We saw after BLM/Antifa rioting and demanding to “defund the police,” that the cities that moved in that direction saw a big spike in crime, shootings and murders. Among the people being adversely affected by this, black people. So the very people BLM claims they’re fighting for with all this are some of the people being harmed by the defunding as well as the rioting. We’ve been reporting on this for months but the Washington Post appears to have just discovered it, as we reported earlier.

But this isn’t the only place where the left and the media are getting it wrong. Media seems to want to pitch this picture of the people not getting vaccinated or reluctant to do so as white Trump supporters rubes. They seem to forget that we have the vaccines in large part because of President Donald Trump. While there certainly may be some Trump supporters in that group, there are people across the political spectrum who might not be getting vaccinated for a variety of reasons.

As these charts tend to show, the people who could be most impacted by vaccine passports or requirements of vaccinations like the cruise ships are contemplating would likely be black and Hispanic.

If a vax passport system were implemented today, Blacks & Hispanics would be the persons most likely to be denied services. Less than 30% vaccinated in each group.

This is actually one of the reasons that WHO is against vaccine passports because they believe it may adversely impact people. So this is not fitting the political biases that the liberal media tends to push. The cruise ships now doing battle with Florida Governor Ron DeSantis over the issue of requiring proof of vaccination could then end up being most likely to
