    Vermont prioritises BIPOC over white people for COVID-19 vaccine

    https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-...vid-19-vaccine

    Vermont has decided the following groups are the priorities for COVID-19 vaccination:
    People 50 years and older



    People 16 years or older with high-risk health conditions



    Parents and primary caregivers of children with high-risk health conditions



    Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC)



    English language learners and people in immigrant/refugee communities



    Health care personnel and residents of long-term care facilities



    People who work in the public safety system



    School staff and child care workers

    I asked the chatbot:

    • Is it constitutional to prioritise BIPOC over white people?

    Which did not answer my question.

    Is this, in fact, Constitutional?

    What, all five of them?

    Seriously, that list is extremely discriminatory and bigoted. So, par for the course for the Left Wing.

    Then just "identify" as whatever. If denied, it's an easy lawsuit.

    Shouldn't it be a lawsuit anyway?

    Well, yeah. But a way to end Wokeness is to abuse its absurdities.

    The list contains groups that clearly should get priority--such as people over 50 or with high-risk health conditions.

    I wonder why Vermont did not consider 'men' as a high risk group, given that men are more likely to die from COVID-19. But that would be bad discrimination.

    Seeing that Vermont is probably around 95% white (looked it up, 93%), this isn’t a bad idea at at all.

    What is the deal with all the bed wetting by some people? They root around for news like this like a pig for truffles. They find a story on their White Rage news aggregator and start pissing their pants and snorting.

    Oh, I have to share this with everyone! This’ll prove white people really are the victims here.

    What makes the State discriminating by race "not a bad idea at all"?

    What makes you so angry about being alerted to Vermont's discrimination by race against white people?

    This is why BIPOC are prioritized:

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

    Poverty exists not because we cannot feed the poor but because we can't satisfy the rich.

    According to this link:
    https://www.cdc.gov/pcd/issues/2020/20_0247.htm

    the death rate from COVID-19 was 2.4x higher in men than in women, which is as high as the BIPOC (excluding Asian) compared to white people.

    Would you support Vermont adding men over 16 as a priority group, based on morbidity data?
