    There are large protests going in several cities right now concerning Tyre Nichols.

    Here are Twitter's trending topics:



    White America: don't use violence when protesting.

    Also White America: you will be completely ignored and nothing will ever change unless you use violence when protesting.

    Malcolm was right.

    Yeah, leave it. Freudian slip.

    It could be genetic like sickle-cell, but unless there's compelling evidence I'm going to go with the old American stand-by: murder by laissez faire.
    Just looking at statewide obesity, poverty rate, there is almost zero correlation. But if you look at Gini vs cases and deaths, there's a much stronger relationship.

    So, I haven't seen this thread before, but NYT has an interesting story about how black people are getting HAMMERED by Covid in NY, NOLA, Detroit, Milwaukee, and Chicago - roughly 25% of population, and 70% of Covid cases.
    I'm just asking the questions:
    Do black people more commonly have the ACE2 gene alternate (not sure if that's anywhere near the correct way to put it) which makes people more susceptible?
    Do black people have higher rates of obesity and asthma?
    Do black people have higher poverty rates that push them into mass transit and crowded housing?
    Are black people more likely to work in jobs (housekeeping, fast food, gas stations, etc) which expose them to Covid? What comes to mind is that I'm pretty sure the dude tweeting from his corona-yacht in "isolation" in the Caribbean was a white guy.
