    City of Madison declares racism a public health crisis


    https://www.channel3000.com/news/cit...sis/1132518840

    MADISON, Wis. - The city of Madison signed on to a statewide resolution declaring racism as a public health crisis Tuesday.

    The move brings no additional programming or funding, but community leaders who run programs for youth of color and people of color in Madison say this is a good step for the city to take.

    “I’m glad that someone is recognizing it as a health issue, because then maybe now we’ll take greater measures in addressing the issues.” said Alexander Gee Jr., the president and founder of the Nehemiah Center for Urban Leadership and Development.

    Gee said this is important not just for systemic issues and policy, but for the effects the culture the predominantly white city can have as well.

    “It’s now been proven that the stress caused by the pressures of racism is a leading indicator of health disparities for African Americans,” he said. “We now know that because of stress, we, African Americans, are contracting diseases faster than our white counterparts and then dying sooner.”

    The city of Madison joins 32 other organizations in Wisconsin that have signed on to the resolution and agree something more needs to be done.

    Ruben Anthony, the president and CEO of the Urban League of Greater Madison, said especially with national conversation on immigration and the shooting of unarmed black people, the health of people of color is in danger.

    “The messages that we get from our national leaders and the climate that we’re creating from saying certain people are not welcome in this country,” Anthony said. “I haven’t seen something like that in my lifetime.”

    Anthony is hopeful Madison’s move will get things back on track, but beyond passing the resolution, both he and Gee Jr. hope the city continues efforts by helping organizations such as theirs.

    “More entities have to step up and start talking and really start doing something and measuring the impact and making sure that the cultures are really healthy,” Anthony said.

    “We now know that because of stress, we, African Americans, are contracting diseases faster than our white counterparts and then dying sooner.”
    Stress?

    Possibly...but not caused by white racism.

    Stress caused by your continuing failure to control your base impulses, resulting in poor life choices that in turn lead to poverty, broken homes, generational dependency, homelessness, drug addiction and violent crime...for instance: young black men 18 to 35 are about 4 percent of the total population, yet commit over 50 percent of homicides in the US.

    The fact that you're grasping at a straw held out as an excuse by stupid white Bolsheviks, to absolve yourself and blame whitey for your problems, further proves my point Mr. Gee.

    Or the other way around.

    Bleeding heart Marxism has destroyed black communities. You can see it in any city dominated by the left. They reward, incentivize and excuse “bad life choices”. Then the left blames it on racism, providing yet another excuse not to try and a disincentive to strive to better oneself.

    The left: “Evil people are holding you down, and it has made you permanently disabled via past injustice. You will fail, but it’s not your fault. There is no way for you to succeed. But don’t worry, because if you give us (Marxists) control, we will care for you, and punish all evildoers.”

    This used to be taboo until Bush era ; part of credit shoud go to Trump leadership team like Rod Rosenstein for setting a new tone from the top who made history by becoming first top US Justice official to use the term 'white terrorism' after Texas shooting few weeks ago.

    It's not their fault. It was caused by male oppression and toxic masculinity.

    For the most part any number of mental disorders.

    I have one myself. I smoke hand rolled cigarettes without filters. I know damn well it's not good for me. And if I WISHED to stop it I could. I just don't feel strongly enough to stop. But, I'm not blaming anyone for it, nor do I want sympathy and understanding.

    What I said...

    Maybe Mr. Gee is going to try and tell me how my white privilege prevents $#@! cops from killing white people.

    $#@!ers owe ME reparations, not the other way around.

    Reparations for over a century of bloody civil war, of sloth, stupidity, civil unrest, burnt out cities, trillions and trillions of dependency payments and a violent crime wave that continues to this day, where blood has run ankle deep at times.

    And now to see all the ceaseless griping and misdirected outrage and eternal bitching and moaning, being used and hijacked by a bunch of idiot white Marxists to overthrow the entire nation...that's the last $#@!ing straw.
