This is my second Letter to America, following the murder of George Floyd.
Unfortunately since then, more people have died at the hands of police, so let’s start this by repeating that Black Lives Matter.
Today I want to talk about the importance of keeping this conversation going, to continue supporting the BLM movement, and to talk about a solution that I feel hasn’t been mentioned enough recently. PUBLIC HEALTHCARE.
When it comes to overall health, African Americans tend to do much worse than average, and that’s part of the US’s systemic racism.
Here’s the link to the article I’m referencing and quoting: https://pnhp.org/news/health-care-system-a-major-factor-in-african-americans-poorer-health/
