Ibram Kendi on Blacks Dying at a Greater Rate from Covid: ‘There’s Something Wrong with Society’

‘There’s something wrong with society’


KENDI: “If the problem is COVID racial disparities, black people being 2 1/2 times more likely to die of COVID-19, we need to realize that it’s not because there’s something wrong with black people. It’s because there’s something wrong with our policies. There’s something wrong with society. There’s something wrong with that black and brown people are more likely to have to essentially be essential workers. They can’t work from home or they’re more likely live in polluted neighborhoods. They’re less likely to have access to health insurance or high-quality care. And -- and those are systemic issues that -- that need to be changed.”
