From your own link above:



Mainly British. There were also Italians, French, ect ect. Britain America and Australia are only allowing those with corresponding passports to enter for treatments or quarantine. Will you ever answer my question? .

OK? So why is it they think they should be able to dock in other countries?


Because they’re humans in need of assistance.

And for someone in healthcare and a doctor to ask that question is why there is large disparity in health outcomes based on race.


Your deflection, and the focus of your question to me is perhaps the answer to my question.

Economists Demand Trump Immediately Lift Iran, Cuba, Venezuela Sanctions

https://truthout.org/arti...sanctions/

A group of economists and policy experts on Wednesday called on President Donald Trump to immediately lift the United States’ crippling sanctions against Iran, Venezuela, Cuba, and other countries, warning that the economic warfare — in addition to being cruel in itself — is “feeding the coronavirus epidemic” by hampering nations’ capacity to respond.

As I said before, The U.S and Australia are not under sanctions and still have worse health outcomes than some under sanctions. Particularly Cuba who are also leaders in biochemistry.
The disparity in health outcomes in the west is due to class and access to certain treatments. but overwhelmingly the disparity in health outcomes is race based. And if you are at the intersection of race and class your outcomes will be worse, and for black people, and particularly black peoples who are the intersection of race, class and colorism the outcomes are catastrophic.

Sorry it took me so long to reply, I have been at work.

I am NOT a Dr.

I work for a group of Dr.'s in a hospital.

In no way shape, or form, do we discriminate who gets care or who doesn't get care. Or even who has insurance or who doesn't have insurance.

Now don't put words in my mouth that I support the killing of Iranians.

Nope, what I do support is for the U.S. to be able to take care of it's own citizens and it's own country. We can not take care of ourselves let alone, people who hate our guts and teaches the young to kill us.

Why is it expected that the U.S. help everyone else, but I don't see people standing in line NOT to kill us?


Again, the docking of the ship. It is not our responsibility to dock that ship. Turn around and dock where you picked them up at.

Your excuse for that was the other nations have policies so that can't happen...so does our Nation.


Again as a hospital we can not turn patients away, it is against the law to turn patients away. Heck, people come in the ER and they don't even ask for an insurance card, so they don't even know if they do have insurance or not. We don't scan the card, until they are admitted.


But I tell you what, my dad was on a cruise and they were going thru the Panama Canal, he was having a heart attack, and they had to helicopter him off the ship and to a hospital there. He got nothing but some tests done that told them he did have a heart attack. He spent 7 days there, not able to get OUT of the country. AND they couldn't leave until he paid the bill in FULL, in CASH. We had to scramble and send a wire transfer of 30K, so he could leave. ... but I suppose that's ok with you because he was an American.

PennyPurple said:

No you didn't answer. Why were they not allowed to dock where they originated from?


Is because the British didn't want them back and wanted to push them off on other Countries? Because that's what it is looking like. And if that is the case, why is it the U.S. fault to not want them either? lol


The U.S. is not a cure all for other Countries who won't take their own back.


I don't think the sanctions should be lifted. Do you think that Iran really care about their people? If the sanctions were to be lifted, Iran still wouldn't help their people that are ill.

Your excuse for supporting the killing of Iranians is because you think someone else was probably going to do it first anyway? Based on some hypothetical situation you made up? Tell that to The Hague. Now we are getting somewhere, let it all out. Since you are a healthcare professional doctor I was actually more interested to your response to the question in reply #12. How does our society’s inherently nationalist and racial perspective/bias is affecting the health and live of non western people in combating Covid-19 within western countries and globally? The U.S and Australia are not under sanctions and still have worse health outcomes than those under sanctions. The disparity in health outcomes is due to class and access to certain treatments. but overwhelmingly the disparity in health outcomes is race based. And if you are at the intersection of race and class your outcomes will be worse, and for black people, and particularly black peoples who are the intersection of race, class and colorism. The outcomes are catastrophic. As the studies above revealed the disparity in health outcomes were not due to race, but racism and bias. Answer the question now? . [Edited 3/23/20 9:34am]

1. Australia and U.S. were stolen lands. The U.S. stole them from my people..the Native Americans, which I am 1/4 of. No disagreement there.


2. Are you kidding me? There are people here who aren't even citizens of the U.S. and they have better healthcare at NO cost to them, then I have in this very country. They pay nothing for it, nothing. Our government is even paying them with a monthly check and money for food. I don't get any of that from our government.


Everything in your post is your belief. It seems to me that you hate all western countries, but you expect us to step up in times of trouble to help.


Heck the U.S. is in such a mess it can't even take care of it's own.

