Black Journalist that cover the racial injustices and social unrest related to the George Floyd, etc. killings and the disparate impact of the COVID-19 virus has taken a mental and physical toll. I watched videos of black people screaming about losing their breath, pleading for mercy or sometimes just silence before a stream of “pop, pop, pop.”The pandemic and its subsequent crises have demonstrated the essential work of black journalists who cover racial inequities, while the crises have further eroded an already fractured media landscape rife with longstanding racial disparities. Inclusive Viewpoint: "When whites catch a cold, blacks catch COVID-19 or 'Catch a Case', or 'Catch Hell'."Those on the Journalism Front Line perform an essential function, but they are also human beings.
