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?

“Best Music Videos List: Ranking Greatest Music Videos of All Time – Rolling Stone” GARBAGE

Rolling Stone released their list of the greatest music videos of all time but excluded Michael Jackson’s Thriller but… included another one of his videos? I don’t even know which one it was. I didn’t go further into the article. Because the fact that you must state that the video isn’t on the list means you know you did wrong.

The article states that “all of these picks are perfect examples of how pairing sound and vision created an entire artistic vocabulary, gave us a handful of miniature-movie masterpieces, and changed how we heard (and saw) music.” Really? But no Thriller? Really? And then they gave Beyonce’s Formation the top nod. I love Bey. Formation was awesome. But they can keep that. It’s offensive. It’s like “Well it’s ok because we put another Black there.” No it’s not ok.

They are trying to erase Michael’s musical legacy and they aren’t even being slick about it. It’s disgusting. Rolling Stone messed this one up. I didn’t even link the article. They disserve no traffic.

Corporations Owe Black Lives More Than Lip Service

Beyond corporations giving financial support to groups that are defending the lives of Black people, corporations have an obligation to work on equality in the workplace. The disparities in salaries, promotions, visibility is often overlooked because no one is overty racist.  But Black people get paid less, promoted less and are given less opportunities in the workplace.    Corporations have to dig deep to address these issues.  A hashtag will not do.
