A mother in Alabama is urging others to get vaccinated after she said her son died following a months-long health battle after contracting COVID-19, saying her decision not to get vaccinated is one she deeply regrets.

Is she saying that dotard was wrong about hydroxychloroquine?

Just think if this idiot and her idiot son didn't watch or listen to Fox News, OAN, Qanon, or (R)Tard politicians for medical advice, her son would still be alive today.

Stupidity kills!

One less Trump/GQP voter.

#5. The biggest anti vax demographic is black people. Congratulations on cheering their deaths, racist.

"#5. The biggest anti vax demographic is black people."

No it's not.
Whites outnumber blacks about five to one in America. Or maybe it's six to one. Math is hard.

"The biggest anti vax demographic is black people."

Wrong, total nonsense, and a claim that doesn't pass the smell test.

Why lie? Are you trying to prove you'll say anything?

CNN produced a study about a month ago that indicated the vax-hesitancy is spread pretty broadly among a variety of demographics, including race. My recollection (which is fallible) is that anti-vax isn't really politically driven. The Biden administration messaging has been pretty terrible but other messaging and promotional tactics have been pretty horrible too.

That doesn't prove your claim.

Either post proof, or admit you made up your bs claim.

Claims the biggest anti vaccine demographic is black
Gets called
Then recalls some nonsense about a cnn poll, (cause you know, super legit to perceived librulls) that anti vaccine is "spread broadly"

This twit is just writing crap for the sake of writing crap

What a clown

CNN produced a study about a month ago...

It was posted here. The "study" (a poll actually) was conducted in May.

Try something a little newer.

The survey also shows Black adults, at 79%, are more apt than others to say they either have gotten a shot or will do so; it's 68% among whites and 70% among Hispanics. That's a positive sign after earlier, higher vaccine hesitancy among Black people.

The demographics with highest consistent hesitancy is rural, non-college educated evangelical whites. I'd add Republican but that would be highly redundant.

It's apparently more than fallible.

The break down is VERY CRYSTAL ------- CLEAR. If your county voted for Trump, the vax rates will be much lower than if it voted for Biden. And it's basically universal.

It's almost entirely politically driven.

The Anti-Vax is not political (but it is stupid). However, Anti-COVID Vax has 3 main camps - the political camp (let's call them trumpers), the traditional anti-vax crowd (note - there is overlap with the political camp) and finally the minority groups all to unwilling to trust medicine from the past and present experiences. (Note: the link is just a quick sample of why.)

Outside of the large towns, it seemed like endless abject poverty to me.

Last I heard the vaccination rate in Madison county (Huntsville) is still below 50%. That is the best in the state but we also put Mo Brooks in congress.

It's not politically driven on the left. For blacks, it's driven by mistrust of a government which abuses and oppresses them and gave them diseases on purpose before.

On the right, it IS politicaly driven, as it's all part of trump's cults total covid denial that started at the beginning of covid.

There are no leaders on the left, in politics or media, casting doubt on vaccines. The right is FILLED with people doing that, and helping covid thrive.

Sorry for your reading troubles.

Try again - what LEADERS on the left are spreading anti vaxxing sentiment like trump and tucker are doing on the right?

That is the anti-vax Trumper influence. There are a lot of smart people there many of them trended conservative over time even if they were imports that didn't start that way.

My county in Michigan is under 50% last I knew (48%). The main city - Saginaw is a big part of the reason as I have stated before. It is majority black at this point. I wish I would have taken a screen shot a couple weeks ago when the Michigan vaccination map had breakouts at much below the county level. The East side of Saginaw (East of the Saginaw River) was sub 35%. It is 80-90% black. Sure there are some people that say "I'm intending to get it." You tell them go to any pharmacy - they have it waiting for you and then the excuses start. I was just talking to the guy that mows most of the neighborhood. He was one of those intending to. When the conversation finished you could tell he wasn't going to get it. No way.

Don't get me wrong, most of the white sub-60 wood ticks I know have no intention of getting it and they launch into trump rhetoric if you even bring it up.

Many are technical people working in the NASA or defense areas. Technical people can be highly trained without being highly educated. I have known genius PhD level mathematicians who believed childish creationism stories.

That seems a little too... straightforward?

Do they believe the stories, or do they believe the moral of the story?

I'm not saying people don't believe the stories. But the point of religion isn't to believe the stories. It's to live by the moral framework which is constructed through the myth.

Morality is not a feature of fundamentalism. Don't confuse fundamentalism with main stream.

Morality is doing what is right no matter what you are told.
Religion is doing what you are told no matter what is right.

Perhaps if Trump had died from his bought with COVID a lot more of them would have thought harder about the vaccine.
