How The Devastation of Covid-19 Exposes America’s Disdain For The Needy

It’s hard to remember what it felt like to step outside and roam around with blissful nonchalance, without the hovering danger of either getting infected or infecting others with a deadly virus that has killed over 130,00 Americans.

Imagine that!

This inexplicable scenario is able to occur thanks to the fine print attached to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and how it was able to allot about $1.7 million to each of the 43,000 recipients via those pesky tax breaks.

“Someone wrongly seized on this health emergency to reward ultrarich beneficiaries, likely including the Trump family, with a tax loophole not available to middle class families. This net operating loss loophole is a loser that should be repealed.”

It’s hardly shocking to assimilate the fact that generational wealth, accumulated by the nefariousness of descendants of white slave masters, would continue to flourish from similar historical tactics, that aim to uphold the rulebook of white supremacy by ensuring that those stolen privileges remain unchallenged.

And as we grapple with the daunting task of making necessary adjustments to the chaotic landscape of intimidating unfamiliarity, we also have to contend with how Covid-19 exposes America’s very transparent disdain for the needy.

Trump and his henchmen are willfully sacrificing the the safety of America’s children with the non-negotiable requirement for schools to reopen on schedule regardless of the imminent dangers that lie ahead.

It’s hard to keep track of the daily reminders that exacerbate the hostile climate of an ailing nation on the brink of another major catastrophe.

But no matter how fatigued we are from the relentless companion of everyday conundrums, we can’t escape the documentation that highlights the burning hot spots across the country, fast and furiously succumbing to the re-manifestation of Covid-19.

The facts are undeniable!

What we have here is the very definition of how and why The United States of America was never “united” to begin with, and now that the much-needed expertise and guidance of Dr. Anthony Fauci, has been willfully curtailed by The White House — all we can do is helplessly watch this harrowing ordeal play out.
