CCO Launches Petition to Hospitals Over Grave Racial Inequities in Vaccine Distribution

Communities Creating Opportunity has started a petition, addressed specifically to the CEOs of five KC-area hospitals and generally to all KC healthcare providers receiving vaccines from the state, to address the racial inequities in local vaccine distribution . . .

The petition, viewed at https://www.change.org/p/kc-healthcare-providers-bring-vaccines-to-black-brown-communities, calls upon healthcare providers to send mobile units into and host vaccination events in black and brown communities, highlighting the unacceptability of most vaccines going to whiter, wealthier, healthier areas thus far. CCO lifts up Truman Medical Center's visit to Morning Star Missionary Baptist Church as an example.

The petition further calls for each hospital to do a press conference, vowing to address this terrible inequity, and to issue public, weekly reports on their progress, tracking how many events, mobile unit deployments, and vaccines are taken into low-income minority areas.

"We all knew this was coming," says Danise Hartsfield, Executive Director of CCO. "When low-income people of color don't have the same access to the vaccine as others, we need to expand access. The hospitals must step up."

Everyone has the same choice. This woe is me I'm black is getting old. If you're black and you want to take that dangerous shot Bill Gates has put out there then go get in line with everyone else. People of color don't have access. That's a LIE give us a break even the stores are giving shots.

The city has vaccinations at all the community centers and the health dept all day everyday, the koloreds know this. Here’s the truth, black people don’t want to take it, they’re scared of it. Fact.

^^^ 6:15 AM Yeah, Tony is probably a Bill Gates Serf. Blacks are totally connected by City Hall. I kinda expected Tony would pimp for the Latinos getting some, but hey, protect your own.

5:59 not everybody wants it, just ask the blacks if you know any. I’m with 6:15 on this, the inner city has been for awhile now the only place to go get the shot and thanks to hyvee and Walgreens now even whitey has a chance to get it.

The funny thing is the blacks were given the chance to get the shots first and now that whitey can finally get it all they want to do is play the race card.

The blacks at my work think the shots will make them infertile. Now here’s the funny part, everyone of them is over fifty. The sick mind of black people.

Hey lady. I'm white and in a high risk group and I can't even find an appointment in KC for the vaccine. So much for white privilege.

There is no inequitable distribution of the vaccine based on ethnicity. What there is, is a reluctance of certain ethnic populations to take the initiative required to sign up for the vaccine, or visit a vaccination location. Some seem to think it should be brought to their doorstep.

Huh . . . kind of like voting. They won't go to a polling place, but if someone shows up with a ballot, and promises lots of handouts, they'll allow you to fill it out for them

Look at that picture - There is nothing worse than a woke white girl.

A curse on all of us.

The Dems have finally made their black voters so helpless and dependent that they can't even schedule their own covid shots like everybody else has to. Truman hospital at 22nd & Charlotte is much closer to the hood than it is to the majority white neighborhoods, yet the whites from those neighborhoods, and many farther out suburbs (as well as JoCo KS, but that's another story) managed to schedule and receive both Pfizer shots. Unknown why blacks from half a mile away couldn't do the same.

Must be racism. What isn't?

BS. There is a 2% differential in remote vs city vaccine distribution. This is not a statistical significant number. You wonder why there is division in this country? Just look at the continuous crying about discrimination on everything from housing to jobs.
If you want a better job, get an education. Maybe stay home and help your kids study? What a novel idea.

I’m white and managed to sign up for the shot all by myself, I didn’t need special treatment and hand holding or a racially divided (black only) location to do it. Got my shots and the only negative was I had to go into the hood to get it. No special places for white people in the white areas of town. That would be racist!

My arm hurt for two days after both shots but nothing else happened, but don’t tell the blacks that, they think it’s going to kill them! Hahahahaha!

TMC uses the vaccine they get to give shots to JoCo folks; very generous of them.

KC said...

Was a veterinarian giving shots in the hood? Might want to check that.

White people deserve the shot first because they are superior to the lower classes.

Whites are out there working..blacks hanging around the hood smoking crack..why give them priority?

Cry me a fucking river.

A black mayor, majority black city council, black county executive, black county sherrif, black people in most all senior positions at City Hall and they are screaming racism about the vaccine distribution.

These people have no end to the victim hood. They won't be happy until a white nurse is directed to go to black peoples homes and give them a shot while they sit their lazy fat asses on the couch watching the NBA on their 52 inch flat screen t.v.

THE EQUITY SCAM

EQUALITY is bad. EQUITY is good. WTF?

The slackers, the apathetic, the under-performers, the self-identified victims, the users, the Liberals, the Democratic Party, and all pigeon-hole special-interest groups have coalesced to promote the EQUITY SCAM.

It's a way to get more than you deserve, a way to essentially blackmail or coerce those who have more than you into giving you unearned freebies.

EQUITY is an un-American Socialist Marxist concept.
EQUITY rewards bad behavior.
EQUITY disincentivizes the work ethic principle that made this nation great.
EQUITY is toxic in the long-term for minority communities.

EQUITY IS A SCAM

But what of the babies kept in cages in tunnels under DC, NYC, London, Paris and New Orleans - as food for the cabal of baby eating democrats including all the supreme court judges (who dont like regular food for some reason)? Dont those babies have rights? There are supposedly tens of millions of babies in cages being kept for food. I wonder who has time to breast feed them all and change their diapers. Seem like it would be easier to go to Mcdonalds, Culvers, or Wendys for dinner. Could the MAGA be wrong about 2.2 million babies being kept in tunnels under the cities in our great land?

Bill Gates didnt make the covid vaccines.

Covid vaccines are from the same companies that made the flu shot you have been taking for years. And the shingles shots. And tetanus, and hep c shots.
