OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus's curator insight, May 28, 2014 8:29 PM

>>>3. Black folks have to drop the attitude and stigma behind mental health care. I found that a number of the nurses on the psych floor who were black acted as though the white girls in my ward were actually sick, but gave me a totally different set of treatment. I guess their attitude is that, white women are supposed to be weak, but we are supposed to be stronger than this. The fact is that we suffer from mental illness in our community in large numbers and we tend to go untreated because we dismiss things as being crazy. That word is dismissive and a great way to not have to deal with someone or their issues. <<<<<

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus's curator insight, May 29, 2014 6:57 PM

"The skewed sex ratio “puts black women in an awful spot,” says Audrey Chapman, a relationship counsellor and the author of several books with titles such as “Getting Good Loving”. Her advice to single black women is pragmatic: love yourself, communicate better and so on. She says that many black men and women, having been brought up by single mothers, are unsure what role a man should play in the home. "


Dr. Nathan Hare Nathan Hare , the esteemed professor of sociology, culture and the body politic commented about this article on his facebook page:

" I used to make this point in my sociology classes at Howard in the mid 1960s. Monogamy assumes that a one to one sex ratio will exist (courtesy of Thembisa Mshaka). The post brilliantly brings to mind that even when there is, one person may be wanted by more than one, another by none."

In 1910, less than 50 years after Abraham Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, African Americans owned over 15 million acres in the former slave-holding states. Much of that black-owned property was on the coasts, the geographic margins of the nation, which at the time were some of the most undesirable areas for living or leisure.

"The schools had been founded in the mid-1960s in response to the desegregation of public schools set in motion by the Brown v. Board of Education decision of 1954. In 1969, the first year of desegregation, the number of white students enrolled in public schools in Holmes County dropped from 771 to 28; the following year, that number fell to zero."
