We Demand Reparations & 100% Equity

We, the African-American Black Man and Black Woman are the people with the lived, painful experiences expressed on the pages of most major and minor news media every day, and yes, it hurts. The lived experiences that have been dropped done on our souls were not of our choosing.

Collectively, Black People continue to live in an America rapped with the ropes of what the honorable Dr. Joy Degruy refer to as ” Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome,” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGjSday7f_8) and again, it hurts.

To understand just a piece of Black People’s pain, please listen to Coach Doc Rivers’ statement, “we love America but America doesn’t love us back.” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3pHYsVtoEI).

When Black People want to give themselves uplifting, we often say, “We are still here (not murdered), or We are still standing, (able to stand on our own two feet;”) however, we are no longer willing for the bar to be set that low. It is 2021, and if not now, when will Black people be respected for 100% of our Womanhood and Manhood? 100% equity. Now is that time. Thank You. More To Come

Message for Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, and Sen. Mark Kelly

I have a message for Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, and Sen. Mark Kelly of Arizona. We understand that you all may face substantial challenges in your re-election bid in 2022; however, significant funding for reopening schools, necessary aid to save small businesses, and the 1,400 relief checks for families devastated by the pandemic must come first.

What you need to know is, we expect you to stand firm with President Job Biden to provide the American people with the recovery funds required for survival during these multiple pandemics facing this nation. If you support the people, the people will support you.

Bipartisan action is a good goal; however, we must look at the recent U.S. political history to guide us as the nation moves forward with the new Congress. The American people are facing crises of immense proportions. We have to work with those who are ready to address these unrelenting issues right now. I agree with the Republican Senators that ensuring that the stimulus checks go to those most in need is a good compromise.

When President Biden was a Senator, he was known as a deal maker. He could bring Democrats and Republicans to unanimity on many important matters facing the country. Today, America is experiencing a partisan divide that is most intransigent in modern history. Moreover, they know that America is experiencing an unprecedented set of crises.

The COVID-19, aka the Coronavirus, continues to pose a mammoth threat to the country. Additionally, the economic conditions are merciless for far too many Americans; consequently, the need for action is pressing, and the extent of the demand is monumental.

I solute the 10 GOP Senators and believe that they are sincere in reaching out to President Biden for a bi-partisan vote; however, what they are offering is much too little and too late. Furthermore, where is the Republican leadership with efforts? Fool Us Once.

Senator Joe Manchin, Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, and Sen. Mark Kelly, we have the 51-vote majority in the Senate that would allow President Biden’s bill to pass. We need you to strengthen your resolve and step up and enable the relief package to pass through budget reconciliation if necessary. Americans don’t need to wonder where you are on the urgent relief package.

Demoncrats, let’s go, let’s unite, and let’s vote to move President Biden’s Biden’s $1.9 trillion economic rescue package through the House and Senate on to the American people.

Biden’s economic rescue package includes Enhanced unemployment aid, Rental assistance/eviction moratorium: Help for the hungry: More money for child care and child tax credits: A temporarily increase of tax credits: Subsidies for health insurance premiums: Restoration of emergency paid leave: More assistance for small businesses: Aid for states and schools: Increased support for vaccines and testing: and A $15 hourly minimum wage.

America Says, Nobody Is Above the Law

People of African Consent in the United States of America are watching the political and judicial leaders in this country to ensure that they also concur that “Nobody Is Above the Law.” After reviewing the historical relationship between People of African Consent and the American criminal justice system, we want to ensure this nation punishes those who attacked America’s democratic process on January 6, 2021, with criminal punishment proportionate to their crimes. People were injured, people died, and now, people are crying out for justice.

The rioting rabbit mob forced lawmakers, staffers, and journalists to hide in secure locations as the mob ransacked offices, assaulted Capitol Police officers, and stole property. They also embarrassed this nation and brought the concept of American exceptionalism down to its’ lowest level in decades.

White racists in America have often lived in spaces above the law while functioning on white privilege principles. Their belief in white privilege caused them to think that they could destroy the Capitol Building, the seat of our democracy, and go home and have a beer.

