Dr. Anthony Fauci, the chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, spoke out this week to claim that the COVID-19 pandemic has revealed that America is a racist country.

Fauci Calls Out America As Racist

While giving a speech at the graduation ceremony for Emory University via webcast, Fauci claimed that the coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated “the undeniable effects of racism” in America.

“COVID-19 has shown a bright light on our own society’s failings,” Fauci said, going on to add that the virus “has uncovered a stark reality and failing of our own society.”

He went on to add that “social determinants,” which critical race theory claims are racial disparities engraved into American society, were exposed during the pandemic.

Fauci Doubles Down

Specifically, he said that the pandemic showed that minorities have more limited access to healthcare, claiming that this makes them more susceptible to the disease. Fauci also said that minorities are more likely to have chronic health problems, making them even more susceptible to COVID-19 complications.

“Now, very few of these comorbidities have racial determinants,” Fauci said. “Almost all relate to the social determinants of health dating back to disadvantageous conditions that some people of color find themselves in from birth regarding the availability of an adequate diet, access to health care, and the undeniable effects of racism in our society.”

“Let us promise ourselves that our corporate memory of this tragic reality — that an infectious disease disparately kills people of color — does not fade,” Fauci continued. “Righting this wrong will take a decades-long commitment. I urge you to be part of that commitment.”

Fauci Slams Divisiveness 

Fauci was giving this speech after being awarded the Emory University president’s medal, and he took the opportunity to slam divisiveness.

“Societal divisiveness is counterproductive in a pandemic,” Fauci said. “We must not be at odds with each other since the virus is the enemy, not each other.”

Fauci then praised the graduates for how they handled the pandemic.

“Not since the influenza pandemic of 1918 has humanity faced a public health crisis of this magnitude,” he said. “Each of you deserves enormous respect for your extraordinary adaptability, resilience and dedication to learning, completing your studies and graduating despite immense difficulties and uncertainties.”
