Even as we approach 500,000 COVID-19 deaths, the pandemic is being heralded as the ‘great exposer’ of disparities in our society. BS! These disparities have long been known and they only garnered attention because it goes against US moral sensibility to see these disparities so publicly. Don’t believe me? Why then, did a recent study find, yet again, that Latino voters still face challenges in Washington state?; Or how come enrollment at US community colleges is plummeting?; or Why did another study showcase how drivers of color don’t get good driving awards when it comes to their car insurance? The pandemic may have shone the light on the proverbial elephant in the room but history shows us it won’t last as long as needed for reform to take root. Go beyond the headlines…
