    Social Injustice: Institutionalized Racism In America

    in News

    Months after the city of Flint, Mich., switched from a Detroit water supply complaints were ignored  about water. Late in 2015 state officials declared a  public health emergency of lead poisoning which cause lasting health and developmental problems in children, the pregnant and the weak.Michigan state officials knew of health risks: a state legislator warned the governor in a letter that his constituents were “on the verge of civil unrest.”  A hospital in Flint saw that the water was damaging its instruments . The hospital and a local university started filtering its water. 


    Such disregard of the health of black people is not new nor is it only domestic. Dr. William Thompson dmitted to falsifying data published in the journal Pediatrics in 2004. CDC scientists deliberately altered data. The real data showed that giving children vaccine before the age of 36 months increased the risk of autism by 69% and Black children risk of autism triples to 240%.  In 2015, Dr. Wahome Ngare found an antigen in the vaccines administered to 2.3 million girls from the World Health Organization and UNICEF  which causes  miscarriages


    .In America, there has been an erosion of the “pretense” of the American “Melting Pot”. Mainstream practices of abject offensiveness are “apologized away” and quickly removed from public discussion. . Everyday slights, indignities,  and insults that people of color endure are now tolerated by good white  people.  It is the sum total of multiple microaggressions by whites to blacks that has pervasive effect to the stability and peace of this world.
