    i cant wait for the day when its not black people/white people or any other color people. i guess it's different in big cities?? i really cant think of a person with different skin color as being like a separate group from me. it just sounds weird to me to group people like this, we are all people on one world that has been the only home for all people forever one blue bubble floating in a void where all people are together, not apart. i understand the importance because in some places it seems people are being discriminated in opportunity, but i dont know to me it just seems so so weird to always be like black, brown, white. maybe if TV didnt always classify people by their skin color then we could stop too. but i think countries are somewhat very strange too except as a means of reference for location, america? china? peru? all people, visas really shouldnt exist, we should all be able to see our one small world free as we wish in the short time we have.

    I understand the situation because I’m a young black male with Crohn’s and HS and my opinion and trust has dwindled after this 12 year run. It’s relevant today and they think we have a higher tolerance of pain I’ve seen white patients receive better pain control while I’m told to take Tylenol. So I understand the distrust in the medical community that’s governed by white peoples instead of humans.

    I don't even trust the vaccine. I don't trust how fast they put it together, I don't like that they used to test them on POC. I need to get it, but I really don't want to. This coming from a liberal who has had vaccines before.

    It didn't say they believed black people don't feel pain Trevor. It said they believed blacks didn't feel AS MUCH pain. Still ridiculous but get it right please. (And they probably believed it bc blacks are less likely to whine about it!) Also, figuratively, they DO have thicker skin, as in the expression we use for people who don't fall apart when treated poorly or insulted. Sadly, they're probably used to shtty treatment!

    Code switching is a lot like treatment methods used for people on the Asperger's syndrome spectrum. You act a certain way because it is expected, you might not understand, or care/feel the same way , but you know it matters to the other person so you look for tells carefully and respond in a way they expect...

    a lot of people blacks included do not trust the vaccines, there's not enough information going out. The vaccine information that is put out is one sided. We don't get true information on all the people that have suffered with serious side effects and or death, and anybody that speak out has been removed from social media sites or/and called conspirators.

    Chinese debt traps as sponsored by Bank of America and the Normalization and Facilitation of Sub-Prime Mortgages to Minorities also pose a hazard to the independence of Minorities and Displaced Caucasians ("Underclassed", no "White Space" for you! lol, who wants that?). Out here the discussion becomes one of what "White" can be... who should be excluded...

    Hidden racism is a lot more dangerous than racism that is up front and out in the open because it makes it harder to maneuver though or even deal with when placed in certain situations in life . It's best to see the op's first before they see you , so you can intellectually deal with the situation and have more control of the outcome to have things work in your favor instead of their's IJS .

    I think that companies want "black" employees to solve the problem. There's a lot more conversation going on, than basic actions. The fixes will likely help everybody, because the problems are universal, but disproportionally affect some groups. Gang Mentatlity, intentionally overlooked by most large companies.

    The opposite is true in Miami. Most clinics are in mostly black areas. Many of my black friends are very scared of the vaccine. Carribean born friends seem much more afraid than continental born US friends. Only Peizer & Moderns are available. I had to start over. It's much safer to get it than risk. the long term effects of CoVid IMHO. After thousands of hours of research. It's not a racial or gender issue. It's a once in a century lethal pandemic.

    To think that black skin is thicker or blacks have a higher threshold to pain. Now that is the most ignorant thing coming from a community that is so book smart, no common sense No after seeing what blacks can do with so little and to give them the equal footing they deserve, and having a can do attitude about almost everything it is a scary scenario for those afraid of blacks.
