New Report Examines Structural Racism’s Effect on Covid-19 Pandemic

BLK Uprising has released its report on structural racism in the U.S. under the Covid-19 pandemic. 

According to the report, multiple factors contributed to the high percentage of deaths in minority populations throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. The report examines how minorities are exposed to more air and water pollution making people more susceptible to a virus like Covid-19. Also, minority populations having less adequate housing, lacking access to healthy food, and lacking or having no health insurance were also contributing factors to Covid-19 infections. The report provides a complete picture of how the effects of structural racism impact the health of minorities. 

With this new information at hand, BLK Uprising is calling on federal, state, and local governments, as well as NGOs and minority issue advocacy groups, to push for healthcare for all (Medicare for All / Single Payer Healthcare), reparations (direct payments and community investment), and affordable and safe housing. As explained in the report, repairing the structural issues in healthcare and housing are critical to improving the overall health and well-being of black, brown, and indigenous communities.
