Holy shit, America, what is wrong with you?...

"Between 2019 and the first half of 2020, life expectancy decreased 2.7 years for Black people, to 72. It dropped 1.9 years for Hispanics, to 79.9, and 0.8 years for white people, to 78."


@blkpws Can't blame it all on Trump. Or even COVID.

These disparities are caused by huge systemic issues created by decades of policy decisions.

America is onboard with poor people not having good health care or money for proper housing.

America is also onboard with racist policies keeping POC poorer.

@rune Yeah but here where I live (spain) also have issues like that, what I mean is Trump made it worse as he didn't care about their rights. It's sad.
