"To a word with jason johnson. Today we're talking with dr toxin of the black coalition against cove. It as you mentioned from the start. The fight against it has been politicized and about half a million americans in the trump administration's watch. What are some policy changes from the white house that you suggest they should be implementing now to combat covert. What's the policy solution or the policy. Message that we should be getting now that we're not getting from the white house you know. This is a very intriguing question jason. Because i'm not so sure that there are a lot of policy issues. I think that what the federal government can do number one is it has to continue to push the values that every human life in america is respected and that when black people take to the streets in the by the tens of thousands screaming out as a primal scream my life matters my dignity matters unless those issues are dealt with then everything after that becomes a challenge. But that is the most important thing is to get us to a place where black lives matter to this government and to this country number two what they have to be able to do. I think they have done a good job ultimately of making sure that there is access to vaccines in our communities together. One of the things that they made a decision that i have to commend him for and something that i'm working in with the black michigan's. Covert much in partnership is using our community based infrastructures for not only our our church and faith and civic leaders but also our barber shops and beauty salons we are involved in a major initiative with them now where we are training barbershops owners and and salon beauticians to have the facts about this disease. Because we know how much time we spend at the shop. I think one of the things they need to do. A better job of from a policy point of view is to give more money and resources to black organizations to do the marketing and not have a filter through white organizations last year in twenty twenty when things were at some levels at their worst. I wrote a piece for the grio. And i did some back of the envelope. Calculations and pointed out that black people were dying of covert at the same rate that we were dying on the middle passage being brought from from the continent to the united states. And i remember getting a lot of feedback and people were like. Oh my god like when they saw those numbers when you saw the percentage is roughly the same here. We are almost a year later. From when i wrote that piece. What i'm hearing from. Some people is while i had cova tonight survive. So why do i need the vaccine. And then i hear some people say well look if i can still catch. Cova evening to get vaccinated. What's the point of getting vaccinated. What would you advise both me and those of us out there in the world who were hearing that from people. How do we talk to. The people who've already been sick who don't want to get vaccinated. How do we talk to the people who have become nihilist now. Who are saying. Well i don't see any pointing getting it. If i could still suffer through a breakthrough first and foremost we must approach this with an undying love for black people. Do you understand and undying love for black people and through that undying love for black people a love for all people. That's what's important. So that the middle passage example that you give we have been struggling for survival in america since the very first days and it has been a communal struggle it has been a struggle where each of us recognizes that we are part of a whole and that we have an obligation to each other to pull each other through to get us where we need to go the celebration of the black family against all odds but the celebration of the black community in support of the black family and support black individuals. Our churches our infrastructure our social organizations. All of them have been dedicated to issues larger than ourselves. And so when we have people who say i have a right not to wear a mask i have a right not to take a vaccine that may say i have a right to go into the club at night and party with all of my friends and so forth. I don't care what happens to you. Because i am all that matters. That is antipathetic jason to our entire history as a people in this country and so i think that we all have to start to appeal to each other. That says look. When did it ever get to the place where i was more important than we and i think this moral and ethical obligation that is grounded not only in morality and ethics but also in history is something we have to talk to people about so not only is the science there that says that we realized now that ninety nine point nine percent of all the people that are in hospitals today for covert infection are unvaccinated which ought to be all that anybody needs to know. I mean i you know those who are saying that they are fearful of getting a vaccine when tens of millions of in the united states and around the world have been getting it without untoward consequences. What are you waiting for. But if you don't do it for yourself why don't do it for your kids. Why don't we have our children be able to get back into school. These are the issues that are larger than ourselves. so put it in the context of the middle passage. I like that. And i think we have to continue to reinforce our sense that me is not as important as we leave us with some good news. What is as as as some of us are thinking of heading back to school as we head into the fall as we hear about the delta variant and some people have concerns. What is something optimistic that we can hang our hats on about this battle against cove in in the black community heading into the second half of twenty twenty one. I'll give you a quick one. I had a chance to the other day. Meet some of the descendants of the tuskegee. Syphilis study experiment and the families. I was so impressed that we were able to get a camera crew in a film crew to film them in a series of short documentaries. And i'll tell you what they all set to a person. We are all vaccinated and we do not want or do not enjoy in fact. We're quite upset. When people use the misery and pain of our ancestors of our fathers and our grandfathers and great grandfathers each of those cases those different generations represented in our conversation. We resent when people use that as a way to harm themselves. So i find myself very optimistic that there are people who have come through the struggle. The i met some of the people who were some of the men who were part of that study and it was a big celebration in honor of them years ago and i met them and they handed the microphone to one of them and this is what he said we forgive. Wow that is who we are. As people we are people who can forgive and their descendants can say to the black community with begging. You do the right thing we all are. I have such optimism because the dignity and the gravitas of these family members saying to people. We can turn a corner. We don't have to be stuck in the amber of our traditional fights with white america. this is beyond that. Let's move forward. And i think they give me reason for optimism. So i'm pretty jazzed up when i'm.