The violent armed white mob who breached the Capitol Building committed grave crimes; therefore, we must prosecute all offenders to the full extent of the law. According to a U.S. Department of Homeland Security report, white racist “present the gravest terror threat to the United States.” If the mob who breached the Capitol Building are not charged and given jail time comparable to their crimes, law enforcement will further put all Americans of color’s and others’ lives at risk.

The rioters woke up on January 7, knowing that “it’s different this time.” On May 25, 2020, 8 Americans and members of the world community witnessed the 8 minutes and 46 seconds slow-motion murder of George Floyd. On January 6, 2021, we saw thuggish white racist insurrectionists’ murderous crimes at the Capitol Building. Now, the Capitol’s horrific desecrations are seared in our collective minds forever.

Law enforcement officers and the criminal justice system must understand that; we are watching how you police the Capitol Hill racist white mob. Thus far, we don’t like what we see. We see white racists insurrectionists treated by law-enforcement like one would treat your little brother or sister that threw a rock and broke your mother’s glass framed door! No Capitol rioters can be allowed to go free! Individuals that are indicted and convicted of felony charges must be STRIPPED of their VOTING RIGHTS until they complete their full sentencing.

The Capitol Building was locked down for three and a half hours before officials declared the building was secure. Police officials and federal prosecutors implied that about 140 officers were injured. “All government officers of the United States, including the President, the Justices of the Supreme Court, state judges and legislators, and all members of Congress, pledge first and foremost to uphold the Constitution.” We must demand every elected official to re-pledge their allegiance. Americans must never forget that murder took place inside the U.S. Capitol building on January 6, 2021.

President Biden tweeted that, “No one can tell me that if it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protestors that they wouldn’t have been treated very differently than the mob that stormed the Capitol that lead to the deaths of five people.” America the Beautiful can also be America the repugnant, depends on the color of your skin or the county from which you came.

Following the debasement of the Capitol Building, some politicians are disingenuously asking for healing. If they genuinely want HEALING, first, they must show some integrity and assistance in obtaining ACCOUNTABILITY.

Health, Prosperity, and a Sense of Constitutional Normalcy.

On January 5, 2021, Georgians must demonstrate a high degree of Emotional Intelligent Voting. Why, It’s Different This Time. America has a group of mutineers who either don’t want to or can’t recognize the truth from a lie. Their Oath of Office and their patriotism to the United States of America is deeply in question.

A magnitude of Republican elected officials have expressed a level of dishonesty, knowingly or unknowingly, that is an essential threat to the U.S. democracy. The question is, where do we go from here? Momentous damages to our democracy occur every day without remorse or consideration for FACTS from the GOP perpetrators.

With REAL Americans, patriotism comes before one’s political party; therefore, Georgians must elect Democrat Raphael Warnock and Democrat Jon Ossoff to the U.S. Senate on January 5. 2021. By electing these two democrats to the U.S. Senate, we will give President elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris a fighting chance to save our healthcare, educational institutions, and economy, our jobs, our livelihood, and our nation!

Today, as we close out the Trump administration, Billionaires are eating our economy as millions of Americans eat from the free food lines for the first time. Americans want political leaders that uphold the U.S. Constitution and upholds the ideals of freedom, justice, and equality for all.

Though most Republican politicians would dare not to follow Pres Trump’s demands, we have Republican Congressman Adam Kinzinger of Illinois who has chosen to “speak up and lead without concern for the consequences and lead without fear.” Others must stand and work with President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris, Senators Warnock, and Senator Ossoff to put our nation on the road to health, prosperity, and a sense of Constitutional Normalcy.

American Will Not Allow The 2020 Presidential Elections To Be “Willie Lynched “Again

American Will Not Allow The 2020 Presidential Elections To Be “Willie Lynched “Again

It is a widely accepted fact that Russia “Willie Lynched” the 2016 U.S. Presidential election in favor of Donald Trump. It is also a fact that Russia used its’ Internet Research Agency influence operations to disenfranchise African-Americans/Black voters specifically.

As “Willie Lynch said during a speech to white slave owners on the James River bank in 1712, you must pitch the OLD BLACK MALE vs. the YOUNG BLACK MALE and the YOUNG BLACK MALE against the OLD BLACK MALE. You must use the Dark Skin Slaves vs. the Light Skin Slaves and the Light Skin Slaves vs. the Dark Skin Slaves. You must use the Female vs. the Male, and the Male vs. the Female.”

