Previously on SBPDL — White Privilege: “An Independent Committee of Medical Experts That Advises the CDC Told Them That Frontline Workers Should Receive the [COVID] Vaccine Before Seniors Because Seniors Were Overwhelmingly White.”

Point of fact: this writer is 100 percent against the Covid-19 vaccination (if you want to get it, by all means go ahead) and believes people should be living their lives without any fear of COVID-19 and the entire nation should be opened up. Dave Portnoy is a hero for his actions to help out small businesses ravaged by the asinine shutdown and criminal charges should be filed against every elected official advocating continued shutdowns.

It brings a smile to my face seeing other people not wearing masks in defiance of the tyranny enacted by people believing our nation should shutdown because of a disease almost exclusively impacting the elderly and those with co-morbidities.

We will look back with intense animosity on those who advocated this insanity and cost people a year of their life (hurting families in the process), along with the incalculable opportunity costs gone forever because of an extreme overreaction to a virus primarily impacting those 60 years-old or greater.

But that doesn’t matter when you realize how anti-white our system and elite are in 2021. We call this white privilege in action… [Black, Latino Seniors in Virginia Get COVID-19 Vaccine Priority as White 85-Year-Olds Wait, Judicial Watch, February 23, 2021]:

In a move that is outraging senior citizens throughout Virginia, the state is shifting its COVID-19 vaccination distribution to prioritize black and Latino residents even as desperate 85-year-olds interviewed by Judicial Watch struggle to get the shot. Like several other states, Virginia is vaccinating its population in phases, with healthcare personnel and residents of long-term care facilities receiving utmost priority. With that population completed, according to the Virginia Department of Health, the second group includes a peculiar combination of frontline workers, people 65 and over, those with medical conditions, incarcerated criminals and those living in homeless shelters or “migrant labor camps.”

As if it were not bad enough that law-abiding seniors are considered as important to Virginia officials as convicts and illegal immigrants, now comes another slap in the face. In the next few weeks, the state will give preference to black and Latino residents 65 and over while much older white seniors, many in their 80s, cannot secure an appointment to get inoculated. The plan was announced a few days ago by Dr. Danny Avula, who was appointed by Governor Ralph Northam this year to be the state’s vaccine coordinator. A Richmond news report calls it the latest step taken by Virginia to bake equity into its vaccination policies. In recent weeks, the article says, roughly 10,000 vaccines were channeled specifically toward trusted clinics in neighborhoods with older black residents.

ORDER IT NOW

The news article cites statistics from a COVID-19 tracking project operated by a liberal monthly magazine. Black Virginians are dying from COVID-19 at 1.2 times the rate of white residents when adjusted for population, according to the project’s figures. Latinos are being infected at more than double the rate of whites. In October, the rate was five times higher than whites. Yet national data has revealed vast disparities between where the virus has devastated communities and where shots are given, the story claims, adding that in Virginia white residents are getting vaccinations at 2.2 times the rate of black residents. “Factors include a history of discriminatory lending practices that pushed these populations into areas with less access to health care, limited internet and a lack of transportation,” the article states. “All of that is on top of navigating a fractured health care system that’s in many ways shut them out.”

The piece makes quite a case for giving minorities preference to get the shot by selectively including stats supporting the argument. For example, the reporter cites “some experts” that have raised concern over age-based vaccine prioritization because it fails to account for lower expectancies among black and Latino communities, though it does concede that 75% of Virginia’s deaths are among those over 70. The story also refers to a Centers for Disease Control (CDC) study that says blacks lost about three years in life expectancy in 2020 while Latinos lost two and whites only eight months. In the state capital of Richmond, most COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations, and deaths are among black and Latino people with life expectancies ranging from 63 to 69 years old. More affluent and white neighborhoods have an average life expectancy between 77 and 83 years old, according to an academic study presented in the story.

