Diversity and Inclusion Director Decries the Racism That Causes Alcohol Consumption – Opinion

At Mercer University, they’re concerned about health.

Hence, the Mason, Georgia college’s director of Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives has pinpointed a “public health crisis”: racism.

An article by Dr. Ansley Bucher, published on The Den school news website, states that the emergency of judging people based on skin color is now a matter of grave concern.

She notes she’s not alone:

Local and state officials across the nation have declared racism an emergency or public health crisis. The American Public Health Association states that these declarations can be a significant first step towards advancing racial equality and justice. However, they must be followed with the allocation of resources as well as strategic actions.

Only two Georgia governments have announced the same — there’s a great need to “educate Georgians on this health crisis.”

As for an area of said emergency’s emanation, Ansley fingers maternity:

According to Dr. Jacob Warren (Rufus Harris Endowed chair and director of Center for Rural Health and Health Disparities), rural Black women experience twice the rate of maternal mortality than rural white females, research by the National Institutes of Health Center of Excellence at the Mercer School of Medicine. Dr. Warren’s research has also established that no rural county in Georgia has a maternal-fetal specialist — a doctor who helps care for pregnant patients who are having complications or high-risk pregnancies.

Additionally, minorities “suffer greater racial disparities in food insecurity when compared to their white, non-Hispanic counterparts.”

In other words, 7.1% of white people are at risk for food insecurity compared with 17.2% among Hispanics or almost 22% among non-Hispanic Blacks. It is nearly three times that of whites.

The report also pointed out that 19% of Georgia’s population, which is approximately 2 million children, lives in regions that are not able to afford fruits and vegetables as well as dairy products. These areas are called food deserts.

The risk for chronic obstructive and/or restrictive pulmonary diseases is higher in non-whites.

COPD ranks as the fourth leading cause for death in America. … Communities within the lowest socio-economic status are 14 times more likely to have a respiratory disease such as asthma, tuberculosis and lung cancer.

Furthermore, she asserts redlining relegates “Black, indigenous, Hispanic and other minority neighborhoods” to “areas with poorer land quality, less access to healthy foods and voter disenfranchisement.”

If I accurately understand, they’re made to drink and smoke:

Research shows that socioeconomic status has a significant impact on certain communities, even when we take into account social determinants. Black and Hispanic persons had higher levels of secondhand smoke exposure and were more likely engage in alcohol or tobacco consumption. This could explain why these people have higher rates of COPD.

We’re living in revelational times. Ubiquitously, there’s tremendous talk of “structural racism”:

The Commander-in Chief agrees:

If racism is doubtlessly embedded into America’s systems, such could only be known if it has been discovered. If the jig has been up, it will be easy to identify the mechanism and remove them immediately.

Yet, for Joe Biden and others so far, mum’s the word.

It is certain that someone will eventually break the silence.

Meanwhile, we’re being robustly informed of structural racism’s egregious effects.

Are certain people smoking, drinking and developing COPD due to racial prejudice?

Dr. Ansley booker believes so.

Once the presumably-upcoming whistleblower emerges, America’s public health crisis will hopefully be ended for good.
