Institutionalized Racism Determines Who Lives and Who Dies in New York

While recognizing racism still exists in some peoples’ hearts, most Americans believe the country is and has been headed in the right direction for many years, as evidenced by the passing of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and a slew of other laws which intend to place all peoples on the same playing field. Progressives, on the other hand, would argue the exact opposite. In their view, not only is racism alive and well, but it is still institutionalized and systemic. Movements like Black Lives Matter highlight what they believe to be the targeting of and brutality towards black people through police discrimination, societal norms, and the workplace.

For somebody like me, a person who grew up in the 80s–a time when there were no laws that inhibited any particular race from doing what they wanted to, but there were still some remnants of a world that did not treat everyone equally–I can look back and say “Hey, that wasn’t right.” For example, when a white and black couple would walk into a store or even church together, many people would’ve probably raised their eyebrows a bit. Today, thankfully, that archaic way of thinking has, for the most part, been done away with so that no one really cares who dates or marries who. Not only that, there are countless other examples I can cite showing the progress we as a society and nation have made in the past 40 years, so when I hear the cries of institutional racism being bandied about, it has always made me scratch my head. I have to admit, though, upon further inspection and looking at what has been revealed over the past week; I must say I was wrong. 

We cannot ignore the reality of what’s going on. We have to be honest about what’s transpiring right before our eyes for race relations ever to be genuinely repaired. People’s lives are literally at stake right now, and someone has to speak up.

New York⏤the state and city where our nation’s most iconic and revered statue resides. A place that should define freedom, liberty, and equality for the world to emulate. It has been ground zero for many things over the past few months, and unfortunately, none of them are good. From being first in the nation to mandate vaccination laws, New York is now first in the country to prioritize race as it relates to fighting Covid-19. To be clear, though, when I say New York, I’m talking about the government. You know, that whole institutionalized thing.  

It seems crazy to even say in 2022 that the color of one’s skin might literally mean the difference between who lives and who dies, but it’s true. This can be seen in the document recently released by the New York State Department of Health which lays out a plan on how they will distribute Covid 19 treatments, some of which are in short supply.

As one would think, allocation of these treatments, including monoclonal antibodies and the scarce antiviral pills, will be determined on an “as-needed basis,” New York says this is only part of the criteria. The other part includes “other factors that increase the risk of severe illness.” What do “other factors” refer to? Well, in their own words, one factor is being a race that is non-white, as this means you have had to withstand “longstanding systemic health and social inequities.” Specifically, the memo put out by the state of New York says,Non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity should be considered a risk factor, as longstanding systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19.” That’s right. The sins of things that happened decades and centuries ago by people who are no longer living, committed against people who are no longer living, are being cast upon a people who have committed no such injustices to a people who have received no such injustices.

Because you’re a white guy you deserve to be put on the back of the bus and if that means you die… oh well. Instead of simply saying, “where are these treatments needed most?” New York is saying, “who was treated poorly in the past and how can we help them? Whites be damned!”

While this was happening on the state level, New York City has also been doing its part to continue in its maniacal method of making race a part in handling the epidemic. As the New York Post reported, leaked emails from New York City health officials reveal how race is being used to help determine who gets Coronavirus testing resources. The Task Force selected testing sites on Racial Inclusion and Equity, a group created by Mayor de Blasio in 2020.

Continuing, in a recent “Request for Proposals,” New York’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene said, “The … DOHMH is committed to improving health outcomes for all New Yorkers by explicitly advancing racial equity and social justice. Racial equity does not mean simply treating everyone equally, but rather, allocating resources and services in such a way that explicitly addresses barriers imposed by structural racism (i.e., policies and institutional practices that perpetuate racial inequity) and White privilege.”

Reread that last sentence. You’re not crazy. They actually said “equity does not mean treating everyone equally” and that a person’s white privilege will play a role in how services and resources are being allocated. If you’re shaking your head while reading this, you’re not alone. I’m shaking my head while writing it.

If the goal for the last century and a half has been to rid the nation of racism, then the measures New York is taking seem to be doing the complete opposite. New Yorkers… I mean, certain New Yorkers are currently witnessing and experiencing government-sponsored institutionalized racism veiled by the idea that the powers that be are creating a level playing field. Leaving one group purposefully behind in an effort to bring about equity for another only furthers the distance between those who simply want to be treated the same–both black, white, and everything in between. But are we shocked to see this?

After all, “equity training,” a.k.a. Critical Race Theory, invades so much of the life of the average New Yorker these days. Once again, it appears that New York leadership, which seems to live to widen the divide between people and play the blame game, still cannot grasp that New Yorkers need not be listed in any other category than simply “New Yorkers.” Many of us hope that new leadership will bring about a much-needed change to New York.

