Weeks ago, when data began to show how the coronavirus was impacting communities of color politicians (including the U.S. Attorney General), the media, and even celebrities (like Tyler Perry)
pleaded with the black & latino public to just stay home.
The implication in their pleads suggested that these communities were ignoring social distancing and disregarding the quarantine. Yes, there were cases where community members kept going to church
or refused to stay indoors. This was especially prominent in Ohio, Louisiana, and Florida as reported by Bloomberg
However, taking a handful of these cases and induce that this is the reason the coronavirus is ravaging these communities is not only spurious (aka invalid line of reasoning) but more importantly it is dangerous.
