I hate to say “I told you so”…but I told you so.
I’ve been saying for weeks that the vaccine passport system would turn out to be a form of racism…and I was right! Despite the media’s focus on “deranged, anti-vax Trump supporters,” America’s minorities—especially the Black and Asian American communities—make up the biggest segment of the country’s unvaccinated population.
Black Americans are under 20% vaccinated.
Asian Americans are under 10% vaccinated.
They don’t trust the American government…and who can blame them, really? Both of these groups have gotten a raw deal from the American government in the past.
So, they’re refusing to get vaccinated, as is their right.
But that choice is going to be a problem in NYC, where Mayor Bill de Blasio is mandating that ONLY the vaccinated can go into bars, clubs, and restaurants.
Last week, at famed New York restaurant Carmine’s, violence broke out after a recently-hired hostess asked a group of Black women from Texas for their vaccine passports. The restaurant claims the women presented fake vaccination cards. The women–identified as Kaeita Rankin, 44, her niece Tyonnie Keshay Rankin, and Sally Rechelle Lewis, 49–claim that the hostess harassed them and used the N-word.
And that’s when the fight started.
The altercation spilled outside, where the three women attacked the hostess, leaving her with bruises and scrapes that warranted a trip to the hospital.
It also left Carmine’s with a bit of a black eye and a major crisis on its hands, because it didn’t take long for BLM to swoop in and protest the restaurant over the alleged racism.
When BLM Comes Calling
The organization quickly gathered outside the restaurant, claiming that the management was “racist” and engaging in a coverup for denying the N-word allegations, while chanting “F*** you, Carmine’s” and “Carmine’s are racist.”
BLM is also demanding that the restaurant release security footage of the incident, accusing Carmine’s management of “trying to cover up their employee’s actions by using the vaccination passport as an excuse.”
There is video of the incident, but it started after the exchanging of words, so it’s unclear for now whether either side of the story is accurate.
However, you can clearly see the women going after the hostess in the video, and that’s enough to lend credibility to the assault charges.
And the worst part is that I, along with many others, KNEW something like this was going to happen.
This is what I was trying to tell FreedomWire readers last week (read what I had to say HERE). Even if it’s not racist in intent, this new vaccine mandate is racist in execution, which means it will only cause more problems than it solves.
This is just one of the many incidents that have happened already…and it’s only the beginning.
These passport mandates are nothing more than a return to the segregation we did away with back in 1964.
Funny how it’s the Liberals who are bringing it back.
This is only going to get worse, folks…
“Segregation…not only harms one physically but injures one spiritually…It scars the soul…It is a system which forever stares the segregated in the face, saying ‘You are less than… You are not equal to’.” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