Using “Willie Lynch’s modus operandi, Russia aims to manipulate and inoculate Black people against voting using racial hatred, fear, suspicion, and envy. As we all know, life is the perception or deception of reality; therefore, Russia uses its’ disinformation and social control campaigns to manipulate the American people. Their strategy of turning Americans against each other by exploiting their differences.

Russia has also continued to scrutinize the U.S hyperpolarized racial divide. Their goal is to legitimize African-Americans’ racial grievances to exploit the Black vote. Russia’s hidden hand is involved in the protest movement across America.

Know with information sources. Again, Russians are using fake Facebook, Twitter, and Google ads to sustained their cyberattacks to deceive the American voters generally and Black Americans specifically. Fact, during the 2016 election, a total of 251 contacts between Trump’s team and Russia-linked operatives were identified, including at least 37 meetings”.

For years, the digital infrastructure that serves the United States has been literally under both internal and external attacks. However, the Trump Administration has shown little curiosity regarding expanding our cybersecurity and has provided minimum efforts to protect it.

Let’s be clear; Russian’s strategy is to disenfranchise Black and brown people of their rights to vote; more importantly, they aim to undermine the U.S.’s democracy! To protect our democracy moving forward, The United States of America must address the stench of systemic racism head-on.

Voting for our next president is Different This Time; therefore, Americans must encourage all family members and friends to be “Emotional Intelligent Voters.”

We must elect a president with empathy and self-respect. We need Real Political leaders that can put themselves in their VOTERS’ shoes, thus promoting more thoughtful and deliberate decisions. We must vote for the candidate who will provide us and those we love with a positive way forward and use the bountiful wealth of this nation to improve lives and remove our pain. We need a president who has the will and fortitude to smash the national and global COVIS-19 pandemic; moreover, we need a president to bring back a sense of normality.

Reparations4Education Part-Two

The CASE for Reparations4Education: During the pre-civil period in the United States, anti-literacy laws were a primary strategy used by southerners to dehumanize and control the enslaved Black PEOPLE. Anti-literacy laws were an extension of the scandalous slave code system.

Of all the countries that had enslaved people, the United States is the only country known to have prohibited the education of the enslaved. The concept of forbidding Black People an education was designed to keep them in the lowest state of degradation and ignorance. Racial disparities existed then as it exists today.

Moreover, funding of Reparations4Education will allow African-American/Blacks to “Break the Cycle” of a systemic miseducation system. This will be accomplished by building a “Culturally-Congruent” afro-centric education model to serve the dedicated educational needs of Black People. Below, lets’ look at a government-funded model that has worked to build the strength and power of one of America’s closes ally.

It is a globally known fact that the United States provides a yearly military aid package to the state of Israel. The $4+ billionin annual U.S. military aid to Israel doesn’t go to Israel as a cash allotment. The Annual American aid package goes to a select group of U.S. arms dealers to pay for weapons that are given directlyto Israel.

It is our collective duty to pay close attention to geopolitical policies that affect world peace and U.S. interest. Case in point, Israel is considered to be a significant U.S. ally; consequently, the U.S. aid has positioned Israel to be the most potent military force in the Middle East.

Those that read this article may wonder what the annual U.S. military aid package to Israel has to do with “Reparations For Education” for Afrodescendants  people in the United States of America! First and foremost, Afrodescendants Melaninated people in the U.S have never received compensation for the horrific, brutal, inhumane, psychological and physical damage forced upon our forefathers and mothers.

The genocidal treatment of our Africans Ancestors covered the timeline of Trans-Atlantic slave trade and American enslavement from 1619 to 1865 and beyond. The aid to support “Reparations For Education” will enable African-American/Blacks, over time, to become one of America’s most potent scholarly forces. The return on investment from supporting Reparations4Education is remarkable. Case Study: “Mrs. Oral Lee Brown’s 1987 Contract with 23 first-graders in an inner-city Oakland, CA school.”

Entities tied to the U.S. government, Corporation interest, and wealthy individuals are still responsible for gross injustices done to our ancestries and ourselves. Sick individuals kidnapped, shackled, shipped, auctioned, imprisoned, tortured, raped, lynched, and legally forced into illiteracy, poverty, and second-class U.S. citizenship.

