• African Americans have twice the mortality from stroke compared with Caucasians.
• African Americans have more severe and disabling strokes compared with Caucasians.
• African American women have a lower 1-year survival following ischemic stroke (caused by a blood clot) compared with Caucasians.
• African Americans have twice the risk of first ever strokes compared with Caucasians.
• Among those aged 20 to 44 years of age, African Americans are 2.4 times more likely to have a stroke compared with Caucasians.
That's excellent news, anyway we can get the rates up?

You dumb buck, Nigguhs have more chance of dying with melanoma, your shit-colored skin disguises it more, so by the time you find out you may have it, you'll already have a 25% chance of being dead within the year - unlike White folks who are a little over 10% lol

Personally, I hope all you nogs do go round thinking that skin cancer doesn't effect you, then maybe your plague will be gone sooner.

The thing is, Negro, when you think something is risky you can take precautions, but if you think it is not risky then you may not. It's like comparing a Negro running through a field with "Warning minefield" thinking its melanin will stop the blast and shrapnel, while the non-Negro takes a detour or treads VERY carefully.

Uhh, Clemm?
"But with less than half of melanomas in African Americans diagnosed at an early stage (compared to 74 percent in Hispanics and 84 percent in Caucasians) and survival rates hovering around 77 percent (versus 91 percent for Caucasians), doctors caution that it's not a disease that should be ignored."
