Race and The Medical Community

#Racism in #medicine: The harsh reality of #SCDLIFE

 

From the beginning when someone was diagnosed with this illness they were never told that reality and what to do about it. We unknowingly procreated and made ill children because they knew no better. The medical community chose to diagnose but not advocate and make  patients aware. Would this have happened if patient were white? Does the medical community really believe that African-Americans can tolerate being on a higher pain scale than Caucasian American? Is this mentality the reason behind The lack of care and treatment or is it race? Wdyt? #LetsTalk
