Some politicians and pundits place the blame for high black mortality rates on the shoulders of black folks, claiming we’re not adequately embracing social distancing, or else vulnerable because of our health habits. Perhaps that’s part of it.
In reality, the story of black folks and the coronavirus started hundreds of years ago with systemic racism, medical bias, and lack of access to health care.

2 Chronicles 7:14
If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

and by his wounds, we are healed.
