Ontario NDP thinks genetic disease is anti-black racism

According to the Ontario NDP, a genetic disease that overwhelmingly impacts people of African descent is an example of anti-black racism.

The mind-numbingly ignorant statement is legitimately a part of the Ontario NDP’s 2022 election platform in the “anti-black racism” section.

“We’ll establish a systematic review of the reality that Black Canadians are disproportionately impacted by HIV/AIDS, mental health issues, heart disease, hypertension, Sickle Cell, and stroke. We’ll pass the Ontario NDP’s Improve Access to Health Care Act to improve care for Sickle Cell patients in crisis,” the NDP writes. 

You heard that right. Nature is racist

Apparently, NDP Leader Andrea Horwath skipped her high school biology lessons. If she had gone, she would have learned that Sickle Cell Disease is an inherited genetic disorder that most commonly affects those on the African continent. 

“Sickle cell disease (SCD), or sickle cell anaemia, is a major genetic disease that affects most countries in the African Region. In sickle cell disease, the normal round shape of red blood cells become like crescent moons. Round red blood cells can move easily through the blood vessels but sickled shaped cells interconnect and can result in blood clots,” writes the World Health Organization. 

This is not the first instance where the NDP has linked Sickle Cell Disease with discrimination. 

“Shamefully, many with sickle cell are mistreated when they most need help – from being callously and racially profiled as drug-seeking to being subjected to incredibly long wait times, while still in pain,” said NDP MPP Jill Andrews in 2020. 

However, the Ontario NDP isn’t the only party that has gone completely insane ahead of the 2022 provincial election. 

Ontario Liberal leader Steven Del Duca recently said that he would make the COVID-19 vaccine mandatory for kids to attend school. 

“The best way to get back to normal is to make classrooms safer,” he said. 

“Ontario Liberals will do just that by expanding the list of universal vaccines to include the COVID-19 vaccine and requiring all frontline workers to be vaccinated.”
