      Our new QB looked good against admittedly weak competition.  At least he took care of business.  I’m watching him closely because I’ve never really been a fan of him.  If I was in the market for a graduate transfer QB this summer I would have pushed a little harder to turn Braxton Miller.  It still shocks me how quickly Ohio St. moved on from him.  That guy was 2x Big Ten player of the year and now he’ll be used in gimmick/specialist type role.  I digress……As good as Golson looked I like how Jimbo called the game.  Our offense should flow through Cook & Pender(get Patrick in there more as year progresses).  Use the run the set up the pass.  In the past, Jimbo stubbornly used the opposite approach.  We have a turnover prone QB in a new system and a heisman caliber RB in Cook(paired with Pender as a nice side kick). So lets continue to pick our spots with Golson and keep his attempts in the twenties for a while and instead ride Cook & Pender.  I thought first team defense looked good and it was primarily special teams that set up their offense to do anything.  Do we have anyone that can catch a punt?  >:( Cripes, all the 4 and 5* skill guys we bring in and the PR game is always an adventure.

      i think braxton millers shoulder is toast.  i do expect him to have a big year – meyers new percy.i didnt see the game, but it seemed that it took FSU a little while to get rolling?  golsons numbers looked nice.  i think the team will go as far as cook can take them.as for PR, the UF has VH3 - seems dumb as well.how did your OL look?

      Left side Johnson and Are, fairly strong.  Right side, is a WIP (work in progress.)

      Perfect game plan executed successfully by FSU.  Ran mostly the first half. Passed mostly the second half.  Defense looks better but with the quick release short passing it was hard to have any chance at sacking the Texas State QB.  JMO but I predict Texas St will contend for the Sun Belt title.  Golson has a real quick delivery that gets the ball there fast.  No real injuries but still not what would be considered a tough opponent.  Will be interesting to see how USF does this weekend as they blew out FAMU in their opener.

      will they show the replay of this game anywhere?  I missed the game but caught the highlights.  Looked like the Dalvin Cook show.  That guy is a legit heisman candidate.  Best back we’ve had in years.  keep giving this guy 20 carries a game and he will smash the school rushing records.  Not a fan of 30+ carries though but I i didn’t see the game.  Sounds like he was the only one making plays and we needed him to put the game away.  My deal split would be Cook getting in the early twenties in carries with Pender adding another 10-12 carries a game.  Again, lean on the run and keep Golsons attempts down in the mid twenties rather than let him sling it around.

      It should be up on YOU-tube later this week. It will be on ESPNU at 3:30Pm today Might be shown a few more times during the week. check that channel for other viewings.


      Fisher will probably take the training wheels off Golson this week against BC.  Wisely he has let him mostly play game manager for the first 2 games.  His receivers dropped quite a few this weekend and FSU looked very ordinary the first half except for Cook's one run the first half.

      defense looks good.  as for the offense…….glad we have a bye week to iron out some things.  As much as I like being more run oriented this year it frustrates me at times that apparently Golson can’t be trusted to throw the ball in certain situations.  Like going to half time with multiple time outs instead of tying to get the ball back with enough time to run a two minute drill.

      Fisher at this time is playing to win and not lose games by taking too many chances.  That works when you play teams much lower in talent but when the tougher competition begins it can be problematic.    Think it is about time to loosen the reins a bit on Golson with more shots up field.  Last week the much maligned P Beatty was the MVP. Couldn't have come at a better time.  It will be interesting to see how much trouble BC has with Northern Ill especially since BC lost their starting QB.  BC's biggest problem is they are so one- dimensional. Seems they can only run.

      BC has nothing on offense. Even vs NIU they couldn't lean on them and force their will. It's going to be a long season in Chestnut Hill. They need to hit the recruiting trail hard. Hockey season can't come soon enough.

      agree/DisagreeAgree their offense is anemic.    Disagree that this keeps them from winning games.  BC is 3-1 and currently leads the nation in total defense. NI did about the same against them as the they did against the number one team in the country Ohio State  who won 20-13  while BC won 17-14.  So is Ohio State really over rated?That being said unless FSU starts cranking out an offense that scores far more they could be in trouble.

      They played Maine, Howard, and NIU…. NIU only thing that’s remotely any kind of challenge. Teams that can pass are going to smoke BC. The only thing that will keep the score down is the apposing coaches not worried about BC mounting an offense. BC played one proper opponent, FSU, and got shut out.