There is a growing global awareness that addressing past injustices is a crucial part of the process of healing and reconciliation. African People were brought to America and forced to work without compensation in a land that was foreign to them and their culture. There are also long-term international laws related to payments of Reparations.

African-American/Blacks will hold the American Government, Shipping companies, significant corporate interest, insurance companies, identified families, and all others that were involved in the vicious demonic enterprise of enslavement of our people accountable without exception! More importantly, Afrodescendants  will use the Israel model to obtain resources required to establish our Reparations for Education program.

We will demand that the United States provide a yearly aid package to Afro-Descendants in America to set up our national scholarship fund. The annual amount that we will request is to be determined. Similar to the annual U.S. military aid package to Israel, funds requested will not be given directly to any individual.

Funds for the Annual American’s Afro-Descendants scholarship aid package will be placed in morally responsible and highly credible U.S. financial institutions and consequently paid directly to U.S. State Colleges and Universities for the education of descendants of former enslaved Black people in America.

The strategy of Reparation for Education is a win; win for both the U.S government and Afro-descendants communities in America. Education will perpetuate the beginning of the end of economic inequality. The return on this investment will pay for itself in a very few years; hence, it will produce an educated Afro-descendants population that will contribute significantly to research, development, and economic growth that has made the U.S. the greatest nation in the world.

Note: Domestic and offshore tax haven cost American taxpayers billions if not trillions of dollars every year. The U.S must use the information provided by the recently released 11.5 million documents known as the “Panama Papers” to close the domestic and foreign tax loopholes and reclaim revenue lost to offshore Tax Havens.

The U.S. must immediately identify U.S. citizens listed in the Panama Papers and recapture the approximately two trillion dollars determined by document release. Other well-known offshore tax havens used by tax dodgers include Bermuda, Cayman Islands, and Seychelles.

It is a fact that most of our elected officials have known about offshore slush funds and tax havens for several years. The question is if they know about these illegal activities, why aren’t they doing anything to protect the interest of those of us who have elected them?

As we move toward November 3, 2020, national elections, we must demand that every candidate acknowledges what they know and when they knew, and more importantly, when are they going to bring funds back on-shore.

Politicians must commit to ending the kind of high-tech thieveryouted by the Panama Papers by all tax havens, both foreign and domestic period. Let’s make our votes count; therefore, we must elect quality candidates whose mission is to develop an equitable tax accountability system and work to provide a higher quality of life for all families.

Reparations4Education’s principal goal is to stimulate and increase “Higher Educational Attainments,”; thereby reducing income inequality for members of America’s Afrocentric communities. African-Americans have suffered immensely as a result of the genocidal enslavement of our people in the U.S. Many other groups have endured pain at a much lesser rate and have received reparations.

If the U.S. government leaders are willing to provide billions annually in U.S. military aid used to kill and destroy, they surely must be ready to provide support (Reparation4Education) used for growth and development. Therefore, Black people want full-freedom, and Reparations4Educations will provide us full-freedom that will not be Racialized!


This Piece Is A Clear Eyed Message To Melanated People the World Over.

In Terms of Economics, Black People Are Collectively, And financially In Last Place

Melanated People’s Salvation Will, In Large A Part, Depends On US Making OUR Connections.

We are the people

Of the broken cord

But we are not

Of the broken Spirit

We don’t know

Just who our

Ancestral Fathers and Mothers are

Or just what land

From which they came

But with our mind’s eyes

We can see over the waters

In the mirrors of their lives

Are the mirrors of our lives

Just like looking at your Father,

Your Mother, Your Sister

And Your Brother

The kindships live inside our Souls

But the Connection is Yet to be Made

By: Mansour Id-Deen

Peacefully March Throughout The Nation For Racial Justice, Do It

I have a message for peaceful marchers throughout the nation, Do It, its’ your first amendment right. Free speech is a constitutional right; however, destroying property, of any kind, is a crime. The honorable former Congressman John Lewis, who passed on ‎July 17, 2020, said, “When you see something that is not right, not fair, not just, you have to speak up. You have to say something; you have to do something.”

As you march and exercise your rights to bring about an end to racial injustice under the law, don’t allow yourselves to become unwittingly complicit in the criminal actions of white extremist groups. During a peaceful protest, these cowardly groups commit crimes while hiding in shadows without retribution. These feeble-minded hateful thugs intend to co-opt your mission to spread actual violence and to manifest disinformation.