A computer-savvy, 85-year-old Virginia man who has tried in vain for weeks to get vaccinated told Judicial Watch the new state order giving minorities preference is “particularly disturbing.” The man and his wife, also in her 80s, do not want to be identified because they are still trying to get the vaccine and fear criticizing the system might hurt their chances. In January the couple, residents of a suburb about 65 miles south of Richmond, signed up on the state website but lost their place after being told that the site was compromised. They have since tried signing up repeatedly with no luck. Many of their elderly friends are in the same discouraging situation, the couple said. “The governor has decided who gets the vaccine based on race/ethnicity,” said another elderly Virginian who cannot get the shot after learning about the new distribution plan in a local media report. “The governor is a disgrace,” said a Virginia native in her mid-80s.

Equity is a just a nice way of saying “white people last.”

    “White people last” is just a nice way of saying “fu€k white people”. The term “equity” is also foreshadowing what is coming soon: reparations. They are coming for whiteys money. Anybody with half a brain can see that coming. There are 2 non starters for me: gun control and reparations. When I heard politicians throwing those words around, my antenae went up, I cashed out a huge chunk of retirement, bought another gun, and the optics and ammo for it. If they’re trying to start a ci_il w_r either of those 2 would be enough for me. I’ve had enough of the bleeps blaming all their failings on me. Ill be damned if they’re getting into my wallet and taking what I’ve earned as some sort of retroactive payment for something I never did. As far as I’m concerned, when reparations become a law, white America needs to shut it down and by it I mean the country. Just refuse to goto work. Let the jigs run it for a month and watch it fall to pieces. Maybe then the government would understand who really has the power in this country.

  3. This is really going to open some eyes to the reality of europhobic discrimination. This is meant as an act of eugenics, of getting rid of some “whiteness”. This is an important step in the process of establishing Color Supremacy openly as the dominate ideology of the country. In this case it backfires because they’re better off without this experimental “vaccine” anyway probably. But the precedent is being set to withhold life saving (they believe) medication from European Americans to first give it to POC. We creep ever closer to death camps.

  4. Anyone pushing to get to the head of the line for this poison can be my guest.
    I’m amazed how many people fell for this hoax, have we ever closed up shop for the flu?
    As always, follow the money, there’s your answer.

  5. It was also used to just get rid of President Trump and his voters….Like Oprah said…”Old White people need to just die” coincidence/ I don’t think so!

    off topic…from slate
    At the helm of Salesforce is a man named Marc Benioff. He owns Time magazine. He’s been throwing his weight around politically for a while now, going to Davos, supporting various liberal causes. Some think he might eventually run for mayor of San Francisco, but he’s still strangely under the radar in some ways. A lot of people who’ve heard of Mark Zuckerberg or Jeff Bezos have never heard of Marc Benioff.

    Benioff is about 6-foot-5, a bear of a man with slicked-back hair. He wears a lot of Hawaiian shirts and peppers his speech with Hawaiian words and phrases—he’s owned an estate there for a couple of decades now, and Hawaii is where he came up with the idea to launch Salesforce. Like many a tech billionaire, Benioff hasn’t been satisfied with merely creating a successful company and getting wildly rich from it.

    benioff tried to defuse the situation by donating $250,000 to RAICES, a nonprofit that provides services to refugees and immigrant families. The group turned down the money, and then Benioff made things much worse. According to a report in the Guardian, Benioff contacted the head of RAICES “to discuss the growing opposition to his firm’s contract—and then backed out of a call at the last minute, saying he was busy with vacation activities, the emails showed. ‘I am sorry I’m actually scuba diving right now,’ Benioff wrote.

    My older brother (65) lives in S.C. and is absolutely hysterical over the virus (thanks, MSM) and desperately wants to receive the shot. For weeks now, he’s been searching for someplace to get it only to be told by every hospital and clinic that he’s contacted, “we don’t have the vaccine” or, alternately, in two cases, that he needs to drive 5 to 8 hours away from home to get it~ either to Columbia or all the way to the coast to Charleston. Even then, he’s been told there’s no guarantee he’d receive it due to availability. As he said, “I’m not driving all that G.D. way just to be told to go home!”

