From the New York Times opinion page:

As a Black Man in America, I Feel Death Looming Every Day
Dec. 5, 2021

By Joél Leon Daniels

Mr. Daniels is a writer and a creative director at T Brand Studios.

When Virgil Abloh died last week at the age of 41, I thought of my father. Many in the Black community did. We thought of all the other Black men we’ve loved and lost too early: our friends, our fathers, our brothers. And we thought about ourselves.

To know Blackness is to know death, as close to us as breath is to being. For two years, Mr. Abloh, a fashion designer and icon, hid his diagnosis of cardiac angiosarcoma, a rare type of cancer, from the public. It’s a story reminiscent of Chadwick Boseman’s, who died from colon cancer in 2020 following his diagnosis in 2016. Their privacy about their struggles is a shattering kind of silence.

What was it like to be Mr. Abloh in those two years that he knew he was ill? Was he watching the clock, the minute hands meeting glorious, terrifying hours, like my father did, like I do?

It is a silence familiar to those who share air, space and lifetimes with Black men who have gone too soon — the actor Michael K. Williams, the rappers Nipsey Hussle and Young Dolph, and George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery and Eric Garner among them. It is a silence most familiar if you are born a Black man in America.

No one knows when they are going to die. There is no crystal ball, no psychic hotline, no palm reading that can predict the moment of our death, nor tell us what awaits on the other side. But as Black men in the United States, we do know we are likely to die sooner than most.

I look forward to the upcoming NYT op-ed:

As an Asian Woman in America, I Feel Death Not Looming Until Way Off in My Nineties, Maybe Even My Hundreds

Back to Mr. Daniels’ laments:

And when we are confronted with constant peril and trauma, in every hospital visit, every encounter with law enforcement, every too-long stare, every grainy bystander video capturing our last breaths, we are not only prone to be scared of death, but are prone to be scared to death. …

Later, my father suffered from dementia, bipolar disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder. These were consequences not only of Vietnam, but of Pensacola, Fla., still segregated when my father grew up there in the 1950s and ’60s. At the age of 72, my father died of natural causes. But I think my father died because he was tired of living. Because he was tired of a country that neglected him from the moment he was born. Charles Lorenzo Daniels Jr. died because as a Black man in America, he was taught to prepare for his death long before it happened.

In the wake of my father’s and Mr. Boseman’s deaths, I thought about my own. So this past summer, at the age of 38, I finally went to see a doctor. It was the first time I’d been to see a primary care physician in over two decades. Cancer and heart disease are among the leading causes of death for Black men, and African Americans are more likely to get, and more likely than other groups to die from, colorectal cancer, which killed Mr. Boseman. Preventive care is the best defense from this and many other illnesses and ailments. My visit to the doctor was a belated but necessary act of self-preservation.

Like too many Black men, I’ve struggled with suicidal ideations,

Relatively speaking, a bigger problem for black men are homicidal ideations.

with an undying fear of not being enough or being too much, and with the gap between Black life and the death I feel constantly looming. This is all a heavy burden to carry, and racism and internalized masculinity norms can reduce Black men’s willingness to seek help. Depressed African American men are less likely to seek mental health treatment, compared with depressed white men.

Lots more white men are depressed than black men, who tend to be rather cheerful on average, as Darwin noted in the 1830s. So it’s not surprising that among black men who are depressed enough to qualify as depressed, fewer would be so depressed they seek treatment.

Meanwhile, from Inquire:

What Explains Why White People Have Worse Mental Health?

Novel research offers some insight into an old paradox.

Zaid Jilani
Nov 24

… While whites generally face fewer risks to their physical health and occupy a better socioeconomic status — they often have higher income than non-whites and have much less exposure to things like homicide — their mental health tends to be significantly worse when you compare like to like (that is, people in similar social circumstances even if their skin color is different).

The white suicide rate is several times higher than the Asian, black, or Latino suicide rate (if you adjust for age, the Native American suicide rate usually exceeds the white one by a bit). An interesting Brookings Institute study from a few years ago found that poor African Americans tend to be much more optimistic than poor whites are.

People who study these topics have deemed this gap the “black-white mental health paradox.” As one paper put it, “despite higher stress exposure, greater material hardship, and worse physical health, black Americans tend to experience similar or relatively lower rates of psychiatric disorders than whites.”

A recent study published in the Journal of Health and Social Research offers us some new explanations for why so many white people are at a disadvantage when it comes to mental health. The researchers looked at a large sample of African American and white Americans between the ages of 22 and 69 from Nashville, Tennessee and the surrounding area.

They looked at the mental health of these individuals along two different measures: Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-IV (DSM-IV) mental disorders and depressive symptoms. These are common measurements of mental health in the field.

They then sought to see if different coping mechanisms were associated with better mental health outcomes.

What they found is that black Americans reported higher levels of self-esteem, higher levels of religious attendance, family social support, and higher “sense of divine control” — for which they borrow the following definition from fellow researchers: the “individual perception that ‘God controls the good and bad outcomes in their lives…and that their fate evolves according to God’s will or plan for them.’”

Using causal mediation techniques, they find that self-esteem has “the largest effect in explaining black-white differences in depressive symptoms, whereas divine control has the largest effect in explaining differences in disorder.”

This study offers some insight into the question of why the group we’re often told is the most privileged in society suffers from some of the worst mental health outcomes.

It appears that some minority cultures have benefited from retaining a relatively high degree of religiosity while also inculcating self-esteem.

I would distinguish between general types of mental health problems:

Problems that tend to be internalized: For example, a lack of self-esteem can lead, in the extreme, to depression and even suicide

Problems that tend to be externalized: For example, too much self-esteem can lead, in the extreme, to aggression and even shooting up the block party because somebody dissed you and plugging a few innocent by-standers eating ribs.

    Yes, black men as a group are "likely to die sooner than most" -primarily because they are shot and killed by other black men, usually in their 20's and teens in gang warfare.

    Envision and think of what the history of Ameria would have been like and what the US would be like today if not for slavery and the current presence of over 40-millon blacks and millions or even tens of millions more in the near and distant future.

    The "legacy of slavery" in indeed a curse and tragedy -for whites and what's left of white America- exacerbated by an invasion of tens or millions of Mestizos and pure Amerindians and millions of Muslims and sundry "Asians" and their offspring that will soon transform the US into a nonwhite-majority country in which European-Americans as a group in most states and in hundreds of cities will be an increasingly dispossessed and persecuted minority

  2. Oh, Joél, as opposed to Joel, I see.

  3. A common misunderstanding of self-esteem.

    For example, too much self-esteem can lead, in the extreme, to aggression and even shooting up the block party because somebody dissed you and plugging a few innocent by-standers eating ribs.

    Someone who feels genuinely secure is amused by insults. “You thought that would work? lol, cute.”

    Someone who needs to risk jail or violent retribution to defend themselves against insults is showing low self-respect, not high self-respect.

    “Oh you’re just a danger-hair.”
    *glances up at regular, boring black hair*
    “No?” Thinking: ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ what’s this guy on?

    Mortals react to insults that hit nerves, not insults that miss the mark.
    What’s it feel like to be so weak mere words can hurt you?

