In February 2009, Samantha Pierce became pregnant with twins. It was a time when things were going really well in her life. She and her husband had recently gotten married. They had good jobs. "I was a kick-ass community organizer," says Pierce, who is African-American and lives in Cleveland. She worked for a nonprofit that fought against predatory lending. The organization was growing, and Pierce had been promoted to management.

The real way racism effects your attitude is when the Democrat propagandists convince you to blame another race for all your troubles...usually on the dubious grounds of past overt racism commited by Democrats.
If President Trump has not looked in to defunding npr...he should. They are no different than any other lib media outlet IMO AND they have bragged in the past about not needing Fed assistance.
What sort of racism leads to the rate of abortion among blacks? Six percent of the population; 35 percent of all abortions. Don’t tell me it’s down to global warming.

I don’t expect sanity from npr. I do expect them to look for creative ways to blame Whitey for all their self-inflicted pathologies.
This entire article is a load of tripe. In fact, looking at “Africans” (as if all blacks only come from Africa and not the middle-east) and saying they’re ok - so it must not be genetics is outright hubris. It’s been almost 200 years since the civil war which is plenty of time for genetic drift. Let’s not even get into the argument of the genetics of which blacks were sold as slaves and which ones did the selling.
Her water broke early while she was under total care and following the system which acted in an unracial manner. You can’t, therefore, blame THE SYSTEM as racist because your numbers are different than white women - how do they compare against hispanic and asian women? Have you considered the cultural differences where drug use (especially among kick-ass community organizers like Obama) is the norm?!
No no... it’s RACISS!
Then, there is this gem embedded into the article:
Now, there is growing consensus that racial discrimination experienced by black mothers during their lifetime makes them less likely to carry their babies to full term.
To which I must ask
Because some yahoo yelled the N-word at them when they were driving through a certain neighborhood in Cleveland about eight years ago? I got called a cracker because I took a shortcut home from a certain black suburb in Pittsburgh at about the same time. I didn't even consider it discrimination, just some yahoo blowing off steam.
Long article saying racism kills black babies b/c discrimination as in being called the n-word or shadowed in stores causes stress in black wimmins. That makes stress hormones which makes black woman to give premature birth. This happens less with Whitey.
Also only in the USA cuz..slavery
Blacks in the middle east are there for the same reason they are in the US: immigration and the slave trade. Most middle easterners are Caucasians.
That whole article ignores the elephant in the room.
Women are warned not to smoke during pregnancy because it raises the risk of fetal loss, premature birth, and low birth rate, all factors which combine to create a high infant mortality rate. Abortion has the same effect on subsequent pregnancies, and the more abortions a woman has, the less likely she will be to carry a subsequent infant to term. In some cases, women become unable to conceive following abortion. While women can quit smoking, they cannot undo the damage to their reproductive systems caused by abortion.
That article is correct about racism being the cause of high infant mortality rates, but not in the nebulous way it blathers on about. Rather, it is a very specific mechanism: racist leftists target black women for abortion and place abortion mills disproportionately in black neighborhoods. Eugenicists have targeted the black population for over a century. And then these same leftists who want to get rid of black people use fear to get them to vote for them, ironically using the claim that Republicans are racist (in a very nebulous way, since no actual racist policy exists in the Republican platform) to secure their votes.
I would like to see abortion rates compared to infant mortality rates across all demographic groups--I think that the rates would correlate very well.
I see the problem immediately. She didn't have a job.
She was a non-com in the Imaginary Grievance Army, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Victim Industrial Complex.
Her total life is lived as a racist
She is living breathing ameritrash
With preemies, statistically, black girls are the heartiest, followed by black boys. I believe that Asian girls are next and it goes on down by sex and ethnicity until you get to wimpy white boys at the bottom.
At least, thats what I was told by a doc I knew while I was visiting my preemie son in the intensive care nursery. Premature white males struggle the most.
For a group with the heartiest babies to have a higher infant mortality rate is shocking: what is going on when they get home from the hospital?
I’d be more concerned over the Planned Parenthood targeting of black babies.
Bingo. And damage to the reproductive system from STDs may be a factor as well.
How does one enter the kick-ass community organizer career field?
