Here’s an exchange reported by the press, that is unfortunately all too common. New York City: “One of the leaders of Black Lives Matter’s Greater New York chapter slammed Mayor Bill de Blasio for the city’s vaccine mandate, explaining “the :mandate is racist and specifically targets black New Yorkers ” in a statement to Fox News.”

Well, yes, he probably is specifically targeting black New Yorkers because their rates of getting vaccinated are way too low, and he’s trying to save your lives and those of your parents and elderly relatives. This is a worldwide epidemic, and killing lots of people. The mayor doesn’t want you or your family and friends to contract Covid-19 and die from the disease. Unfortunately, a lot of people are dying from the disease, and undoubtedly because of silly attacks like yours, more people are not getting the vaccine which might save their lives.

I am sorry if you run into racist attacks or slights, Do try to give people the benefit of the doubt, and try to remember that what you might regard as a racist slight, might not be intended that way at all.