      Don't disagree at all.  My only point was comparing their game against NI with Ohio States game against the same opponent.  It could be said that Ohio State and BC had comparable performances against NI.  That is all.FSU didn't allow BC closer than the FSU 39 yard line the whole game.    That being said currently FSU's offense is not looking good or dominating.  The OL and Golson appear confused and tentative which should be expected. BC's defense is keeping them in games.

      Transitive property just isn’t a thing in college football. I'm trying to think of who can pass on BC's schedule, clemson maybe?  BC is going to be in a lot of games, but that has way more to do with no one being scared of their offense and not a lot of opponents that are going to chuck the ball around the yard than it does with the outstanding athletes and incredible defensive system BC runs. I'm a fan so I gotta stop picking on my guys. The whole point being FSU fan has two choices, hey we we're never worried about BC's offense so didn't have to risk throwing or just go with damn we can't pass and that needs to get fixed.

      Transitive property just isn't a thing in college football. Correct! Now go tell the playoff committee and poll voters! They didn't get the message!The "beauty contest" is more conflicted and biased than ever!  How great? would CFB be if the 5- P-5 champions and 3 at large teams made the playoffs every year!  Hopefully, I will still be alive to see the day!Deciding championships by a popularity vote has always been the worst methodology ever in cfb.  Only Div One CFB continues with this most corrupt process. A 4 team playoff is progress but until the 8 team one arrives it remains a flawed system.

      According to Cook it was indeed touch and go until game time and then he indeed did touch the ball and GO!  Best running performance against Miami in the history of the series.  Saw where Miami and UF are negotiating to play a game at the Citrus bowl in a couple of years.  Great Win for FSU.  Hopefully, Miami won't fall apart after this game because they do have a good QB in Kaaya and a explosive offense.  Great in state rivalry game still can't see why UF doesn't play them every year?  Hey UF wouldn't have to ever leave the state!

      miami fell apart last week when the lost to cincy.  miami folded up shop once they took the lead late, fsu played as if theyve been there.  newberry with 2 batted passes late was impressive.  fsu got real lucky that cook fell right on his own fumble.how UF handles fournette this weekend will show a lot of how UF will play fsu i think.UF doesnt play them every year because it isnt financially a good decision.

      Wow Dalvin Cook is a beast.  To do what he did with a bum hammy is really impressive.  That guy is so tough to stop if he gets a seam.  watching him torch Miami again was a thing of beauty.  If we can keep him healthy he will smash all the school rushing records.  Believe it or not it isn’t Jimbos MO to ride one guy but a combo of Cooks legit heisman potential and Pender being banged up forces Jimbo to lean on him more than he would with a starting back in most years. Still the hammy is something to keep an eye on especially since he won’t really be able to give it what it requires to heal fully: rest.  Hope Pender can get back soon to take a couple drives off Cooks plate each game.  Where is freshman RB Jaquez Patrick?  This guy was a HS monster and smashed Orlando area HS rushing records and was an early enrollee too. the last couple weeks with Pender in hospital this was his shot to get some reps and he hasn’t yet. My overall take on the game was that its always good to beat Miami but we should have put this one away earlier.  IIRC, in 2nd and 3rd qtr we had four 1st and goal opportunities and came way with only 9 pts in those 4 opportunities.  Repeatedly settling for field goals in the red zone is playing with fire. Need to tighten up there.  Just a couple tds in those situations and we would have closed this one out earlier. I thought Golson looked good. Not spectacular but efficient.  I wish Jimbo would use his legs more though with more rollouts, option runs, QB draws, etc.  We finally called a few of those yesterday and had some success.  Defensively I was disappointed that we allowed UM to shred us through the air.  Secondary is suppose to be a strength.  We had good pressure and got some hits on him but their QB was very good at hanging in there and making throws.  Still we had a couple shots at INTS and dropped the ball.  Hunter was beaten in coverage repeatedly.  How often did we give up a 3rd down conversion  on a 3rd and 7  type play because we gave up too much cushion?  On too many 3rd downs it looked like Kaaya was playing catch with his WR in a backyard somewhere. Cripes, you know where the sticks are, defend the field accordingly.

