Bill Gates reacts to George Floyd death: ‘Black lives matter’. Microsoft founder Bill Gates on Wednesday reacted to the death of George Floyd and other black Americans at the hands of law enforcement by saying "Black lives matter." "The horrifying killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor and far too many other Black people—and the protests they sparked—are shining a light on the brutal injustices that Black people experience every day…in policing, criminal justice, education, health care, housing, the workplace and all other areas of their lives," Gates wrote.
He said he is "committed to listening and learning more about systemic racism" and what he can do with his "actions and words to help create a more equal and just future." "I don’t have all the answers about how I can use my voice and my philanthropy to be part of the solution," Gates wrote. "I will continue to deepen my understanding and to stand with people and organizations working toward a future centered on gender and racial equity."
Melinda Gates Lays Out Her Biggest Concern for the Next Phase of the COVID-19 Pandemic. From 2018-2019, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation gave more money to the World Health Organization than any entity except the U.S. government. The first people that need this vaccine are the 60 million health care workers around the world. They deserve to get it before anybody else. Then you start tiering.
In the U.S., that would be black people next, quite honestly, and many other people of color. They are having disproportionate effects from COVID-19. From there, people with underlying health conditions, and then people who are older. Those are the ones who all need it first.
What happened to George Floyd was brutal and horrible and should never happen to anyone, anywhere. This is a moment of reckoning in the United States. We all need to really pause during this time and learn as best we can from it. Even before we saw this senseless death, COVID had already started to show us gaps and structural problems in our country. We are seeing black men die at a disproportionate rate. We know the way out of COVID-19 will be a vaccine, and it needs to go out equitably.
Leprosy caused many to be quarantined for 14 days and put out of the camp. Today Lepers are plagued with sin. Many Seventh-Day Adventists will be put out on the Dark Day.
