Good Monday Family,
This article speaks to what my sister Ella and I were talking about over the weekend. Unfortunately there is not a Black doctor over 50 years old that is ‘surprised’ at the findings. We saw it in training and we still see it everyday! If anything, the disparity is probably even worse than recorded. (1)
“Morbidity” is usually not recorded – just “Mortality” !
The abuse, pain and suffering ‘dispensed’ based on race and ethnicity is rarely ever reported in any research study.
WE NEED NO MORE STUDIES ACTION FROM THE GOVERNMENT
Unfortunately the authors missed the boat when they asked for ‘more research’! The acceptable documentation started in 1983 with Margaret Heckler’s report ( the first of its kind from an established ‘white’ mainstream organization ). Black doctors have written about it dating back to 1970’s when Richard Allen Williams did a book on medicine in African Americans and before that.
In 1857 Frederick Douglas reminded people:
“ Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress. In the light of these ideas, Negroes will be hunted at the North and held and flogged at the South so long as they submit to those devilish outrages and make no resistance, either moral or physical.”
Today they are hunted down while jogging or at home in bed, even when they are practicing Medicine, Pharmacy or Dentistry. We do not need studies say Joseph Lee Webster MD., of Tallahassee Florida – we need ACTION from GOVERNMENT at all levels, starting in Congress and the Supreme Court and working all the way down to the local ‘home owners association’ and PTO!
Finally, it should be reported to WHO and the United Nations as ‘on going hate crime and ethnic cleansing’ through “Organized Medicine” !
