Hood Disease: Inner City Oakland Youth Suffering From Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

OAKLAND (KPIX 5) — In the inner city, a health problem is making it harder for young people to learn. The Centers for Disease Control said 30 percent of inner city kids suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The CDC said these children often live in virtual war zones. Doctors at Harvard said they actually suffer from a more complex form of PTSD that some call “hood disease.” Unlike soldiers, children in the inner city never leave the combat zone. They often experience trauma, repeatedly. “You could take anyone who is experiencing the symptoms of PTSD, and the things we are currently emphasizing in school will fall off their radar. Because frankly it does not matter in our biology if we don’t survive the walk home,” said Jeff Duncan-Andrade, Ph.D. of San Francisco State University. In Oakland, about two thirds of the murders last year were actually clustered in East Oakland, 59 people killed.

That goes without saying, for many kids growing up in a world of death and drugs, and hookers, and violence.

When you have a couple of dozen of your friends die before you get out of your teens, and death is routine, even 2 or 3 a month at times, it has an effect that most children don’t experience.

Black leadership has done such a wonderful job since MLK. They should all be so proud.

Actually that is probably not true. If they grew up under those circumstances they would consider that normal and their stress levels would actually be lower. Using the Progressive evolution theories, they would evolve into a higher form of animal within several decades ... look at Chicago or other major cities for verification of this fact.

It’s just an excuse ‘cause PTSD will get you full Disability benefits. They’ll claim it after a stint in the Big House if they didn’t grow up in the ‘hood anyway.

I blame RAP music and the inability of the Parents to raise children properly. Sex has replaced God.

I can see where living in these “war zones” would make one insensitive to many things.

The solution is a dusk to dawn curfew and shoot on site those who break it. I would never really want that but something has to be done.

You haven’t really lived in Oakland until you’ve heard, sometime in the wee hours, the pop-pop-pop of gunfire and no police sirens afterwards.

Well, thank God we are focused on the important things, like rising sea levels in 1000 years, and whether Heather has two married mommies..

No, this will be used to help determine how much all of the affected persons will receive in reparations...

He will doubtless get help before combat veterans do, especially if he says a sex change will fix his mind.

We are living in an increasingly insane world.

My thoughts exactly.

On one hand, I have no doubt children that see shootings and death frequently have stress and fear on a regular basis.

I can also see "Neighborhood Violence PTSD" being the next "disability" with which to bilk the system for an endless source of income.

They are red crosshatched. The time frame presented doesn't have any MDK, expand the time using the knobs at the top of the map. If you set the start time to the first of the year you will see about 18, which seem kind of low.

Isn't that racist to admit?
