...When a Racist Society is the True Culprit

For more than a decade researchers have invested over $1 billion to study the
connection between race and disparities in health. It’s a staggering amount of
time and money that has heeded no substantial findings in the eyes of many
researchers.
That’s because, according to these researchers, disparities in health aren’t
connected to race or ancestry.

“What we found in the literature published from 2007 to 2013 was basically
nothing,” Jay Kaufman, the lead author of the first study to examine available
genetic data for evidence that explains racial-health disparities, told The
Atlantic.

In other words, it seems that the idea of health disparities being caused solely

by someone’s skin color or ancestry may not be as true as many have long
believed.

Instead, a host of socially constructed disadvantages that

plague communities of color and low-income neighborhoods
could truly be the culprit behind disparities in health and persistent gaps in
life expectancy.

If you recall some years ago,

There was a university ( think u. of maryland), do research on
if the violence that black men demonstrated had to do with
their genetics.

I was like, 'really'? Given this country's background, they wanna
hone in on black folk being violent???

I remember giving a speech to a graduating class of scientists and engineers on that very topic. I told them don't think that they have arrived and are now safe. Because it will be some of your very colleagues that came up with scientific reasons why you were inferior. I reminded them of the "science" that said we have two extra tendons in out legs. That's why we ran so fast. No MD ever challenged that BS.

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
