The coronavirus pandemic has been disastrous for the working class worldwide. But its impact on people of color, on Black and Brown communities has the potential of being labeled genocide especially in the the U.S. prisons and immigrant detention centers.
From Michigan to Louisiana, the death rates are staggering; the disparity between rich and poor, the Black and Brown working class neighborhoods in New York City, is equally obvious, with Queens being at the epicenter of the crisis.
Rep. Judy Chu reports that attacks on Asian Americans are now about 100 per day, mainly due to the jingoistic rhetoric against China, labeling the coronavirus as the China or Wuhan virus.
A large number of front-line workers who are without PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) or hazard pay are people of color, about a third of them immigrants, including food servers at fast food and carryout restaurants, bus and MTA drivers, warehouse, postal and grocery workers and especially hospitals.
