There is a cause for concern regarding expecting

mothers of African American descent. Black women are a whopping 3+ times more likely to die during pregnancy/childbirth than their white counterparts.

Blood pressure disorders (preeclampsia & eclampsia) and heart failure were one of the leading causes of maternal mortality (DEATH) for Black women. Also not too far behind was severe bleeding or blood vessel blockage as further causes of death for expectant Black mothers.

In regards to ectopic pregnancy white & hispanic women were at a much lower risk of mortality than Black women. Ectopic pregnancy was the 5th leading cause of death for Black pregnant mothers.

It is clear that the medical system needs urgent reform. It is with urgency that the issue of racial disparities within the medical system be brought to a resolve so that actual preventative measures can be set into place to help combat the alarming death toll numbers for Black women bearing children.

According to new study findings by the American Journal of Psychiatry, Black children living in poverty are at an increased risk for brain developmental issues. Trauma & stress were showed to be key symptoms.

Harvard University researchers performed MRI scans on 7,350 white and 1,786 Black children and there were still a greater number of mental health issues for Black children outweighing those of white children.

Systemic racism & financial hardships were found to be the route causes of mental illness for Black children.

A deficit of gray matter was found in their brains, those stressors were found to be the contributing factors. Prolonged exposure to adverse experiences can lead to immune and metabolic disruptions.

PTSD, depression,anxiety, and suicide attempts were common mental health issues that were found to effect the Black community far beyond those of non black backgrounds.

We must place emphasis on the need to tackle the major issue of systemic structural racism that plagued historically disadvantaged Black communities.

Black Americans are at 38% a greater risk of being exposed to polluted air in their communities according to studies done. And are more likely (by 75%) to border on plant and factory towns.

It is not far fetched to use critical thinking skills to add up the cause to why predominately Black neighborhoods are in poor conditions, when there are dangerous substances being strategically taken out of successful predominately white neighborhoods and being placed/dumped in predominately Black disadvantaged communities.

It’s also important to note that financial status is not the main contributor to environmental racism, it is in FACT RACISM that causes environmental racism. Studies have proven that even Black Americans who made more money than their white counterparts faced the impacts of environmental racism. It is clear that the issue of environmental racism is more than just a “pull yourself up by the bootstraps” type of issue.

Racism has been a long standing issue that is costing people their lives. This cause needs immediate resolutive action.
