Why is COVID-19 more prevalent in minority communities?
According to the New York Times, it’s not because of any
innate susceptibility, but rather because of households
that are more crowded, jobs that require more frequent
contact with others and rely on public transportation, and
poorer access to health care. While public health experts
describe these as social determinants of health, Ibram
Kendi, author of How to be an Antiracist, describes the
COVID-19 outcomes as the result of racist policies and
practices in housing, employment, health care, education,
and transportation. We will explore and analyze both
racist and antiracist ideas and policies.
