The Secret to Keeping Black Men Healthy? Maybe Black Doctors – The New York Times

Why would we listen to anyone else but us when it comes to the health of us?? We have no allies and even some of “us” mean us no good…

Black men have the lowest life expectancy of any ethnic group in the United States. Much of the gap is explained by greater rates of chronic illnesses such as diabetes and heart disease, which afflict poor and poorly educated black men in particular.

But why is that? Lack of insurance? Lack of access to health care? Continue reading

Black kids need their own school system and this man is getting it done

Big ups to my man Marcus Kline!

When I first heard about Marcus Kline, co-founder of Freedom Home Academy International, I knew that he is a man making history.  The problem of educating black youth is one that has been made complicated by analysts who swear that it can’t be done.  But this belief that black kids can’t learn is one of those racial myths driven by the fact that people are quick to give up on them.

I interviewed Marcus about his school and what he’s doing and the interview is below.  What’s also important to understand is that the black education problem can be solved in one very simple way:  Raise money in the black community to put a school like the one being run by Marcus in every black community in America.

You see?  It’s easy. Problem solved.

Black Teen Accused of Cheating on Her SATs While White Students Got Away With College Bribery Scandal

Even though historically they have been liars and thieves, we’re always put under extra scrutiny for our greatness… but that is YT insecurity for you……

Miami, FL — A massive FBI investigation has revealed that several high profile white celebrities and business executives had paid a total of $25 million to get their children into high profile universities, even though they didn’t qualify to be admitted. Ironically, this nationwide college admission cheating scandal has brought back to mind Kamilah Campbell, an 18-year old African American high school student, whose SAT results were invalidated two months after she was falsely accused of cheating – allegedly because she had high scores. She eventually filed a lawsuit against SAT officials, claiming that they defamed her character and jeopardized her future. She, however, later dropped the law suit. Continue reading

Slave Food: The Impact of Unhealthy Eating Habits on the Black Community

Ppl will fight over their right to be slovenly and indulge in the worst food-like products… maybe natural selection will handle them in time…

African-Americans are a disadvantaged population. This is not up for debate. We have less access to quality education. We are underutilized and undervalued in the labor market, making it harder for us to accumulate wealth. For those of us who are in poverty, we do not always receive adequate housing or access to resources that could assist in our ability to be self-sufficient. The list of ways in which racial inequality, oppression and discrimination have contributed to the social imbalance between Blacks and our counterparts is vast. Continue reading