Would dr reed toxin of the black coalition against cove. It dr texan. You mentioned something. At the beginning. I thought was fascinating. I was a kid at the time. I've seen the documentaries. You'd lead public health efforts in washington. Dc during the aids epidemic in the eighties. First off just from a fear and ignorance standpoint. What was that like. I mean you know today. Cova did you can have people who may be cova skeptics accessory etcetera but during aids crisis in the eighties. You had people saying well. This is just for gay people. This is just for immoral people. What was it like. What were some of the challenges that you face then you know. What's really kind of very sad is that it is almost exactly like it is today here. You have a disease that is spread in ways that people did not understand therefore there was a lot of mistrust about what it means to me and others the number one rate limiting step to try to talk to black community that i recall so well on every radio show that i did. It was always tuskegee. Tuskegee to ski. This is a plot by the white man to kill black people. It was made in a lab at the cia. I mean doesn't this. All sound very familiar is very frightening and then of course it was us against them me against you. I'm not going to do what i need to do to protect my sexual partner because it's all a plot and so often jason. I'd be on a phone call like this with you and and a person would call in and say well. This is a plot against black people developed by the white man in the cia and then i would ask brother. What do we do wearing a condom tonight with your lady and all of us is like well. I don't have to wear a condom. Because i can't get it and she can't get it because it's not even a real disease so these is almost exactly but this is outrageous part and i think it's something we're going to have to deal with. That was forty years ago. If tuskegee was the rate limiting step to try to talk to black folks about the importance of protecting not only themselves but their their partners and their community from that disease we have done nothing in forty years to take tuskegee off the table. How could that be re rate limiting step yet again. Shame on the american research enterprise. Shame on the american clinical care. Enterprise and shame on the american public policy. Enterprise that together our healthcare industry of which i am a member have done nothing in forty years to give black people the sense that the guidance and advice is being given to them out of out of love out of respect out of concern for their health as opposed to the distrust that we see rampant. Today when you have these interactions today whether it's a radio show in dc or online or whatever. What's the most common explanation that people have for why they haven't taken the vaccine here. We are eight nine months because a lot of people have. But if you're eight nine months in you have a reason why you haven't they ultimately comes down to over and over again. Anger distrust frustration and the vaccine or the mask wearing or any other guidance become proxies for a larger set of social phenomenon and until we sort of begin to understand that it really makes us having to battle these individual concerns. It's okay to have questions and that's one thing that we say over and over again. Jason is. It's okay to have questions but please don't get your answers from kooky because kooky on the internet doesn't know what they're talking about but it's okay to have questions but if you're not prepared to listen to the answers if you have no trust in what people who are scientific experts are saying then the conversation becomes very difficult because you're shadowboxing around. What the real concern is and the real concern. Is i do not trust anything that anybody is telling me and i simply believe that this is a plot to hurt me and therefore i am not going to cooperate. That's what we're hearing over and over again. Regardless of what the question is we're going to take a short break when we come back more on covert provincial measures in the black community.

"She's professor of anthropology, risk and decision science at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. She says that people have four fundamental questions when it comes to getting shot. Found was four domains, confidence in the importance and the effectiveness in the safety and is a compatible with my it least. Religious or otherwise. Interestingly, you really look globally the data on comparing it to actual vaccine uptake perception of the importance of the vaccine is actually the strongest predictor of vaccine acceptance. Dr Larson says the populations that are most vulnerable to covet exposure or serious outcomes for the disease, including native latter necks and black people, and people with low incomes are also the most likely to experience vaccine hesitancy. Most widely held concern across the population is about the safety of this shot and its potential side effects thing. Same time. If people believe in the importance of the vaccine, they're much more willing to tolerate a bit of risk. Dr Reid Tucks in is a member of the Clinical Center Research board at the National Institutes of Health and the founder of the Black Coalition against Cove. It It's a group of community organizations and health care professionals who came to build trust for the vaccine among black and brown communities and inform people about the risks of catching and spreading cove in He said that the disease of distrust can be deadly. We have to realize that there is a larger context that has to be addressed distrust of health care researchers distrust of the system of clinical care and distrust of the health policy movement. Ah, lot of that was because of the Tuskegee syphilis study of which are everyone, I'm sure is well aware of the horrors of that experience, but those remained prominent and frustrated our ability To respond from a public health perspective to the HIV AIDS crisis in the black community is Number one. We must have grassroots community engagement. If we're going to fight these kinds of challenges, Government cannot do it alone at the federal, state or local level. It must be community based organizations, people from the community who can translate and transmit Science messages in their own vernacular in ways that can reach and cut cut through. Secondly, you must have trusted science and clinical care voices. There is a huge desire for the black community to hear from trusted voices trusted black positions, and scientists and funding is a very big part of it. Unfortunately, what we see too often is major white philanthropies and other organizations with which Government already has a pre existing funding mechanism. They get the dollars and what happens is that the African American community has been taxed with doing the work we do, but having to do it with very little resource is and people sort of taking those community based organizations for granted. Jackson says organizing efforts have begun to make headway and raising people's confidence in the vaccines. But, he says once people do decide to get vaccinated. Systemic inequality in the health care system leaves low income and communities of color, waiting the longest for their shot. Our polling tells us that we've gone from a couple of months ago. Where was 60%? No, I will not take the vaccine to now. Our polling is telling the status down to 30%. The 70% are saying I need more information and I'm ready to go. Black folks are not in the back teen hesitant issue the way that we thought we would be anymore. So it is not an excuse. But it is hard to get black folks to come take the vaccine, and this is a referendum on America's competence to execute on a very fundamental problem. I'm Jr Summers for KPFK.
