TW: rape, murder, killing.

I’ve always noticed how in cases of mass tragedy, and even smaller, less-national-covered cases, that white men have been treated differently in comparison to people of color. And since this Connecticut shooting has occurred, I’ve noticed that it all…

Study: Black Children Are Less Likely To Get Pain Medication In ERs
The Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) revealed this past weekend that black children are dramatically less likely to receive pain medication in the emergency room than white children, according to ABC News.
Black children are 39 percent less likely to receive the same medicine as white children with similar problems. Since little is known about children’s pain expression and perception, the PAS is searching for a direct reason for the findings.
The study’s lead researcher, Dr. Tiffani J. Johnson, expressed her concerns about what she discovered.

“If we don’t recognize disparities, we’re never going to be able to close the gaps,” Johnson said. 
“Now we need to look at where these differences are coming from. Are they at the patient level, the parent level or the physician level?”

The PAS also revealed that black and Hispanic children are likelier to have long ER visits than white children.
Researchers used data from the CDC’s National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, which included more than 2,000 children from 550 hospitals who visited the ER for abdominal pain between 2006 and 2009.
A 2002 Institute of Medicine study found large patterns of racial disparities in medical treatments, including that “minorities are less likely to be given appropriate cardiac medications or to undergo bypass surgery, and are less likely to receive kidney dialysis or transplants” as well as more likely to receive painful or life-altering procedures like limb amputation.

I can’t say I’m surprised by this, but it’s still fucking heartbreaking.

This is what it means when you’re not seen as human 

My fucking god. They are letting CHILDREN SUFFER?
Fuck this. Fuck this shit.

“My biggest problem is that there is simply no creativity in movies with black casts at all. White people are 12 year old wizards, teens with crushes on vampires and werewolves, fighting blue people, talking fish and toys, and yet the best we get is a movie about the genteel south? Someone please make a movie about two black folks falling in love at a rock concert or a feature film about Storm from X-Men discovering her power, or something, ANYTHING, that goes beyond Black Pain (TM) / White Saviour (TM) movies. Sheesh.”

Um… I took this picture. How do I get this off such a horrible site as poorlydressed.com? Internets, why?!!!  I need a watermark. These folks were fabulous and they look fabulous.

Hey tumblr fam. I took this picture. The poorly dressed team says that they will take it down if i can find the page its on. I can’t find it :( I posted this pic on my personal photo tumblr over a year ago and used it in a piece I wrote on the CFC. If anyone has ideas about how I can find this pic on the poorly dressed site without having to go through page after page of their fat shaming, classist, queer hating foolishness (I’ve been through 100 pages!) I would appreciate it.