    Mr. Infidel, besides being hysterical, your brother’s grasp of geography is, let’s just say, unsound. Columbia is in the center of the state, so he can’t be more than 3 hours away. Anywhere in S. Carolina is well under 5 hours from anywhere else, and 8 hours takes you to Florida, Richmond, Virginia, or Nashville, Tennessee, driver’s choice.

    Anyway, since I haven’t had a comment whisked away so far, let me say that my favorite part of this post of Mr. Kersey’s was the first paragraph with that “Point of Fact” disclaimer. Thank you, Mr. Kersey! I couldn’t give a rat’s a** about the vaccine for myself. If it does mellow out some of the hysterics out there, I suppose that’s a good thing.

  23. As I am a young, healthy white male brimming with privilege,, I have made a pledge to not get the vaccine until every woman, BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, immigrant, felon, and other Oppressed American gets it. As a white man I know that my privilege alone is enough to save me from the ravages of the diseases so I am stepping aside to let those marginalized communities get the best gene-editing serum Pfizer has ever concocted. Getting my vaccine before even a single BIPOC would be the literal definition of white supremacy, and that’s the last thing I want to support.

    If you are white, especially a white male, then do your duty and refuse the vaccine. It’s the only way to achieve equity.

    It is little wonder that blacks are more hesitant than whites to get the jab. Most older ones, especially, know about the Tuskegee Syphilis Study. So, when black seniors are told they can come to the front of the line to get the shot ahead of whites, I imagine that many are saying – whoa, no thanks, I’ll wait, I don’t trust you. Their fears proved justified when 86 year-old home run champ Hank Aaron, who advocated for blacks to get the vaccine, died two weeks after getting his. Of course it was just a coincidence, right?

    I’ve read that vaccine hesitancy among blacks and Hispanics is far greater than it is among whites. I commend them for that. As always, whites are much too trusting of authority, hence millions who have never gotten sick for one day from this evolving strain of flu are begging to be guinea pigs. Is there something in our DNA which makes us so naïve?

  28. This week I watched two movies I’d never seen before, but had always wanted to see.
    The first was The French Connection. While I thought Gene Hackman’s acting was very good, I wouldn’t give the movie more than a C. Maybe I’m just desensitized about drug trafficking, though I hope that’s not the case.
    The second was Soylent Green, which was released in 1973, and featured Charlton Heston and Edward G. Robinson. This was Robinson’s final movie. He died the same year.
    Taking place in New York City in 2022, no less, there were many stark, almost eerie similarities to today.
    A filthy, overcrowded city with people crammed together sleeping in stairwells, seemingly without employment or direction, totally dependent on the government, even for base sustenance. Many wore face masks (!) and most were White.
    There seemed to be a purposeful relationship between people and refuse. For instance, when the distribution point ran out of soylent, the people rioted, in spite of being threatened that the “scoops” were on their way. The scoops were converted garbage trucks with buckets that scooped up the people and dumped them into the trucks. If some were crushed during the process, that was no problem.
    Also, when a person died they were transported along with others for “processing” in…a garbage truck.
    When the detective (Heston) was asked why he didn’t move from this bleak environment to another city, he replied, “Because they’re all the same.”
    Futuristic at the time, it certainly seems we are just about at the point where Whites are looked upon in the same manner: as refuse; as dangerous obstructionists to the new order (“Old White people just have to die.”). And it’s not a movie script.

    I let it go, occasionally hearing “schwarze” (black), and some other intelligible Deutsch from a self-hating SJW American white female, and then- to my horror (or was it disgust?)- an American sub-primate female gets on, speaking English, or Ebonics, no less.

    At that point I shut it off.