There are many many different names used by hate groups in the United States and abroad; however, their actions, their spirit, and their souls are extremely wicked, sick, and inhumane. Authorities have identified hate groups AKA criminals gangs such as the so-called Proud Boys and the so-called Far-Right ‘Boogaloo Boys trying to Incite Violence at Peaceful Protests “In Plain Sight” of law enforcement officers. In most cases, they are allowed to commit crimes at peaceful protests with impurity!

On May 25, 2020, we, the global human family, were unfortunately forced to witness the horrendous 8-minutes and 46-second Minneapolis police slow killing of Mr. George Floyd. The gory details of Floyd”s murder penetrated the very souls of fair-minded people on every continent. The brutal nature of the murder of Mr. Floyd by a “Police Gang” woke up many Americans and, ultimately, changed the world.

Yes, the genie of waiting for racial changes is out, and we will not turn back. George Floyd is one of the latest of many black, brown, and indigenous men and women who have been murdered by the police. In most cases of when police kill Black Bodies, there is no transparency, no accountability, and hence, no justice.

The FBI definition of a Hate-Groups is “ criminal offense against a person or property motivated in whole or in part by an offender’s bias against a race, religion, disability, sexual orientation, ethnicity, gender, or gender identity.” What Say You? Many times we know the names of the Hate Groups; now, we must expose the Identify of individual haters.

Mass peaceful protests are legitimate and justified strategies used to bring about change when so many calls for justice, accountability, and an end to systemic racism have fallen on deaf ears. I encourage Americans and others around the world to continue to step up and speak out and create a new paradigm that demands equity, racial justice, and realignment of our legal and social justice both nationally and globally.

We must be factually aware that extremists groups’ infiltrate peaceful protest for the sole purpose of inciting aggressive police action against blameless protesters. These groups’ egregious actions are very dangerous and, in the most extreme cases, will cause the loss of innocent lives.  For America to be great a great nation, we must dismantle systemic racism at its’ roots.

On November 3, 2020, the United States voters will have another opportunity to get it right. This round includes elections for the president, legislators, governors, secretaries of state, attorney generals, district attorneys, mayors, city council members, school board members, and judges.

We must vote the “Full Ballot” and not allow a minority group of voters to become our deciders.  This November, we must march ourselves to the voting booth and vote for politicians that will dismantle systemic racism PERIOD.  We must vote for someone who has demonstrated, through both their deeds and actions, that they will protect our interest and have already taken up residency on the right side of history.

We Have To Save Our Own Lives

First, I want to wholeheartedly offer my deepest regrets to all families of African-American/Black victims murdered by police officers who, by accepting their badges and their guns, made an oath to uphold the law. Police officers also pledged to “protect and serve,” not to kill without any concern for Black mortality.

On Monday, May 25, 2020, individuals the world over witnessed the wicked, heartless, and treacherous murder of Mr. George Floyd while in Police Custody. Mr. Floyd’s murder has ignited a global outcry for police accountability, and Justice for Black and Brown Lives. I join Philonise Floyd, George Floyd’s brother, in saying, may he rest in power. Fired Police Officer Derek Chauvin lost his humanity kneeling on the neck of George Floyd; now, its’ time for him to lose his freedom. George Floyd’s death is changing world day by day and march by march.

It appears that many U.S. Police departments and police officers are still operating based on the concepts of the “The Casual Killing Act of 1669 which declared it legal to kill a slave while correcting because malice could not be presumed. The “casual killing of slaves” says that if a slave dies while resisting his master, the act will not be presumed to have occurred with “prepended malice.” https://blackthen.com/811/

Systemic racism governs every aspect of Black Lives; however, we will not allow police killing of unarmed African-American/Black people to become normalized. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Somebody Told a Lie One Day (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=podSc5KA6RA).” That lie that Dr. King spoke of has lead to institutionalized racism and dehumanization of Black people. Black people worldwide must continue to acknowledge, “Full Throatily,” that we are now, and we will forever be “Unapologetically Black.”

Black people are perpetually encountering troublesome levels of racist microaggression as we move in and out of the public square. This racist microaggression, experienced by Black people, generally starts as we leave home and ends when we return home with our lives intact.

