(Claire Russel, Liberty Headlines) In a public letter, dozens of public health officials downplayed the risks of the coronavirus as they relate to mass protests,

After months of hyping the deadly virus threat as justification for economy-wrecking lock-down measures, the so-called medical experts instead proffered their opinion that racism and white supremacy were the real public-health threats.

Similarly, the American Medical Association slammed police brutality as a “critical determinant of health.”

“Police violence is a striking reflection of our American legacy of racism—a system that assigns value and structures opportunity while unfairly advantaging some and disadvantaging others based on their skin color,” the AMA said.

Also on Friday, the American College of Physicians said in a statement that it is “gravely concerned” about law enforcement’s habit of “endangering” African Americans “and even costing them their lives.”

“ACP has long held that hate crimes, prejudice, discrimination, harassment and violence against any person based on race, ethnicity, religion, gender, gender identity, sex, sexual orientation, or country of origin is a public health issue,” said the ACP.

Despite the claims, no scientific evidence exists that links ideological views with a specific medical condition.

However, the economic toll of the erstwhile coronavirus hysteria did result in further oppression of the black community. Among the brutal impacts were job losses for many low-wage earners that resulted in evictions and deprived children of both food sources and educational opportunities by closing schools.
