If you don't want to listen to the blah, blah, blah, then start a 1:40
Control the narrative, control the people and control the vote. Im really surprised so many people don't see the issue and don't care. I guess that's what happens when you are being controlled.
60 Minutes bungled the story by jumping to a conclusion that was not supported. They took it in a "pay to play" direction, when there is no demonstrated connection there. The story should have been, "the black community is under-served by the vaccination roll-out, why is that?" And the answer would be, demographically they are less co-located with Publix locations, which is one of the main places to get vaccinated in Florida. Goes right into the "food desert" issues that have been talked about for more than a decade. They whiffed on it, and manufactured a simpler narrative with a individual villain. And ignored the real issue with the rollout in Florida and many places.
I haven’t been super plugged into the COVID-related issues in Florida specifically, but I had not heard anything about the black community being underserved by the vaccination roll out down there. I had heard rumblings about how wealthier people were getting the vaccine at a higher clip than poor people, but it was pretty easily explained by age and the fact that the wealthier folks down there tend to be older while the poorer folks tend to be younger.
I don’t really know the age break down of African Americans living in Florida. Do they have a pretty even distribution of age groups, or do they skew younger or older?
CVS and Walgreen are everywhere.
People are very dumb. Guess who reports the news, dumb people. Its a circle of dumb people.
Up until recently, they were supporting a different mission is what the governor was saying. I expect access will improve as the 1A, 1B, etc groups have been taken care of and the focus turns to broader access.
Publix has like 830 something stores in Florida and they're all over the place there.
It's going to be hard to paint lack of availability as the reason for lower black percentages getting the shot.
Not entirely. News half ass reports it, random people tweet it, those who want to believe it, do, especially if the governor is a republican, the party of white supremecy, systemic racism and voter suppression.
Every time we travel through Florida I feel like they are everywhere. Not a big fan personally.
Their chicken fingers are really good
Plus private owned pharmacies, health departments, medical offices, and hospitals are giving the shot too.
Walgreens and CVS just couldn't give out the vaccine in store till LTC was fully completed due to federal contracts to give them at LTC before they could retail.
I'm not making stuff up. That some areas have little or no access to grocery stores is well established. Not everyone has easy or timely access to cars/transportation.

I live in a food desert according to the USDA.
This is the real story, and they missed it.
And I can have food or a vaccine in 15 mins and it's a bs term for the most part
You think rural folk who live in Utah, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Nebraska, Kansas, s and ndakota and on and on have easier access than urban areas?
That only effects African American people?
