"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."
George Washington

"Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters."

Everything always has to be about race and victim-hood with these people.  Maybe there was just a very limited amount of the vaccine due to it's not being on the market yet.

Yep, if they didn't give it to whites the blacks would complain about being used as guinea-pigs for 'da man'.

'Innocent victim' is an extremely difficult mentality to overcome...

Just wondering -- have there been any updates on the conditions of the two Americans in Atlanta who have been treated with the serum?

Seems like the news has fallen silent about them the past few days...
