The Minnesota Department of Health Proves that there Is NO Systemic Racism
by Paul Craig Roberts via Institute for Political Economy
A Minnesota Department of Health Document, “Ethical Framework for Allocation of Monoclonal Antibodies during the COVID-19 Pandemic,” describes the rationing system to be used in Minnesota for rationing monoclonal antibodies to those infected with Covid. Various factors are considered, such as comorbidities, age, pregnancy, and BIPOC status (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) adding up to a possible total of 24 points. Those with the highest points are considered to be the most vulnerable and thus have a priority claim to the limited supply of monoclonal antibodies. A BIPOC status gives the person a two point edge over white people.

Before examining this apparent racial bias against white people in the treatment of Covid, let us first ask: why is there a shortage of a cure for Covid instead of a shortage of a “vaccine” that neither protects against contacting Covid and all of its variants nor prevents the spread of the virus, but does cause injury and death?
Why does the production of an ineffective and dangerous “vaccine” take precedence over production of a cure?
Why is all the emphasis on ineffective, dangerous, and counterproductive vaccination and not on cures. If there are to be mandates, why not mandate effective and safe cures and preventatives, such as Ivermectin, HCQ, and monoclonal antibodies?
How was it possible for public health systems around the world to totally fail in such an inexcusable and irresponsible manner?
The governor of NY state and mayor of NYC are destroying people’s lives and businesses and liberty for the sake of Big Pharma profits. So are the governments of Australia, Austria, and Germany. Why aren’t the guilty politicians arrested?
These are the real questions. As we all know, they are the questions the presstitutes and politicians ignore. Those who ask the relevant questions are demonized.
Allegedly, white Americans, indeed white people in general, including insane white liberals in Portland Oregon and white liberal Democrats everywhere, are systemic racists and white supremacists. Yet in Minnesota, primarily a white state, blacks are given priority over whites in the weighting system for access to the approved Covid treatment. If Minnesota whites were systemic racists, wouldn’t they at least not given treatment priority to blacks, and if indeed racists, wouldn’t they have given priority treatment to white residents?
As far as I can tell, the claim that blacks and other dark skinned people are more susceptible to Covid is not a claim of black inferiority to white people, although no doubt some white liberal Democrats will see it that way. As I understand it, perhaps incorrectly, blacks are more susceptible to Covid because their darker skin hinders the absorption of vitamin D from the sun. This is especially the case for blacks who live in northern regions of the US where many went from the south for industrial jobs. As Big Pharma using its shill presstitutes has a blackout on prevention and cure of Covid, most black, as well as white, people are unaware of the importance of vitamin D in preventing and mitigating infection with Covid.
Therefore, it is likely the case that the priority points given to blacks are valid if being black or darker skinned is similar to a comorbidity that makes the person more susceptible to catching a severe case of Covid.
So, the conclusion? The Minnesota Department of Health by the consideration it has given to those of BIPOC status has proven that there is no systemic racism, that the charge is a self-serving invention that destroys unity, and leads to gratuitous violence.