Moreover, Black people are dealing with two international pandemics. Both pandemics, systemic institutionalized racism, and the Coronavirus COVID-19 have one common thread running through many deadly incidents, that is, the victims are disproportionately Black.

Fact, racism is a public health issue. As a result of this, I am requesting Black leaders throughout the nation to join me in demanding that the federal government (CDC) provide the Black and Brown communities with a “Nation Count” documenting Coronavirus COVID-19 infections and deaths data based on location, age, and race. We must address the racial disparity in coronavirus cases.

Data demonstrates that racism predetermines the type of medical care people of color people receive. Additionally, Police and so-called vigilantes’ verbal, behavioral, and environmental indignities towards Black people, lead to worse health outcomes for people of color.

In closing, lets’ talk about the historic Global Eugenics Associations (GEA) in the United States and Europe. GEA policy goals are designed to control the birth rate and to generate death in nations states and developing countries populated by individuals they consider undesirables. GEA accomplished their goal through depopulation strategies such as designer wars and the spread of infectious diseases. (search Project Coast: eugenics in apartheid South Africa.“

Based on this knowledge, one would have wonder if Coronavirus COVID-19 a Global Eugenics Association strategy?


Cases of concern; In Wisconsin, a state that is only 6% Black, Black people account for half of the COVID-19 deaths. In Chicago, Black people account for 70% of the deaths due to COVID-19 but makeup only 30% of the population. In Richmond, Virginia, all but one of the people who died of COVID-19 were Black. Black and Brown people and other people of color have to save our own lives.

The Coronavirus COVID-19 Global Pandemic

The coronavirus COVID-19 is a Global Pandemic; therefore, the world community must create scientific evidence-based real-time healthcare solutions to save billions of people around the world.

Based on the fact that coronavirus COVID-19 is a Global Pandemic, nations around the world must build trust and cooperation within and among nations, and between people and their governments.

On Monday, May 18, 2020, member nations of the World Health Organization (WHO) led an inquiry into the coronavirus, AKA COVID-19 pandemic. Members nations, except for the USA, agreed that the global community must develop a “comprehensive after-action review of the global response to COVID-19 when it’s under control.”

While countries have agreed that any coronavirus vaccine must be for the “global public good” and “accessibility and affordability in developing countries,” other countries are seeking to protect claims related to self-serving intellectual property rights.

Nations are struggling to end the spread of the Covid-19 by testing and treating patients, carrying out contact tracing, limiting travel, quarantining citizens, and canceling large gatherings such as sporting events, concerts, and schools.

The world community must work collectively to prevent any similar pandemic from recurring. In the final analysis, we must develop ways to help nations better avoid and, if necessary, manage such future Global Pandemics. We must work to ensure that the world community makes full use of what we learn from the global investigative network of scientists from around the world.

A global response to coronavirus COVID-19, a Global Pandemic, will lead to investments in our collective future. One thing for sure, humankind needs competent leadership and unanimity to defeat the coronavirus.

In closing, I want members of the Africa diaspora, as well as our continental African brothers and sisters on the mainland, to fully comprehend that racial identity is a major factor when it comes to disproportionately high-rate of death from COVID 19.

The data on COVID-19 reinforce this reality. Without a doubt, Black people are more likely to contract COVID-19 and are dying at higher rates. People in the Latinx and Native American communities are also dying disproportionately from the virus. For this reason, African-American/Black leaders in the United States must demand a National Count!

What we do know is that the COVID-19 mortality rate for Black Americans is 2.2 times higher than the rate for Latinos, 2.3 times higher than the rate for Asians, and 2.6 times higher than the rate for Whites. This data is extremely concerning, unacceptable and unsustainable.

Research has further revealed that: “For each 100,000 Americans (of their respective group), 42.8 Blacks have died, along with about 18.4 Asians, 19.1 Latinos, and 16.6 Whites. Since we began reporting these data, Black Americans’ COVID-19 mortality rate across the U.S. has never fallen below twice that of all other groups, revealing a durable and undeniable pattern of disproportionality”.

Again, Black Americans must demand a “National Count” race and ethnicity. As of today, only 39 states are known to be releasing full or partial COVID-19 death data disaggregated by race and ethnicity.
