ARE BLACKS MORE VULNERABLE TO COVID19?.

Are blacks more vulnerable than other race due to UNDERLINE MEDICAL PROBLEMS?.

Here are some factors that are affecting blacks than the speculations on television.

 POVERTY. Is to lack,scarcity, no access to good food, unhealthy diet due to poverty,stress from poor neighborhood, polluted air, no access to good hospitals and socioeconomic status. WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY: Poverty is destitution, indigence, privation, lack,shortage,inadequacy and scarcity.

 SEVERE DISCRIMINATION. Most people don’t like blacks because of their hair and skin color. God are you with me ?. Because God this  is your creation.

They are labeled unnecessarily. They are stigmatized making it difficult to get a good job unless through connection or by luck.Some suffer from social isolation, low self esteem and over weight.Racist leaders that encourage, support and promote division, sowing the seed of discord in the society.And the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field;the which when a man hath found, he hideth,and for joy thereof goeth and sellers all that he hath ,an both that field.Never give up because your efforts will put food on the table and motivate your family to move forward.Filter important information.Forward ever and backward never.

Opportunity + preparation = Destiny. How true is that for so many blacks?. If you are black, do not take “No” for an answer. Do not give up but don’t put yourself in harm’s way.COVID19 is real.It will kill anyone. Maintain and boost your immune system. Please take your vitamins. Be respective, grateful and appreciative.

ATTITUDE PROBLEMS. Be honest to yourself. Honesty is the best policy. You don’t gain anything by stubbornness. Listen to your doctors,nurses,and your teachers. Listen to your local authorities, the State and Federal government.You can learn from anyone.When you get a job maintain the job by doing the right things.Do your best to keep your job.Punctuality is the soul of business. Go to work on time.Do your assignment, if you don’t understand ask questions.Do your best to be friendly, smile when needed.Do not judge anyone.You are the carver or maker of your own future. Nobody will look after you but you.

Stop being stubborn as a black person ,pay attention, don’t be angry, because they are waiting for you to be hyper. So that they will document against you. Wash your hands with soap and water frequently, use hand sanitizer frequently, social distancing 6feet apart, sneeze into your elbow. Do not touch your face. If you are sick stay home. Do not be a statistic. Pay attention to what other race are doing. What is good for the goose is good for you too. Find a way to survive COVID19 by not sacrificing your life. Watch your front and back. Talk only when necessary.

Some African old men especially those from Nigeria go back to Nigeria and marry young women and turn these women into “ATM MACHINE”. So these women work 16hours every day.They worked and worked, their immune system become compromised because their bodies have not rested.Men that do this are PIMPS. So many Nigerian women died from Coronavirus because they have husbands that don’t really care about them but the money that is coming in.Do not allow yourself to be abused.If the heat in the kitchen is too much complain to someone who will listen to you. And make changes, if it is not working get out.

Please don’t be a victim. I am not guessing, I know what I am saying.                                                 God did not create blacks to be the worst believe me.There is nothing that blacks cannot do.Reflect back on wealthy blacks that you know.Smile and be encouraged because you can be that person. All you need is to be determined and focused.