      Yeah preach! Say I was just put in charge, 11(?) FBS conferences get auto bids, 5 at large, games at home stadiums till championship. I'm very interested to see what would happen over the years when lowly Sun Belt schools get to go, hey, we're going to be in the playoffs.  How will that impact the recruiting vs middling or lower level P5 schools.  Frankly it might put a pretty big hurt on BC but hey, they mostly don't care so..... if they can't win the recruit with We give you a top tier education then so be it. Frankly I don't mind arguing over the championship. The issue is since the BCS too many dolts think that's a real thing. Hey, they won the BCS. pffft. Last year with only four teams we immediately saw it has always been a farce.

      I know finances quite well and a Nationally broadcast sell out game against Miami in any venue is more valuable than a UF vs Chattanooga game at home with empty seats.After you subtract the payout out to Chattanooga and the smaller attendance and little if any TV coverage and a national audience not the least bit interested I would say the Miami game is far more attractive which is course why UF is negotiating with Miami to play in a neutral site ( Citrus Bowl) in Orlando.  Obviously the financial excuse for not playing Miami is BS considering the current negotiation.  They don't play Miami every year because they prefer a guaranteed win ( despite GS! LOL) over very possible loss to a heated in state rival.As Bobby said he wanted engraved on his grave stone... He played Miami.  Also, I would include UF since they are the most dominant SEC team over the last 25 years with 8 SEC titles I believe.  Unlike Florida both FSU and Miami don't fear going outside the state to play other P-5 teams.

      Then I'm sure both of those schools strength of schedule is much harder annually than UF's, right?What's that?  They aren't?  Not even close?  Weird.....

      Clemson threw for 420 yards and a few TDs.  Yep. Cook seem to be on a run count.  As long at that guy can go you're in it. Rest that kid up the best you can and have him ready for clemson. Should be a great game and a great one vs UF as well. Anyone else just like WTF every time they see Baylor in the polls?

      boy cook is impressive.  we will have to nurse him along but that guy at 80% is better than almost anyone else.  Love that we are getting Kermit Whitfield the ball more.  That guy has track star speed.  Need to have a special pkg of plays each game designed to get him the ball is space.  We were a little sluggish in the 1st half but poured it on in the 2nd.  Take acre of business next two week and then a HUGE matchup at Clemson.

      Bobby in his own words:I am asked why we joined the ACC instead of the SEC back in 1992. We were invited to join both conferences the same year. Let me first say that we (FSU) had applied for membership in the SEC for the previous 20 to 25 years but were turned down every time. When we made our decision, the people making those decisions preferred the ACC for academic reasons.What part did I play in it? I merely agreed to whatever those responsible decided. I had always been an SEC fan.After joining Bowden readily admitted that it was easier path to a MNC by being in the ACC.Also, stated that it would be nearly impossible to ever go undefeated in the SEC.Sorry Bobby but many teams in the SEC have gone undefeated since FSU joined the ACC in 1992.

      well that one hurt.  playing with fire all year and finally paid the price. the offense is cook or bust.  Golson is mediocre and Jimbo is unwilling to take chances with him downfield for fear of turnovers.  i don’t hate golson like some nole fans, but he just isn’t really that good.  i think we tried to keep the playoff window open a bit longer by bringing in a graduate transfer QB. Perhaps we would have been better served in a rebuilding year(especially with a green OL) to take our lumps this year by playing a QB with more eligibility with an eye towards making another playoff run in 2016. next year we will have to start all over at QB again.

      well, cook is getting his rest.  but golson also?  i dont think losing golson will be that bad, mcguire seemed to play at the same level last season.  but cook out?  is pender back?  does syracuse lose a defensive battle?  i definitely think fsu wins but syracuse has played some teams tough and lost.or does fsu finally put together a complete game and knock their socks off?  that wouldnt suprise me.

      if you are jimbo you really need to think about making a move at QB. It was so refreshing this weekend to see an FSU QB actually attempt passes longer than 10 yds.  we have been just getting by with Golson.  He don’t make plays.  He isn’t bad just not that good.  Too quick to leave the pocket and check down.  I keep hearing how mobile Golson is but we certainly don’t take advantage of that.  We call very few designed QB runs and Golson doenst seem interested in tucking the ball and picking up a 1st down on 3rd and 5.  Whats the point of having an athletic QB if we don’t take advantage of it?  Reminds me of the EJ Manuel days when there were rumors that he wasn’t running because he wanted to show scouts he was a pocket passer.  Makes me wonder what Jimbo promised Golson:  did he claim he could make him into an NFL QB in a couple months?  If its me I'd roll with Smag, the guy who has been in the system for multiple years and who can push the ball down field to take advantage of the defenses who will be loading up the box to stop Cook & Patrick.

