Black People Can And Should Actively Care About Their Medical Decisions. This Includes Our Decision To Vax or Not to Vax

I was watching The Amber Ruffin Show. And I have some views.

Dear Amber,

Black people aren’t antivax.  We’re not all looking at Medical racism thinking “we’re scared of the vaccines.” 1/3 of us Black folk understand that this isn’t about the COVID. if it was about COVID, why weren’t they and aren’t they treating COVID?  There are articles in the NYT that monoclonal antibodies (MCA) were not going to the people with the highest risk.  Ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine were banned are treatments in 2020 and NOW in 2022, other countries are conducting trails. Seems like Japan thinks ivermectin is a possible treatment. Trials are going well.  

Also, in January and February of 2021, there were constant public service announcements in NYC about getting early treatment. By March, they stopped those PSAs for “GET VACCINATED.” NOW you have Vaccinated people, getting COVID, not knowing there’s EARLY EFFECTIVE Treatment and they are dying. Why? SO many people didn’t know there was early effective treatment. Those Merck pills, only 30% effective at preventing hospitalizations. The MCA antibodies worked 85% to prevent severe illness.

1. The vaccines are not stopping the spread (see the CDC website. They aren’t sure if it stops the spread. It’s been a year and they don’t know?)

2. The vaccines aren’t preventing death.

3. The vaccinated still run the risk of long COVID.

I read somewhere that omicron is the only variant in the U.S. now. 100%? How could the know that? And based on that information +read estimate) they pulled the MCAs that weren’t working against Omicron. But in every other country, Omicron was mild. Why did they pull them?  You don’t know, when someone tests positive for COVID, what variant it is. What kind of madness is this?

The amount of censorship around the issue from RESPECTED doctors and RESPECTED scientists should give EVERYONE pause. Not just Black people.  We certainly shouldn’t be championing mandates. And unlimited booster shots. This is ridiculous.

The booster shots will not stop. These governments have bought supplies for years.

So why the mandates?  This is about our freedom of choice. NOW, especially now, that we know the vaccinated get and spread COVID, we all should realize this is about body autonomy. AND you should all be asking “where’s the treatment?” EVERYDAY

How dare you? Black people get their kids vaccinated. If they don’t want any unproven drug in their bodies, why should they be forced to? No one should be forced to. And it’s probably more than a 1/3 of Black people. Don’t you have a problem with the coercion of Black people to get the vaccine by promises of fast food, money or even the unfortunate inability to feed their families if they don’t get a COVID vaccine?

You should be embarrassed Amber. What makes you qualified to advise people on their medical decisions? This segment is weird. What percentage of White people are antivax? They aren’t all Trumpers. We are not a monolith. Do better.

P.S. You may as well do a segment about the vaccine injuries.. since you’re so concerned.

America Needs To Focus On Health. We Can’t Booster Our Way Out Of A Pandemic

I was just having a conversation this morning about COVID and fat cells…. We discuss things in my house. Sue me. Many of the COVID hospitalizations are obese patients. COVID attacks fat cells according to a Stanford study that has been around for months. We actually need to focus on overall health for all health outside. Particularly, COVID does not like healthy people. Weakened immune systems can be strengthened with a proper diet and activity. We can of course talk about the affordability of eating healthy. Absolutely. Ask yourself why the government will not mandate the end of highly processed foods to protect our health. But they are willing to insist that you inject an UNPROVEN “vaccine” into your body. When 2/3 of American adults are obese or overweight, we need to reassess our priorities. We can’t booster our way out of COVID. We need to revamp our health.

Russell Brand is worth a follow on YouTube. Also join his mailing list. He posted this video a while ago discussing overall health, fat shaming and the pandemic. I watched it in its entirety today. It’s worth a watch. Or just listen. There’s really nothing to see. But there’s plenty to listen to and think about. Why are we so sure the vaccine is the only way when it’s clear that we actually are unsure as more variants appear quickly as they always do with RNA viruses?

We Are Not Our Ancestors

“WE ARE NOT OUR ANCESTORS” is disrespectful AF. WE have had almost 150 years of “freedom” and what have we done… without shackles? 40 million Black people in the U.S. and a few thousand Black protestors out in the wake of the murder of to #GeorgeFloyd. Get a grip. Don’t let them lie to you. Our ancestors were killing slave owners! Know your history. Don’t let these white people tell you that our ancestors were just singing negro spirituals waiting to be saved. Because that’s a lie. That’s them making you think that good white folk freed you. No. We were fighting before the civil war.

There was wide spread attempts to escape slavery. There were plots to kill the slave owners and the overseers. Black men and women risking life and limb to escape to “freedom.” According to brittanica.com, “Estimates of the total number of slave revolts vary according to the definition of insurrection. For the two centuries preceding the American Civil War (1861–65), one historian found documentary evidence of more than 250 uprisings or attempted uprisings involving 10 or more slaves whose aim was personal freedom.”

We have to be careful. We have to understand our past in order to move towards our future. We can’t just assume that our formerly enslaved ancestors were weak people who just prayed to a Christian God for freedom. This is historically inaccurate and does not serve us.

Constitutions can be rewritten and laws can be changed. The freedoms of Black people are, at this time, wholly dependent upon people who don’t GAF about us. Unless we fight for real change…. real freedom, it will be more of the same. We have to continue on this path of active agitation. We are not our ancestors, we have a long way to go.
