Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is demanding the racial data of those contracting the novel coronavirus, contending that it is “critical to ensuring an equitable and just response to this crisis across the board.” While the virus appears to be no respecter of persons, infecting more than one million people globally, Warren believes it is “critical” to have racial data to properly respond to the pandemic. “Our health care system is rife with racial disparities. Racial data on coronavirus will be critical to ensuring an equitable and just response to this crisis across the board,” she wrote in a tweet, referencing an article from the Atlantic. “But we don’t have that data—yet,” she added: Several people dismissed Warren’s plea. “OMG do we really care what color the person was who died? We are all Americans,” one user wrote. “Really? Even a global pandemic has to be about race?” another asked. “So the virus discriminates??” another inquired. “The coronavirus is infecting and killing Americans of all races. But there’s little public data on whether the virus is having a disproportionate impact on some communities,” Ibram X. Kendi, director of the Antiracist Research and Policy Center at American University, wrote in the Atlantic piece Warren touted. Kendi, in the piece, lamented the lack of racial data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) website, as well as the Johns Hopkins University database. “Few states, municipalities, or private labs are releasing their data by race,” Kendi wrote, citing data from the Illinois Department of Public Health, which provides a bit of racial-based data:
As we often say here at The Daily Buzz… When Democrat politicians have nothing, they go back to their playbook, and right at the top is race. In this case, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who misses being the center of the universe, is looking for a way to somehow inject herself into this crisis. So, she seized on this race-baiting, racial agenda driven idiot Ibram X. Kendi’s (he’s black, and changed his last name from Rogers to Kendi, a Kenyan name) whining about the fact that the CDC doesn’t have much in the way of racial data as it relates to the Wuhan virus. Probably, they’re too busy trying to execute the President’s directive to find a cure for the damn thing, and don’t have time for such irrelevant nonsense. The virus doesn’t discriminate. It doesn’t care if you’re white or black or brown. It doesn’t care if you’re male or female. The only demographic it seems to be more prevalent in is the elderly and those with medical conditions, which of course makes sense. That’s it! But, in Sen. Warren’s mind, there MUST be some racial angle she can exploit for her own self-serving political agenda. What a nauseating bitch. Thank God she’ll never be President.