      I think many have changed their opinion of Maquire but one game is not necessarily a trend.Personally I think Golson should start but am cool with either.  I think using both Patrick and Cook in the backfield together could really open up the passing game for both QB's.  The good old I formation play action may need to be renewed. Thunder and lightning!

      Jimbo almost screwed it up by switching back to Golson.  Plain and simple Smag is the better passer and its not close.  The offense flows much better with him in there.  I get it with Golson…..Jimbo was trying to reload rather than rebuild and brought in a grad transfer QB hoping to keep the train moving and it didn’t pan out.  Golson has been mediocre all year but because we were winning Jimbo couldn’t justify benching him.  The concussion gave him a good excuse to get Smag in there, while at the same time leaving the door open to go back to Golson if Smag struggled, like he did against Clemson.  But I would not have started Golson this week for the same reason he didn’t start the prior two weeks:  He doesn’t have a full grasp of the offense and he can’t or won’t push the ball downfield.  From now on Smag should start no matter what happens.  He has eligibility left so get him the reps/experience. Really nice defensive effort too BTW.  Its awesome watching James and Ramsey race each other to the ball.

      The SEC least was very down this year and except for Tennessee no one looks like competition for UF next season. with 3 OC patsies next year the UF team can write 8 wins to the bank.FSU was rebuilding this year and frankly I am unimpressed with Maguire.  Far too erratic.Might be the worst FSU QB in the last 30 years.  If UF had any kind of offense this game could have gone differently.Going to be an interesting competition in the Spring.

      UF should be embarrassed by how ill prepared they were for FSU.  This was there year to win, move on, and try to win a down SEC and a down Bama team.  I’ve never heard the Gators chirp more than this week.  Night game in the swamp, record crowd, SEC E champs, a chance to move into the playoff mix, made up story about Jimbo leaving to distract FSU……………….loss.  If UF was going to beat FSU, this was the year to do it.

      "made up story about Jimbo leaving to distract FSU"Just like the false Winston narrative there are fan bases and the media that will do anything to push their agenda against FSU.    Suggesting Fisher is on the short list of available HC candidates for programs like Texas LSU etc...  WTF!  Total BS! Why would Fisher want to leave FSU for a lesser program?  Fisher at LSU?  Delusional! As bad as the agenda driven media on the topic sadly there are FSU fans so filled with inferiority complexes they actually buy into the tripe.Funny how Fuente one of the more desirable HC candidates is already locked into the VT program that just had Beamer retire.  Sometimes the big paycheck with too much booster involvement is not the most desirable destination.  JMO but if any program that has Boosters calling the shots is the last place I would seek employment were I a high profile Head Coach.

      really hope smag takes advantage of the time between now and the bowl game to work on his craft.      i’d like to feel better about the QB position for next year. A strong effort in the bowl game would set my mind at ease.    if smag doesn’t rise to the occasion and start in 2016 we will be very green at QB (Francois RSF, Henry F, Costantino RSS).QB  is really our only question mark in 2016 and thats obviously a big deal.  After so much turnover from last year to this year we will return the entire starting offense next year, including Cook.  Need a QB who can manage the game and get the  ball to our playmakers. C'mon smag....

      ehhhh……Houston……The worst possible matchup.  I was rooting hard for Notre Dame or even Iowa.  Not that Houston is a bad team but its a scary matchup for us.  An underdog that can really score.  We will be favored and if we take care of business should beat them decisively but thats the problem.  Kids are kids and getting them up for the Cougars isn’t the same as getting them to play the Irish.  Hope we don’t underestimate them and start slow. This is like a Thursday night road game against NC State or G-Tech.  These type of games always spell trouble for the favored team.

      agree/disagree  As long as FSU stays away from tons of mistakes they should be fine. That being said Houston can make it a close game if they play incredibly inspired ball.  They did lose to UConn and had several close games. UL Memphis and Cincinnati.  Like UF the ball bounced well for them.  I do agree FSU can't afford to be over confident because Houston with an inspired effort and Maguire playing erratically certainly could be problematic.  FSU should be able to run and pass the ball well against Houston and likewise should do a decent job against the Houston offense.  Biggest problem is keeping their QB in the pocket and not allow his running to be a huge factor.

