I persist in believing there has been less racism in the USA throughout its history than is generally assumed. This is not to say that the violent racism we all know about didn’t exist. Rather, I think we overestimate it.

Covid-19 origin stories have been a touchy subject since the very beginning of the pandemic. To even suspect that the virus is manmade, possibly even the product of bioweapons research, has been to invite ridicule. That began to change last May when Jeffrey Sachs published a paper in PNAS calling for an investigation into the true source of the virus.
