[2/2/12] Suicide and Black Men

Don Cornelius' death raises awareness around this pressing issue in Black America.

``While many in our community believe that suicide is a "white person's issue, more and more research is finding that suicide rates among African-Americans are on the rise, especially among young Black men.``

White males account for 75% of all suicides.

More black males are found eliminating themselves by their own hand for reasons that range from not wanting to be charged for their crimes to insecurity and failed relationships with women. Much proof exists and Dorner was a publicized example. His wife also left him previously, which probably furthered his rage.

Members of your own brethren - those with genuwine concern and willing to be honest and objective - are those conducting this research and publishing the journals so take it up with them....pressure them to keep quiet and keep from blowing your cover.

This report summarizes trends in suicide among blacks aged 10-19 years in the United States during 1980-1995 and indicates that suicidal behavior among all youths has increased. Suicide among black girls aged 10-19 has in fact gone down over the period. All of the rise which the CDC reports as occurring among "black youth" occurs among boys.

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?

Yes,no,maybe...well how the f*ck do you know what we think then!

I think you should run along and find Chad...worry about what he's up to...since that's where your head,heart and spirit seems to lie!

Thank you...but those of us who live in the real world,are sane and who actually have an education are capable of reading and understanding what the findings that were in the report mean...in the real everyday world!

As usual...this idiot is attempting to single out bm as if there is just some disproportionate number of bm now committing suicide...and as if others aren't!

Now stop making sense...you're on Topix!

*Now just as...what for you...unlike any other...normal person....would be a healthy distraction....I want you to do the research on the number of white teenage suburban runaways are reported every year...white teenage runaways who live on the streets of America!

How about you take a break from your clearly unnatural and unhealthy obsession with bm....kay sport?

I'm sure that you'd be amazed at the numbers...Pssst...many of these children...especially the girls have been sexually abused prior to running away from their perfect little suburban communities!

So far, no evidence has been presented the recent New Jersey tree-hanging case was anything but your run-of-the-mill black male suicide. Unless new evidence to the contrary shows up, the American people have to assume by default it was suicide as they've seen so many cases historically, and it seems to getting worse.

Per capita, black males have one of the highest suicide rates of all American citizens. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, suicide is the third cause of death among black males between ages 15 and 24, behind homicide and accidents. Even concerned black activists and community pundits are those mostly bringing attention to the issue.
