Wuhan Virus Teaches That Race Exists and Is NOT A Social Construct

Dr. Anthony Fauci, Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases announced the African American community is being disproportionately affected by COVID-19 in a press conference Tuesday.

“We have a particularly difficult problem of an exacerbation of a health disparity. We’ve known literally forever, that diseases like diabetes, hypertension, obesity, and asthma are disproportionately afflicting the minority populations particularly African Americans.”

“Unfortunately when you look at the predisposing conditions, that lead to a bad outcome with coronavirus, the things that get people into ICUs, that require intubation and often lead to death, they are just those very comorbidities that are disproportionately prevalent in the African American population.”

Now, we have been being told for quite some time that “race doesn’t exist,” and, “race is a social construct.” If race is a social construct and doesn’t exist than how does the Wuhan virus know how to zero in on black folks (whoever such a group might be) more than white folks and how do we know what such a thing as a “African-American population” is? In point of fact how could we possibly even talk about such a grouping? What doesn’t exist doesn’t exist and can’t be talked about. If race doesn’t exist notions of an African-American population is not a great deal different than notions of an “eoo7yix-8iert ecvkn”population.

If race really did exist and if one race was more prone to catch the Wuhan virus than other races wouldn’t it make sense that the policy of segregation in pursuit of quarantine might be a medically wise course of action? We could have a “Minority only” hospitals and even “Minority only” water fountains, all in the name of saving the minority community from the Wuhan virus.

But as race doesn’t exist and is only a social construct than of course there is no way to give special help to minorities (whatever that is).
