    AOC earlier stated:
    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: "COVID deaths are disproportionately spiking in Black + Brown communities.
    Why? Because the chronic toll of redlining, environmental racism, wealth gap, etc. ARE underlying health conditions.
    Inequality is a comorbidity. COVID relief should be drafted with a lens of reparations." / Twitter


    Right-wingers were furious, with Laura Ingraham dismissing her as a "Doctor of Mixology".

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: "I deal w/ a lot of violent threats, vitriol, etc.
    But I never get more hate aimed at me than when I address racial inequities.
    If some people think racial disparities are as much a myth as other issues I discuss, then why do they get so much more violent & angry on this topic?" / Twitter


    She got a response that I find interesting:
    Zinovia "Zina" Spezakis for Congress NJ9 ✊🏼🇺🇸🌈 on Twitter: "@AOC It's because you point out just how racists many Americans are in their hearts." / Twitter

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: "To all the people that said “there’s no evidence racial disparities in COVID impact exist.” ⬇️⬇️⬇️
    I represent the most impacted neighborhoods in the country: Corona & East Elmhurst.
    These are overwhelmingly Black & Latino neighborhoods. Louis Armstrong’s house is here. https://t.co/NPAXdR1GHS" / Twitter

    noted
    Mark D. Levine on Twitter: "Michigan has just started reporting on coronavirus cases by race.
    African Americans are 14% of that state's population but 40% of deaths.
    This pandemic is reflecting--and exacerbating--inequality.
    NYC should publish this data as well, so we get the picture here. https://t.co/u0UeWZfJvA" / Twitter


    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Twitter: "I incl that last detail to illustrate that these are also HISTORICALLY Black communities, which means they have been impacted by racist policies like redlining for generations.
    This pandemic is happening in CONTEXT. & a lot of folks who deny racism have no idea what it really is" / Twitter


    Bernice King is a daughter of MLK Jr.
    Be A King on Twitter: "He didn’t die of natural causes.
    My father was murdered for working to end racism, war and poverty and for speaking truth to White people in power who didn’t want to share it.
    The evils he opposed then still exist now.
    #COVID19 is revealing just how much. https://t.co/zUAh9aaSQP" / Twitter

    Papa Don is in trouble with his own voters



    Other poll questions broken down in the link. None are looking good for Bonespurs.

    When conservatives realize they cannot win democratically, they will not abandon conservatism. They will abandon democracy.
