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