<quoted text>I think you may be oversimpliflying things a bit here. I agree that there's an issue and it is expedient that we get to the bottom of things as quickly as possible, however with the excellerated increase of breast cancer in Black women we shouldn't trivialize things by not considering BOTH the internal genetic conditioning of the Black woman along with a possible systematic EXTERNAL plot on the health of the Black woman too.
The stats are just too disproportionate for you not to look at this situation more holistically.
I don't believe there's a LARGE plot. There may well be isolated pockets where the terrible discriminations of the past still exist, but i do not think there's a plot.
It's not that simple. We know that sickle cell anemia is not a "plot," and yet I bet there are areas where people who have that disease do not get adequate treatment. The reasons may be as simple as discrimination, or socially based -- for instance, inadequate transportation. For poor people with this disease, the healthcare network may well be inadequate.
I know of a young man who died of juvenile diabetes at the age of 35. He finally got a good job with adequate health care, but it was too late. His body had suffered too much damage over the many years his health care was inadequte or completely absent.
Genetically it appears that Black women may be more likely to get the "triple negative" kind of breast cancer, which is aggressive and for which we don't have as many effective treatments. There have been some recent breakthroughs but a lot needs to be done. It's not as simple as sickle cell genetics so the research is much more complicated.
But other factors creep in again that I've already mentioned, such as lack of health insurance, inadequate transportation -- all kinds of things.
You can believe whatever you want. Your experiences are your experiences and I'm sure your conclusions have validity, but I don't believe you're on a useful path for sorting this out.
