From Don Cornelius To Lee Thompson Young: Why Black Men Are Killing Themselves

From mental health issues to chronic health illnesses, there is a growing stream of black men choosing to end their own lives.

Why?

Read: Don Cornelius Death Ruled A Suicide

One of the most prevalent views within the African-American community is that we do not intentionally kill ourselves. That suicide is something only white people or spiritually-weak people do. That suicide is a cop-out, and that to even consider it is a “punk move”. However, these apparent suicides and clinical research clearly indicate that African-Americans do commit suicide.

The Sad (And Real) Facts On Black Suicide

According to the American Association of Suicidology, in 2005, 1,992 suicides were completed by African-Americans and that suicide was the third leading cause of death among African-American youth. The Centers for Disease Control reported that between 1999 and 2004, young African-American males had the highest rate of suicide. This latter finding is consistent with research that males are more likely to complete suicides whereas females are more likely to attempt suicide.

READ: Black Suicide: The Truth Behind The Stigma

One reason for the difference is that men tend to choose more lethal means of death than women. But please do not take this to mean that African-American women do not commit suicide; the same 2005 data from the American Association of Suicidology reports of the 1,992 completed suicides among African-Americans that 371 of those deaths were by females. It is also important to note that, generally, there tends to be a underreporting of this behavior, so the numbers may be higher than those cited.

The Black Suicide Stigma MUST Change

The deaths of bright celebrity starts, including Seau and Cornelius are truly heartbreaking…as are the countless deaths of others in the African American community who felt they had nowhere else to turn. Until the Black community takes bolder steps to abandon this crippling suicide stigma, many of the medical community fear that these tragic statistics will only increase.

Suicide numbers.

38,000 whites commit suicide anually

150 blacks commit suicide anually

See the big difference. You whites don't even like yourselves. I'm sure the OP has contemplated suicide several times in it's life.

Is the well-documented suicide spike because they're tired of being synonymous with crime, tired of being at the bottom of the barrell in American society, tired of declining in desirability and losing their women to other races.....or all of the above?

You have your numbers mixed up. I think you mean 150 blacks commit homicide every day.

As an increasing amount of black males in America these days are feeling more unloved, more unwanted and more expendable, similiar reports germane to that initially profiled by the OP for this thread are certain to be on the rise, as will be the cases.

Nothing wrong that! IR is rising for black women and black men.

and there's probably little 'Q' that some of the researchers and/or in the above article are indeed pro-psychologists.

Is there anything you blacks will own up to? White people and spiritually weak people? The racism you blacks eat 3 times a day supplied by your own is enough to kill you alone and it is. What a sorry tribe you are. When I see black people in Africa starving to death with their babies starving right along side of them I wish it was you there instead of them.

It would only be natural and expected that black males in America are killing themselves at alarming rates, since they're becoming angrier today more than ever which can sometimes lead to feelings of hopelessness or depression. Even concerned blacks have reported this. Sometimes, certain other motives are the chosen avenue to remove themselves from the CJS after they've done bad.

So you look up information to prove that black men are insignificant, but why?

The CDC has formed an opinion concerning the American black male & suicide & the popular consensus is that black males in America have been born into subjugation since the days of slavery when we used to brutalize them for not picking our White cotton fast enough, gazing at our White women with their eyes bugging out & their tongues salivating, running away from the White masters plantation or just lynching them & burning them alive at the stake for sport, ever since those days of abject misery & horror for them, life in White America has only gotten worse for them, we have marginalized them, segregated them, beat them down, killed their leaders, divided & conquered them & now their own black women have voluntarily joined forces with us to cripple any hopes for a viable future for them, now that can make even the strongest black man just kill himself in utter hopelessness & despair.

The news and info is becoming mainstream media, practically - easy to see and common knowledge. In today's generation, black men per capita are found to embark on suicide more than any other gender/race. These reports, often made by his own brethren, were designed to raise awareness on the issue and try to help.