Interesting response to all the information presented to you. This thread was started because many were annoyed and offended in the other one that non-westerners should be discussed during this time. The response in western nations is priority is to preserve the class and race divide Domestically and globally. It’s Pity for “non-westerners” at best, but love for western people. That how our society was built on and how it is preserved. The priority is preserving the racist and nationalistic dynamic of our society. The reaction to Covid-19 is that Priority for health and funding is given on race and class basis and bias. Australia and u.s were built on stolen land with slave labour. That stolen land and unpaid slave labour is where the wealth came from for battling Covid-19. And the distribution of funding to combat Covid-19 is about preserving that stolen wealth by funding to save racist or nationalist and racially bias organisations and businesses that were built on stolen land and unpaid slave labour they inherited. The modus operandi is Socialism and love for “western” people, and pity for everyone else. That has been the political reaction to Covid-19. It’s how our society works for the last few hundred years. Instead of funding “non western” communities and people within western countries, So that “non western” people can also have the same quality level of healthcare that western people are given in the same country. Instead they will fund grants for middle class and rich people to start charities, because you don’t want to empower those you pity. Or perhaps you are incapable of loving those unlike yourself and only capable of pity at best? On a global scale countries will be sanctioned until they are ravaged with Covid-19 This is how sanctions work. “Western” governments freeze assets, deny loans, militarily blow up infrastructure causing diseases and famine. Once these nations are completely ravaged and people have died and ravaged with diseases. You will send CNN, Fox News and Richard Branson with a ukulele strumming “we are the world” While handing out medication and food, so you can take over their countries AFTER you intentionally let the situation reach a point where they impoverished due to sanctions and war. It’s insincerity masking the evil of foreign policy. Love “non-western” people like you love your own, don’t pity us. Particularly when that pity is used for masking the evil that intentionally created the situation for your pity and subjugation to thrive. Without inequality people would have physical agency of their bodies, that also bothers certain people within western society and globally. That’s another story. https://www.tandfonline.c...19.1698297 poverty is a key underlying factor contributing to sexual exploitation and abuse by peacekeeping personnel In 2017 according to the associated press 134 U.N peacekeepers were found to be running a child sex ring in Haiti, luring poverty stricken kids with candy. https://m.youtube.com/wat...-z_b5_wSYW There were not only stories of women and girls being sexually assaulted by MINUSTAH but also of men and boys being similarly abused. https://truthout.org/arti...-in-haiti/ Haiti is only poor because they were required to to take out a loan and go into perpetual debt to pay European nations to stop slavery and compensate European nations for their loss of income that Haitian slaves provided them. These same “peacekeepers” will likely be deployed to the give out medication and food to battle Covid-19 instead of lifting sanctions or making reparations for slavery and return the loan repayments that these nations were forced to make to stop slavery. They could then combat Covid-19 and any other diseases, and also buy food and candy. Since you are a healthcare professional doctor I was actually more interested to your response to the question in reply #12. How does our society’s inherently nationalist and racial perspective/bias is affecting the health and live of non western people in combating Covid-19 within western countries and globally? .

Lifting sanctions and stoping war is not doing anything.
Think of it like “political self-isolation”, you can help by not doing anything.
That’s what you can do to stop people from dying right NOW. Stop and remove sanctions NOW and do nothing.

Most of the people entering “America” are from “South America”
They are indigenous peoples, just like indigenous people in south or Western Australia are still indigenous Australian.
(The british also tried partitioning and dividing Australia into different countries. The British and global corporations wanted Western Australia to be considered a different country.
South Africans are still Africans. Most are Bantu but are still African.

“South Americans” migrating to “north America” are people who are fleeing conflicts, sanctions or governments that “North America” imposed on them.
Either way they are still indigenous, even more, they are still human just like you.
You can help by political self isolation and doing nothing. That’s how you can help.


Apart from that you are either not reading or being purposely ignorant to deny that implicit bias, racism and bigotry within society doesn’t affect people’s health and lives.
Racism towards black people is actually “anti-blackness”.
It is the most potent form of racism.
It is the original form of racism that all others are measured by.
And there are levels to it, black people experience racism and bias differently based on colorism and class, which are often interlinked.
skin colour affects The level of racism and bias you will experience everywhere in the world.
The disparity in health outcomes for black people are worse than all other races.
And depending on if you are considered dark or light skinned will determine how you are treated and the level of racism and bias you will experience.
Even Black people acknowledge that black peoples can be hateful and bias toward other black peoples. Anti-blackness is unlike other forms of racism, it’s deep.

As you are a medical professional, for you to deny that implicit bias exists is perhaps a problem.
Sanctions and implicit bias kill people.
You have to acknowledge this.
These are facts, not opinions.
You can deny it but the facts are facts.


Sanctions kill.
Supporting sanctions is a choice. It’s a decision you make after being presented with all the information.
Either you support sanctions and war, or ‘politically self-isolate’ RIGHT NOW.

Are you not reading?
It says COVID-19, like all illnesses will impact people differently .
Race, class and colorism are some factors in the west which will affect peoples access to treatments, what types of treatments and how they are treated in the healthcare system.