    The story of the Tuskegee Syphilis Study like the Tuskegee Airmen is wrapped up in myth and legend. There are some features about the history that are seldom mentioned because they reflect badly on the blacks. I’ll try to do a little research and post something.

    The reason blacks get the virus more than whites and Asians is almost certainly some simple genetic difference. Many health conditions have different incidences by race. Every doctor’s desk reference drug handbook will show different dosages for common drugs by race. It would be very surprising if all races had identical susceptibilities to a novel disease.

    If whites were more susceptible than blacks they would say it was because their Magic Melanin protected them. Since blacks have higher incidents an mortalities than white they say it’s racism.

  31. Except in this case, It (may)be a good thing.
    That vaccine is deadly, and it means white old people will be getting this poison last.
    The big thing here is that some number of those are elites.
    And they don’t want them to get poisoned anyways.
    I believe they will be giving this to all old non-white people, to kill them, then to all young people, do they develop diseases so they die prematurely.
    The entire point being to quicken the tempo of life, so that people die sooner, so that they cannot reap any reward from any work done, so all wealth can lie in the hands of the elites, who do not need to take the vaccine, since they call themselves bigots, or They Shalt take a saline injection in replacement of the poison that was prepared for them.

    Vitamin D is being found to play a bigger role in the severity of COVID cases. blacks, due to their darker skin, are known to be Vitamin D deficient. The deficiency rate of urban blacks is around 75%, this may be a contributing factor to them suffering more fatalities. Also, blacks have a high rate of diabetes, which has been another key indicator in COVID related deaths.

    Combining these two factors, along with the general unhealthy lifestyle of your average black: drugs, alcohol, smoking, fried foods, sugary drinks, etc… this is why they were harder hit by this disease… and pretty much every other disease as well.

    The French Connection was novel in its day for its naturalistic portrayal of police work, but it doesn’t have much else going for it.

  53. I spent about an hour researching the Tuskegee Experiment. I couldn’t find some things I was looking for, but I’m not looking anymore. This isn’t the most important issue. But is does follow some of the familiar “Hate Whitey” features seen elsewhere.

    The incident is very important in the history of medical ethics. Everyone now agrees that doctors should not deceive patients. Everyone also believes study subjects should be given the best treatment available even if it interferes with the original study design. But because the doctors who began the study were white and study subjects were all black, everyone immediately jumped to the conclusion that the bad incident – forty years without the effective drug penicillin – was white racism.

    In rural Alabama in 1932 – the middle of the Great Depression – they had a serious venereal disease problem. The Public Health Service tried to do what they could to deal with syphilis. Naturally they chose blacks. Today whites and Asians have about the same syphilis incidence rates. Blacks have rates about five times higher.

    In 1932 the only treatment was an arsenic compound that was very unpleasant to take and not effective. In effect there was no treatment. But after the initial period immediately after you are first infected when you are contagious, you enter a period where there are few symptoms. Some die from the spirochete but some spontaneously recover with no treatment.

    The first accusation against the white men in charge was that they told the poor infected black men that they would get treatment – and they didn’t. Today that would be an actionable offense but then it was common practice with patients of all races. Also there really wasn’t a treatment. The Tuskegee study was to merely watch the subjects over their life.

    The PHS was well intentioned in the study when it began. But during the war penicillin was discovered and penicillin cures syphilis. It remains the drug of choice for syphilis to this day.
    The issue was that the study subjects didn’t get penicillin. Those running the study chose to continue the format – no treatment just periodic observation exams – as before.

    There is no question that this was wrong. The study should have been terminated immediately and all the men with syphilis should have been given penicillin. But the part that is covered up is that the NAACP, the Black Physicians group and the black nurse who then ran the operation in the clinic all opposed giving the black syphilitics’ the drug and curing them. The study had become a source of employment and prestige for many local blacks. They didn’t want it changed.

