    Hi, I am new to the forums. I have a question. As an african american if you were experiencing mental health issues, how likely is it that you would visit a counselor or therapist to address these issues? Would you feel more comfortable if the therapist were African American? Just curious....
    Thank you, :geek:

    Welcome to Destee.com Woizzme! I hope you enjoy your time here, and consider becoming a premium member. To answer your question: All Therapist are trained to encounter and solve every situation. However therapist are human and they bring the skills/problems that are associated with their background. As a result it would be logical/natural for a African American therapist to better understand the complex issues associated with an African American patient.

    Is the american way of picket fences whitest,
    a babe ruth dream come true supreme,
    the constant battle of genders,
    color lines get broken when locomotion rails over,
    most killers are taught from birth in america,
    same as the rapist from an early age,
    through television of needless cartoon,
    to reality of the same ole characters walking perceptively brand spanking new,
    the repetition of your sanity that cannot get out to trip free,
    i watch my mind and all bodies of existence,
    the rhythm of knowing by listening and watching,
    mouth shut moving silently without a strut stepping correct,
    check yourself inside the mirror of scapegoat,
    or cloak another mindset who was open to righteousness,
    america is your psychology from the cradles to the early closed caskets.
