*Sigh* More pointless biased studies on black people designed to make the white man superior.

Kneegrows use large quantities of drugs starting at an early age and build up a tolerance for them, which can negate the effectiveness of pain medication. Add the propensity of kneegrows to bitch about everything, their paranoia that doctors want to use them for medical experiments, and their well known drug seeking behavior when dealing with medical personnel, and itÂ’s no wonder studies show poor outcomes in pain management.
Instead of being able to help kneegrows deal with chronic pain, medical professionals find that kneegrows are themselves a pain!
Paranoia that doctors want to use them for experiments? Well if there is paranoia, then it's there because it's happened in America before. That's common knowledge. That didn't come out of thin air. And assuming your white, you guys are known as the notorious prescription drug abusers, not us, since your going there. Very hypocritical.

Drug use doesn't matter. Blacks and whites have nothing in common.

yes, blacks are not as tough as whites and can't take pain. They whine and groan over quite trivial injuries or illnesses. This is the melanin superiority of the cosmic gods!

LOL Right. No wonder why I don't trust these studies by white people. I'd rather have a black person do these studies who tell the truth rather than spread lies like these white researchers do.

They certainly waste alot of time and money doing studies on ppl who are supposed to be "inferior". What's the point to keep performing these obviously biased studies, if blacks are indeed the weak ones, there would be no need to right? Recessive genes vs. Dominant genes, who has which one now? I forgot.

Exactly. For a group of people that consider us to be inferior, they sure do like to make all these comparison studies to us in an attempt to make them feel superior to us. I can't think of the last time they did a comparison to Asians or Hispanics but it's always black people since we are their greatest competitor. They don't want to admit that we are physically superior to them and have their egos crushed so they make all these false research claims to make us and non-whites feel inferior to them.

The one with 8 year more life expectancy...and apparently a much higher threshold for pain...not saying that blacks are candy asses...just examining the data.

I'm glad TN looks bad to you. That way the entire state remains better off than the one where you currently reside.

Maybe because they care about you??? If they hated you they would not put these studies and let you keep dying from these outcomes or diseases.

Oh be serious. The purpose of allowing blacks to remain in this world is for experimentation only. Their existence is pretty useless otherwise.

What the hell are you talking about?If our existence is useless as you say, then why do you whites constantly study black peoples melanin and our physiology 24/7 and make medicines for yourselves like tanning pills? You hate us, but secretly need us, because of our melanin which is the key to your survival.
