Black Health:The Countless Epidemics that Plague the Black Community:
The final installment of the Black Health topic focuses on the countless epidemics and how it effects the Black Community.
The 3 Questions
1. Why are Black people statistically at the bottom of so many health issues such as heart disease and prostate cancer?
2. Is our attitude towards our health generally positive or negative and why or why not?
3. What do you feel is the biggest health issue within the Black Community?
PSA to all Black folks….We are dying. Black peoples life expectancy is nearly 3 years less than Whites. But why is that? Why are we more likely to get cancer or heart disease or diabetes? I honestly do not understand some of these statistics. When I go to the gym, I see just as many of Us there as I see of any other race. Everyone eats the same things all in all (fast food, soda, snacks etc). So where does the separation come in? The honest answer may be right in front of Us and as simple as this statement…maybe We can’t do the same things as others do. May be We have to do more to ensure We don’t become another negative health number. May be Our lack of knowledge on health contributes to the destruction of the Black Community?

Black Health: Sexploitation – The Impact of Sex on the Black Community
The third installment of the Black Health topic focuses on sex and how it effects the Black Community.
The 3 Questions
1. Do you feel Planned Parenthood hurts or helps the Black Community?
2. Do you feel that Black culture has become overly sexualized, why or why not?
3. Do you believe that the Black Community would get better results by promoting safe sex or abstinence?
AIDS among other STD’s are growing fastest in the Black Community, specifically among Black women. Blacks are among the leaders both in abortion rate and unintended pregnancies. There are an alarming amount of Black men that engage in affairs, with a decent percentage of them engaged in these sexual activities with people of the same sex. All of these issues have one thing in common…the act of sex. Sex has grown to become one of the biggest factors of health in the Black Community in the past 25 years. It can have an effect on everything from your education to your life expectancy. Sex is complicated even for God, where in one way it is seen as a sin and another way as a blessing. I believe this very same conflict of sex exist in the Black Community and has placed Us in a predicament. Is sex contributing to the destruction of the Black Community?