    [MORE]

    It’s true there’s a j-shaped results curve. If your “self-esteem” is so low that you think it’s hopeless, you don’t react. “Everyone already thinks that about me. It’s pointless. All pointless!”

    Blacks have relatively (but not critically) low “self-esteem” and constantly feel threatened by cops and doctors and “white supremacy” because the press constantly insults and berates them. “You’re weak and there’s no way you can defend yourself. Without our generous help, of course.” Gee, thanks NYT. So nice, so empathetic!
    They’re just doing what they’re told. Bantu are particularly obedient. They may seem impulsive but the impulses always seem to have the thrust they’re supposed to have…

    But as Black men in the United States, we do know we are likely to die sooner than most.

    Fast life strategy, adapted to an easy ecology with high random death from disease, parasites, and other predators.

    Evolution has channelled mortal psychology into two archetypes. The K-strategy and the r-strategy. (Mnemonic: the Kwality strategy vs. the ratio-advantage strategy.) Modern society fits neither well, which results in psychological mismatches. Easy ecology, low death? Does not compute.

    The natural fast-liver hallucinates death and pain around every corner to rationalize their feeling of urgency. The NYT merely channels this toward their political enemies.
    The natural slow-liver hallucinates famines &c instead to rationalize their urge to heavily prepare for a difficult environment. Preppers and the like. “You’ll never make it in the real world!”

    Regardless, do you need accurate beliefs in a low-death easy ecology? The species is definitely going to survive that one…

  4. anonymous[139] • Disclaimer says:

    Sounds like a real Hamlet style soliloquy: ‘Oh, to be black and so talented yet to labor under the shadow of death’. The drama! Are there any blacks capable of writing about anything other than themselves? Lot of self-absorption going on here. One could get a distorted view of blacks through the medium of media which features athletes and other slim types. Very many blacks are quite obese with some being downright gargantuan needing walkers or motorized chairs. Throw in smoking, drink and drugs and one has a nice formula for an early expiration date. Then of course there’s that troublesome homicide rate that just won’t go down. The white depression rate is higher because they’re the ones who have to work to pay for all this. We pay while they play. Then having to listen to all their whiny manure, it’s just too much.

    “We pay while they play” is actually moronic. This entire response is clearly an idiots spiraling thoughts.

    "It was the first time I’d been to see a primary care physician in over two decades."

    This may also have something to do with lifespan. Doctors can be difficult and harmful, but they sometimes discover and treat the chronic illnesses which are a much more common, if less dramatic, cause of death.

  6. I would say that the main reason why a high proportion of white Americans have mental health problems is that so many of them are crazy.

    But not so sure about the religious thing, because Americans have an amazingly high rate of belief in God relative to Europeans, without having a corresponding reduction in mental illness. There has to be something about the quality of daily life in the US that tends to make people believe in God, but I don’t know what it is. I guess they feel that they are powerless.

  7. As one paper put it, “despite higher stress exposure, greater material hardship, and worse physical health, black Americans tend to experience similar or relatively lower rates of psychiatric disorders than whites.”

    Blacks have a higher rate of schizophrenia by 2, maybe 3 fold. Not sure about schizoaffective, but as mania seems pretty common in blacks, it would surprise me if they did.

    The serious mental disorders are swamped by the mild ones in numbers. Around 1% of whites develop schizophrenia. Something like 30% of white women are depressed. Not sure about anxiety, but there are a ton of Xanax scripts written every month.

    Modern depression is different from classical depression. Classical depression is (was?) called “typical depression,” and the symptoms are things like not sleeping, not eating much... Most people with depression today have “atypical depression.” That has symptoms like sleeping more and eating more. I wanna say with typical depression flat affect is very common. But depressed women today will make it very clear that they are not happy.

    I guess that the current depression epidemic is caused by things like smaller or non-existent support networks, fewer family members, less exercise, and poor diet. Combine that with worse working conditions for the vast majority of people compared to say, 1970. Companies have found that the health plan covering anti-depressants is cheaper than raising wages or improving working conditions.

    Some things that are really common today were disorders twenty years ago. Remember when spending more than four (?) hours a week online was a disorder? I am sure most teenage boys spend enough time playing video games that it would have been a crisis at the turn of the Millenium. In real terms, people are poorer today than they were a couple of decades ago. The tv screens were smaller, sure. But housing, healthcare, and education, to name three, were a lot cheaper. Twenty years ago, more people knew their neighbors. Is your brother giving you the cold shoulder? That’s easier to cope with when you have two other siblings. Or aunts and uncles. Or cousins.

    The immiseration of the working class has pushed a lot of people into white-collar jobs when they would have been happier doing something more physical without tens of thousands of dollars in student loans over their heads. Fewer people can afford hobbies these days. Having some non-work friends took some of the stings out of work not going so well.

    Obesity is a big deal these days. Lots of people are too fat to exercise without serious risk joints. It should be harder on black women than white ones. But if you see an overweight actress, talking head, or “expert” on tv, there’s about a 90% chance that she’s black.

    I think blacks have a higher hedonic setpoint, to expand the “setpoint” term from obesity studies. They have a culture built up over generations to deal with being excluded from white society. Not to mention to cope with being poorer. Black people on the high end have better nominal standards of living, but it sure has not trickled down. Blacks likely benefit from a “hormetic” effect of stress. Stressors become easier to deal with when you have some all the time. Like, I am sure more people today have social phobia today than had it before covid, but more than a year of social isolation will have done a number on a lot of people. The everyday stresses of social interaction thickened peoples’ skins.

    Perhaps not living up to society’s expectations is easier on black people? They’ve been leery of white people for a while now. The immiseration is harder on white people. Many of whom prided themselves on being responsible with money, but after 2000 or so, especially 2008, found keeping up with necessary expenses to be much more difficult.

    Tl;dr Serious mental schizophreniform disorders are more common in blacks. By the numbers, they are swamped by mild mental illnesses in whites. Illnesses likely caused by modern life being crappy.

  8. Actually, Black individuals have higher rates of schizophrenia and Bipolar disorder than White people do, and the focus of the bipolar is on the mania component much more strongly. It is very true that Black people have extremely high self esteem, and are likely to respond affirmatively to questions such as “I’ve noticed that I’m more intelligent than most people give me credit for,” and “Most of the time, I’m better than other people at most things I try to do.” “People who respond negatively to my comments are usually just jealous of my abilities.” These responses are to questions on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory. The MMPI provides broad information about aspects of personality and the existence of components of psychopathology. It’s used in criminology as well, and many people who respond with extremely expansive, complimentary self-evaluations often exist in a delusional world that is very far from reality. I was surprised to read this because it is not exactly truthful, except for the part that Black men and women have low suicide rates and high self-esteem, the opposite of White menand women who have (White men) high suicide rates and lower, more realistic self-esteem.
    The gradual increase to now continuous focus on race by the media has done a terrible thing to the Black American mind – a crime, really, by constantly propagandizing race until Black people think of little or nothing else. I’m not speaking about Black professionals who have obviously learned to focus on other things, but of people who get up every morning and the first thought that pops into their head is their skin color, that they are different, and the falsehood that they will be forcibly stopped from achieving their dream if they have one. All that stands in stark contrast with what is really going on. It is a very sick component of our society that claims to be “hunted in the streets” while they are actually, actively hunting others in the streets.

