#3 An Indigenous community in New Mexico lacks adequate health care as the death toll mounts

Ah, but they have the federally operated Indian Heathcare Service. Its the wonderful one payer (or non- payer) government healthcare you so want. It's what you are going to get with socialism. BTW, those Navajo aka indigenous community surround the Hopi reservation. Seems the Hopi are not hit as hard as their neighbors. Wonder why the difference? /rhet question cause the finger pointers don't want to address the real reasons.

#4 or it could be vitamin D deficiency in POC

btw, there are about 30% more male deaths than female deaths from Covid19 - is that because systemic sexism against men or is it because of gender difference in diabetes

#5 ^If you were to check, which nobody will, you'd find that it is due - principally - to compliance with masking/social distancing rules.

#13 Frank G lives in California, 746. As I recall, and I may be wrong about this too, g(r)omgoru did research at Los Alamos at one point.

Finally, inner city POC (and also inner city people of pallor and ultra-Orthodox Jews, so it’s either — or a combination of — poverty and dense populations) often appear in Covid-period videos displaying poor public mask wearing and social distancing, increasing their potential exposure to the disease. Poverty and dense populations have been known since Roman times to increase the odds of catching any transmissible disease, which is why the rich flee to their country homes in times of plague.

So no, it is not coincidence, but that does not mean malign American government design. USA Today is full of pandering idiots.

I even bought staff on the reservation: tax free smokes and, once, a two necked water jug - a souvenir for my mom (it said Made in Hong Kong on the bottom).

#16 Just to be clear the USA does NOT own Racism.
It has been historically documented being worldwide for over 5,000++ years. Since The USA is only about 245 years old, it is an issue brought in from Europe and Asian and areas.

In fact Out-right slavery is still practiced in Africa and the Middle East. Various forms of are practiced in Asian countries and China.

Now to stir the pot.
Is it racism to acknowledge certain races have different abilities and disabilities or Physical, mental, aggressiveness, passiveness, and longevity vs. other groups?

BTW: Before someone grabs a branding iron...
I am mixed race, married to a mixed race wife, into an family composed of other races including: European White, Asian, black, Tribal Caribbean, Indian, Polynesian, Arabic,and etc.

#17 Champlain documented quite clearly that the Native Americans hated each other plenty fierce before any European hoisted sail westward.

Nope - I see it every single day here in Quincy - Asian population's about 15% of the total (approx. 100K).

#25 As far as I can tell (by outbreaks in San Diego) the main issue seems to be living with lots of people in the same house combined with willingness to get to a hospital when you show signs.

Combine that with Hospitals willingness to use treatments suggested by Trump (Hydrochloroquine for example) or not may also be a huge factor in some of the bluest areas.
