I can’t decide what’s more pathetic: That Black community leaders are turning the COVID vaccine into a white supremacist conspiracy issue, or that the MMMs are taking them seriously.
Officials are worried about widespread “vaccine hesitancy” among the Black and Latino communities. Up to 35% of folks in either community say they don’t trust the government and don’t want to be vaccinated.
Now I wonder why that is? Could it be that Louis “Vial of Death” Farrakhan’s been telling everyone the COVID vaccine is poison?
Oh, and with Facebook and Twitter cracking down on misinformation, did they do anything to stop Farrakhan? Don’t make me laugh.
Could be that the Democrats and MMMs openly encouraging BLM riots all last year, reminding them that the violence and looting and arson were all more than justified since the US has been trying to murder them all since 1619?
And it certainly can’t be that The Usual MMMs Culprits have spent the last year proclaiming that the white supremacist Trump administration deliberately mismanaged the pandemic in an attempt to exterminate people of color, can it?
Nah. We just don’t know why they don’t trust their betters when we encourage them to get vaccinated. It’s a mystery.
Anyway, so now we’ve got community leaders in LA and elsewhere complaining about their communities getting the “bad” vaccine vs. the “good” vaccine (the “good” vaccine being the two-dose Pfizer- or Moderna-brand vaccine, while the “bad” vaccine is the single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine). The contention seems to be that if the Johnson & Johnson vaccine takes half as many injections, it’s only half as effective. Never mind that the CDC encourages everyone to take advantage of whichever brand they can ASAP, the only difference being that the “bad” vaccine is more convenient.
They’re not actually getting the “bad” vaccine, mind you—they’re just angry that they might get it.
According to LA Times:
“That they are going to put Johnson & Johnson in our communities really feels like a slap in the face,” said Corey Matthews, chief operating officer of Community Coalition. “It just doesn’t feel like it is the best shot. It feels like a second-class shot.”
And government officials are just making it worse (surprise!) by insisting that
A. The vaccines are both just as effective; one is not better than the other, and
B. They totally pinky promise they won’t give any Black or Latino communities the “bad” vaccine.
And to top off this perfect storm of a dog turd sundae, LA Times decided the best way to help quell the local communities’ fears is to help community leaders connect with the medical professionals arranging for the vaccinations and…
Just kidding! LA Times is instead broadcasting their their communities’ paranoia nationwide so it can help scare the daylights out of other inner-city communities all over the country.
When the hell did we turn into a nation of psychotic crybabies?
