No, Kathy, go back and read. I said vaccination rates are falling, but never said they are falling uniformly across the entire US. You assumed. Go back and re-read.

Maybe the purpose is calling out racism and antisemitism whenever you see it. It is like these beliefs are so pervasive that people don't even know when they are espousing them.

And yes, this...
