3. I voted no with a caveat.

Racism was definitely in their “open up now” protests last month.

It was killing people of color in cities primarily so the gun taters and trump humpers didn’t care. And racism fueled a lot of that.

But now they are so invested in following trump they just tend to be stupid and ignore the virus and pretend it won’t kill them

4. A right winger told my husband COVID 19 only affects minorities.

And he is lucky he won’t get it because he’s white. My husband pointed out that white peoples are also dying from it but the guy told him he was wrong.

My husband has adapted to the stance now To never argue with an idiot or mf45 supporter. It’s a waste of time and breath.

8. This could be multiplied by a number of issues

Would Trump and his followers be more concerned about school shootings if they weren't committed by white people? I've wondered about that many times.

Anyway, the answer to your question is yes, of course. And the Trump group would be demanding everyone wear masks instead of raging against them.

10. The disparity in survival is real, but it isn't as though COVID-19 is not devastating white pop too

including his own supporters as middle age and older white males ARE his demographic. I wouldn't claim Trump cares about the POC affected, but it is his incompetence and general sociopathy at play. He doesn't give a damn about ANYONE except himself or those he DIRECTLY needs to help himself (however temporary). He has contempt for his own supporters as well but he is in sufficient denial to believe most of them will survive so that their risk from COVID-19 does not concern him

11. Yes, But...

...this presumes PINO is still in office.
So, it would be "all hands on deck", but the response would still be incompetent.

12. I voted no.

This whole thing about Afghanistan troops - that's white people.

The three Marines who died - white people.

Trump doesn't give two shits about anyone who isn't rich and contributing to his campaign.

13. The military has a higher percentage of POC than civilians.

Afghanistan troops aren't necessarily white people.

15. The three marines who died

were all white, all decorated, all greatly respected by family, friends, comrades at arms.

I'm not saying there are no POCs in Afghanistan. I'm saying he doesn't give a shit.

Another example. The tax cut. It hurt the middle class. Mainly white Americans. He didn't give a shit.

16. Maybe it is just coincidence...

but he appeared to be way more interested in the project before the racial profile of Covid victims was published.

18. He didn't give a shit in the early stages when Washington state was being hit...

which I believe was majority white. He couldn't care less about NYC being hit because it's Democrats dying. The only reason he "cares" now is because Goldman Sachs spoke about how mask wearing would help save the economy. Same with McConnell and Pray-it-Away Pence.

Add "arrogance" to incompetence and stupidity.
