Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Demands Coronavirus ‘Reparations’ for Minorities

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez took to social media and bluntly stated that COVID-19 (i.e., Coronavirus) is impacting American-Black/Latino greater than their fellow Americans, tweeting, “COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities. Why? Because the chronic toll of redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions.”

“Inequality is a comorbidity. COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations.”

Previously, it was noted that the coronavirus might hit poorer neighborhoods harder, with the housing projects previously being named a “ticking time bomb” for the virus.
