The left in the US is going to Tilt. The leader of Black Lives Matter New York promises a "revolt" against the "racist" vaccine passports imposed by the city administration.
According to data provided by the state of New York, about 85% of black residents have not received a dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.
Hawk Newsome, the co-founder of Black Lives Matter of Greater New York, told the Washington Examiner that “ I think that, in a perfect world, [vaccine requirements] should be job specific. But it could be a slippery slope, so the obligation should be completely removed ” .
He added: “ White men in suits on Wall Street will not be stopped. There is such hypocrisy in this thing . "
Newsome said he believes black Americans " have a natural distrust of the vaccine, " citing the Tuskegee Syphilis Study in the 20th century for a reason. The Tuskegee Syphilis Study was a study involving black laborers who were not deliberately treated for syphilis as part of a "Scientific Study" on the evolution of venereal disease.
“ How dare they remove religious exemptions? It's the most disrespectful thing I've ever seen, ”Newsome said, adding that he believes most vaccine mandates don't allow religious exemption.
“ Now has the government decided that your God doesn't matter? I love God. "
New York Governor Kathy Hochul, a Democrat, argued in a court filed this week that the state has no constitutional obligation to grant religious exemptions to COVID-19 vaccines for healthcare workers. Religious exemptions to vaccines most commonly focus on objections to how aborted fetal cells were used in the manufacturing and testing process.
Another member of the group promised a "riot" in New York City over the vaccination requirement.
"We are warning this city that your mandate will not be another racist practice of social separation," Chivona Newsome, leader of the group, told other protesters during a demonstration in Manhattan in front of Carmine's restaurant on Monday.
“ Blacks won't stand by, or you'll see another riot. And this is not a threat. This is a promise “.
" The vaccination passport does not have to be a free passport to racism, " he added.
A big deal for the New York Democrats, both state and city. What they really don't need is a new racial revolt against them, a kind of silent Trump revenge.
