On this Tuesday, understand the effects of exposure to prolonged trauma. Self-identified African-Americans disproportionately rate higher in stress-related diseases. At this point, most intelligent folks agree the identifiable environmental varuables negatively effecting African-Americans are by institutional design. The debate is how public resources will be allocated to reverse, or as I've seen it- to appease, The Stressors. Order will be maintained. Business will be prioritized. The function of the U.S. government is determined by its' land owners and stock holders... B.u.t. I digress.

Mental Health sets the precedence for holistic well-being.
