Important numbers on vaccine hesitancy we highlighted on @NewsHour . Americans who will choose NOT to be vaccinated if one is available to them: 49% GOP men 41% Republicans 40% White non-college educated men 38% White evangelicals 37% Latino 28% White 25% Black 11% Democrats
Black and Latino or Hispanic Americans in most metro areas reside in neighborhoods that are disproportionately comprised of members of those same groups, William Frey finds.
Dec. 26, 2020: The virus has inflicted a disproportionate toll on Black, Latino and Native Americans who are twice as likely as white people to die of COVID-19, CDC data shows. The deaths of Jesse "Jay" and Cheryl Taken Alive were a major blow to the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe.
The pandemic has particularly hurt Black and Latino households, as well as younger Americans, some of whom are now going through the second major economic crisis of their adult lives.
Raising the minimum wage is not just about economic justice – it is about racial justice. Nearly half of Black and Latino workers in America make under $15 an hour. We must end starvation wages, and give 32 million Americans a raise by increasing the minimum wage to $15 an hour.
President Trump invited a group of Black and Latino Americans, communities disproportionately affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, to his speech. “To literally draw them into the White House, to a hot zone, is extraordinarily inept,” Dr. Jeremy Faust says.
Black and Latino Americans are 3x as likely to contract COVID-19 and more likely to die from it. The Biden-Harris administration is committed to controlling this virus and confronting these glaring racial health disparities.
More Black and Latino people are dying from coronavirus because air pollution is worse in their communities. That is unconscionable. It is not a radical idea that clean air and water should be the right of all Americans regardless of income and skin color.
Trump LOVES Americans. ALL Americans. Black and Latino unemployment are the lowest in history. We ALL have dreams for our children, our families. One of the best lines of the speech: "because Americans are dreamers too."~President Trump #SOTU #StateOfOurUnion #MAGA
