You hear from every pol and pundit: The coronavirus does not distinguish between Black and White, rich and poor, Republican or Democrat.

This virus is one highly partisan little bug.
And a racist. Call it “Corona Crow.”
The virus attacks “the vulnerable.” And in our society, “vulnerable” does not refer to billionaire reality show hosts. Check out this Center for Disease Control chart based on studies using the Public Health Disparities Geocoding Project. Influenza hospitalization rates for impoverished African-Americans are three times the rate compared to non-poor whites.
But going postal will all but guarantee Trump’s re-election.
