NYC Health Dept: Structural racism increases the risk of heat stress for black New Yorkers

NYC Health Dept. memo to healthcare workers:

quote:

2022 Health Alert #17:

Extreme Heat Event August 4 and 5, 2022: Help Prevent Heat-Related Deaths

Please distribute to all clinical staff in primary care, family medicine, geriatrics, internal medicine, psychiatry, pharmacy and emergency medicine.


August 4, 2022

Dear Colleagues,

A heat advisory is in effect for Thursday, August 4 and Friday, August 5, with heat indices forecasted to be over 100 on Thursday and in the upper 90s on Friday.

Extreme heat is the deadliest type of extreme weather. It can cause hyperthermia and worsen existing medical conditions and mental health problems. Structural racism and the resulting social and economic inequities increase the risk of heat stress for Black New Yorkers, who are twice as likely to die from heat as White New Yorkers.

Do they have stats on this?

Or is this one of those things where more white people die of heat stroke, but since blacks make up less % it means they are more likely to die so it must be racism.

Jesus Christ. One day can we stop judging people by immutable characteristics? Do they really think black Americans are too stupid to not overheat?

At least they capitalized "white".

Even if that was true, why is that information that needs to be conveyed?

Are they implying black people are too dumb to understand what an AC or window unit is?

They are correct. Democrats have been promising to help blacks for decades and nothing has been done. Politicians gain power while minorities die in the streets.

If it were Republican or Conservative led government / leadership saying these type of things. They would be accused of calling blacks inferior to white.
