Graffitti on MBTA fence, Jamaica Plain neighborhood, Boston, MA

Description (Dublin Core)

Poor people, Black people, and Latinx people are suffering and dying during the pandemic more than others. Most frontline workers in Jamaica Plain-- from the cashiers and stockers at Whole Foods and Stop & Shop grocery stores, to the pharmacy's staff, to the aids at Brookside Community Health and Spaulding Rehab, are mostly low wage workers, many of them immigrants and/or people of color. The pandemic is forcing people to address longstanding social inequities, and the White House is failing to gain any trust that it will help those suffering. As recently as the day before I'm writing this, Donald Trump was pushing for all states to begin re-opening businesses that are not necessary at this time, largely staffed by people who are financially and socially vulnerable. Someone is taking out their frustrations by graffito-ing walls around JP; this is but one sample.
