A co-founder of BLM in New York City says that 72% of blacks between 18 and 44 in the Big Apple are unvaccinated. Gee, I guess they don’t trust the government? She also says disenfranchising unvaccinated blacks is discrimination.
So, if you refuse to culturally appropriate mayor de Blasio’s white public health culture it is discrimination to demand proof of vaccination before being allowed access to a product or service?
Something like that, and BLM NYC is ready to riot if this sh!t don’t stop.
Or is it more about the color of the person with or without the government-approved “papers?”
It’s actually a bit confusing to me (I am white so what do I know) but,
Newsome warned: “We’re putting this city on notice, that your mandate will not be another racist social-distance practice. Black people are not going to stand by, or you will see another uprising. And that is not a threat; that is a promise. The vaccination passport is not a free passport to racism.”
Black Women’s March co-founder Kimberly Bernard stated: “We are serving notice on the mayor, on the governor, on the restaurant industry that we will not allow for you to use this pandemic, vaccination cards, and masks as another reason to be racist, to put us in prison. Because there’s enough of us in there.”
So, if I understand this correctly, a Marxist group is appropriating the liberties of a constitutional republic and then claiming that making blacks produce proof of a vaccination they do not want is racist. How do they feel when The Man makes whitey do the same thing and then refuses them service?
I could guess but then, I’m still going to agree in part with BLM.
Forcing someone to accept a medical treatment they may not want or need for whatever reason is sinister. A government forcing private businesses to deny them any prospect of a normal life (employment, shopping, dining, travel) for failing to comply is evil.
If calling it discrimination or racism is the only lens through which you can view this you have other issues that need to be addressed. But I’m not saying you’re wrong. The government (in New York) is deliberately trying to discriminate against anyone unvaccinated as a way to intimidate them into accepting a treatment they may not need or want.
Denying you public access on this basis is not racist but it is discriminatory and you could get a lot more help if you dropped the skin color and marched against the passports
de Blasio wants you trapped on the no-vaxx reservation (the American Indians must have some thoughts, here) regardless of race, color religion, sex, etc. until you agree to surrender on their terms.
But let’s not be racist about racism.
Unvaccinated jews can’t live a normal life in NYVC either. Catholics, Sikhs, Latinos, Italians, Germans, tall people, Women, Men, Transpeople, shote kids, skinny kids, kids who climb on rocks.
You’ve got your thing, and I get that, but I’ve been fighting for everyone. I may not have the brute presence of BLM in NYC, but that’s no reason not to master those resources for the good of all.
Vaccine passports are not “racism” unless only one race is required to have them. But it is discrimination, and this might offer a taste of something many could never understand otherwise. How you say you feel living in this culture or this place.
Most of the white allies who marched with BLM in the summer of 2020 were pandering little douchebags. They were there to “be seen,” but at no point could they ever understand your position. Vaccine passports may not make them part of the black experience, but the absence creates a discriminatory experience that seems arbitrary and capricious.
Given what we know, they are.
Beating up hostesses is not going to win you any support. Rioting will not either, quite the opposite. But protesting vaccine passports will get you a lot of help from many corners because they are in your corner on this issue.
Not everything is a nail, and you are not a hammer. That said, build a bridge instead of burning one down and see if that helps.
