The most powerful female of 2015 and 2017 did not just take this opportunity for thanking but also delivered a powerful message. She talks about Black Americans who are disproportionately affected by the novel coronavirus. She mentions that 57 per cent of fatal cases are African Americans.
“Black Americans disproportionately belong to these essential parts of the workforce that do not have the luxury of working from home and African American communities have been severely affected in this crisis. Those with preexisting conditions are at an even higher risk. This virus is killing black people at an alarmingly high rate in America. A recent report from my home city of Houston, Texas, showed that COVID-19 deaths within Houston city limits, 57 per cent of fatal cases are African American.”
She ends by saying “We are one family, and we need you.” She wishes everyone to protect themselves and withstand this epidemic.
