Black Death is America’s ethos: The coherence of anti-black racism in the COVID-19 crisis

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

COVID-19 is one of the most lethal pandemics of the 21st century. The virus can affect any individual of any social class or race, but unsurprisingly, the death tolls of this virus follow the course of disposability charted by the inequalities of the previous century. Marginalized socio-political groups within various nations such as those who suffer poverty or racial and ethnic minoritization have been particularly vulnerable to the most lethal symptoms, while male and elderly demographics have been shown to be at disproportionate risk for contracting the disease.
