At the world vaccine summit on June 4, Melinda Gates, co-founder of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, used the protests against racism that have been taking place in the United States to say that African Americans should be among the first to receive a vaccine for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus.
During an interview with Time magazine, the wife of Microsoft’s co-founder revealed that those who should receive the vaccine for the CCP Virus after the medical staff around the world should be African Americans in the United States, even though she did not give a clear explanation for her statements.
“The first people that need this vaccine are the 60 million health care workers around the world. They deserve to get it before anybody else. Then you start tiering” said Melinda Gates, who, when asked who should get the vaccine next, replied, “In the U.S., that would be black people next, quite honestly, and many other people of color.”
Gates’s arguments are consistent with the media narrative that has been circulating condemning racism in the United States in the wake of the outrage that was formed by the death of African American George Floyd on May 25 at the hands of a white police officer.
The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is known for funding expensive and controversial vaccination projects around the world with the goal, according to the foundation’s website, of fighting individual diseases or addressing global health challenges in the face of potential future outbreaks.
This organization has also been leading the funding for the World Health Organization in recent years and was only surpassed by the United States. However, President Donald Trump in April ended funding for the organization because it had failed in its basic duty to protect people, allowing the pandemic to spread around the world.
The WHO has also received numerous criticisms from the governments of different countries that distrust the transparency of this international organization in the handling of the virus and the efforts of a coverup that could exist due to the influence of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
Meanwhile, the arguments that Melinda Gates would have used to announce that African Americans would be the first to receive a vaccine point to an “equitable way” of dealing with the discrimination experienced by people of color.
“This pledging event means governments around the world will step up in global cooperation to all say, ‘We care about this vaccine getting out equitably,” said Gates, who also said that “people with underlying health conditions, and then people who are older” would be next in line to receive the vaccine.
Gates’s statements quickly drew criticism from some social network users who questioned whether the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s plans were racially and politically motivated.
“Evidently they do and Melinda Gates wants black people to be the first to get the Bill #GatesOfHell population reducing vaccine that he holds the patents on,” wrote one Twitter user Diamond T.

Racist Bill Gates has it all figured out. He can reduce the black population and make billions doing it. #ExposeBillGates

Regarding the U.S.’s disassociation from the WHO, Melinda Gates noted that no institution is perfect and that amid the pandemic the last thing [government] should do is make changes or withdraw.
“The U.S. government is the largest funder of the WHO. Nobody can replace the funding the U.S. was putting into the WHO,” Gates added.
In mid-May, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) decided to suspend a project on coronavirus testing that had been funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
The initiative, known as the Seattle Coronavirus Assessment Network, or SCAN, said in a statement, “The FDA has not raised any concerns regarding the safety and accuracy of SCAN’s test, but we have been asked to pause testing until we receive that additional authorization,” Reuters reported.
According to the platform designed by the White House, We Are The People a petition is currently underway to have Congress investigate the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for “crimes against humanity” and “medical malpractice.”
So far the petition has reached a staggering 580,000 signatures from citizens concerned about the role of the two philanthropists’ foundation in the spread of the coronavirus.
