As hordes of angry protesters, violent rioters, and careless looters tear up America’s cities as a show of support and solidarity for black people, not a single social justice warrior anywhere is addressing one of the biggest killers of black people in America today: cancer.
According to the American Cancer Society, African Americans “have the highest death rate and shortest survival of any racial or ethnic group in the U.S. for most cancers. In 2019 alone, 73,030 black people reportedly died from cancer, while another 202,260 black people were newly diagnosed with cancer.
These are pretty big numbers for a population group that represents just under 14 percent of the total American population. And it is even more alarming when considering the fact that health-destroying cancer “treatments” like chemotherapy and radiation are often the true causes of death in cancer patients.
While the American Cancer Society does not reveal what it believes to be the underlying cause behind why more black people are dying, and at faster rates, from cancer compared to other groups, we suspect that it might have to do with what types of treatments they are receiving.
Though there is a lack of concrete data to prove it at this point, the possibility exists that black people are more often given standard “slash and burn” treatments because this is what the system offers as a default. This is especially true for patients who are covered with low-income, government-provided insurance plans.
Another factor, and one that we have brought up before, is a lack of understanding within much of the black community about the importance of nutrition and supplementation. Vitamin D, for instance, is something that a lot of black people should be supplementing with because their dark skin color prevents them from receiving adequate amounts of it from natural exposure to sunlight.
Rioting will only make black areas even bigger “food deserts,” while abortion takes black lives from another angle
For years, leftists have complained that many black neighborhoods are “food deserts,” meaning there is a lack of grocery stores and farmers markets that sell healthy food in these areas. As a result, many black people are stuck eating fast food or junk food from their local convenience stores, which is a tragedy for their health.
Various solutions have been presented, but what good are any of these when black people are now destroying their own neighborhoods and ransacking businesses to protest perceived racial injustices? Rioting, looting and destroying will only exacerbate the problem of food deserts by driving out the very businesses that exist to help poorer black people improve their economic standing while maintaining access to healthy food.
And let us not forget about abortion, which targets black people to a far greater degree than any other racial group. Black neighborhoods are littered with abortion clinics, which claim more black lives than law enforcement ever could.
Statistics show that abortion has claimed the lives of more black Americans than any other cause of death combined since 1973. In the United States specifically, the abortion rate for black women is four times that of white women, with more than one-third of all abortions being performed on unborn black babies.
This is a holocaust of unspeakable proportions, and one that never gets mentioned in the fight for racial equality. One black man dies during a questionable incident and the entire country erupts into mass chaos. But tens of thousands of black people die from cancer and abortion and almost nobody seems to care. Does this make any sense to you?
