Impressive how quickly “open the economy” became a phrase every media outlet & pundit just decided was a neutral, anodyne descriptor rather than a horrific rightwing euphemism for condemning 100,000s of workers, disproportionately African-American, to death for corporate profits
Was there a zoom conference call I missed where we all agreed this was a thing?
When reporting on “opening the economy” it’s important we center the 100,000s of unnecessary deaths and who will be doing the dying. Also these article should contain photos of mansions of business leaders quoted in the article to show where they will hole up and be at zero risk