    Also the TV has Blacks remarkably overrepresented by a factor of 2x to their 15% of the US Population, and never portrayed in a negative light. It creates a positive feedback loop for their own self-esteem and ego, which isn’t necessarily a postive thing for the rest of us moored to reality. As Steve sums it all up in perhaps his best line ever: they are beneath responsibility and beyond criticism. It’s a terrible bind our nation’s leader have put us in with this scenario.

  11. Maybe whites have worse depression outcomes because they have better access to professional mental-health treatment. This affords whites talk therapy that has a paradoxical effect, and, anti-depression medications, which, after all, are just active placebos. Blacks, meanwhile, experience a “spontaneous remission,” as “the depression lifts” within a short time, weeks or even a few days.

    No. Talk therapy for depression is practically obsolete because it is not cost-effective.

    Antidepressants like Prozac do work. They are not just placebos.

    A reason why whites have a high rate of depression, is that white women love to be taking pills, and the doctor can't prescribe the pills without assigning a diagnosis.

    The main cause of depression in white women is that they are obese or overweight and nobody wants to f*** them any more, least of all their husbands.

    Yes it is notable that relatively few African Americans emigrate from the US, and yet there are many Afro--Caribbean countries and islands where a greater proportion of the population live overseas than at home, for example Guyana.

    The racist situation may be worse forthem overseas.

    There are two African American men in prison in Cuenca Ecuador. They immigrated to Ecuador and bought a farm, but local indigenous people buried bodies in their backyard, and then called the police and had them arrested for murder.

    Within an hour or two of their arrest, the indigenous people had taken over their land and destroyed their buildings and home.

    They are still in prison in Cuenca with little prospect of ever getting out.

    At least that is their story, and there is a long video interview with them done on a cell phone on a US blog.

  15. So cancer and heart disease are racist as well. Dang, it must be tough to be a negro in the modern world – literally everything is out to get you.

    “Over” and “under” seem to be implying misdiagnosis. How do they know that, and what are the “correct, accurate” levels of mental illness among blacks? The parsimonious interpretation is that the diagnosis levels are correct, and until strong evidence is found, blacks are actually more — or less — subject to certain mental illnesses. Disproportionate representation is not in itself evidence for inaccuracy.

    Having lived in a couple of Caribbean islands and worked in their health services, I would hazard a guess that suicide numbers are under reported by coroners, because of the social stigma.

    However there does seem to be a relatively low incidence of suicide in the Caribbean, and the most frequent method of suicide is by hanging from a tree.

    In the Caribbean islands most people are well known in their own communities, and many people live their whole lives within a mile or two of where they were born, and everyday see the people they went to school with and grew up with and many of their relatives.

    I suspect that this closeness of the community has more to do with low suicidality than does latitude.

    I would expect that to be a higher rate of suicide in Caribbean people who are living overseas in North America or Europe.

    Suicide and schizoaffective disorders have no relationship. Depression and suicide do. Depressed people can be quite rational. In fact, sometimes I think that suicide comes when you're at a vulnerable moment and you see the world as it really is.

  18. Women are twice as likely as men to take antidepressant medication. Why are one in four women is on psych meds? Can so many US women really be mentally ill ?

    Are women crazy? The world’s “great thinkers” have tended to say so, characterising women as the weaker sex both physically and psychologically. In Plato’s “Timaeus”, female moodiness and misbehavior are explained with the wandering uterus theory. a Greek surgeon by the name of Galen would expand upon the Athenian’s explanation. For him, ladies’ mental ills stem from their sex drive: women become “hysterical” when they don’t get properly laid. until the mid 19th century, there were several “prescriptions” available for nasty cases of hysteria: Married women needed to have more sex with their husbands, and single females were told to seek “pelvic massages” from qualified technicians, to produce “hysterical paroxysm” (what’s now known as an “orgasm”). The latter practice would eventually get recommended to women regardless of marital status, achieving its peak around the late 19th century. Vibrator treatments, somewhat unsurprisingly, would become one of the most popular outpatient procedures of that era.

    Women today are not getting laid enough, resulting in increased mental illness and depression among females. The proportion of women who had sex at least once a week fell from 66% to 50% over the last twenty years. Millennials report having fewer sexual encounters on average than the three generations before them. Women had much more sex in the 1950s, when the average woman was married by the age of 21 and their husbands had much more testosterone than the soy boys we have today. Without a strong man to have sex with females will go crazy. No Wonder so many college girls now identify as non-binary. They are not getting laid enough. This is the same reason 25% of women are on some type of psych drug. Testosterone levels have fallen significantly since 1960 and the consequence is more crazy women getting hysterical from not getting steady sex. Twenty-something women today are having much less sex than their great-grandmothers got back in the 1940s.

    Another impotent women hating MAN OF UNZ who's never got laid in his life clipping and pasting some nonsense he found on the internet. Yes, pelvic massage was a real thing by pervert Drs and unlicensed practitioners. So was tying boys hands to the bedposts to prevent masturbation.

    Judging by the obsession with everything from menstruation to birth control by the MEN OF UNZ most of you need to find a regular partner and get laid regularly or get castrated and forget about sex completely.

    When women talk about men they talk about what men do. When the MEN OF UNZ write about women it’s either advocating sex with 12 year olds or focused on reproduction.

    If women aren’t getting laid enough then men aren’t either. Especially the MEN OF UNZ.

    Good observation. Women are having less sex today than at any point in History. This is due to higher rates of Obesity combined with the lower testosterone of men and the widespread availability of porn.

    Back in 1980 just 6% of Americans under the age of 30 were obese. Today 33% of young Americans are obese. This makes it harder for females to find a boyfriend resulting in increased anxiety, depression and moodiness. Men can deal with being single far easier than females and males find it easier to enjoy one-night stands or banging prostitutes or using porn to satisfy their sexual needs. Females have an easier time getting laid, but typically do not want one-night stands and are often very resentful of guys who bang them and don’t call them back. Multiple sex partners does not improve the mental health of females, and actually harms their mental state. The high rate of females on psychotropic drugs is the result of less pair bonding , lower marriage rates and less sex.

    Women would probably get laid more if the attractive ones didn't suffer from "golden vagina syndrome," and if the rest weren't obese, tatted, blue / pink haired, man hating, batshit crazy cat ladies.
    As usual women are responsible for their own misey, but are incapable of any self reflection, or introspection... I.E. "Big is beautiful."

    Ghislaine Maxwell was a guest at “secret” book retreats hosted by Jeff Bezos. These retreats were attended by elite writers and Hollywood celebs. So Bezos (as well as many of the elites of the entertainment industry) likely were banging underaged hookers from the Epstein-Maxwell prostitution ring. See below.

    https://www.vice.com/en/article/a35895/ghislaine-maxwell-was-a-guest-at-jeff-bezoss-secret-book-retreat

    -Aristocrat& Chief Executive of Chase Manhattan David Rockefeller
    -Film director Woody Allen
    -“First Daughter” Chelsea Clinton
    -Actor Bill Cosby
    -British Prime Minister Tony Blair
    -Secretary of State Henry Kissinger
    -Billionaire Ron Burkle
    -Senator John Kerry
    -Saudi businessman Adnan Khashoggi
    -Rothschild family
    -Billionaire Leon Black

    According to Epstein victim Maria Farmer, the Rothschild family are running massive-sized prostitution rings to blackmail global elites, on behalf of the Israeli govt. In America, the Rothschild rings tasked Jewish-American business magnate Leslie Wexner with running the blackmail operation here. Then Wexner hired Epstein and Maxwell to handle day-to-day operations.

