Conversations about racism in America are so often restricted to the relationship blacks have with whites that one is almost tempted to believe that whites are somehow the African-American’s most ancient, formidable and primordially evil enemy. The reader may be surprised to know, however, that whites were not the first group to enslave blacks, and discriminate against them, purely on the basis of their race. Deplorable though the treatment of black Africans was by Europeans, the dubious distinction of originating anti-black racism is awarded to the Arab and Persian Muslims of the medieval period.

Purdue Pharma has another “killer” surprise for America — addicting 7 to 16 year olds!

butransThere is little outrage from the public in Purdue Pharma targeting children as young as 7 years old with yet another Holocaust of death in an FDA approved opioid.

(MYRTLE BEACH)  On September 14, the FDA Advisory Committee will be holding a hearing on Purdue Pharma’s new “blockbuster” opioid called Butrans.  It is targeted for severe pain in children ages 7 to 16 years old.  There is not a doubt in my mind that once the FDA approves this latest killer opioid presented by Purdue Pharma, it will be off-labeled marketed as OxyContin was for all pain levels.  This time though children are the guinea pigs and Purdue Pharma and its owners, the Sacklers will in all probability double their profits.

President Trump nominating Rep. Tom Marino, PA (again) for “drug czar” is a disservice to America!

Hopefully Mr. Trump will not allow the “alligator” with financial ties to the pharmaceutical industry to become “drug czar” while Marino thumbs his nose at the DEA and the families suffering the loss of loved ones to an out of control prescription opioid/heroin epidemic.

(MYRTLE BEACH)  President Donald Trump announced that he intends to nominate Rep. Tom Marino (R) of Pennsylvania to head the Office of National Drug Control Policy — second time for nomination.  Marino has been a longtime supporter of the president — so much so that Trump nominated Marino back in the spring for the same position — drug czar.  Marino withdrew his name in May because of “family issues.”

Dick Gregory (Oct. 12, 1932 — Aug. 19, 2017) has passed on from the American scene. A man of all seasons, as a stand-up comic he fought in the battle for civil rights, sometimes through mockery, and at other times directly as an active opponent of racial bias in politics and in ordinary life. Now his personal battle for social justice is over. His legacy is not just his victories in that battle, but also lives on in the activism of the many who have been inspired by him.

Well done, Dick Gregory!
Requiescat in pace.
