Democratic Rep. and 'squad' member Ayanna Pressley suggested that black Americans have been disproportionally impacted by the coronavirus due to "comorbidities of structural racism."

Speaking to MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell about the COVID-19 vaccine, Pressley implied marginalized communities should get first access to the vaccine because they are more vulnerable.

"The coronavirus is the third leading cause of death for black Americans," Pressley began.

"So, the most vulnerable and marginalized communities because of the comorbidities of structural racism, because of unequal access to healthcare, because of transportation deserts and food apartheid systems have been the most vulnerable to contracting this virus," she explained.

Pressley's overarching suggestion that the coronavirus impacts black people more than others was backed up by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

WATCH:

Black Americans are reportedly 1.4 times more likely to contract COVID-19 and 2.8 times more likely to die from COVID-19 compared to white, non-Hispanic Americans.

Hispanics, however, are just as susceptible to COVID-19.

CDC data shows that Hispanics are 1.7 times more prone to contract COVID-19, 4.1 times more likely to be hospitalized with complications from COVID-19, and 2.8 times more likely to die from COVID-19 than white non-Hispanic Americans.

The CDC says:

Adults with "certain underlying medical conditions are at increased risk for severe illness" if they contract the coronavirus, including "hospitalization, admission to the ICU, intubation or mechanical ventilation, or death."

CDC data show the vast majority of all COVID-related deaths in America have been of people with comorbidities.

Earlier this year, Melinda Gates said that the COVID-19 vaccine should be given to black people first.

Between 2018 and 2019, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which she founded with her Microsoft co-founder husband, gave more money to the World Health Organization (WHO) than any other entity except the U.S. government.

President Donald Trump cut ties with WHO over concerns about the UN health body's relationship with the Communist Party of China (CPC).

Gates said the shot should then be given to black people and "many other people of color" before being used on white people.
