From the newspaper of record comes concern that older, affluent whites will try and elbow their way to the front of the vaccine line, pushing non-whites to the back of the proverbial bus yet again:

Marc Lipsitch, an infectious-disease epidemiologist at Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, argued that teachers should not be included as essential workers, if a central goal of the committee is to reduce health inequities.

“Teachers have middle-class salaries, are very often white, and they have college degrees,” he said.

“When you talk about disproportionate impact and you’re concerned about people getting back into the labor force, many are mothers, and they will have a harder time if their children don’t have a reliable place to go,” [Elise Gould] said. “And if you think generally about people who have jobs where they can’t telework, they are disproportionately Black and brown. They’ll have more of a challenge when child care is an issue.”

Harald Schmidt, an expert in ethics and health policy at the University of Pennsylvania, said that it is reasonable to put essential workers ahead of older adults, given their risks, and that they are disproportionately minorities. “Older populations are whiter,” Dr. Schmidt said. “Society is structured in a way that enables them to live longer. Instead of giving additional health benefits to those who already had more of them, we can start to level the playing field a bit.”

Hey, Lipsitch, Gould, and Schmidt are the names the NYT provided, okay? What is it like, seeing every innocent coincidence as a conspiracy? Sheesh.

Anyway, despite what the very privileged concern trolls in the corporate media say, the biggest reason people of color will be underrepresented among early vaccine recipients is because they don’t want to take it:

Though we lack access to more detailed crosstabs, it’s reasonable to deduce that educated, older, wealthy white Democrats–the very people so concerned people like themselves will push their way to the front of the line–are the ones most eager to push their way to the front of the line.

  1. If it wasn’t for double standards, libtards would have no standards at all.

  2. If Covid is a hoax why should whites care if they’re at the back of the line?

    I don't think COVID is a hoax, but I think the ensuing PanicFest has been a scam. So, I'm not even IN the line, Jtgw. You can have my spot though, if you mash [Agree] ...

    .

    ... really soon. I mean, right now, or I swear I'll give my spot to someone else. Act now, or be forever behind a face diaper.

    That nurse was just buckling under all that white privilege. Had nothing to do with the vaccine.

  4. How difficult can it be pushing your way to the front of the line when everyone has to stand six feet apart?

    Now, those that have been wearing masks 24/7 my have symptoms of COPD by the time they get to the front of the line. But, that’s to be expected when you’ve been rebreathing your own exhaled CO2 ever since being a Maskhole became virtuous back in March.

    I suspect it’s all a device to paint the picture that, “a vaccine”, any vaccine, especially the COVID vaccine is in short supply and that we should all be clamoring and jostling to get the jab.

    What they really need are stadium barkers shouting: Get yer jab here, COVID vaccination jabs here!

    Heh.

    How does that work when the CO2 level in your blood triggers the breathing response???

    Whatever. Enjoy the vaccine, POCs.

  6. So, A.E. from your bar graph and your last paragraph, one could deduce that everyone should be happy about this issue then. Funny, people don’t seem happy…

    .

    … oh, I can’t tell for sure with those stupid face diapers on them.

  8. As I mentioned at Steve Sailer’s blog, I like the plan, because it puts me at the back of the line:

    I am a white, male, non-essential worker, under 65, no health problems, with easy access to excellent health care.

    Therefore, I am at the very back of the line for any vaccine, and you know what? I am very happy! I have little or no desire to get vaccinated with something that was rushed into existence by a globalist, corporate/government/military oligarchy and then pushed on me by the mainstream media and Steve Sailer.

    The vaccines may end up being perfectly fine, and I looove vacines, okay? But I am happy to be the lowest priority for this one, because it is — at best — ostensibly a response to one corona virus, SARS-CoV-2, that would kill only a small multiple more than viruses in any other year — no matter what anyone does!

  9. anon[320] • Disclaimer says:

    It’s probably just an industry-scripted attempt to make vaccination into a positional good with ’60s-vintage “be the first on your block!” sloganeering.

    One internist with a sizable practice wrote that the only demographic that really accepts the vaccine is Rachel Maddow viewers. That means older and susceptible to MSNBC’s two-minutes-hate indoctrination methods (that is, easy to manipulate, maybe due to age-related disinhibition or cognitive deficits.)

    Those people weren't injected with syphilis. They already had it at late stages, beyond the point where current methods of treatment would've been of any use to them.

  12. Hey, Lipsitch, Gould, and Schmidt are the names the NYT provided, okay? What is it like, seeing every innocent coincidence as a conspiracy?

    One of those names is not like the others. It is the German equivalent of Smith, indicating a past in one of the trades in Mitteleuropa. You might recall the argument from “How the Jews got their smarts” about Jews being forbidden to be either farmers or tradesmen. Thus, moneylending, a field where intelligence led to success leading to more children.

    That said, it does not exclude persons of the Book who do not recognize Jesus as a prophet. I know a few.

  13. Speaking of virtue signalling, here is a hilarious photo from media of ‘London Mayor Sadiq Khan getting his covid vaccination’, which in close-up shows that the plastic cap is still on the needle and thus that the ‘jab’ is fake

    Fuelling a widespread opinion that elites are NOT getting vaccinated but only pretending to do so for the rubes, elites joining the 30-40% of health care professionals in many places who say they won’t get the jab either

    After the fakery in the Khan photo was highlighted, the spin became that Mayor Khan ‘got the real vaccine jab right afterwards’ LOL … so the ‘conspiracy talk’ should be regarded as ‘debunked’ HA

    With UK rules for vaccine jabbing now requiring a ‘resuscitation centre’ on site for when people collapse; a few dead during testing; vaccine recipients coming down with face-disfiguring Bell’s Palsy; the unknown ‘genetic engineering’ consequences of the first mass mRNA vaccine; and previous WHO ‘vaccines’ having been used to covertly induce abortions and infertility in as many as 130 million women as Larry Romanoff as described here on Unz … not surprising Khan opted for the ‘showtime’ version

    Lie, you can't do ‘genetic engineering’ with mRNA unless you include a couple of enzymes to go from it to DNA, and then integrate the latter into a cell's DNA, like HIV. What these vaccines do is a very limited and precise simulation of the wild type virus, and that gets the cells killed anyway by the immune system, stop it at the source and all that.

    But thanks for telling us about this bit of vaccine theater, the US isn't the only country with a ruling trash.
