Revival: A time of awakened interest; reviving what belonged to an earlier time, but now, coming into new importance and significance previously denied for such a time as this. (askdrj)

New York Mayor Bill de Blasio agreed with The Public Design Commission and approved the decision to place Dr. J. Marion Sims statue in the cemetery where he was buried. The scriptures are clear: …all those who accept Jesus Christ as Savior must not identify people by race, or income level or slavery (Galatians 3:26-28). Everyone who comes to Jesus Christ is identified by the oneness of “faith” and faith alone in our creator and His Son, Jesus Christ. There is no partiality, nor is there another passageway or intermediary, nor mediator into His divine kingdom. One might ask, “How can this be?” Unfortunately, acts are committed on people because of their skin color or other reasons of prejudice. We are speaking about spiritual things. You recall when Jesus was asked about the seven brothers…(who had no children and all of them died. The wife (according to custom) was passed on to the next brothers and sequence? The question was asked about the wife who had been married many times; Jesus told them (Matthew 12:23; 22:25-30), “There is neither marrying nor be given in marriage at the resurrection.” When the veil of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom (Matthew 27:51) that broke down the middle wall partition. No more separation, racism and turning up noses. We have immediate access to His grace through His resurrection.  The bible does not condone slavery or abortions. You remember Shiphrah and Puah, the midwives: (Exodus 1:15) who were important enough for their names to be memorialized in the Bible). The Pharaoh ordered them to kill the Hebrew babies. They bravely defied the Pharaoh’s orders and refused to kill the babies! Who has given authority to kill babies? Not God Almighty! There is a highly intelligent adversary who lurks around to immediately snatch away consciences, the moral compass which tells right from wrong. (abstract-askdrj)

“This week, “Hidden Brain is returning to our archives to grapple with the troubling history of medical experimentation on African Americans and how that history connects to the unequal medical care African Americans still receive today. Black patients continue to receive less pain medication for broken bones and cancer. Black children receive less pain medication that white children for appendicitis. One reason for this is that many people inaccurately believe that blacks literally have thicker skin than whites and experience less pain. The failure to recognize the pain of black patients can be tracked far back in the history of American medicine. Dr. James Marion Sims, a 19th-century physician, has been dubbed the father of modern gynecology. He’s honored by three statues across the United States, one of which describes him as treating both empresses and slave women.”  This week, we consider what — and whom — this inscription leaves out. Invisible in his shadow are the enslaved women on whom he experimented. Today, they are unknown and unnamed except for three: Anarcha, Lucy, and Betsey. We speak with Dr. Vanessa Gamble, a physician and historian, to investigate Dr. Sims’ complicated legacy. He perfected a surgery that continues to help women today, but he practiced this technique through experimental surgeries on unanesthetized enslaved women. Hidden Brain also spoke with poet Bettina Judd. She helps us connect the experiences of Anarcha, Lucy, and Betsey to the ways black patients are treated today.”] “The present work examines beliefs associated with racial bias in pain management, a critical health care domain with well-documented racial disparities. Specifically, this work reveals that a substantial number of white laypeople and medical students and residents hold false beliefs about biological differences between blacks and whites and demonstrates that these beliefs predict racial bias in pain perception and treatment recommendation accuracy. It also provides the first evidence that racial bias in pain perception is associated with racial bias in pain treatment recommendations. Taken together, this work provides evidence that false beliefs about biological differences between blacks and whites continue to shape the way we perceive and treat black people—they are associated with racial disparities in pain assessment and treatment recommendations.”( of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States)We are witnesses today that the CoronaVirus Pandemic by plan or other, African Americans and some other nationalities are subjected to greater attacks than other nationalities.(askdrj)  [Hidden Brain is hosted by Shankar Vedantam and produced by Maggie Penman, Jennifer Schmidt, Rhaina Cohen, and Renee Klahr.
