CDC: Racism Is a Public Health ‘Epidemic’

Is racism a disease? Does racism fall within the jurisdiction of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)? Evidently, the Biden administration believes that to be the case.

As reported by The Washington Times:

Racism isn’t just immoral, it’s also an ‘epidemic’ and a public-health threat for the CDC to address.

“That’s according to the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, who vowed in a Thursday statement to spend more in non-White areas to counter that threat.

“Dr. Rochelle P. Walensky said that over the past year the COVID-19 epidemic had ‘illuminated inequities … and revealed for all of America a known, but often unaddressed, epidemic impacting public health: racism.’

“The CDC chief said that ‘What we know is this: racism is a serious public health threat that directly affects the well-being of millions of Americans … [and] as the nation’s leading public health agency, CDC has a critical role to play to address the impact of racism on public health.‘” [emphasis added]
