The CDC has declared racism a "serious public health threat". I know you can't stop giggling, but the important thing is that they aren't.

Of course, you can try asking them what that means. When they tell you that, say, eating red meat is a serious public health threat what they mean is that if you eat red meat too much it can have negative impacts on your health. They even produce studies to back up their claims (even if the methodologies are questionable and the results don't correspond with the real world). So is the CDC warning that people who believe in the inherent superiority of their race will suffer negative health outcomes as a result of their racism? Um, nope. Do they mean when Person A is racist they cause harm to Person B who suffers negative health outcomes, like saying "stabbings are a public health threat" or even "infectious diseases are a public health threat"? No, not that either. So they mean that when Person A is racist it makes Person B feel bad and they suffer negative health outcomes? Nope, not even that!

So what does it even mean? I hope you like word salad! [on the bright side it contains no red meat! -ed]
A growing body of research shows that centuries of racism in this country has had a profound and negative impact on communities of color. The impact is pervasive and deeply embedded in our society—affecting where one lives, learns, works, worships and plays and creating inequities in access to a range of social and economic benefits—such as housing, education, wealth, and employment. These conditions—often referred to as social determinants of health—are key drivers of health inequities within communities of color, placing those within these populations at greater risk for poor health outcomes.
Wait, what? For one thing, their "growing body of research" ends up being unfalsifiable far-left morons pretending to be researchers. For another...no, wait, actually I only need the one thing. The claim that "racism = inequity" may be "growing" but it certainly isn't research. They haven't provided actual correlation (minor problem) or a mechanism (minor problem) nor a mechanism to explain counterfactuals (minor problem). Blacks not receiving higher education is blamed on "racism" rather than "black kids don't attend junior high school long enough to learn anything". Blacks getting substandard housing is never blamed on a culture of entitlement or even something so prosaic as that blacks do a worse job than whites at maintaining their homes and lawns within their own income bracket. What they're guilty of in the scientific parlance is correlation without causation. It's politically expedient to claim niggers' lives aren't their own faults, and academia and the media are growing ever more comfortable with repeating these claims without bothering to subject them to any intense rigour.

Likewise the "social determinants of health": are they actual determinants or just coincidental effects of an existing discrepancy? Or worse, are they the antecedents of health and we're busy trying to cure cancer by forcing the cells back together? [bad analogy, it turns out: they're working on it. -ed] As you might suspect, research on this topic is...pretty sparse. Again, they don't like their assumptions challenged and only permit you to do so on the narrowest of grounds.

So the CDC has declared "racism" as the easy answer. No actual soul (food) searching for the causes of racial disparities in outcome are required. Just blame whites and move on with your day! Obviously they're only doing this because the Wuhan Flu has made it politically expedient to call everything a "public health crisis" (except, you know, cultural factors inspiring girls to get sex change operations: you can't call that a public health crisis or even a crisis or even talk about it). So let's let them do that and then force them to fight it our way, not theirs. In fact, they've even given us the language we need to solve this health crisis.

Mandatory Racial Distancing

Remember, we're accepting their statements at face value. So when they claim American racism is "worse than ever" let's just nod and take action. Since (by their metrics) racism gets worse as diversity climbs, the solution surely enough is to maintain racial segregation. You know, in the same way that we banned freedom of movement and association to combat the Wuhan Flu. Obviously any steps you take to "solve a public health emergency" take precedence over all other considerations. So we've had to endure legislated social distancing, why not take it one step further and bring about racial distancing. Just until we've "flattened the curve" about inequity or whatever yadda yadda yadda.