    Fortunately a government doctor thought this was a clear violation of patient’s rights and medical ethics. He fought to get the drug to the black men with syphilis. He was a white doctor.

    I need to check facts (more than a single hour of reading Wikipedia) – but I can pretty much guarantee you won’t find the any mention of the black opposition to ending the study. It’s become a another horror story about evil whites and black victims.

    There is another possibility for why blacks have more susceptibility to COVID.

    https://thehill.com/policy/healthcare/other/539323-genetic-mutation-inherited-from-neanderthals-could-help-protect

    When the other races walked out of Africa 50,000 years ago the African blacks stayed home. Asians and whites gained bigger brains. They also mated with Neanderthals and picked up some immunities one of which some think protects against COVID. My genome (and yours) is probably about 2.5% Neanderthal.

    This theory sounds tentative to me. It may not be true.

    That Tuskegee Study conspiracy theory is a bunch of BS. But in any event, probably 50 million groids have been vaccinated with YT medicine (usually at YT’s expense) in the past couple of centuries and weren’t harmed.

    Thanks go out to the Daily Mail (UK) again for showing what most US news media outlets will not:

    Cannibal, 41, cut out his neighbor’s heart and COOKED it with potatoes to feed his family before stabbing his uncle and a four-year-old girl to death
    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-9294833/amp/Oklahoma-triple-murder-suspect-cut-neighbors-heart-COOKED-it.html

    The Daily Mail story provides a picture of the murdered neighbor, an attractive white woman, and it provides far more details, gruesome though they may be.

    Can you imagine a US news outlet describing the murdered (correctly) as a “cannibal”?

    At the helm of Salesforce is a man named Marc Benioff. He owns Time magazine. He’s been throwing his weight around politically for a while now, going to Davos, supporting various “liberal” [anti-White] causes.

    “Benioff was raised in a Jewish family[5][6] long established[7] in the San Francisco Bay Area.”

    You know what they say: Toxic semitism and virulent, unreasoning anti-White hatred — just two sides of the same slimy shekel.

    Sure, so-called “equity” is typically used as a dogwhistle for anti-White hatred — but even if you take the concept literally, and ignore the obvious subtext, it’s not a great idea:

    I have known several people who “supposedly” died from the Chinese virus. I say supposedly, because in my own case I watched them throw all symptoms in the top of the funnel and have it come out COVID at the bottom. When I questioned the whole procedure, they told me the test was accurate (not true) and put me in the hospital. The next day I argued with the doctor, told her to get an honest job, and left. I am considered extremely high risk for COVID due to many physical problems, yet here I am. Follow the money on COVID.

    It sounds like you live in Falls Church, although this lunacy is by no means limited to that leftist city that was once a decent and sane place to live.

    You can tell when you’re entering such a locale. Everyone, and I mean everyone, is dutifully wearing a face diaper to demonstrate their unquestioning political allegiance. I’m surprised they don’t put them on their dogs and cats as well.

    “…because seniors were overwhelmingly white.”

    They should have added that those working in low level jobs in medical facilities are overwhelmingly black. A former coworker described going to a Kaiser Permanente hospital and seeing the employees who were all enormously obese black women. They would become winded just from walking across the room. At their desks they chomped on fast food in take-out bags and the smell of french fries was heavy in the air. No wonder their health is poor. They’ve done this to themselves.

    My friend asked his doctor, a dot-indian, about this situation and she said the doctors conducted internal training classes on proper nutrition for their employees but they simply disregard it entirely.

    Negroes then were as sexually incontinent as they are now, so, like today, the have a lot of STDs.
    90% + black Macon County (Tuskegee is the county seat) had the highest infection rate in the U.S–plus they had the university there. Syphilis back when the study started was almost impossible to cure, although it often went away by itself. For those who weren’t so lucky, secondary and tertiary syphllis sets in. At that point, no medicine did any good, so I imagine that’s why several didn’t get treated. It would have done no good at that point.
