London Mayor Sadiq Khan: “Racism” to Blame for Coronavirus Among Minorities

London mayor Sadiq Khan blames racism for coronavirus deaths within minority communities

London mayor Sadiq Khan says “structural racism” is to blame for COVID-19 infections among the country’s minority groups.

Khan has urged the British government to start collecting and publishing the ethnicities of those infected with the Chinese virus, claiming that racial inequality is likely the reason why people of black, Asian, and minority ethnic (BAME) backgrounds have been overrepresented in the pandemic.

“Even though it can be uncomfortable for some to acknowledge, we cannot ignore the barriers of discrimination and structural racism that exist in our society, which contribute to ethnic minorities being more likely to suffer from poverty, have underlying health conditions and work in insecure, low-paid jobs,” Mayor Khan wrote in a column for The Guardian.

Khan claims that because “people from ethnic minority backgrounds are overrepresented in poor, overcrowded accommodation, or households with multiple generations under one roof”, they are more likely to become infected with the deadly virus.

“Many simply don’t have the luxury of being able to work safely from home during the lockdown. All of this contributes to a BAME population with worse health than average, lower life expectancy and a greater prevalence of serious underlying health conditions, such as heart disease, asthma and diabetes,” he said. reports: The London mayor also called for a “new social contract” after the coronavirus pandemic has passed, in order to reduce “racial and economic equality, and prioritises the welfare and wellbeing of every single community in this country”.

Khan’s attempt to link coronavirus cases with alleged structural racism echoes similar left narratives in the United States.

Progressive members of the U.S. Congress including Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Sen. Cory Booker (D-NJ), Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA), and Rep. Robin Kelly (D-IL) made a similar demand of the government to release data about the racial background of coronavirus patients.

“Any attempt to contain COVID-19 in the United States will have to address its potential spread in low-income communities of color, first and foremost to protect the lives of people in those communities, but also to slow the spread of the virus in the country as a whole,” the lawmakers wrote.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, the far-left congresswoman from New York, suggested that coronavirus relief money should be “drafted with a lens of reparations” in order to make up for “environmental racism” and other “underlying health conditions” that have caused minorities to be “disproportionately” affected by the virus.

To date, the coronavirus is known to hav infected some nearly two and a half million people of widely disparate racial backgrounds across the globe.


  1. How long is this guys term???? Have they NOT HAD ENOUGH of this jacknozzle yet???

    Damn, our cousins in the UK are dumb as a stump.

    • Ishtar’s a pagan holiday (the holiday is for the pagan fertility goddess named Ishtar, pronounced easter), but agreed on passover. Damn right on ramadan as well

  2. You can tell who the racists are these days, they are the ones accusing whites of being racists. Whites are the least racist out of all the races. And this fucking racist pedo paki cunt needs his throat slit. Halal style. Then feed him to the pigs.

  3. On the subject of ethnicity I’ve spent about an hour and a half trying to find out anything about Twdris Ashnanon of WHO but his life us si shrouded in complete secrecy you can get almost nothing more about him than a pow would give to their captors Nothing; place of birth parents names, one brother died, eent to school and university. That’s it .Why all the secrecy ?Later you find from other sources he was is a member if a terrorist group and a marxis ,so obviously no fan of western capitalism or democracy. So why the appointment?Then you learn mobs of accusations of human rights abuses in Ethiopia, and masses of crimes against humanity allegations ,and then even charges if having covered up outbreaks of cholera and other diseases and conspiracies to indebtedness Ethiopia to China .All quite quickly his CV is readily available, so why the appointment to director General of health ? And why the complete secrecy about his personal life, his religion ,his associations friendships?

    • Also nb he was trying to appoint Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador to the UN on human rights That received to many objections But why have no medical associations or health ministers anywhere in the world ,at all, spoken up about his track record and the curiosity of his appointment? Nothing Just compliant silence Why ?

  4. Pagans are more likely to get coronavirus……seems to follow the trend of history, no surprise there. When you worship pagan idols like Allah, Shiva, siddhartha, etc, historically you get the plagues of egypt……rightfully so, dont mess with Jesus

  5. I wish they wouldn’t show pictures of the smug little maggot, all I want to do is punch it !

    ….can’t afford to break any more computer screens ! 🙂
