Somber reality

The news is out: [A Black doctor who said she received racist treatment while hospitalized with COVID-19 has died, her son told the New York Times. Dr. Susan Moore said her white doctor in Indiana “made me feel like I was a drug addict” and did not take her complaints of pain seriously. Her son told the Times that while she eventually received care that “adequately treated” her pain, the case shows, as Moore put it, “how Black people get killed, when you send them home and they don’t know how to fight for themselves.”]

This is the US now; same as it was 100 years ago, as it will be 100 years from today.
