The rapper’s question stirred up a debate in her comment section. Read the responses given to her question by some of her followers below:
mommynata_: "It’s less scientific and more statistics. Poor/ “Urban” areas are vastly underfundedin means of medical care and health/wellness products. Most workers deemed “essential” are from those same places and have to go to work. But that’s making it short"
azurechic1: "We have more lifestyle diseases like diabetes, heart disease etc...that lower our immunity to fighting the disease. Also, we do a lot of the "essential / low paying jobs" that require us to keep going out and not stay at home, therefore exposed to coronavirus."
darlingg.nikki: "Healthcare disparities. Same reason why black women die during pregnancy and labor at a higher rate."
starrbarbie: "More underline diseases such as, but not limited to ... high blood pressure, asthma, hypertension, diabetes, high cholesterol etc.."