      Cook was absolutely robbed.  I am not saying he deserved to win, but he deserved to be there.  More than 3 people have been invited to NY in the past.  I think ole boy from Stanford should have won it, and he probably would have if he started the season off hot.

      Next year’s Heisman will have the best final four potentially in the history of the Heisman.  Could actually be an exciting race.  I am calling Cook, Watson, McCaffery, and Fournette right now but who knows.  If  it’s close at all Fournette will win because of ESPN.

      One thing certain FSU will face its most challenging schedule in years in terms of last years opponents won/loss records and returning starters.  The Miami game is the perfect set up for the Canes. Saw recently that Kaaya is consideredthe #2 prospect behind Watson in the 2017 NFL draft.  FSU's defense will have to play one of its best games.  Fortunately, there are questions on the Miami defense.

      In Louisiana, African Americans accounted for 70% of COVID-19 deaths, while comprising 33% of the population. In Michigan, they accounted for 14% of the population and 40% of deaths, and in Chicago, 56% of deaths and 30% of the population. In New York, black people are twice as likely as white people to die from the coronavirus.

      Comorbidities like hypertension and diabetes, which are tied to COVID-19 complications, disproportionately affect the black community. But the alarming rates at which COVID-19 is killing black Americans extends beyond these comorbidities and can be attributed to decades of spatial segregation, inequitable access to testing and treatment, and withholding racial/ethnicity data from reports on virus outcomes.

      “There is nothing different biologically about race. It is the conditions of our lives,” said Camara Phyllis Jones, MD, PhD, former president of the American Public Health Association. “We have to acknowledge that now and always.”

      Fewer Protections to Prevent Exposure

      Predominantly black U.S. counties are experiencing a three-fold higher infection rate and a six-fold higher death rate than predominantly white counties.

      Many of these communities are located in poor areas with high housing density, limited access to education, and high unemployment rates. Low socioeconomic status is independently a risk factor for poorer health outcomes and is forcing some individuals residing in these communities out of their homes and into the workforce.

      African Americans are overrepresented in frontline jobs like the postal service or home health aid industry, leading to higher rates of exposure, Jones said.

      In New York City, the national epicenter, 75% of frontline workers are people of color.

      “People are starting to recognize these people as being part of the essential workforce and those people are disproportionately black and brown,” Jones told MedPage Today. “We have not honored the essential nature of that work, just as we have not equipped respiratory technicians, nurses, and doctors in the hospital with the [personal protective equipment] they need.”

      During a White House press briefing on April 10, U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams, MD, MPH, told people of color to “step up and help stop the spread so that we can protect those who are most vulnerable.”

      Asking individuals to shoulder the burden of COVID-19 response assumes they have the privilege of participating in social distancing measures and remote working, and ignores the environment they are living in that plays such a large role in determining the types of choices they are able to make, said Lawrence Brown, PhD, of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Population Health Institute.

      “When we say ‘at-risk populations,’ we aren’t just looking at the people, we are looking at the conditions that people are placed in and the health outcomes that are a reflection of that,” Brown told MedPage Today. “We owe it to ourselves to put personal responsibility into a spatial and historical context.”

      Legacy of Spatial Segregation

      African Americans shoulder a higher burden of chronic disease, with 40% higher rates of hypertension and 60% higher rate of diabetes than white Americans, both of which have been tied to negative COVID-19 outcomes.

      This is partially because spatial segregation has forced many into housing areas with limited access to healthy foods, clean air, and green space. These social determinants of health are contributing to poorer COVID-19 outcomes among people of color.

      “Once infected, we carry the burden of living in disinvested communities,” Jones said.

      Where these vulnerable populations are living cannot be separated from the COVID-19 outcomes being reported, and speak to a long legacy of spatial and occupational segregation, Brown said.

      Take Shelby County, Tennessee, for example, which deployed testing in the east side, where most healthcare facilities were located, when it saw its first uptick in cases, Brown said. But the majority of the county’s African-American population resides in the west side of the county, and had to travel further to access testing. Once COVID-19 demographic data was released and this disparity was realized, more testing was deployed to underserved areas.

      Avoiding Policies That Penalize Black Populations

      Black individuals who test positive for COVID-19 may face disparate outcomes when seeking treatment as well. Anecdotally, African Americans have reported avoiding treatment because they fear missteps, or even being turned away when they do seek treatment.