Just like being under sanctions is also a factor on how Covid-19 will impact you. As sanctions are intentionally blocking countries from accessing medications to treat people.
Just like those in refugees camps will be impacted more. or people in Gaza which is basically a concentration camp where Coronovirus has just reached will be impacted more, and like those in concentration camps on the Mexican border will be impacted.

These people will be, and have been treated as sub-human.
Their lives matter also, and unless people don’t stop being nationalist and racist, and changes are made they will continue to suffer and die.

So oppose sanctions and war by ‘politically self isolating’ yourself by supporting the lifting of sanctions and do nothing.
and allow those who want to bring everyone to the table to do so, by “politically self isolating” yourself and removing sanctions and do nothing.
and allow people to not just live healthy lives, but do so with dignity and respect. As all humans deserve.

I wish you health, life, dignity and happiness.
And maybe perhaps you may consider that we just want that for everyone also, and that sanctions and war are an obstacle to achieving that.
that we just want the 2.5 billion under sanctions or military occupation, invasion or in concentration, refugee camps and those within western society who are “othered” to also be able to access health, life, dignity, respect and happiness.

These people under sanctions or that are being attacked militarily don’t hate you, our governments are inflicting this on them.
You probably have more in common and share the same goals and aspirations for a better life and world as they do.

we can make sure moving forward that we reshape conversations to be inclusive of all peoples, and that when we make political demands and decisions that they are also central figures in those demands.

All of us or none of us.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) rejected Tuesday Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's request for US$5 billion in order to fight the coronavirus pandemic in the Latin American country.


A loan for worthless “money” that is backed by resources or gold from countries such as Venezuela and all over Africa.
The IMF are a mafia gangster organisation. I mean that Metaphorically and literally.

Nations under sanction are still helping people in the countries that are sanctioning them.

I hit a nerve and some truths.
That’s all you got?

pray for some Cuban medicine.
Because your government will let you die before providing you with medicine and access to healthy foods.


The elites are somewhere in a bunker with access to Cuban medicine which they don’t want you to know about and smoking a Cuban cigar laughing at you.
If you want to be a court jester like everyone else go ahead.

For some people this is like every other day, no different at all.
Just another problem to add to the list.
But for you it’s the end of the world.
Which is a selfish and narcissistic way to view covid-19.

The lord has been on their way for a while, you just never cared before now.

Medical Professionals Fear COVID-19 Will Hurt Black Communities Most
Experts sound the alarm about socioeconomic disparities and inequities in testing and treatment.
Black medical professionals fear the Black community will be the hardest hit by the COVID-19 crisis


https://www.colorlines.co...HcuXk0ynxI


The intersection of race and health is raising alarms for some

All humans are equal but to reach egalitarianism we have to be honest and acknowledge that all humans are not treated equally.

”At the moment, there are over 70.8 million people forcibly displaced from their homes. The fast mobility of large populations is an inalienable part of humanity that is driven by drought, famine, earthquake, climate change, political opinion, massive violation of human rights, religious persecution, racial discrimination, ideological conflict, war, and pandemic diseases. People fleeing such a catena of crisis are called refugees, asylum-seekers, migrants and stateless persons and they are recognized under international law. I refer to these classes of people with the abbreviation ‘RAMS’ to signify their collective plight of flight or transit.
While the global COVID-19 pandemic unquestionably necessitates exceptional actions, many national governments have been executing their pre-pandemic policies of restrictionism and securitization driven by growing far-right nationalism and rabid populism across the world...”

I also wanted to add to this. Which I posted in the other thread.
covid-19 is a microcosm of the bigger picture.
We now know that approximately over 40% of all Covid-19 related deaths are African-Americans that is disproportionate as African-Americans make up approx 10% of the u.s population.
In some areas like Chicago it is 70% and in other areas it is over 80% of covid-19 related deaths were African-American.
The figures may be higher.

I wanted to add this article, because not only do African-Americans face implicit bias from medical professionals which impacts quality of treatment and access to treatment which we already know affects health outcomes and mortality rates, but also algorithms that hospitals use to determine who to provide treatment to is also bias.
The bias of A.I appear to be due to programmers own implicit bias.
Which I think is not only racist but class bias as it favours those who are more likely to visit a doctor for treatments and deny treatments to those who wouldn’t regularly be hospitalised.

A proportionate distribution of deaths across demographics wouldn’t be better and would not be a satisfactory solution, as these deaths are preventable if we eliminate racism both overt and implicit, and also class which are all contributing factors to why African-Americans and other minority groups are unnecessarily dying.




Racial bias in a medical algorithm favors white patients over sicker black patients

A widely used algorithm that predicts which patients will benefit from extra medical care dramatically underestimates the health needs of the sickest black patients, amplifying long-standing racial disparities in medicine, researchers have found.
