THERE ARE ALL SORTS OF PEOPLE WHO SUFFER WITH SUCH ISSUES...AND CONTRARY TO WHAT MANY HERE WOULD LOVE TO ASSERT...WM SUFFER WITH DEPRESSION AND MENTAL ILLNESS QUITE OFTEN!
*ALSO I'VE KNOWN MANY WHITE GIRLS/FEMALES ON MEDICATIONS TO HELP THEM MANAGE THEIR DISORDERS!

excellent thread. i know for a FACT that many of our people suffer depression alone and isolated; afraid to seek help or to apathetic to do so.
the important thing is that, when we do decide to seek help, make sure we seek it from people who can identify with us.
Agree.

This has always been an irrelevant argument because death can come for us at anytime. It is a family's responsibility to financially prepare for sudden death. Now to my knowledge I don't know any life insurance policy that pays out for suicides but that doesn't prevent a family from saving of paying into a Roth IRA for example.
You're clueless. Grief has nothing to do with finances.

Grief is part of the human condition. Do what most grievers do, GET OVER IT.

My ex-husband's caseload included a Black male who was gay, bipolar and was HIV positive.

It kind of makes one's own problems seem rather trivial in light of the hand that male was dealt.

Comments all over this forum can be considered a big source of proof, for starters. Most research, studies and accompanying articles on such pressing subjects are written by your own people, not "white racists". Anger and denial all over forums ain't gonna change the facts.

Black Male Suicide Rate Is Cause For Alarm

http://www.highbeam.com/doc/1P1-79465844.html

``Although suicide is prevalent among whites, an increasing number of blacks, particularly teenage males, are taking their own lives. Among youth between the ages of 10 and 14, the rate for white suicides increased 120 percent, but the suicide rate for black youth in the same age category increased an alarming 233 percent.``
