@BBCWorld I know Steve Wolf but he is wrong. Race is NOT a social construct as #CRT claimed. Health disparities are largely genetic. No single gene for race but African Americans have different gene network for hormone D that regulates immune system. #COVIDdeaths tracked D
Access to insurance & health care are factors & exposure risk, but sets of genes differ in different races. Sanofi Dengue fever vaccine worked well in Mex, Latin American. But in SE Asia it failed. Cause found to be genetic differences. It’s nonsense to claim race isn’t genetic.
I organized a conference on gene networks& disease in 2010. The Human Genome sequenced genes. The research on gene networks has developed over the last 20+ years. The peer reviewed literature in PubMed has hundreds of research papers on the genetic factors in health disparities.
2/ The Republican Woman Governor of Alabama signed a bill about late term abortions with this important exception: "except in case of emergencies" She understands about eclampsia & that childbirth is inherently dangerous. It is only relevant for emergencies like that. #RVA
3/ I don't think any @vademocrats have effectively or precisely explained why this may rarely but sometimes be medically needed. My sister became eclamptic & convulsed in childbirth. Fortunately both she & my nephew survived. Women die this way. @KathyKLTran@TerryMcAuliffe
@camanpour Jones was wrong in her premise for #CriticalRaceTheory which is based on Marxist theory, & her own misunderstanding of genomics. #CRT is antithetical to Dr MLK's dream of NOT being judged by skin color. It asserts that "whiteness is the source of all racial injustice"
2 The police are NOT the source of the violence against black people, although the media definitely conveys that impression. #FactsMatter. Below are facts about the sources of violence against black people, from peer reviewed sources and the original databases quoted in them.
3 #FactsMatter Criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson Crime data sources from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports & CDC, found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012. THESE #BlackLivesMatter too!
#BLM originates from two Marxist leaders (see their @YouTube videos) who took its techniques directly from Marxist praxis of confrontation, disruption & destruction. Because of our concern for #BlackLivesMatter goals we don’t criticize, but embezzlement of #BLM funds hurts them.
Why don’t LGR local grass roots #BLM take control of your future? A tall young man, a protester, held his sign #BlackFuturesMatter I saw his frustration. Tall, maybe 🏀 player, then after basketball 🏀 no job. That’s on my door. Make YOUR FUTURE matter. #BlackLivesMatter
@chucktodd Ben is WRONG. You, @MSNBC need to understand exactly what #CriticalRaceTheory actually IS. It is not about denying racism exists. It is not a tactic. #CRT is based on Critical Theory, a Marxist theory that asserts: there is the Oppressor and the Oppressed. Part 1 and
Part 2 #BLM White people are The Oppressor, Black People are The Oppressed. It stresses constant action of The Oppressed confronting The Oppresser. It is Marxist indoctrination quite factually instructing children that bad white people are why good Black People have problems.
@marclamonthill@AfricanaCarr African Americans have been part of America's story from the beginning. African Americans were called servants in Va records of the early 1620s. Only 1 non Christian was recorded bound for life. Freed servants W/B were common, some owned land, had servants #RVA Free community too
Unconscionable for #rvacouncil to say "We're doing things the #RVA way - obviously the wrong way -high crime, defund @RichmondPolice The people are dying. Not from the police but #Crime is skyrocketing, gun violence unprecedented, topping the bad old days of 80s. Shameful.
@RPS_Schools are worst in the state. Gun violence highest. And #rvacouncil says "We do things the Richmond way." So what if we pay @RichmondPolice less than anywhere else in Central Va. So what if schools are dead last. So what if babies are shot in Mom's arms killing both. #RVA
@rontkim I presume you mean well, but have zero experience actually managing anything in the real world. In a pandemic like this some liability shield is reasonable providing they follow @CDCgov guidance. @nytimes Lack of PPE was a national crisis NOT caused by @NYGovCuomo
Have you forgotten this? That's how dire the situation was. Staff would have taken care of details of transfers. Nursing homes in #RVA & everywhere were worse. Those with lower D levels stricken worse. AfrAm, Hispanic, Asian have dif gene networks 4 D
To count anything you would list deaths where they occurred, such as hospitals, not look up patients' primary residence. They don't report by residence but where death occurred Your "follow the money" argument fails, since it was worse for nursing homes to take them. @newsweek
@SpeakerPelosi the film of the Oakland attacks were NOT white supremacists. They’re crimes by black criminals attacking AsianAm store owners. ProudBoys leader isHispanic. Neo-nazi broadcasting fr Russia name Nazzaro - #ActiveMeasures Stop paintings every action as hate @MSNBC
You must name a demon to cast it out (Biblical) In science, you must precisely identify problem to solve it. @TheDemocrats refusal to enforce the law in 2020 riots is a big factor that inflamed people, who then listened to Trump lies. If Dems take over, it will happen everywhere.
