“Black Death” Matters: A modern take on Medieval Pandemic”, I thought this was very good article to read especially because on how it compares to the pandemic we are currently going through. I think one of the biggest points that were stated in the article was that racial violence was drastically increased during the Bubonic Plaque, which is quite concerning because there has lots of racial violence going on during the pandemic. There has been many riots since the murder of George Floyd which went on during the current pandemic. I think this is something to be expected because during the worlds history there is always a scapegoat for when something bad happens. There have been many theories that went on that COVID-19 was some weapon that was designed by China to kill us which is pretty terrible theory as it is killing everyone not just Americans. But this is due to the fact that people tend to always want to blame someone, I think we should be made aware of this and be very cautious because even if COVID was started in China doesn’t mean it’s some weapon against us, I think that is just extremely racist and is quite disgusting for someone to try to blame it on China. Another interesting part of the article was how it talked about that its possibility that maybe it will bring in a new economic model, I have no evidence to say this is for sure to happen but I think It is a possibility. I think in a couple years when this pandemic is over, people will think of ways on how we can be better if something like this happens again. I would hope that the model would change because this pandemic has destroyed our economy and has made a lot of people become unemployed but only time will tell.