More than 800,000 people perished in America alone; drug use, alcoholism, and suicide rates escalated; children’s social skills and educational performance plummeted, and businesses and family budgets collapsed. And following repeated public misinformation regarding the monster’s bioengineered “gain-of-function” origins and originators, lots of people increasingly wondered…

One Size Fits All is the Very Essence of Socialism

One Size Fits All is the Very Essence of Socialism

They blame it all on the unvaccinated because Socialists would rather people die a few years down the road from implanted myocardia heart disease injected by mandated vac’s into all Americans today. The pushback has caused the government to turn to bureaucratic bureaus (OSHA) to mandate that all American citizens submit to unproven one-size-fits-all vaccinations and constantly wear face coverings that are useless…

America’s Wind Turbines Increase Energy Cost and Endanger Us All

Wind is even more intermittent than you could imagine, abruptly varying its energy output. Every turbine has a range of wind speeds, usually between 30 miles per hour (mph) and 55 mph, in which it will produce its maximum rated electric output. At lower speeds, the production falls off considerably. At wind speeds above the maximum rate for a turbine, the blades…

America has an Economic Virus

Whenever the government says, it wants to “help,” watch out! The problem is going to get worse. Why? Because government is meddling where it doesn’t belong. Because government is meddling where it has no expertise. Because government meddling imposes top-down “solutions” that are not based on free-market supply and demand. It always backfires…

The Global Western Cabal End Game

The pandemic is becoming permanent, even as it ends. Why? Because we did not pass the cabal’s election laws. Had we allowed the cabal to make fraud the norm in every state, then they would have been able to throw future elections even without a pandemic. We did not pass those laws so now the pandemic is permanent…

The Light at the End of the Tunnel

At the moment, Socialists hold the reins of power in their hands, and in doing so, they have weaponized the DoJ, FBI, CIA, IRS, and Homeland Security significantly enough to change the Patriot Acts definition of who constitutes domestic terrorists. For the Democrat Party, control is essential, and seeing the light of an oncoming train, they are desperately attempting to rearrange…

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

OSHA & HHS Vaccine Mandates Oral Arguments

This case is not about whether vaccines are effective, useful, or a good idea. It’s about whether this federal executive branch agency has the power to force millions of people working for or with a Medicare or Medicaid provider to undergo an invasive, irrevocable, forced medical treatment, a COVID shot. It’s a bureaucratic power move that is unprecedented…

A Scientific Reawakening at the Lincoln Memorial

The “Defeat the Mandates” march called for an end to vaccine mandates nationwide. Dr. Peter McCullough applauded the doctors and health care workers who stood on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, and those throughout the nation that fought the good fight against medical tyranny. “We never had a full-throated endorsement from our government agencies, the CDC, the NIH, and the FDA, nor the White House task force,”…

Biden’s Forthcoming Failure in the Middle East Will Have Worldwide Implications

Since Biden has come to office, almost every nation that used to depend upon America for their security is realizing how wrong they have been and are now either arming themselves with more weapons or re-aligning with China and Russia, even if temporary. What is brewing in the Middle East – as I have been repeatedly warning – is a Nuclear confrontation because…

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

COVID Q & A with Dr. Peter McCullough #14

Can Dr. McCullough, talk more about pericarditis? Everyone mentions myocarditis, but there are never any statistics mentioned for pericarditis. In Australia, there are twice as many reports of pericarditis than myocarditis from vaccines. What are the dangers of having Covid naturally and then getting vaccinated? Wasn’t there a thought that you should not get vaccinated for 90 days after having Covid?

Hunter Biden, Paul Pelosi Jr. and A Swamp of Thieves

Hunter Biden was earning an $80,000 monthly salary from the Ukrainian energy company and why he concocted a billion-dollar deal with a Chinese investment firm, 10% of all earnings of which were destined for the coffers of the family’s mob boss, Joe Biden himself. But why stop with the Biden’s? Speaker Pelosi’s son, Paul Pelosi Jr. has been linked to at least five businesses under investigation for alleged fraud…

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

Global Failure of Public Health on Pandemic Response

PM Boris Johnson announced that his country is to move into mitigated COVID restrictions, dropping the legal requirement for face masks and COVID passports. Meanwhile, the European Union drug regulators warned frequent COVID boosters could adversely affect the immune system. While both of these developments are not declaring an end to mass vaccination, they are setting the framework to announce a…

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

The China Virus Game of Funding Cover-Up

A close examination of the newly unredacted emails reveals that none of the usual justifications for redactions, such as private information about people or threats to sources and methods, apply. All appear to have been made solely to shield Fauci and the NIH from scrutiny over its cover-up of the virus’ origins. Also involved in the obfuscation effort were Fauci’s boss, recently retired NIH Dir Dr. Francis Collins…
