The least vaccinated racial population in the USA are African Americans, who are overwhelmingly registered Democrats. But since that doesn’t fit the narrative, let’s ignore the facts and blame ‘Republicans’.
You are looking at the wrong numbers. If you want to know which group is contributing the most to the spread of the virus, you can't just look at the (un)vaccination rate. How much each group spreads the virus depends on the total number who are unvaccinated, not just the rate.
As the article points out, 55% of whites, and 66% of blacks are unvaccinated. To see how much each group contributes to the spread of the virus, those rates need to be weighted by each group's share of the population. Since whites are 60% of the population, and blacks are 14% of the population, unvaccinated whites are 33% of the total population, while unvaccinated blacks make up only 9% of the population. In otherwords, there are almost 4x as many uvaccinated whites as there are unvaccinated blacks. So whites are contributing far more to the spread of the virus than blacks.
Remember: Mother Nature doesn't do narratives; Mother Nature does math.
