The False Equivalency in the World of HIV
July 28, 2016
My organization, I Choose Life Health and Wellness Center partnered with Alan Haymon and Haymon Entertainment, as well as Pfizer, Inc. and together, over a period of 18 months, visiting 66 cities, in 24 states, tested more than 30 thousand primarily African American men, women and young adults for HIV. During that period, we found 600 plus HIV positive persons with the oldest being a 65 years old woman in Philadelphia, PA and the youngest, a 16-year-old black girl in Seattle, WA and none of those 600 plus Black people that tested positive for HIV, knew that they were infected with the virus; which brings me to the titled of my article, The False Equivalency in the World of HIV. ... read more »

Driving Under Oppression – A Look At Racism Through The Eyes Of A 17 Yr. Old Educated Black Man
July 28, 2016
My only question is why? What is it about us that so many people fear? What is it about Alton Sterling that placed the officer in so much timidity that he had to shoot him repeatedly? What was it about the hard working and innocent cafeteria manager Philando Castile that provoked unnecessary violence from the officer who pulled him over? In a blog published by the Huffington Post, Dr. Joy Degruy, author of the book Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome: America’s Legacy of Enduring Injury and Healing, is interviewed. During this interview she states that "Black people are 'profoundly resilient' but the fact is, they have been traumatized... and white people are afraid. The biggest trauma whites suffer from black people... is a fear of black people." The author of the blog continues by paraphrasing Degruy's words when she says that "The holding onto the secret of the horror of white racism has taken its toll on white people and has caused them to live in fear. So, at the end of the day, white supremacy has traumatized both black and white people. Black people are afraid of a government which has not and will not protect them; white people are afraid that perhaps their injustice, or complicity in the dispensation of injustice, will come back to haunt them." ... read more »