      Bias was shown to permeate the medical treatment of black patients long before the pandemic, said Junia Howell, PhD, a sociologist at the University of Pittsburgh.

      “[There is] both historical and contemporary discrimination in the healthcare system, which can’t be separated from employment and racial segregation,” Howell told MedPage Today.

      Amidst ventilator and personal protective equipment shortages in hospital settings, many states and professional organizations have begun to release Crisis Standards of Care guidelines, which, designed to help physicians rationing equipment to patients who need it most, are typically driven by potential patient life years saved.

      But these algorithms, without controlling for the higher burden of chronic disease in African-American communities, can be inherently biased, said Jossie Carreras Tartak, MD, a resident working on the frontlines at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

      “If you’re saying people with comorbidities are going to be penalized when it comes to resource allocation, you’re still in effect penalizing these people of color,” Tartak told MedPage Today.

      Deploying Equitable Containment Measures

      To reduce disproportionate COVID-19 outcomes, public health officials must identify who is at risk and who has been exposed through testing and contact tracing efforts.

      Louisiana, the first state to begin reporting deaths by race, launched a health equity task force on April 24. Similar programs designed to bridge the gap of services provided to racial/ethnic minorities have recently been created in Michigan, Massachusetts, and other states.

      Public health interventions must involve members of these at-risk communities so that they are tailored to meet their needs, said Rebekah Gee, MD, MPH, a member of the Louisiana task force and CEO of Louisiana State University Health Care Services in New Orleans.

      For example, when the state initially launched drive-through testing, it became clear — when one 90-year-old woman walked a mile in the heat to get tested — this would not be accessible to many low-income individuals who didn’t have cars, Gee said.

      So public health officials targeted zip codes where the highest rates of COVID-19 deaths were reported and deployed testing there.

      “We are seeing a lot of success with approaches that are more place-based and reflective of where the data shows us people need care,” Gee told MedPage Today.

      Including community leaders in areas hit the hardest by the virus in policy making will be particularly important as states begin to reopen businesses and loosen stay-at-home measures.

      As Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) forges ahead with plans to reopen tattoo parlors, hair salons, and bowling alleys, for example, the state’s National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) chapter criticized that decision, saying it would disproportionately affect people of color. Newly released CDC data showed more than 80% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients in the state were black.

      The timing of the release of race/ethnicity data and states reopening may also make African Americans most affected by the virus feel they are not adequately being considered in the COVID-19 response, Jones said. “To us, it is another signal that maybe our lives are not valued.”

      A Lack of Data

      Deploying high numbers of population-based testing and contact tracing in a public health approach will allow states to predict where they need to allocate resources, get in front of the virus, and control its spread, Jones said.

      However, evidence-based interventions are only possible when there is data to inform them. Public health officials need to know who is at highest risk, and where, to deploy containment measures.

      On March 27, Democratic lawmakers called on Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar, the CDC, and other federal agencies to release COVID-19 race/ethnicity data. The American Medical Association, joined by six other professional organizations, followed suit with a letter addressed to Azar on April 8.

      It wasn’t until the first week of April that the CDC began including race/ethnicity data in its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR).

      By April 17, racial data was still missing from 75% of CDC data, according to a report on racial disparities and COVID-19 released April 30 by the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee (DPCC). About half of U.S. states have yet to release demographic data on deaths.

      The federal government may withhold racial data in part because it can be misinterpreted and used to back racist policies, Howell said. On the other hand, withholding the data can meet that same end, exposing the inequities already present in U.S. systems.

      “This amount of racial inequality is always with us and we rarely care until it comes up in our face and then we say it’s shameful and ask who’s fault it is,” Howell said.

      In the DPCC report, lawmakers pushed for guaranteed equitable access to testing and vaccines as they move forward in clinical trial development. The authors of the report also said they would introduce legislation requiring federal agencies to release demographic COVID-19 data and establish a Heroes Fund to increase pay and protection for frontline workers.

      Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) introduced a bill earlier this week that would create a national health equity task force to address these disparities.

      The virus may be exploiting inequities in the U.S., but it does not discriminate by race, and will spread to all communities if it is not contained in the most vulnerable populations, Jones said.

      “These excess numbers of black people dying from COVID-19 … are piling up so fast we can’t normalize it and we can’t ignore it,” Jones said. “This happens again and again where the nation wakes up and then falls back into what I call the slumber of racism denial. What we cannot afford to do as a nation is fall back.”
