Black and Latino residents are receiving far fewer doses than white residents in Sacramento County, according to new data released by state officials Friday, reflecting a trend of racial disparity that has come to define the coronavirus pandemic.

BINGO! That is the plan!
Because they follow the science
...this is the sort of “toss the hand grenade over the wall and walk away...” kind of journalism [sic] we see today. There is no effort to explain any of this, just, well, you know, “whitey” is screwing over the Black and Latino communities again, can’t you see....? disgusting...
As Hannity has said so very often, journalism is dead in this country today...it is nothing more than pushing opinions and narrow points of view....
Folks need to TRY to get the vaccine. Currently, unless a person is in a facility, those who are too lazy to try or need to be “spoon fed” in life aren’t getting it. Apparently some groups are more prone to let others make any needed effort for them.
So are whites going out looking for the vaccine and people of color sitting home and complaining about not getting it?
Because a much higher proportion of people over 65 are white. And so also a high % of medical and first responder personnel.
The age distribution probably explains a lot more.
Whatever the reason, you can bet the rag’s reason for printing that is to whip up racial division.
Yep. Biden even said Latinos and blacks don’t know how to use the internet.
LOL, the key word here is "Californians", not "White"!
The number of whites over age 65 is likely larger than the similar demographic in the black/latino population.
What’s your point? It must be WHITE SUPREMACY!
This woman is mired in her McClatchy rag’s bias and insanity.
You cannot win these arguments.
If you don’t give it to the Black and Latinos first it means you are a dirty dog “Racist” who cares about whites only.
If you DO give it to the Black and Latinos first they will cry you are using them as guinea pigs to see if it is safe for whites.
White liberals are very trusting of governmental authorities.

Blacks=13% of the population
Latinos=18% of the population
The media will extrapolate the numbers to make it look racist. In reality, whites should have access at about 4x the rate of others. I really don’t believe anyone is lining up for this by race. “OK, blacks in line today, Hispanics tomorrow, whites on Saturday.” I believe it is first come, first served. Anyway, anyone wants my dose, they are welcome to it.
I know lots of white Californians under 65 and not in the health, LE, emergency services that have received the shot already. Not sure why, but they are getting it.

This is no surprise. It’s what happens when you have an evil, racist, conservative Republican governor.
Oh, wait. Never mind.
