racism in the medical field and ordered them all to take special classes to reduce their racism. There has still been no announcement for black people to get out in the sun and to take supplements.

    1. But government science is clear: Racism is the reason for the higher Covid infection and death rates among blacks.
