Why go with the scientific, biology-based explanation when you can go with the pseudoreligious one?

GOD I can hear his whiny fucking voice as I read that tweet. “Excuse me, but actually you forgot to mention racism. Here’s a link where you can educate yourself.”

Black people also have higher rates of obesity and diabetes which explains covid mortality rate differences, but that is racist to point out. Must be because white doctors don't try as hard to save black patients...

Could this explain why black women have smellier farts? due to their gigantic booties?

They should look into if more cushion is for the pushing, why white men can't jump, and if its true if you go black you don't go back.

so in layman's terms. It's cause Black people have big noses or something?
lol, no.

Black people have higher amounts of a particular cell surface protein in nasal epithelial tissue. This protein helps covid take hold and spread...think covid fertiliser.

So virus replicates faster and has higher peak viral load #s before natural immunity can fully engage, which means more dead. Sad.
