New figures from non-partisan APM Research Lab show staggering racial divide in coronavirus death rate across US
Pre-existing racial disparities in access to healthy environments have made COVID-19 particularly deadly to African Americans.
Higher rates of infection and death among minorities demonstrate the racial character of inequality in America.
An analysis of the medical records of people who doctors tested for the new coronavirus suggests that the infection exacerbates existing socioeconomic inequalities.
Opinion: Why is COVID-19 killing more African Americans? Because too many have been left behind economically in the richest country in the world.
Eventually doctors will find a coronavirus vaccine, but black people will continue to wait for a cure for racism.