    The above operation was facilitated by a large number of powerful Jewish-Americans.

    Blacks have lower psych disorders than whites? I thought they scored way higher on the schizoaffective syndrome disorders.

    Replies: @Reg Cæsar, @Rob

    Blacks have a higher rate of schizophrenia by 2, maybe 3 fold. Not sure about schizoaffective, but as mania seems pretty common in blacks, it would surprise me if they did.

    The serious mental disorders are swamped by the mild ones in numbers. Around 1% of whites develop schizophrenia. Something like 30% of white women are depressed. Not sure about anxiety, but there are a ton of Xanax scripts written every month.

    [MORE]

    Modern depression is different from classical depression. Classical depression is (was?) called “typical depression,” and the symptoms are things like not sleeping, not eating much… Most people with depression today have “atypical depression.” That has symptoms like sleeping more and eating more. I wanna say with typical depression flat affect is very common. But depressed women today will make it very clear that they are not happy.

    I guess that the current depression epidemic is caused by things like smaller or non-existent support networks, fewer family members, less exercise, and poor diet. Combine that with worse working conditions for the vast majority of people compared to say, 1970. Companies have found that the health plan covering anti-depressants is cheaper than raising wages or improving working conditions.

    Some things that are really common today were disorders twenty years ago. Remember when spending more than four (?) hours a week online was a disorder? I am sure most teenage boys spend enough time playing video games that it would have been a crisis at the turn of the Millenium. In real terms, people are poorer today than they were a couple of decades ago. The tv screens were smaller, sure. But housing, healthcare, and education, to name three, were a lot cheaper. Twenty years ago, more people knew their neighbors. Is your brother giving you the cold shoulder? That’s easier to cope with when you have two other siblings. Or aunts and uncles. Or cousins.

    The immiseration of the working class has pushed a lot of people into white-collar jobs when they would have been happier doing something more physical without tens of thousands of dollars in student loans over their heads. Fewer people can afford hobbies these days. Having some non-work friends took some of the stings out of work not going so well.

    Obesity is a big deal these days. Lots of people are too fat to exercise without serious risk joints. It should be harder on black women than white ones. But if you see an overweight actress, talking head, or “expert” on tv, there’s about a 90% chance that she’s black.

    I think blacks have a higher hedonic setpoint, to expand the “setpoint” term from obesity studies. They have a culture built up over generations to deal with being excluded from white society. Not to mention to cope with being poorer. Black people on the high end have better nominal standards of living, but it sure has not trickled down. Blacks likely benefit from a “hormetic” effect of stress. Stressors become easier to deal with when you have some all the time. Like, I am sure more people today have social phobia today than had it before covid, but more than a year of social isolation will have done a number on a lot of people. The everyday stresses of social interaction thickened peoples’ skins.

    Perhaps not living up to society’s expectations is easier on black people? They’ve been leery of white people for a while now. The immiseration is harder on white people. Many of whom prided themselves on being responsible with money, but after 2000 or so, especially 2008, found keeping up with necessary expenses to be much more difficult.

    Tl;dr Serious mental schizophreniform disorders are more common in blacks. By the numbers, they are swamped by mild mental illnesses in whites. Illnesses likely caused by modern life being crappy.

    I used the word "schizoaffective" to take in the entire syndrome of disorders, not simply classic schizophrenia or mania.

    "Modern depression is different from classical depression.

     

    Have you read the book Crazy Like Us, by Ethan Walters? I may have learned of it here. It's thought-provoking. Walters describes depression in Japan - at least classical depression as you call it - not as shameful or crippling but as ennobling. Perhaps he got it wrong, not being Japanese, but I found that an interesting take on depression. It sounds a lot like the classic German conception. Of course, in both countries, classical depression ends with the noble sufferer killing himself, so that's pretty crippling. But if you don't take it to that extreme end, you can get something out of your depression, unlike modern America, where you're just miserable.

    The immiseration is harder on white people.

     

    Yes, losing status is better than never having had it. When Empires break up, suicide rates go up. Don't ask me for a URL. It's something I read somewhere. The older you get, the more that happens.

    Actually, Black individuals have higher rates of schizophrenia and Bipolar disorder than White people do, and the focus of the bipolar is on the mania component much more strongly. It is very true that Black people have extremely high self esteem, and are likely to respond affirmatively to questions such as "I've noticed that I'm more intelligent than most people give me credit for," and "Most of the time, I'm better than other people at most things I try to do." "People who respond negatively to my comments are usually just jealous of my abilities." These responses are to questions on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory. The MMPI provides broad information about aspects of personality and the existence of components of psychopathology. It's used in criminology as well, and many people who respond with extremely expansive, complimentary self-evaluations often exist in a delusional world that is very far from reality. I was surprised to read this because it is not exactly truthful, except for the part that Black men and women have low suicide rates and high self-esteem, the opposite of White menand women who have (White men) high suicide rates and lower, more realistic self-esteem.
    The gradual increase to now continuous focus on race by the media has done a terrible thing to the Black American mind - a crime, really, by constantly propagandizing race until Black people think of little or nothing else. I'm not speaking about Black professionals who have obviously learned to focus on other things, but of people who get up every morning and the first thought that pops into their head is their skin color, that they are different, and the falsehood that they will be forcibly stopped from achieving their dream if they have one. All that stands in stark contrast with what is really going on. It is a very sick component of our society that claims to be "hunted in the streets" while they are actually, actively hunting others in the streets.

    If by "tougher" you mean physically more able and more likely to be aggressive, then yes, they are tougher. There's plenty of both statistical data and anecdotal experience that attest to it.

    Blacks, of the West African variety mostly, have been vastly overrepresented in all combat sports (save, perhaps, for Olympic wrestling, where longer limbs tend to be a disadvantage). All else equal, blacks are on average faster, stronger, more agile and can take a punch better than men of any other race. It took White America 7 years and 27 rounds to take the heavyweight title from Jack Johnson; what does that tell you about black men's athletic ability?

    Aggression is a double edged sword of course, so black men, way more often than nonblack men, don't hold back even when a gun is pointed at them.

    Conversely, black men believe that them being tougher makes somehow them invincible, so they increasingly look down on nonblack men, sometimes with deadly results. There's one notable incident a few years ago, where Bakari Henderson, a black American tourist, was beaten to death in Greece by a bunch of Serb tourists at a club. Turns out he hit on a Serb girl, which caused the ire of the group's men, and a Serb goes ahead and slaps Henderson. Now, instead of reading the room, which had become hostile to him, and screwing off, he decides to throw a haymaker at the Serb. The rest of the Serbs went after him immediately and literally beat him to death outside the club. A few of them got 5-15 years in prison.
    What's interesting about this is that the story didn't gain much traction and his name isn't heard along with other black men who died violently by whites.

