@FIPurpose - Can you expand on what data set I'm misinterpreting?

Nationwide: White = 61% of population and 58% received one vaccine dose. Vaccine gap is 5%, or 95% proportional vaccination. (58% divided by 61%)

Black: 12% of population, 10% received one dose. 83% proportional vaccination.

This data is especially straightforward in states with large urban minority populations. Georgia, 26% vaccinated, 32% of the population, and unfortunately 35% of total deaths.

Michigan, 13% of the population, 23% of deaths (only 10% vaccinated)

Washington DC: 46% of population, 71% of deaths. 43% vaccinated.

By raw numbers, that 5% difference in the white population is more unvaccinated people, given that 61% of the United States is Caucasian.

My bet would be that if you tried to digest why the numbers are happening the way they are:

1. African-Americans live in poorer conditions: smaller houses, multi-generational houses, lower access to good food and water

2. They are more likely to have less access to better medical care (probably a big contributor to why they have a higher death rate)

3. More likely that African-Americans feel that they cannot take a day or 2 off to handle the vaccine side-effects.

4. African-Americans are more heavily concetrated in states that have been doing a bad job in distributing vaccines (and we know that these states don't try particularly hard in certain localities)

But also, you need to think about what percentage of the state itself is vaccinated when comparing these rates. Is this a state that is 70% vaxed or still <50%? If the remaining 40% of people left to get vaccinated in a state are the most vaccine hesitant/agnostic/unwilling then how much of that remaining number are from certain demographics?

The largest polled demographic left unvaccinated by far are anti-vax, MAGA people.

But even looking at your numbers such as Georgia:

51% of the state has received at least 1 dose:

of that 51%:

26% - Black

9% - Hispanic

7% - Asian

54% - White

So the percent of the total population still unvaccinated left in the state of Georgia:

19% - Black

5% - Hispanic

<1% - Asian

30% - White

And Georgia has a far higher black population than most states. My guess is if you looked at other states statistics, the difference would be even starker. Georgia should do all it can to vaccinate all groups of people still remaining, but the number of unvaccinated whites still outnumbers urban minority populations. (though there's about 4% missing in the data above, so not sure how to categorize the 'other' group and that's also why the numbers above may not line up exactly).
