Genetic testing raises bias worries

I think YOU NEED to KNOW.

The measure has languished in Congress for 12 years. But now, those lobbying for the law believe this may be the year they finally succeed.
The Genetic Information Nondiscrimination Act passed the House in April. And although it has stalled in the Senate, supporters are optimistic. The Senate passed a similar bill in 2003 and 2005, and President Bush has endorsed the legislation.

and look at what happens to BLACK PEOPLE

In 1998, for example, a U.S. appeals court cited the federal Civil Rights Act when it ruled that Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory for years had improperly tested black workers for sickle cell anemia.

That's at WORK. You know how our PEOPLE go about looking for WORK and harassed at work for URINE TESTS. This time it will be BLOOD.

It's going to get very TOUCHY in the NATION. Count on IT.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
