Dear Black People, Today it’s with a heavy heart that I inform you of the passing of one of our crew members. Mr. Charles Gregory was a hairstylist that had worked with us for many years. The man was warm, loving and hilarious. We all loved to see him coming and hear his laughter. Charles lost his battle with COVID-19 today. It saddens me to think of him dying this way. My sincerest prayers are with his family. While everyone can contract this virus it is black people who are dying from it in much larger numbers. This thing is real, black people. I heard a black person say, “Black people don’t get it.” That is a lie! You can get it, and you will get it if we don’t do what we're being told to do. A 26 year old black woman died the other day, a 44 year old black man died the other day, not to mention the hundreds of people that are dying every few minutes. Your age does not matter!! Your health does not matter. You could be totally healthy, and you could die! Now listen to me. You have been right by my side since I started in this business, so please hear me with your heart. I LOVE US. I love our humor. I love our culture. I love our hair. I love our skin. I love everything about who we are. All of us. And I love us all too much to watch us die on the vine because we are the last to know and we are not taking this pandemic seriously. Black people, we are at a disproportionately higher risk of dying from this virus. Please, please, please, I beg you to take this seriously. You have to socially distance yourself. That means stop hanging out, stop congregating, stop doing anything that will put not only your life in danger but also the lives of so many others. STAY HOME!! Socially distance yourself and stay alive! If you won’t do it for yourself, do it for someone you love, and for those who love you. My Mother always told me to not wait for help! Be your own help!

A few of the ladies in my circle are RN, and directly on the front line, and yes black folks are dying from it, they have also told me young men without any prior health issues having to be intubated and are fighting for their lives. Now while this was a man made biological weapon unleashed on the unsuspecting public, and there's a lot of manufactured crisis around it, and the numbers are being inflated as people are dying from underlying, health issues and the death certificate is listing covid 19. A whole lot of fuckery surrounding this, but yes we must still take it seriously, my 75 yr old mother was hospitalized and tested positive, she was kept in the hospital for 4 days and released to self quarantine for several days, she is fine as is my 31 yr old daughter that had it. There are people recovering from it and others are dying both healthy and sick. I am not going to react hysterical about this, but I will take precautions, also to note there are different strains of this virus, on any lysol bottle it says it kills coronavirus, and while there is a deadlier strain that attacks the lungs and folks with asthma and smokers are at high risk. We do need to indeed heed the warnings without tripping. The satanic so called elite saying is let no good epidemic go to waste, I cannot wait till we rid ourselves of these vampiric, cancerous parasites, who live on the backs of the 99%.

Btw my hard headed ass mother got that mess going to a women's conference at her damn church, then 70% of the church came down with the virus. She don't never listen to me on account I'm an occultist so oh well I'm just happy she's alive and well.

Sadly a lot of these pastors are encouraging that reckless assemblage of their members. Probably to make sure they still get those tithes and offerings.
Smdh.

Yup, it's all about getting money. They are disgusting but at the end of the day, these people are still so programmed and indoctrinated, you can't tell them nothing.

Our ppl are always getting hit the hardest from diseases because we don't listen and want practice doctors safety regiments.
Im surprised the news has not taken video of ppl here in NYC walking around 125th street like nothing is wrong unprotected.

We're getting hit the hardest because when we report illnesses and symptoms they are dismissed and we are sent home.
