Critics Fear Kansas City COVID Vaxx 'Equity' Might Discourage Urban White Seniors

A controversial note comes from our readers but certainly deserves consideration amid all of the racially charged rhetoric surrounding the local vaxx effort . . .

A quick reminder about the priorities set aside by Mayor Q and council . . .

KCTV5: Kansas City COVID-19 Task Force to address vaccine equity in communities of color

The word from our blog community and one of our favorite readers . . .

"I am well aware there are all manner of disparities in Kansas City, I've lived through them, but this virus is such a threat that ANYONE who wants a vaccine should get it. 

"What's disappointing to me is that this is yet another instance where the conversation is focused on racism more than anything else.

"Unfortunately, this kind of conversation will discourage so many white seniors living in the urban parts of KC. They'll feel left out and possibly alienated by language that excludes them. I'm concerned for my white neighbors who now view than pandemic as just a minority issue and don't realize that COVID is colorblind and not nearly as picky as our (elected) leaders. As a Black woman I've helped both my white and Latino senior friends get the vaccine, they both didn't know it was available to them in part because my council members in the 3rd District are only focused on protecting their own special interests and their friends. 

"It's a shame this pandemic has divided our community and I would rather see KCMO focus on vaccinating EVERYONE who needs help and not just those who are politically connected." 

You decide . . .

don't worry. Black panthers will be totally fair when they are "protecting" people at the KC vaccine lines.

Lame all.

The only color KC politicians care about is green.

Equity isn't what's going to discourage them. It's the unnecessary hysteria and the morons that are running things that will discourage them.

They should administer the vaccine with fentanyl mixed in with it. That would be really cool.

^^Yes! Then we do the same to all the geriatrics! Great idea white-trash!

The only real pandemic in this country is those screaming racist's this and that crap all the time.

Suck it up buttercups, get to work and you can have what everyone else has. Sitting around waiting for handouts is no way to be someone or to acquire anything in life.

^^OH you mean sitting around and posting on here all day is a better way to acquire something you fucking dummy? It's all you do.

I just assume white males will be the last in line like everything else the last six decades. White males are expected to work harder, work longer hours and be the last in line for any freebies.

The Star blames the racial disparity in vaccinations on...wait for it...systemic racism. But there is nothing preventing black seniors from scheduling their vaccinations like so many white seniors have done. In honor of black history month (Just a month? Seems a lot longer) and to celebrate its own wokeness, the Star will blame everything disparit on systematic racism. With the exception of NBA lineups of course.

Will mayor ask for black Panthers to administer the vaccine with syphilis to po white folk?

I won't willingly take the vaccine and will use every legal method to do so. Frankly were I black, despite the plantation pushing it from every direction, I wouldn't take it either. The very few blacks I know, trust those in powa as little as I do. Don't get me wrong, they are still a solid plantation voting block. But, maybe it will change if they can actually look, see, and understand how the communist progressive democrats view them; as mindless slaves.

Why are negros so racist?

Obama never would have been elected twice if America was as racist as the Demoncraps want you to believe. They make their bank by dividing everyone into sub-groups and play all of us like tools.

4:32 The black panthers want to use ak47 style dart guns on high pressure to give the shots to white people, and they can shoot them where evar they want.

But where are all the "leaders" n the black community who constantly blame everything and everyone else for their problems?
How about Stacy Shaw, Gwen Grant, Justis Horn, all the revs, and all the volunteer "marchers" who made so much noise (and accomplished nothing) during the BLM riots?
Why can't these folks organize and provide transportation for seniors in the minority communities so that they can get to the vaccination sites?
In fact, how about the "free" bus service the city provides?
Now we have a "vaccination desert"?
Really?
What we have, again, is a motivation, taking initiative, personal responsibility desert.
Sad.

The more you are in and around blacks, you will realize that racism is indeed, a natural state and easy to understand.

Wait, Mayor Q got the vaccine long before beloved local white hero Len Dawson and someone is saying the vaccination rollout is racist? I can't believe that.

Truman Medical seemed to get the most COVID vaccination vials before anyone else in the metro area on either side of the state line. I didn't realize the hospital was in the middle of a lily-white population.

Mayor Q should have given up his place in line for the vaccination to older local sports icons George Brett and Len Dawson, but because they're white, he said, "I don't budge for no honky."
