Harvard Study: Slavery Reparations Would Have Reduced COVID-19 Cases

A new study from Harvard University asserts that reparations for black Americans could have reduced the number of COVID-19 cases.

The study, part of a report by the Lancet Commission on Reparations and Redistributive Justice, claims that the “disparity” in COVID-19 cases between black and white Americans is due to “structural racism,” and argues “Reparations for Black Americans would have decreased their COVID-19 risk.”

It cites several variables, including that blacks “would not be forced as frequently into high-risk frontline work,” and increasing the ability to access masks and hand sanitizer.

Lt. Col. Allen West, a frequent YAF speaker on the topic of reparations, slammed the new Harvard study, stating it is “absurd” to draw any correlation between COVID-19 and reparations.

“I am a Black American who has had six COVID-19 tests, all negative,” West told YAF. “I take my healthcare as a personal responsibility and work hard to prevent myself from being afflicted with the major health issues that affect Black Americans, type 2 diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and heart disease.”

“No amount of ‘reparations’ is going to resolve this,” he said. “What this report seeks to do is continue to perpetuate a slave mentality among Blacks. It is an endeavor to continue the economic enslavement and dependency society in the Black community… It is this clear and present soft bigotry of low expectations that has been the greatest cancer which has infected the Black community, at the hands of delusional leftist elitists.”

West hits the nail on the head here. There is strong irony here in liberal Harvard elitists trying to belittle black Americans, and reduce their American experience to one of dependence on government to succeed or even survive.