That’s what most Trump supporters (not those attacking Capitol) but ordinary well groomed middle aged women fear, with cause.Also most rally goers were not white supremacists, or PB.They’re CEOs, business owners, people concerned about crime, lawlessness, safe neighborhoods. #RVA
I AM going to write the history of #RVA the past 50 years -as witness/participant. I AM tired of all the #LIES#TrumpLiedStoneyLied McAuliffe destroyed inner city #RVA & now is trying to create a different narrative since he needs to steal more from Virginia as Gov @RTDOpinions
This is an example of starting a fire so people are so distracted by the blaze & excitement they don't realize how much money you stole while you were robbing them. #RVA@RTDNEWS This story is untrue about #RVA the past 40+ years. @RTDOpinions@NBC12 Black neighbors come/go.
Also clean up the filth & vermin at "Lord of the Flies" Circle, don't just wall it off @GovernorVA. That area is a filthy, unsanitary, unsightly eyesore, that contributed greatly to the pandemic. @RTDNEWS#RVA your legacy is 100 days of filth, fires, failures & chaos.
1)I imagine Palm Sundays after church, Congregations walk around Lee Circle with palm fronds and back to Sunday services 2) imagine Easter Parade for all races along Monumnet Avenue, Easter bonnet contest (adults, children & dogs) on base of Lee Monument 3) Monument Ave 10K #RVA
4) imagine children drawing chalk hop-scotch patterns on Monument Ave on Easter Sunday #RVA 5) imagine Richmond marathon along Monument Ave 6) imagine international bike races thru #rva along Monument Ave 7)imagine runners & walkers safely walking on Virginia's most beautiful ave
A lot of white guys legally protesting in support of 2A rights are NOT to be lumped together/confused with the #TrumpInsurrection overthrow the government groups. They are not all the same. Many are more #Libertarian with no attempted coup in mind. Judge them by their deeds.
@VaHouseDems@VaSenateDems major cause of health disparities for African Americans is NOT racism. #FactsMatter Vitamin D deficiency (genetic) is most frequently cited factor in scientific literature. @NIH program All of Us is a major research effort to address this. #science
Dr.FrancisCollins, who led #HumanGenome project is PgmDirector It will discern genetic, environment, life style factors for 1 million Americans, all races, ample # AfrAm in study. Let #Science determine the answer on this. I am on the mailing list & will report findings.
Vitamin D is the big factor. AfrAms have different gene networks for D, not a vitamin, but a hormone that regulates immune response. Those catching #COVID19 also had low D levels as well. I have told many friends & #RVA about D, so have your friends& family all take D #Science
Decriminalization YES. which @VaHouse@VASenate already did. @RalphNortham KNOWS this is harmful and is a poison for children. Commercialization NO. Decriminalization WE ALREADY DID. Last spring. Marijuana is NOT a harmless drug. It does NOT bring revenue.
Quit pushing false narratives @CNNPolitics Health disparities r largely genetic. Studies to include all races & separate environment from genetic. Pain medications is not a disparity. @CNN is the worst promoting racial divisions. FredW had Dr Davis on.
You also keep pushing narrative that black & brown don't trust medical care. NOT when they have BOTH health insurance AND access to care. It's largely genetic & environmental other than ins & access. I have watched AfrAms flock to health centers for care when available. No fear.
I've worked in/around health care systems most of my life, professionally 30 years. No fear in African Americans IF they have insurance & access to health care. They go to get it! That is an old canard passed around in the press echo chambers which is no longer true. @CNNPolitics
I know federal funding guidelines well. My read on @MickMulvaney act, an excellent streamlining of fed funding regs, is that they apply to all federal funding to states, localities, for/non profits. Specific FARS DFARS required in contracts. Get lawyers to check @larry_kudlow
These regs were contained in three separate funding documents at OMB. Mick put them into the CFR while streamlining regs @realDonaldTrump@larry_kudlow@MickMulvaney@senatemajldr I think that covers ANY non related/secondary expenditures of fed funds by state/local recipients.
@RTDMPW Your assertions about what Virginians taught, believed rely on inaccurate reports like the one on Virginia textbooks based on a magazine article written by nonVirginians about what they WANT to infer about this Commonwealth to gain some sense of power by disparaging VA
2 You viciously assert that Richmond & Virginians deny slavery, hide it. I am a witness to the history about which you & Wilson claim to know, have been in #RVA 5 decades. I need to describe an eye witness account of RVA history. Hatred is not just the purview of Trump MAGAhats
3. I had the 4th grade text, which showed 1619 events, including first Africans in VA shown bound together as they disembarked the ship atJamestown. No one glossed over the fact they were bound. Other assertions in that article are incorrect. People were called servants or family
Read these reports and view videos from those with the experience of legalization -In poor neighborhoods of Denver, there are pot shops for every 47 residents. #SocialJustice is NOT legalizing pot but decriminalize, as GA did last spring. @DonScott757
Just to decode Thune’s remarks for you: “Spending” means cutting spending, “entitlement reform” means cuts to programs such as food stamps & Medicaid, and “growth & the economy” means hampering growth and sabotaging the economy. @SenateDems@johnthune@JoeBiden@WSJ@Forbes
By attacking America's economy, they take food off families’ tables, force cutbacks in state & local services, punish small businesses & create a vicious cycle of austerity & anemic recovery in the rest of the country, hoping Americans blame Biden for all of it. @SpeakerPelosi
