Congresswoman Claims That Reparations Could Have Slowed The Spread Of COVID

  • “There is no doubt we have been impacted, that DNA in the trajectory of slavery to today. For example, COVID. Black African Americans have gotten COVID at a rate of nearly 1.5 times higher than that of white people, or hospitalized at a rate of nearly four times higher and three times likely to die. COVID hit us very desperately,” Jackson Lee began.
  • “Reparations for African Americans could have cut COVID-19 transmission and infection rates both among blacks and the population at large,” the Texas Congresswoman continued.
  • “Reparations are curative, they’re not punishment. The analysis continued to look at data throughout the nation.”