    According to Epstein victim Maria Farmer, the Rothschild family are running massive-sized prostitution rings to blackmail global elites, on behalf of the Israeli govt. In America, the Rothschild rings tasked Jewish-American business magnate Leslie Wexner with running the blackmail operation here. Then Wexner hired Epstein and Maxwell to handle day-to-day operations.

    The above operation was facilitated by a large number of powerful Jewish-Americans.

    Maybe whites have worse depression outcomes because they have better access to professional mental-health treatment. This affords whites talk therapy that has a paradoxical effect, and, anti-depression medications, which, after all, are just active placebos. Blacks, meanwhile, experience a “spontaneous remission,” as “the depression lifts” within a short time, weeks or even a few days.

    Replies: @Jonathan Mason

    No. Talk therapy for depression is practically obsolete because it is not cost-effective.

    Antidepressants like Prozac do work. They are not just placebos.

    A reason why whites have a high rate of depression, is that white women love to be taking pills, and the doctor can’t prescribe the pills without assigning a diagnosis.

    The main cause of depression in white women is that they are obese or overweight and nobody wants to f*** them any more, least of all their husbands.

    Having lived in a couple of Caribbean islands and worked in their health services, I would hazard a guess that suicide numbers are under reported by coroners, because of the social stigma.

    However there does seem to be a relatively low incidence of suicide in the Caribbean, and the most frequent method of suicide is by hanging from a tree.

    In the Caribbean islands most people are well known in their own communities, and many people live their whole lives within a mile or two of where they were born, and everyday see the people they went to school with and grew up with and many of their relatives.

    I suspect that this closeness of the community has more to do with low suicidality than does latitude.

    I would expect that to be a higher rate of suicide in Caribbean people who are living overseas in North America or Europe.

    Yes it is notable that relatively few African Americans emigrate from the US, and yet there are many Afro–Caribbean countries and islands where a greater proportion of the population live overseas than at home, for example Guyana.

    The racist situation may be worse forthem overseas.

    There are two African American men in prison in Cuenca Ecuador. They immigrated to Ecuador and bought a farm, but local indigenous people buried bodies in their backyard, and then called the police and had them arrested for murder.

    Within an hour or two of their arrest, the indigenous people had taken over their land and destroyed their buildings and home.

    They are still in prison in Cuenca with little prospect of ever getting out.

    At least that is their story, and there is a long video interview with them done on a cell phone on a US blog.

    Suicide and schizoaffective disorders have no relationship. Depression and suicide do. Depressed people can be quite rational. In fact, sometimes I think that suicide comes when you’re at a vulnerable moment and you see the world as it really is.

    This is a sick way of looking at depression. The world as it really is, is a place of wonder and miracles and joy (that is sometimes punctuated with sadness) and every healthy living creature has a will to live so that tomorrow you can eat and screw and dance and sing and behold the miracles of creation (not necessarily in that order) some more. What you call a moment of clarity is really a moment of sickness.

    The reason that white people and Japanese kill themselves (and Negroes don't) is the same reason why you never hear of black women suffering from anorexia. Whites and Asians set impossibly high standards for themselves, because they know that civilization is created by the setting of high standards. This works, but only up to a point - you can't take perfection too far. If you are "perfectly" thin, then you die. Blacks are not interested in striving for greater perfection - they consider themselves perfect exactly as they are. And being perfect, there is no need to kill themselves.

    Blacks have a higher rate of schizophrenia by 2, maybe 3 fold. Not sure about schizoaffective, but as mania seems pretty common in blacks, it would surprise me if they did.

    The serious mental disorders are swamped by the mild ones in numbers. Around 1% of whites develop schizophrenia. Something like 30% of white women are depressed. Not sure about anxiety, but there are a ton of Xanax scripts written every month.

    Modern depression is different from classical depression. Classical depression is (was?) called “typical depression,” and the symptoms are things like not sleeping, not eating much... Most people with depression today have “atypical depression.” That has symptoms like sleeping more and eating more. I wanna say with typical depression flat affect is very common. But depressed women today will make it very clear that they are not happy.

    I guess that the current depression epidemic is caused by things like smaller or non-existent support networks, fewer family members, less exercise, and poor diet. Combine that with worse working conditions for the vast majority of people compared to say, 1970. Companies have found that the health plan covering anti-depressants is cheaper than raising wages or improving working conditions.

    Some things that are really common today were disorders twenty years ago. Remember when spending more than four (?) hours a week online was a disorder? I am sure most teenage boys spend enough time playing video games that it would have been a crisis at the turn of the Millenium. In real terms, people are poorer today than they were a couple of decades ago. The tv screens were smaller, sure. But housing, healthcare, and education, to name three, were a lot cheaper. Twenty years ago, more people knew their neighbors. Is your brother giving you the cold shoulder? That’s easier to cope with when you have two other siblings. Or aunts and uncles. Or cousins.

    The immiseration of the working class has pushed a lot of people into white-collar jobs when they would have been happier doing something more physical without tens of thousands of dollars in student loans over their heads. Fewer people can afford hobbies these days. Having some non-work friends took some of the stings out of work not going so well.

    Obesity is a big deal these days. Lots of people are too fat to exercise without serious risk joints. It should be harder on black women than white ones. But if you see an overweight actress, talking head, or “expert” on tv, there’s about a 90% chance that she’s black.

    I think blacks have a higher hedonic setpoint, to expand the “setpoint” term from obesity studies. They have a culture built up over generations to deal with being excluded from white society. Not to mention to cope with being poorer. Black people on the high end have better nominal standards of living, but it sure has not trickled down. Blacks likely benefit from a “hormetic” effect of stress. Stressors become easier to deal with when you have some all the time. Like, I am sure more people today have social phobia today than had it before covid, but more than a year of social isolation will have done a number on a lot of people. The everyday stresses of social interaction thickened peoples’ skins.

    Perhaps not living up to society’s expectations is easier on black people? They’ve been leery of white people for a while now. The immiseration is harder on white people. Many of whom prided themselves on being responsible with money, but after 2000 or so, especially 2008, found keeping up with necessary expenses to be much more difficult.

    Tl;dr Serious mental schizophreniform disorders are more common in blacks. By the numbers, they are swamped by mild mental illnesses in whites. Illnesses likely caused by modern life being crappy.

    For some reason - perhaps because white Americans are so obsessed with professional sports - many unworldly white American men seem to have this idea that black men are 'tougher' and more dominant than white men.

    If by “tougher” you mean physically more able and more likely to be aggressive, then yes, they are tougher. There’s plenty of both statistical data and anecdotal experience that attest to it.

    Blacks, of the West African variety mostly, have been vastly overrepresented in all combat sports (save, perhaps, for Olympic wrestling, where longer limbs tend to be a disadvantage). All else equal, blacks are on average faster, stronger, more agile and can take a punch better than men of any other race. It took White America 7 years and 27 rounds to take the heavyweight title from Jack Johnson; what does that tell you about black men’s athletic ability?

    Aggression is a double edged sword of course, so black men, way more often than nonblack men, don’t hold back even when a gun is pointed at them.

