Reading Prompt for Discussion based on current events
USA, USA! I thought everyone since 2020 agreed that COVID19 was a Novel Coronavirus spread via Asymptomatic Airborne Transmission. Let me provide an important bit of nuance here. Those of us who have more melanin than Dr. Walensky and or Dr. Fauci and or have any immuno-compromising co-morbidity have more quickly and or more slowly succumbed after contracting COVID19 and or any of its variants. Dr. Jeffrey Sterling*, do I have my Coordinating Conjunctions ( CoorCons) correct? I am beginning to think based upon being only a participant observer in my second global pandemic, that I have survived so far by assessing and managing risks based on extant science. I have, I confess, questioned since my last in-person Professional Development meeting with my Principal and former colleagues at Widney CPTC, a Special Day school in the Central District of LAUSD, what was being done about the fact in December 2019 that those of us who have more melanin than Dr. Walensky and or Dr. Fauci and or have any immuno-compromising co-morbidity have more quickly and or more slowly succumbed after contracting COVID19 and or any of its variants. There was silence in the auditorium after I asked that question. No one even breathed, or sighed, or grimaced or chuckled or groaned. Then, just like that, the meeting continued as per its agenda. I have not been in the same physical space with those folks nor have I been in the same physical space with my predominantly white Inclusion Cohort ,( LAUSD iCAPP ( District Intern Program))-- but we established a chat line that I have heard from because its Winter Break, a time we actually look at texts in the middle of a Wednesday afternoon😉.
Guess what, I now have anecdotal reports of non-melanated, double vaxxed, boostered, and protocol-following folks with 2 consecutive "breakthough" infections who are doing just fine.** Well color me confirmation- biased, but I feel confident that being double vaxxed, boostered, and protocol-following WORKS!
AND, I think the good Dr.Fauci and his colleague Dr. Walensky are doing the same thing thing that was done to Black gay men who continue to succumb to my first pandemic, HIV/AIDS. Specifically, having multiple medicines that work to save and or prolong the lives of the non-melanated, they celebrate that victory, declare any war on COVID won, and move on happily down the yellow brick road.
I will not bore or titillate anyone with what erring on the side of an abundance of caution after watching the horror of too many of my friends succumb to HIV/AIDS drove me to give up. But NOW as THEN, I suppose I will be maintaining what should have been(?) universal protocols to live in the USA.
Please Drs. Harry Hazelwood and Jeffrey Sterling, feel free to comment. No hurry, especially if my conclusion makes the best sense for me. Now as then, the last thing I want is to have caused someone sickness and or death by asserting my Constitutionally- guaranteed freedoms to not wear a mask while asymptomatic and breathing on anyone up close and personal. Happy Holidays!⛄👍🖖🤟🌈💯🙏
*- Dr. Sterling is the Surgeon General of the Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. ( African-American fraternal organization founded in the USA). A practicing ER Physician, he is a published author and Healthcare Entrepreneur focused on prevention and wellness care. He has used his metrons, or spheres of influence, to advocate WHO and CDC/NIH guidance. He has been a consistent voice for making the science accessible to lay persons, creating spaces that allow the reader to assess their risks during life with COVID and act accordingly.
In case anyone was curious, we are both graduates of Northwestern University. I was not a member of any fraternity then or now.
**- See also, Roland Martin. Mary, did you know that Roland must now wait 90 days before he can get a booster shot? Mr. Martin helms Black Star Network (BSN), a Black- owned media company, never to be confused with Black News Corporation (BNC)***, a White-owned and Funded media company staffed (fronted?) by Black NEO CONS.
***- I am counting down the minutes until Darth Vader and Endorra are featured guests on BNC. But of course, that, like all of the history of The American Continent, is by design, never random chance or coincidence.
