On Sunday, a video of a densely packed house on Chicago’s predominantly black West Side was posted to YouTube. It is unclear which politician instigated the gathering, which placed dozens of lives at risk. But there’s little doubt that a conspiracy is afoot to spread, or at least not prevent the spread, of the COVID-19 virus in the black community.
Since the pandemic began, there have been countless stories about how black Americans are disproportionately dying from coronavirus infection. Many of these stories have imputed the over-representation to “deep structural racism,” though some theorize it’s worse that that: that the virus is a deliberate diabolical scheme to “thin out” the black population.

The video below features Rep. Marcia Fudge (D-Ohio). In it, she suggests that the only businesses reopening around the country are ones frequented most by blacks.
Let me just say very quickly on them opening things: You know they opened up the beauty salons and barber shops, the bowling alleys and the movie theaters. When they open up the country clubs and the tanning spas, then I’ll know it’s safe for the rest of us.
Because they just opening up things that black people go to because they know we’ve got these checks and they want us to spend them.
They don’t care about our safety, that’s why when they start to open things they go to, then I’ll understand it’s time for them to open up some things for us.
