Why treatment is different

Updated 9/9/2021 9:44 AM

Rivers' cartoon of Sept. 4 asks why, if Blacks and Hispanics are the groups least likely to be vaccinated against COVID 19, why does the mainstream media show most anti-vaxers as, in the cartoon's words, "buck-toothed MAGA" adherents. I think I can answer that. First of all, there's a difference between not wanting to be vaccinated and screaming about microchips being injected into us and whatever other insane conspiracy theories (though I hate to give these conspiracies the dignity of calling them "theories") they have come up with. Secondly, there's a very good chance that if Blacks and Hispanics acted out the way the MAGAites (buck toothed or not) do, they'd end up arrested or shot dead.
