'You will see another uprising': Black Lives Matter says 'the vaccination passport is not a free passport to racism'

As Twitchy reported earlier, Black Lives Matter protesters descended on Carmine’s Italian restaurant on New York City’s Upper West Side in response to allegations of racial profiling from three Texas tourists who were arrested for allegedly assaulting a hostess over a disagreement over the city’s vaccine mandate.

Caroline Downy writes in National Review that Black Lives Matter NYC has promised further protests as they say the city’s vaccine passport has a disparate effect on blacks:

Who saw this coming? Oh yeah, all of us.

Downey writes:

Chivona Newsome, the other co-founder of BLM NYC, targeted Mayor Bill de Blasio’s vaccine mandate more specifically in her remarks. She implied that the edict has resulted in repeats of historical episodes when blacks were disenfranchised from society.

“Seventy-two percent of black people in this city from ages 18 to 44 are unvaccinated. So what is going to stop the Gestapo, I mean the NYPD, from rounding up black people, from snatching them off the train, off the bus?” she added.

Chivona Newsome suggested that if these incidents continue, Black Lives Matter could revolt to exact justice like it did after George Floyd’s death.

“We’re putting this city on notice, that your mandate will not be another racist social-distance practice. Black people are not going to stand by, or you will see another uprising. And that is not a threat; that is a promise,” she said. “The vaccination passport is not a free passport to racism.”

How is it that politicians who decided to bring back segregation couldn’t foresee this?

We reported in December that students of color were exempt from Cornell’s flu vaccine requirement “based on historical injustices and current events,” so yes, exemptions for people of color already exist in some places.

President-elect Biden told us the vaccine would not be mandatory.
