It is time that the people in the United States of America stop “playing” and become true citizens of a great nation. Too many have been lulled asleep for too long listening to foolishness on television and tolerating foolishness from politicians and not thinking for themselves. “Right” and “wrong” are the tenets of reality and now “virtual“ has replaced “actual” to the extent that  everything is debatable and in question.  I attended a conference this morning where statistics of infant mortality, sexually-transmitted diseases and lifestyle disease  (obesity and diabetes) disparity were presented. In each area black Americans lead the way. 

Information provided about sexually transmitted diseases included:1,462 cases of Chlamydia were newly diagnosed in 2015, 66% were in black Americans, 346 new case of gonorrhea, 80% was in black Americans; 85% of all syphilis diagnosis and 57% of new HIV diagnoses were in black Americans. There are nine hundred thousand black men aged 18-45 are incarcerated in the United States. The number of black Americans incarcerated is greater than the summed total of all people incarcerated in India, Argentina, Canada, Lebanon, Japan, German, Finland, Israel and England ....combined. No effort was made to correlate the numbers of incarcerated and the infected. “Capitalism” is booming with the prison industry.

It is clear that the disease states of black America provides employment and constitutive income to the healthcare, pharmaceutical and dialysis industries. Statistics are collected but the outcome does not change. “Health” is an outcome, not a dependent variable. The variables contributing to health disparities are manipulated by those who benefit from the suffering of others.
