The black-white divide continues in coronavirus deaths

By MICHELLE MUELLER Contributing Writer ©The Recorder April 23, 2020 As of today, over 40 percent of COVID-19 deaths in Michigan are African Americans. Yet only 14 percent of Michiganders are black. Why the disparity? “We know that generations of racial disparities and inequality has a detrimental impact on the lives of people in the black community, where the health of our friends and family has been disproportionately impacted,” said Albion community leader Harry Bonner. “The coronavirus pandemic has shown this inequity to be particularly true, and because of that, we in the African American community need to make good choices right now – and take charge of our health from now on.
