If you look at the coronavirus death rates by race African Americans are completely over-represented:
Do you think that the disproportionate effect coronavirus had on black communities fueled the anger that led to the riots?
This was due to factors such as higher population density, lower quality hospitals in predominately black areas, being less healthy when infected due to living in food deserts and disproportionately working essential jobs (even though racist dip-shits have been complaning for years about how black people "need to get a job"). And on top of that you had whiny, entitled little snowflakes trying to compare measures meant to limit the spread of the virus like mask ordinances and shutting down beauty salons to "living in a police state" (the irony shouldn't be lost on anyone). Still others talked about how fighting the pandemic should be up to individuals which is easier said than done when you have limited means to do so.

So do you think that a feeling of being abandoned by the rest of the country in this time of crisis played a big part in fueling the protests and riots? Although I suspect having seen the impact the virus had on their communities may have played a big role in people taking measures to limit transmission during the protests (hence we didn't see spikes in cases in locations the protests took place).
