You are obviouly a passionate advocate for Brest cancer research. I salute you in your efforts if you are genuine. It is a plague that must be erdicated as all cancer should be.
Oh sugar I'm not new to this forum. But thanks for playing! I don't care what the "dynamic" is or was. YOU want to disrupt a serious discussion to a personal vendetta.

This is just online. Let it go. Let people be who they are, and just try to improve yourself.

IF I am genuine? Paranoid much???

Uh ... yah ... this thread is ON a breast cancer forum. It may also be on some other forum, but I have to say that I bristled at the assumption that large groups of people think all Hispanics look alike. Get out into a wider world and you will find people with the "Hispanic" label all over the place and clearly a wide variety of "looks."

Don't look now but this is also true of Blacks and Whites. To the Japanese, Chinese don't look Japanese, and vice-versa, but for MANY groups, appearances vary widely.

But researchers can get past all of that. Under the microscope, only genes count.

I'm seeing this from the BREAST CANCER FORUM. Pleae don't use my posts as a sprinboard for insulting other people, but I figured out a LONG time ago that not everyone looks like me, speaks like me, eats the foods I grew up with, or has the same cultural references.

That makes me very happy. We deliberately bought a home in a multi-cultural area so our children would not grow up hearing about people of other cultures and races but not knowing them. It worked. They both have a network of friends from many cultures and backgrounds. I have done my part to lower the amount of bigotry in our fine country.

But I am seeing all this from a breast cancer forum. I would appreciate it if YOU would accept that and save any personal vendettas for other threads. Por favor ...

Please explain where I said I was Puerto Rican. I never said that. I am German, Irish, and English. I even listed all the countries my children have in their family tree, and Puerto Rico was never mentioned.

This topic was about BREAST CANCER. YOU chose to make it about "race" even as you explained how wrong that was. You are the one weighed down with assumptions.

Fortunately researchers don't carry your burden, and in spite of people with your attitudes, this article about race and breast cancer will, ultimately, save the lives of some Hispanic women, including Puerto Rican woman whatever their family trees.

ROTFL. What a piece of work you are. You are the one causing it to go nowhere, so ... I'll clarify for you.

You're right. A significant percentage of people of "Hispanic" heritage have some Black folk in their family trees.

We already know that Black women are more prone to developing triple negative breast cancer.

That does NOT mean that the same gene is responsible in women who identify themselves as "Black" as those who identify themselves as "Hispanic."

We need to know whether or not that's true, because researchers have been working to look for a possible genetic link for triple negative breast cancer in Black women.

In another wrinkle, a lot of New World Black women have some Caucasian genes in their family trees because of the ugly history of slavery and its consequences for Black women of that time. White women also get triple-negative.

ALL groups could be responding to the same gene, or a different one. That's important when considering treatments should one be developed for at least some triple-t tumors.

I couldn't care less what a person's racial or ethnic background is. I don't care if you're purple with green spots. I do care that you or your sisters, mother, cousins, or aunts might get triple-t breast cancer in particular. I don't want you to have ANY kind of breast cancer, but if you get triple-t we need to know if there is a genetic pattern.

If the researchers are afraid to ask such questions because of bullies like you, then your actions and attitudes harm those you think of as "your" people.

Puerto Rico is incredibly beautiful. When I went there, I found the people warm and friendly. The food was fantastic, and the beaches breathtakingly beautiful. I hope to go back one day.

Wow -- things just got MUCH better (potentially, at least) for women of color regarding breast cancer.

"University of Cambridge scientists, led by Professor Carlos Caldas, based at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Research Institute at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus, working with BC Cancer Agency scientists in Vancouver (led by Professor Sam Aparicio) have jointly decoded the genetic make-up of triple negative breast cancer, which could lead to more effective treatment."

Now it will be much easier for researchers to determine if there is a genetic component that causes the higher rate of triple-t breast cancer in Blacks and Hispanics. It won't be that long before women at risk can be tested. If that gene is found they can explore their options *before* they develop breast cancer. They can make medical choices such as losing weight if needed, quitting smoking, getting more exercise, and aggressive monitoring of their breasts. For instance, the use of breast MRI might be wise for women carrying this gene.

Of course this will affect some white women as well. there will be an explosion of research.

This is EXACTLY why race has to be ignored when it comes to breast cancer research, except as a tool to answer questions. This discovery will save lives.

Dear Gail:

I appreciate you taking the time to clarify your intentions. Please understand I am not using your post as a spring board, I am replying directly to TMP..., it has nothing to do with you,or this group subject, I understood clearly what you want to do, but since he is attacking me I responded. You see, in my personal opinion, he need some soul searching, since he cant not stand the fact that puertoricans are not only Spanish descendants, which is a very normal behavior in many puertoricans descendants who live in the United States, they do not embrace our origins, because most of them simply dont even know what is been a puertorican, since they werent born here, or have never set their feet on this island. I just wanted to make that point clear,but I dont want to damage in any way your good intentions about health and the terrible cancer disease. I will back off.

Yeah, back the F*** off.

Exactly!

You talk out of your ass. I know my Puerto Rican heritage.

Not not all Puerto Ricans have a dominant "afrocentric" identity.

We are of all 3 races amd many nationalities... Some races are more dominant than in others.

You agressively try to pursue your ideas down people throats like you are trying to prove something to YOURSELF.

A shrinks chair would be of better service to you than the nonsense you spout on TOPIX.

I have been too Puerto Rico countless times and know the island probably better than you do, in spite, of me not living there.

Quik the insular thinking and stop trying to label people.

You know crap!