    Conversely, black men believe that them being tougher makes somehow them invincible, so they increasingly look down on nonblack men, sometimes with deadly results. There’s one notable incident a few years ago, where Bakari Henderson, a black American tourist, was beaten to death in Greece by a bunch of Serb tourists at a club. Turns out he hit on a Serb girl, which caused the ire of the group’s men, and a Serb goes ahead and slaps Henderson. Now, instead of reading the room, which had become hostile to him, and screwing off, he decides to throw a haymaker at the Serb. The rest of the Serbs went after him immediately and literally beat him to death outside the club. A few of them got 5-15 years in prison.

    Its difficult not to notice that Jews, notoriously overrepresented and active in MSM and entertainment industry ownership, management and opinion making, as well as academia and political lobbying and funding, are curiously very silent and passive in all this media sponsored anti Euro American ie anti White histeria.

    Not only that, many jewish influencers dare to jump on the bandwagon and dogpile on "whitey" culture and pose as "oppressed" minorities, as in:

    https://youtu.be/2PQruIfBVSs

    when in fact they are part of the *most* privileged minority in the US. The closest thing to real "systemic racism" in the US is this beyond criticism, unmentionable Jewish privilege. Then they are shocked their clear dogpiling generates anti-semitism. Real Jiggers at work.

    But yeah, Jews hating on Euro Christian culture is nothing new, anyone not convinced yet should read the following essay by this "conspiracy theorist",born Jewish, Christian conservative.

    Suicide and schizoaffective disorders have no relationship. Depression and suicide do. Depressed people can be quite rational. In fact, sometimes I think that suicide comes when you're at a vulnerable moment and you see the world as it really is.

    This is a sick way of looking at depression. The world as it really is, is a place of wonder and miracles and joy (that is sometimes punctuated with sadness) and every healthy living creature has a will to live so that tomorrow you can eat and screw and dance and sing and behold the miracles of creation (not necessarily in that order) some more. What you call a moment of clarity is really a moment of sickness.

    The reason that white people and Japanese kill themselves (and Negroes don’t) is the same reason why you never hear of black women suffering from anorexia. Whites and Asians set impossibly high standards for themselves, because they know that civilization is created by the setting of high standards. This works, but only up to a point – you can’t take perfection too far. If you are “perfectly” thin, then you die. Blacks are not interested in striving for greater perfection – they consider themselves perfect exactly as they are. And being perfect, there is no need to kill themselves.

    You should read Schopenhauer on "the will to live" before you use that phrase. Allowing that it is "sometimes punctuated with sadness" is an remarkably obtuse way of describing Vietnamese peasants being burned alive with napalm, or beagles having their faces chewed off by sand flies in one of Dr. Fauci's "experiments." You describe this as "sadness" rather than unspeakable agony because you only can grasp your own feelings, not theirs. And even then, you barely notice.

    But that's OK with you, because, like a 15 year old, you think tomorrow you might get laid. All in all, a pretty good time is had by all, amiright?

    Actually, on the Right, it is held that, according to the totally real and not at all a pseudoscience of "evolutionary psychology," White's big brains evolved to deal with conditions in the North, which were much harder than in Africa, where you could just lay around in a hammock and let bananas drop into your lap.

  64. Lots more white men are depressed than black men, who tend to be rather cheerful on average, as Darwin noted in the 1830s. So it’s not surprising that among black men who are depressed enough to qualify as depressed, fewer would be so depressed they seek treatment.

    There are of course tremendous downsides to living as an underclass black man in the United States, but it appears that a lot of their psychological and social needs are met in ways that they are not for men of other races in modern America. Perhaps a big part is that they get to be members of concentric tribes – from a street gang tribe, all they way up to the tribe “American black” which includes such notables as Barack Obama and LeBron James whose successes they share as their own. They even commonly call each other “brutha!” Sex is easy to come by and quite plentiful. All in all, even if shortened by premature deaths of violence or cardiovascular diseases, they do seem to get a lot of living in, and perhaps much more than others on a more even keeled path in life.

    Some obscure black person (Black!) reads about the death of another black man (from a longtime cancer) and suddenly feels “death is looming?”

    Did he sleep through all of those biology classes? Is everyone in his family tree still living?

    Of course this line of non thought leads to his racist conclusions that whitey is out to get him (Whitey!).

    Isn’t this obsession with death a Jewish thing? So Woody Allen would have us believe.

    So with a mainly White Jewish readership (locally anyway) this black idiot decides that to continue his grift as a “thinker” or something, he needs to pontificate on mortality in the Times?

    As for me, I’ve concluded reluctantly that I need to emulate my (late) pet dogs and cats. See, animals don’t fear death like humans. Sure they don’t want to be killed and fear attack or pain, but they don’t really seem to mourn their litter mates when they die.

    So to newly fearful black man, “be like your cat!” Or you can be like those COVID hypochondriacs and worry about dying all the time. Nobody else cares, since this is common knowledge. Our ticket to this planet is one-way.

    Whitey isn’t your problem. And in fact as others here note, most blacks are more religious and fewer seem to suffer the Jewish disease of wallowing in death-fear.

    Evidently meeting Moses again isn’t as comforting as meeting Jesus. Moses wants to give you stone tablets full of rules and nonsensical dietary rules. Jesus is all about loaves and tasty fish. If you’re lucky, he’ll even turn that tap water into Chateau Lafite for you! You just gotta believe!

    Women are twice as likely as men to take antidepressant medication. Why are one in four women is on psych meds? Can so many US women really be mentally ill ?

    Are women crazy? The world's "great thinkers" have tended to say so, characterising women as the weaker sex both physically and psychologically. In Plato's "Timaeus", female moodiness and misbehavior are explained with the wandering uterus theory. a Greek surgeon by the name of Galen would expand upon the Athenian's explanation. For him, ladies' mental ills stem from their sex drive: women become "hysterical" when they don't get properly laid. until the mid 19th century, there were several "prescriptions" available for nasty cases of hysteria: Married women needed to have more sex with their husbands, and single females were told to seek "pelvic massages" from qualified technicians, to produce "hysterical paroxysm" (what's now known as an "orgasm"). The latter practice would eventually get recommended to women regardless of marital status, achieving its peak around the late 19th century. Vibrator treatments, somewhat unsurprisingly, would become one of the most popular outpatient procedures of that era.

    Women today are not getting laid enough, resulting in increased mental illness and depression among females. The proportion of women who had sex at least once a week fell from 66% to 50% over the last twenty years. Millennials report having fewer sexual encounters on average than the three generations before them. Women had much more sex in the 1950s, when the average woman was married by the age of 21 and their husbands had much more testosterone than the soy boys we have today. Without a strong man to have sex with females will go crazy. No Wonder so many college girls now identify as non-binary. They are not getting laid enough. This is the same reason 25% of women are on some type of psych drug. Testosterone levels have fallen significantly since 1960 and the consequence is more crazy women getting hysterical from not getting steady sex. Twenty-something women today are having much less sex than their great-grandmothers got back in the 1940s.

    Judging by the obsession with everything from menstruation to birth control by the MEN OF UNZ most of you need to find a regular partner and get laid regularly or get castrated and forget about sex completely.

    When women talk about men they talk about what men do. When the MEN OF UNZ write about women it’s either advocating sex with 12 year olds or focused on reproduction.

    A reason why whites have a high rate of depression, is that white women love to be taking pills, and the doctor can't prescribe the pills without assigning a diagnosis.

