This is why America won’t beat Covid-19. People either didn’t care (or didn’t believe it existed) in the first place, or they have given up trying to beat it.
There aren’t enough people trying to stop the spread which is why every single day states are beating their previous records for new cases.
Europe has already locked out America. Before long so will have the rest of the world.
Covid-19 will be Americas undoing. And the time to stop it is quickly running out.
[I’m not saying that Covid-19 is going to kill every American. But it will kill many. The economy will be crippled for years to come. China’s upward trajectory to becoming the number 1 global superpower will only be accelerated by covid (China already has the 2nd biggest GDP in the world) and by that point, to be blunt, America is fucked.]
It’s so crazy terrifying that America is known to be a continent of so much diverse ecosystems to the point where Americans literally don’t have to leave the country in order to experience all of nature, that Americans have created the “road trip” to take time off and enjoy their big, beautiful country, but a free soul like me (light-skinned, mixed, black woman) is terrified by the thought because SUNDOWN TOWNS exist.
I wonder, do other countries have an equivalent to this? I know there’s hate groups everywhere, but are there places that specifically and intentionally ban foreigners (especially black ppl) from ever stopping there or warns them to leave by night or else they’ll get killed?
…Also, I’ve learned what a black separatist is. Apparently it’s like being hotep, but without the Africa. And if you see hotep blogs around Tumblr, then you’d know how…traditional they are.
How can it possibly be 20 years??? I’m am completely yours my love ❤️ Happy Anniversary
KANYE WANTS TO BE PRESIDENT AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH
The Intercept: The men incarcerated at Lansing Correctional Facility, a state prison in northeastern Kansas, first heard about the Covid-19 pandemic from the news or from relatives on the outside. There were no known cases in the state — but in February, a man had died of an apparent heart attack at the prison, and soon dozens of others fell ill, some severely.
Rachad Austin was counting down the days left in his four-year sentence, but as more people became ill inside the prison and as news of the virus continued to trickle in, he grew increasingly worried. He had a collapsed lung due to a gunshot wound — and sometimes he suffered from chest pains and had difficulty breathing. Dozens of people around were beginning to show symptoms, “and next thing you know, they’re passed out,” Austin told me on a recent call from prison. “It was a really scary time. … We were all wondering what was going on.”
Sherman Wright was also worried. Like some 40 percent of those incarcerated in the U.S., he had asthma and diabetes, making him particularly vulnerable to complications from Covid-19. At 56, he was also one of nearly 200,000 people over the age of 55 incarcerated in the U.S. — another factor that contributed to his vulnerability.
By the end of May, both Austin and Wright had indeed tested positive — as had nearly 900 others of the prison’s 1,700 inmates. Four incarcerated men and two guards had died, and the prison had become the 14th largest cluster of coronavirus cases in the country and the largest in Kansas.
The US prison system is just one giant crime against humanity.
