CNN Documentarian: 'The System is Designed to Make Sure They Get Sick'


[See NewsBusters for more.] Comedian and documentarian W. Kamau Bell joined Chris Cuomo on Friday to preview the fifth season of CNN's docuseries United Shades of America, set to debut on Sunday. According to Bell, "the system" is not only to blame for police brutality, but also the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Cuomo asked Bell about what could be done about the fact that the virus has hit poor and minority communities disproportionately hard, "And we see it in the pandemic also. Who's getting sick more? Poor, brown. Who's dying more? Poor, brown. Who has to work more? Poor, brown. It's part of social justice. How do you take it on?"