  82. Reference black vs white mental health, the two races have different fundamental psyche-cognitive profiles. Reminds me of Humphrey Bogart and Dooley Wilson in Casablanca when Rick is drinking and moody while Sam is happily playing “Shine” and other classics with exaggerated merriment.

    In the current environment, black primitiveness is an asset for them in a sense. Whites tend towards hyper-individual isolation. In the past, European culture established institutions and cultural practices to deal with this problem, though it still had a widespread impact in Northern Europe.

    With the decline of those institutions and practices and the downfall of the largely white middle class, it’s not surprising that white mental (and physical) health is in decline.

    You can see how, if you extrapolate this tendency, you could end up with a scenario like HG Wells’s Time Machine and the two races–Morlocks and Eloi–which is sort of what you might get with a “woke,” intellectually potent but physically frail upper class, a primitive lower class and those in between dying out because they have too much consciousness to function like a black and too little to ascend to the manipulative multi-racial (but mostly white) “elite.”

    Yes, black men as a group are “likely to die sooner than most” -primarily because they are shot and killed by other black men, usually in their 20’s and teens in gang warfare.

    Envision and think of what the history of Ameria would have been like and what the US would be like today if not for slavery and the current presence of over 40-millon blacks and millions or even tens of millions more in the near and distant future.

    The “legacy of slavery” in indeed a curse and tragedy -for whites and what’s left of white America- exacerbated by an invasion of tens or millions of Mestizos and pure Amerindians and millions of Muslims and sundry “Asians” and their offspring that will soon transform the US into a nonwhite-majority country in which European-Americans as a group in most states and in hundreds of cities will be an increasingly dispossessed and persecuted minority

  84. @Travis
    Women are twice as likely as men to take antidepressant medication. Why are one in four women is on psych meds? Can so many US women really be mentally ill ?

    Are women crazy? The world's "great thinkers" have tended to say so, characterising women as the weaker sex both physically and psychologically. In Plato's "Timaeus", female moodiness and misbehavior are explained with the wandering uterus theory. a Greek surgeon by the name of Galen would expand upon the Athenian's explanation. For him, ladies' mental ills stem from their sex drive: women become "hysterical" when they don't get properly laid. until the mid 19th century, there were several "prescriptions" available for nasty cases of hysteria: Married women needed to have more sex with their husbands, and single females were told to seek "pelvic massages" from qualified technicians, to produce "hysterical paroxysm" (what's now known as an "orgasm"). The latter practice would eventually get recommended to women regardless of marital status, achieving its peak around the late 19th century. Vibrator treatments, somewhat unsurprisingly, would become one of the most popular outpatient procedures of that era.

    Women today are not getting laid enough, resulting in increased mental illness and depression among females. The proportion of women who had sex at least once a week fell from 66% to 50% over the last twenty years. Millennials report having fewer sexual encounters on average than the three generations before them. Women had much more sex in the 1950s, when the average woman was married by the age of 21 and their husbands had much more testosterone than the soy boys we have today. Without a strong man to have sex with females will go crazy. No Wonder so many college girls now identify as non-binary. They are not getting laid enough. This is the same reason 25% of women are on some type of psych drug. Testosterone levels have fallen significantly since 1960 and the consequence is more crazy women getting hysterical from not getting steady sex. Twenty-something women today are having much less sex than their great-grandmothers got back in the 1940s.

    Replies: @RobinG, @Ralph L, @Alden, @Hernan Pizzaro del Blanco, @Vinnyvette

    Good observation. Women are having less sex today than at any point in History. This is due to higher rates of Obesity combined with the lower testosterone of men and the widespread availability of porn.

    Back in 1980 just 6% of Americans under the age of 30 were obese. Today 33% of young Americans are obese. This makes it harder for females to find a boyfriend resulting in increased anxiety, depression and moodiness. Men can deal with being single far easier than females and males find it easier to enjoy one-night stands or banging prostitutes or using porn to satisfy their sexual needs. Females have an easier time getting laid, but typically do not want one-night stands and are often very resentful of guys who bang them and don’t call them back. Multiple sex partners does not improve the mental health of females, and actually harms their mental state. The high rate of females on psychotropic drugs is the result of less pair bonding , lower marriage rates and less sex.

    Um, no. Their average lifestyle is not good, but genes account for a lot in lifespan and health outcomes. You see this manifest in all sorts of health-related issues. East Asians generally die from cancer (stomach esp.), South Asians (even those with a very healthy lifestyles) are far more likely to drop dead with heart issues at younger ages than others. And you should know about the genetic issues with certain Jewish groups due to the founder effect.

  87. “Relatively speaking, a bigger problem for black men are homicidal ideations.”

    Well ain’t that the truth! The uptick in violent crime is not going to go anywhere until society as a whole is willing to confront the ugly reality that black folks (not each and every person, but a significant portion of the community) are aggressively violent and homicidal. Even for those black folks who are not violent and homicidal, they are more than likely far too willing to tolerate rampant crime in their communities as opposed to having a law-and-order police presence. Sad.

    As to the article by Joel Daniels, how does the New York Times even publish this dreck? This clown and lumps together every black death, whether from natural causes, to gang related violence like Nipsey Hussle (that name always makes me chuckle), to people who actively resisted law-enforcement (George Floyd and Eric garner). Apparently Joel Daniels thinks that black folks are a divine lot, who deserve to live life unfettered of any illnesses or bad choices.

    i am Black, always.
     
    Not for nothing, but he who steals Joél Leon Daniels' talent steals trash.

    He is a 'co-parent' and has a 'partner.' He makes other people refer to him as 'they.' Even if the 'co-parent' is a woman, he's definitely a recipient of the Charles Blow Fruity and Fastidious Fellowship for Peevish Black Mens.

    Joel Daniels sounds like the quintessential passive- aggressive homosexual. Too much estrogen is coursing through his veins. People like this (e.g., Jussie Smollett) are constantly looking to play the role of the victim. If anything, society unfortunately has given them license to do this by enhancing the Pokémon points for being a victim. Being black and homosexual is a winning hand in today’s world. The fact that these weaklings feel the need to abase themselves in order to beg for victimhood status is nauseating. It’s really sad and pathetic when you think about it. I pity these fools.

    Interesting how modern psychological research comes to the same general conclusions about race differences in temperament as the early civilizations of the Middle East writing at a time when the ancestors of our Founding Fathers were literally living in huts.

    But what about Whites v Fancy Asians? Who is more innately prone to suicide (after correcting for the boost Asians get from more close-knit and supportive families). I don’t have numbers, but it seems Ashkenazis are also at high risk for suicide (despite Jewish cultural/religious prohibitions - basically the opposite of the Japanese). I once read that anxiety is deeply connected to depression, which would explain a lot of Jews (hopefully my ‘Jew-normal’ anxiety doesn’t morph into anything worse…). You could argue an easy-going and sunny disposition is another ‘privilege’, but not one enjoyed by as many Ice People.

    Judging by the obsession with everything from menstruation to birth control by the MEN OF UNZ most of you need to find a regular partner and get laid regularly or get castrated and forget about sex completely.

    When women talk about men they talk about what men do. When the MEN OF UNZ write about women it’s either advocating sex with 12 year olds or focused on reproduction.

