New York Sued Over Plans to Racially Discriminate in Covid-19 Treatment Distribution

The state of New York is being sued over its plans to distribute treatment for Covid-19 based on race.  

 

Background: On Dec. 27, New York Gov. Kathy Hochul released a memo telling health care providers that eligibility for anti-viral treatments should weigh race as a risk factor for severe illness.  

 

“Non-white race or Hispanic/Latino ethnicity should be considered a risk factor, as long-standing systemic health and social inequities have contributed to an increased risk of severe illness and death from COVID-19,” it reads. (per Fox News)

 

  What Happened: America First Legal President Stephen Miller said “[W]e are suing the State of New York for deciding not merely questions of financial survival – but of physical survival – based upon skin color.”  

 

“New York’s racist COVID decrees dispense lifesaving medicine based on the race or ethnic background of the patient. New York is deciding questions of life and death based on a New Yorker’s ancestry. This is outrageously illegal, unconstitutional, immoral and tyrannical. And that is why we are suing the state – because right and justice and morality urgently demand it. No citizen should lose his or her life because the government – of the State of New York, or anywhere, or at any level – punished them because of the color of their skin.”  

 

What Democrats Say: Democrats have praised Hochul for the memo. Previously, the New York Gov. also signed legislation declaring systemic racism a public health crisis, and called for greater equity in public health.  

 

“For far too long, communities of color in New York have been held back by systemic racism and inequitable treatment,” she said.  

 

What The Health Department Says: The New York health department previously defended the measure.  

 

New York State Department of Health spokesperson Erin Silk said, “This guidance is based on CDC guidelines that show COVID mortality rates are higher among certain demographic groups, including senior citizens, immunocompromised individuals and non-White/Hispanic communities. NYSDOH is instructing health care providers to consider an individual’s health-based risk factors when providing this treatment, and has requested additional doses from the federal government because of the limited supply at this time.” (per Fox News)

Does anyone remember when Sarah Palin spoke about death panels????

Ahhh, don’t worry. This is just a small taste of what’s to come.

Death panels exist in every hospital.
When there are more patients than facilities the Death Panels decide who will live and who will die.
They have been around for hundereds of years

The Biden’s have made more money unethically, then ethically which accounts for their moral compass being so fxxxed up. The DOJ thinks that they are in business to protect Hunter Biden and father from any invesgations and the FBI is in business do joe’s bidding on school matters not look into interstate robberies of shipping or mail train packages etc. Crime is not on the Biden Adjenda to resolve, more attacks on the cops is, this will cost them in 2022 big time, Democrat run cities Mayors or DA’S have turned their back on crime and attack the police and the tax payors. They just don’t to guve a fxxx about the safety of the American people, opem borders, open drugs sales coming into our Country. Vote them out of office in 2022, they are corrupt and just can’t govern, time for a change in leadership, hold them accountable.

hilarious. to start I am not sure where you get this City crime rates are down BS but either you are lying or just grossly misinformed. I will let you tell us which.

the bigger point is not how much they made but how they made it.

in this case biden got rich off OUR TAXPAYER money as a politician.
insider trading. deals with our enemy China, Russia and Iran. used his son hunter in corrupt business practices with china.

trump was born into wealth and built his own wealth as a legitimate business owner.

now in due fashion I am sure the next words out of your mouth will be but but but Trump. do us all a favor and save your breathe. we know everything you will say comes directly off your lib type one liner talking point cheat sheet. they have been spewed so many times that we have them memorized.

You are so out of it and certainly no Patriot In fact from your name I presume a Nazi? No President Trump is not weak and allowing Biden to win, its all part of the Law of War. Catch them in the act. Military were conducting counts on Blockchain (Official USA Ballots carrying watermarks unseen by the human eye, with tracing like GPS) So far from being weak, President Trump is a super genius and he is not alone. The Alliance tracked every last ballot. You should go live in a communist Country. Trump 81%, Biden a mere 10%

ANOTHER ARM OF THE DEMOCRAT PARTY, TRADE OFF books and subjects not approved by parents but by the democrat radicals. Vote these democrats out of office in 2022 take back your schools, your rights as parents,vote straight Republican for public office, and most of all who is on the scholl boards and why. Teachers unions have steadily amped up their political involvement: From 2004 to 2016, their donations grew from $4.3 million to more than $32 million — an all-time high. Even more than most labor unions, they have little use for Republicans, giving Democrats at least 94 percent of the funds they contributed to candidates and parties since as far back as 1990, where our data begins.Two organizations account for practically all of the contributions made by teachers unions: The National Education Association(about $20 million in 2016) and the American Federations of Teachers (almost $12 million). Both groups — which compete for members, but also collaborate with each other through the NEA-AFT Partnership — are consistently among the organizations that contribute the most money to candidates and political groups. Take back your schools, your books, your subjects, and get rid pf these Flag hating people who hate America, Americans, and our American way of lfe.

Did New York’s unelected governor actually look back at who has controlled the State of New York’s ‘system’ for the last 80+ years?

If you’re implying that they’ve been mistreated because they’re black, you couldn’t be further from the truth. Actually the reverse is happening. If you’re Asian and have studied your butt off (because many grow up in that kind of culture) to graduate in the top of your class, don’t expect colleges to fawn at your feet. They have quotas to fill.

New Yorkers should move South. The South long, long ago did away with any kind of discrimination based on race, and especially NOT anything related to health issues. I should know…… I am over 90 years old and have lived in the South my entire life (and I’m so glad!).

Correction Hess you are a big baby! President Trump is 75 years old The Trump family left Trump Powers 5 years ago. He lost a lot of money too with the great depression and many Builders gave up, but he came back, rebuilt many Buildings in New York, restored the Ice Rink which others tried for decades and gave up on, he did it in a few months in Central Park as well as other notable Buildings. When the Towers fell President Trump brought a team with him to assist in the clean up. New York owes him a lot of gratitude. Go back to school and learn actual facts.

Blacks started having problems just as soon as they were herded onto slave ships.
They kept pushing and shoving to be first in line to board.
Jews, Christians, Muslims, all other faiths, Asians, Brown People, Native Americans, Gay People, Trans People, Ignorant People, White People are always being victims.
Just look at all victims of voter fraud.
And the 300 million Americans guility of voter fraud.
Mike Pillow will be sending all 300 million of them to jail to join Lock Her Up Hillary.

Perhaps, the inequities stem from the people themselves as opposed to any system. Perhaps, people of color have lifestyle produced co-morbidities (e.g., they eat unhealthy food ), do not attend to their health with a regular maintenance regimen and have declined to be vaccinated as much as whites. Perhaps, the fault lies not with the whites, but with themselves.
