Of course the focus is on the untreated depression in the black community instead of the unprecedented increase in suicide among young black men since 1985!

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have statistics that show a recent significant increase in suicide deaths among young black men—from 354 in 1987 to 536 in 1993. Despite the statistics, there’s a myth in the black community that blacks do not commit suicide. "Suicide is a white thing, it’s not a black thing," the myth claims. The truth is that suicide is more prevalent among young black men; in fact, according to a recent study, it is the third leading cause of death among black men." What is more frightening is the rates of suicide among black boys 5-11 has DOUBLED since 1993 and since 2003 for the first time in the history of the US more black children are killing themselves than white!

"Researchers speculate that suicide rates may be higher for black children for various reasons, including the possibility that they may have more exposure to violence and aggression than white children and be less likely to get help for depression and suicide attempts. In addition, black children tend to go through puberty at a younger age, and research suggests that children are more likely to harm themselves after puberty." (emphasis mine) Seriously? It seems our children have ALWAYS had more exposure to violence and aggression, but were not killing themselves! What's really going on? Other theories include drug and alcohol abuse, the easy availability of guns, poverty, the high unemployment rate, and the pressures of young middle class blacks fighting racism in corporate America.

Don't be distracted! Truth is Prescription medication is the culprit behind the suicides! Specifically the Meth in the form of ADHD medication and anti depression drugs that are now given to children as young as 4! They have been knowing for years that these drugs are dangerous! "from 1980-1995, suicide among black youth ages 10-14 increased 233% and in black youth ages 15-19 suicide rates increased 126%. For black youth in the southern region of the nation, there was an increase of 214%."

"Between 1995 and 1999, antidepressant use increased 580% in the under 6 population and 151% in the 7-12 age group. In 2004, the FDA ordered that a "black box" label be placed on antidepressants warning that they can cause suicide in children and adolescents."

"A recent study by Getahun and colleagues found a 70 percent increase in the number of ADHD diagnoses among African-American children, with a 90 percent increase among African-American girls. This is compared to smaller increases in other groups" They are quick to warn ; "Children with untreated ADHD are more likely to have problems in school because they are easily distracted and have difficulty learning. Untreated ADHD also impacts social relationships because children with ADHD often don’t get along well with others. An additional consequence of untreated ADHD is an increase in physical injuries due to hyperactivity and disruptive outbursts." This of course means more black children on killer medications and more black children committing suicide....Neither choice is acceptable!

An Ohio cop was placed on leave after cruelly calling the death of a Black Lives Matter activist "a happy ending.”

Fairborn Police are investigating whether Officer Lee Cyr violated the department's social media policy with his crass Facebook comment about MarShawn McCarrel, who killed himself on Ohio’s Statehouse steps Monday.

“Love a happy ending,” Cyr wrote Wednesday in response to an article about the 23-year-old’s suicide.

Placed on leave? lol he should be fired immediately

such a shame.. something in his own head took him out of this world. He probably thought killing himself on the steps of that building would mean something deep.. and it will.. for a minute or two.. and then it will be completely forgotten.

Did he really believe that black lives mattered?.. or was it just something to say.. something to do.. ?
Did he imagine himself one of those monks that set themselves on fire to protest the vietnam war?

If he would have killed himself in his own home.. or in a car somewhere.. or jumped off a bridge or something.. I would have a bit more sympathy. But the location says that his suicide was contrived.. and political.. like that of a suicide bomber.. meaning.. it was meant to signify something other than his own death. It was meant to say something.. but what does it say? What difference does killing yourself make to people who don't value your life?

Life is too precious to throw-away over some socio-political ideals. It would have been better for him not to get involved with this at all.

.. context is everything.

He's gone now, and of course everyone's gonna call him selfish and all kinds of other bullcrap that mean absolutely nothing to the deceased, thinking somehow they're better for it.

So with those hypocritical useless judgments thrown aside, one could wish he dug deeper than the shallow viewpoint of the world and found a reason to go on. He didn't, so respect toward those who are feeling loss the hardest.

Black and Latino custodial workers @ the Capitol Bldg said it was degrading to clean up the debris left by white supremacist who violently stormed the Capitol Bldg. They even had to clean up smeared feces. One staffer said they were used to cleaning up after white supremacist (referring to racist Congressional members). Those who were there that day feared for their life b/c they weren't given any protection.
Mother Jones posted a list of "law makers" nationwide who promoted/assisted in the insurrection on our government. ALL should be ousted, stripped of pensions, charged with sedition and felony murder.
If black folks are present at a crime, whether they participated or not, they're charged with as many violations as white folks can conjure up. Felony murder is top of their list. Why not for white domestic terrorist?
25,000 National Guardsmen are set up to protect for Biden/Harris inauguration! Authorities are AGAIN saying that white domestic terrorist are the largest threat in American and to the democratic process.
NOT Black Lives Matter protestors, NOT even foreign terrorist, but American grown white men who are angry about all the white privilege they have.
