Trevor Noah Exposes America’s COVID Vaccine Racism
Comedy CentralEven though Black Americans are being hospitalized of COVID at 2.9x the rate of white Americans and are 1.5x more likely to die from the disease, they’re being vaccinated far less. According to the CDC, Black Americans have received just 5.4 percent of the administered COVID vaccine, while white Americans have received 60.4 percent of it. And in New York City, data revealed that more non-New York City residents were vaccinated than Black, Hispanic, and Native American New Yorkers combined. “Well, well, well, if it isn’t my old archnemesis: racism,” said Trevor Noah. “This is crazy, people. According to the available data, New York has vaccinated more out-of-towners than minorities who actually live here in New York. I mean, they need to beef up the screening process. You know, like, before giving someone a shot, just ask them to walk six feet on a sidewalk, and if they stop and look up at a building to admire it, you send their ass back to Connecticut.”The Daily Show host then pulled back, revealing how this issue is not just prevalent in New York City but the entire country.Read more at The Daily Beast.

Junk Bonds With Low Yields? Here’s Why They’re Hot
High-yield bonds that don’t pay very much? Sounds like an oxymoron, or maybe unwise. But investors are pouring money into what are also known as junk bonds -- debt issued by companies with less-robust finances that traditionally have paid higher interest rates to compensate for the extra risk. This month, the average yield on U.S. speculative grade debt fell below 4% for the first time ever. To some, that’s a sign that the Federal Reserve’s ultra-loose monetary policy is working as planned. To o