    If by "tougher" you mean physically more able and more likely to be aggressive, then yes, they are tougher. There's plenty of both statistical data and anecdotal experience that attest to it.

    Blacks, of the West African variety mostly, have been vastly overrepresented in all combat sports (save, perhaps, for Olympic wrestling, where longer limbs tend to be a disadvantage). All else equal, blacks are on average faster, stronger, more agile and can take a punch better than men of any other race. It took White America 7 years and 27 rounds to take the heavyweight title from Jack Johnson; what does that tell you about black men's athletic ability?

    Aggression is a double edged sword of course, so black men, way more often than nonblack men, don't hold back even when a gun is pointed at them.

    Conversely, black men believe that them being tougher makes somehow them invincible, so they increasingly look down on nonblack men, sometimes with deadly results. There's one notable incident a few years ago, where Bakari Henderson, a black American tourist, was beaten to death in Greece by a bunch of Serb tourists at a club. Turns out he hit on a Serb girl, which caused the ire of the group's men, and a Serb goes ahead and slaps Henderson. Now, instead of reading the room, which had become hostile to him, and screwing off, he decides to throw a haymaker at the Serb. The rest of the Serbs went after him immediately and literally beat him to death outside the club. A few of them got 5-15 years in prison.
    What's interesting about this is that the story didn't gain much traction and his name isn't heard along with other black men who died violently by whites.

What you call a moment of clarity is really a moment of sickness.

    The reason that white people and Japanese kill themselves (and Negroes don't) is the same reason why you never hear of black women suffering from anorexia. Whites and Asians set impossibly high standards for themselves, because they know that civilization is created by the setting of high standards. This works, but only up to a point - you can't take perfection too far. If you are "perfectly" thin, then you die.

    Women are twice as likely as men to take antidepressant medication. Why are one in four women is on psych meds? Can so many US women really be mentally ill ?

    Are women crazy? The world's "great thinkers" have tended to say so, characterising women as the weaker sex both physically and psychologically. In Plato's "Timaeus", female moodiness and misbehavior are explained with the wandering uterus theory. a Greek surgeon by the name of Galen would expand upon the Athenian's explanation. For him, ladies' mental ills stem from their sex drive: women become "hysterical" when they don't get properly laid. until the mid 19th century, there were several "prescriptions" available for nasty cases of hysteria: Married women needed to have more sex with their husbands, and single females were told to seek "pelvic massages" from qualified technicians, to produce "hysterical paroxysm" (what's now known as an "orgasm"). The latter practice would eventually get recommended to women regardless of marital status, achieving its peak around the late 19th century. Vibrator treatments, somewhat unsurprisingly, would become one of the most popular outpatient procedures of that era.

    Women today are not getting laid enough, resulting in increased mental illness and depression among females. The proportion of women who had sex at least once a week fell from 66% to 50% over the last twenty years. Millennials report having fewer sexual encounters on average than the three generations before them. Women had much more sex in the 1950s, when the average woman was married by the age of 21 and their husbands had much more testosterone than the soy boys we have today. Without a strong man to have sex with females will go crazy. No Wonder so many college girls now identify as non-binary. They are not getting laid enough. This is the same reason 25% of women are on some type of psych drug. Testosterone levels have fallen significantly since 1960 and the consequence is more crazy women getting hysterical from not getting steady sex. Twenty-something women today are having much less sex than their great-grandmothers got back in the 1940s.

    Actually, Black individuals have higher rates of schizophrenia and Bipolar disorder than White people do, and the focus of the bipolar is on the mania component much more strongly. It is very true that Black people have extremely high self esteem, and are likely to respond affirmatively to questions such as "I've noticed that I'm more intelligent than most people give me credit for," and "Most of the time, I'm better than other people at most things I try to do." "People who respond negatively to my comments are usually just jealous of my abilities." These responses are to questions on the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory. The MMPI provides broad information about aspects of personality and the existence of components of psychopathology. It's used in criminology as well, and many people who respond with extremely expansive, complimentary self-evaluations often exist in a delusional world that is very far from reality. I was surprised to read this because it is not exactly truthful, except for the part that Black men and women have low suicide rates and high self-esteem, the opposite of White menand women who have (White men) high suicide rates and lower, more realistic self-esteem.
    The gradual increase to now continuous focus on race by the media has done a terrible thing to the Black American mind - a crime, really, by constantly propagandizing race until Black people think of little or nothing else. I'm not speaking about Black professionals who have obviously learned to focus on other things, but of people who get up every morning and the first thought that pops into their head is their skin color, that they are different, and the falsehood that they will be forcibly stopped from achieving their dream if they have one. All that stands in stark contrast with what is really going on. It is a very sick component of our society that claims to be "hunted in the streets" while they are actually, actively hunting others in the streets.

    For the most part they’re both hunter and hunted; blacks kill other blacks more than they kill whites. (Of course they kill more whites than vice versa, but that’s not the point here.)

    If by "tougher" you mean physically more able and more likely to be aggressive, then yes, they are tougher. There's plenty of both statistical data and anecdotal experience that attest to it.

    Blacks, of the West African variety mostly, have been vastly overrepresented in all combat sports (save, perhaps, for Olympic wrestling, where longer limbs tend to be a disadvantage). All else equal, blacks are on average faster, stronger, more agile and can take a punch better than men of any other race. It took White America 7 years and 27 rounds to take the heavyweight title from Jack Johnson; what does that tell you about black men's athletic ability?

    Aggression is a double edged sword of course, so black men, way more often than nonblack men, don't hold back even when a gun is pointed at them.

    Conversely, black men believe that them being tougher makes somehow them invincible, so they increasingly look down on nonblack men, sometimes with deadly results. There's one notable incident a few years ago, where Bakari Henderson, a black American tourist, was beaten to death in Greece by a bunch of Serb tourists at a club. Turns out he hit on a Serb girl, which caused the ire of the group's men, and a Serb goes ahead and slaps Henderson. Now, instead of reading the room, which had become hostile to him, and screwing off, he decides to throw a haymaker at the Serb. The rest of the Serbs went after him immediately and literally beat him to death outside the club. A few of them got 5-15 years in prison.
    What's interesting about this is that the story didn't gain much traction and his name isn't heard along with other black men who died violently by whites.

    If it happened in the US, we’d probably still be hearing about it. And the men who did the beating would still be in prison after James Fields got out.

    No He didn’t. God commands us to choose life but He gives us free will. If Lewis sinned and pulled the trigger, that’s on him, not on God.

    Sounds like a real Hamlet style soliloquy: 'Oh, to be black and so talented yet to labor under the shadow of death'. The drama! Are there any blacks capable of writing about anything other than themselves? Lot of self-absorption going on here. One could get a distorted view of blacks through the medium of media which features athletes and other slim types. Very many blacks are quite obese with some being downright gargantuan needing walkers or motorized chairs. Throw in smoking, drink and drugs and one has a nice formula for an early expiration date. Then of course there's that troublesome homicide rate that just won't go down. The white depression rate is higher because they're the ones who have to work to pay for all this. We pay while they play. Then having to listen to all their whiny manure, it's just too much.

    “We pay while they play” is actually moronic. This entire response is clearly an idiots spiraling thoughts.
