This paper distinguishes between the experiences of Black Americans and white Americans during the COVID-19 pandemic and how this different experience relates to fear. This paper ultimately argues that policymakers ought to fund the collection and analysis of race-based data, as it pertains to COVID-19, and that these policymakers ought to appeal to the findings of this race-based data to guide their policy and implementation strategy. Without gathering or appealing to such data, policymakers are being negligent in working to protect their constituents.
