Other states and cities including Milwaukee, Chicago, and Louisiana, are reporting that disproportionately high numbers of black residents are testing positive for COVID-19 and dying from the virus. Some would say Black Americans are more likely to be uninsured and likely to have jobs that require them to keep going into work in this crisis, risking exposure to the virus. Why are African Americans hit so hard by this virus?
