Dr. Fauci Plays Race Card – Says Black Americans are Not Safe from Covid-19 Yet Compared to White People

Why is this man still walking free?

Dr. Anthony Fauci is now trying to play the race card to regain some attention, just in time for the election.

Dr. Fauci told The Root on Friday that Black Americans are in danger in the case that a more aggressive variant appears.

According to Fauci, the hospitalization and death rate is much higher in the brown and black populations than the white people.

The Root reported:

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease specialist, told The Root today that cases of the deadly Covid-19 virus are slowly rising again across the country and warned that Black Americans could be particularly at risk in the event a more aggressive variant should appear.

Fauci said it’s still possible that transmission and hospitalization levels could again reach the crisis levels they had in much of 2020 and 2021 and why the disease still has a more devastating impact in the Black community than among whites or the population at large.

“The rate of hospitalization and the death rate among 100,000 population is clearly higher greater in brown and Black populations in the United States compared to the general population and compared to whites,” he said, citing the prevalence of underlying risk factors like diabetes and high blood pressure that already existed.

“So for the country as a whole, the pandemic has been extremely tragic, but for Black people, they’ve suffered disproportionately.”

Fauci also expressed concern that comments he recently made about the state of the pandemic sent the wrong message to the public at a time when cases of Covid-19 are steadily increasing. On April 26, he said the country was “out of the pandemic phase,” in an interview on PBS NewsHour. Those comments were widely repeated and, along with relaxed restrictions on masking and vaccines in many places, taken to mean that the danger from Covid-19 had largely been mitigated.

Dr. Fauci flip-flopped and lied for over a year to the American public about the seriousness of COVID-19 and his background in funding the Chinese virology lab and the origins of the virus.

As the Gateway Pundit reported on Friday, Fauci admitted that it is a good thing he flip-flopped because science changes from time to time.

“Yeah, what I can say, it’s a good thing. I have flip-flopped and the reason is because science and the evolution of this outbreak changes,” Fauci said laughing.

“If you are being true to the facts and true to the data, you’re going to have to change. That’s not flip-flopping, that’s getting moving along with the science the way this outbreak is moving along. And it’s understandable how the general public doesn’t fully understand that,” Fauci added.
