New York Governor Kathy Hochul Declares Racism as a ‘Public Health Crisis’

n Saturday, a bill signed into law by New York Governor Kathy Hochul (D-N.Y.) went into effect, formally declaring “racism” to be a “public health crisis” in the state of New York, Fox News reports.

The bill was one of many signed by Hochul over the course of November which focused on “racial equity.” This particular law calls for the creation of a “racial equity working group” in the state’s Department of Health that will formally recommend certain legislative action to the state legislature.

“For far too long, communities of color in New York have been held back by systemic racism and inequitable treatment,” Hochul’s office said in a December press release. “I am proud to sign legislation that addresses this crisis head-on, addressing racism, expanding equity and improving access for all.”

Other bills signed by Hochul that dictate similar actions include a law that will enact a “hate crimes analysis and review act,” which will maintain an “accurate and relevant” record of the number of Asian-Americans within the state. The same law also mandates that the term “Asian-American” be specifically broken down by each possible Asian ethnicity, including Chinese, Japanese, Filipino, Korean, Vietnamese, and Cambodian, among others.

Hochul also signed a bill that forces all New York state agency websites to undergo translation into various different languages besides English. Both of the latter bills were sponsored by State Assemblywoman Yuh-Line Niou (D-N.Y.), who praised the passage of both of her own bills.

“While some AAPI communities share traditions or connections based on history or location, the majority of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are members of distinct ethnic groups who have their own culture, languages, and needs,” Niou said with regards to the first law. On the second law, she claimed, without evidence, that “Asian-American communities are among the most impoverished in New York,” and that “they also faced some of the toughest headwinds even before the pandemic began while also being unable to navigate critical government services due to a lack of language accessibility.”

  1. NO; it’s not an health issue at all. It’s a SIN issue; just like so many others being improperly labeled for the agenda. But this issue will NOT be resolved until & unless ALL humans admit their propensity to racism, & deal with their own racist ideas & feelings properly (which does NOT include blaming others for theirs).

    • The problem is the liberals feel that it’s only their side that counts racism is an all walks of life black white alike the problem is you don’t see it you only see the racism from one perspective you’re blind to what this society is actually about

  2. I would think democrat party stupidity is more of a problem. Total group of morons

  3. it there any doubt why New York, once the center of the civilized world, is going down the crapper.

    In about 60 years, thanks to Democrat administration the city has been self destructing. Now and then a Republican would stop the destruction, but now it is falling apart, and those who have any smarts are fleeing to more sane parts of the United States.

    it has the most raciest government in the United States, and much of what they are doing is not even legal

  4. I have always said to point out where the racism is when it happens! Because there is racism in every group! If you do not believe it, then you have not been in the real world! Most people want to live peacefully with each other!

  5. This bitch has got to go…. NOW

  6. Why Thomas? They are all demonRATS. They deserve the pile of shit that represents them. They, the population, are as stupid as she is.

  7. If racism is such a health crisis they why did she say that if you need healthcare due to covid, you can’t get it if you are white. That is also racism. Any discrimination no matter who you are is racism. She is a part of the problem.

  8. She is an idiot…take her out!!!!!

  9. This is the crap we get when people don’t vote. These are not serious people, the Chinese are eating out lunch and we are chasing systemic racism which doesn’t exist, along with what pronouns we call people, and spending trillions not billions, but trillions we do not have.


    The lunacy prevails, lives well in the democrat party.

  11. Ignorance is bliss. I can understand and be supportive in an effort to make it easier for people within any ethnic group to access badly needed available benefits. However, calling out every problem as “systemic racism” doesn’t cut it for me. To me, systemic racism is to allow immigrants to enter our nation without requiring them to enroll in classes in “English as a second language.”


  13. She states that racism is a public health crisis in America. Then why is it that NYC is only allowing non-whites access to Covid treatments? If that isn’t a form of racism I don’t know what else is.

  14. The only public health crisis is the radical left!

  15. New York was able to get rid of a radical leftist because of his criminal activities which will most certainly result in his incarceration in a prison. So what did the New Yorkers do? They allowed his Lieutenant governor with the same leftist ideas, to take his office. She sat in the office next to his and wasn’t smart enough to see what he was doing. Did she know he was diddling his female employees? Did she wonder why he was getting so filthy rich?

  16. Sorry to bust your balloon but racism WORKS BOTH WAYS . . .Treat BOTH OFFNDER GROUPS THE SAME WAY

  17. Of course she’s correct . Any fool that doesn’t realize that racism is written into our government documents hasn’t paid attention.
    You know who gets upset about discussions about racism??? RACISTS! Period
