Two Pandemics

"We are in the middle of two pandemics that disproportionately affect communities of color. COVID-19 has claimed more than 100,000 American lives, and unequal access to quality medical care has contributed to the incredibly disproportionate impact of COVID-19 among traditionally underserved Black and Brown populations. The other pandemic—institutional racism—has been responsible, in one way or another, for untold fatalities for more than 400 years."
