Harvard scientists claim that slavery reparations could have saved black Americans from dying disproportionately from Covid-19. But their argument harms the very people they set out to protect. Some of their logic makes sense. Studying the population of Louisiana, one of the US’ most segregated states, the scientists found that African-Americans there were more than three times more likely to die of Covid-19 than whites last year, as they tend to live in crowded housing and work in ‘frontline’ occupations like nursing. They’re also more likely to be in prison or jail, where outbreaks can spread rapidly. Some is woke hokum, like the idea that “structural racism, violently-seized privilege, and continuous trauma from racial terror and dehumanization” have helped the pathogen infect and kill them, and the notion that the target ‘R zero’ reproduction rate of the virus is somehow “symbolic violence,” a piece of mental gymnastics that one clearly needs a Harvard PhD to make sense of.
