So… does race exist or not?

Is it a social construct or not?

And what’s with only white people volunteering for clinical trials? It’s almost something constituting Stuff Black People Don’t Like...

[National Academies report cites ‘urgent’ need to recruit more diverse participants for clinical trials, StatNews.com, May 17, 2022]:

The persistent lack of diversity among participants in clinical trials is a critical issue that is harming both populations that have long been left out of pivotal medical studies and the entire biomedical research enterprise, according to the authors of a report released Tuesday by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine.

Describing the need to move away from trials that focus largely on white men as “urgent,” the report’s authors called for a paradigm shift that gives less power to institutions that fund and conduct clinical research and more to communities under study. The sternly worded report said funding to include and recruit more diverse participants should be a priority that is enforced and said such investments could eventually lead to massive cost savings as the nation’s health disparities are reduced.

“An equitable clinical research enterprise would include trials and studies that match the demographics of the disease burden under study,” the report said. “However, we remain far from achieving this goal.”

The report cited many studies that show a lack of diversity persists in clinical trials — even for diseases that disproportionately impact non-white populations. One Food and Drug Administration analysis of clinical trials conducted between 2015 and 2018 showed that 78% of participants were non-Hispanic white people. More than 97% of participants in a Phase 2 trial of the Alzheimer’s drug crenezumab were white and just 2.8% were Hispanic even though Hispanic people are 1.2 times more likely to develop Alzheimer’s, the report said.

This lack of diversity has stubbornly persisted despite decades of attention to the issue, dozens of reports, and the creation of new offices in federal agencies to encourage broader participation in trials. A 2015 Government Accountability Office report found little improvement in trial diversity had occurred since 2004. To this day, the new report said, “research participants remain mostly white and male.”

The report’s authors noted that diversity targets for clinical trials are seldom enforced, and they urged better tracking of the diversity of trial participants, withholding of funding for trials that do not meet goals, and offering tax credits or other financial incentives for those who do increase representation.

To illustrate why diversity in clinical trials is critical, the report’s authors cited the blood clot inhibitor warfarin as a cautionary tale. While the drug has been approved for use since 1951, it was not until 2013 that scientists realized genetic ancestry impacted how the drug should be dosed. Many people with Asian ancestry require lower doses and suffered excess bleeding when the drug was used at dosages set after trials conducted on mostly white men, the report said.

ORDER IT NOW

The authors cited other serious issues caused by the lack of diversity, including the inability to generalize research to the larger U.S. population; difficulty recruiting enough participants for many studies, which is the leading cause of clinical trial failure; and a lack of trust in the clinical research and medical establishments by those who have been historically excluded from clinical trials.

If race doesn’t exist, what’s the problem with white people disproportionately volunteering for clinical trials, considering medicine should impact all races equally if race is just a social construct. Right?

Seems like race is more than skin deep after all.

  1. Whites are more altruistic? That cannot be.

    Evil whites prevent Blacks from joining research groups.

    Actually, for statistical power, homogenous groups are better, correct?

    But there must be some testing for race differences in treatment outcomes and dosages. But, race differences don’t exist. I understand their inner conflict ……….

  2. Is it is? Or is it ain’t?
    When it favors the left. When it suits them. When it supports the narrative. Otherwise they move the goalposts. Am I right?

  5. So what do the good right White think folks at the National Academies propose? Bus a bunch of Black folks over to the clinic at the point of a National Guardsman’s gun?

  6. Volunteering for a drug trial is like having a job. You must go somewhere, do something, follow directions, follow protocols, listen, be patient, file reports, make a log etc. Negroes will not do this, period. Nobody gonna tell me what to do attitude dooms most if not all negro participation.

  7. usNthem says:

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, when it comes to Whites and blacks, we can’t win for losing. No amount of altruism, whether explicit or implicit will be positively acknowledged. Literally everything Whites do or don’t do for the nog contingent will be spun in a negative manner to one degree or another. Nothing is ever good enough. We need separation from these creatures.

  8. Race not existing is the old narrative.

    Now it’s the only thing that does exist. Well that and gender.

  10. So just stop volunteering….see what happens.Oh wait,we know what will happen…..diseases are impacting the black community and white people won’t help.T’hell with ‘em….I quit!

  11. possumman says:

    If you have ever participated in a clinical trial there are generally a lot of requirements with which POC will probably not comply–show up on time for check-ups–keep a symptom diary -answer call for regular check ins-etc. you don’t just get a shot and a check for \$1200—it is not one and done –it is an ongoing obligation -often for a year or more

    description of Shaw neighborhood :

    Shaw is a quiet neighborhood of tree-lined streets and large Victorian homes surrounded by green spaces. Tower Grove Park has a 19th-century palm house, pavilions and a water-lily pond, and hosts a farmers’ market from spring to fall. The Missouri Botanical Garden is home to conservatories and international gardens, while compact Compton Hill Reservoir Park has a historic Romanesque-style water tower. ― Google

    No matter what white people do a ready made narrative is waiting to demonize them. If whites weren’t volunteering for clinical trials then the narrative would be that whites are selfish and privileged for expecting non-whites to volunteer for these trials.

    Interesting, because I still haven’t been able to access a Yahoo linked news story that has comments, even though they have a comments button. I remember when Yahoo stopped allowing coments due to lots of race realist answers and being called out for underreporting of the race of perps. I give them less than 6 months before they remove their comment section again, due to to many people pointing out the truch or omitted facts from an article featuring a black criminal.

  26. @loren

    Exactly. I have donated 10 gallons of whole blood over many years and I have never seen a black person donating blood. They receive a lot of blood transfusions, but their giving is way behind their taking. And it is a shame, since they benefit better from blood donated by other blacks that are genetically close to them. That one episode of MASH with the wounded soldier asking that they not give him the wrong colored blood was just plain wrong. Misinformation.

  27. How about organ donation?
    Blacks tend to be well represented on the receiving side,what with their kidneys suffering the after effects of redlining,but nigh invisible on the giving side.

  28. @Hannah Katz

    Hannah, I admire your consistent dedication to others. It is truly noble and altruistic. Kudos of the highest order!

    Years ago I knew a gentleman who donated blood two to three times a year since his teens. Interestingly, he was never sick. And I mean never.

    Now it turns out that donating blood is actually quite healthy, as lowering ferritin levels is associated with better health (or so it is claimed.) I hope so. Those who donate blood truly do give the gift of life.

    (Sadly, being a cancer survivor, I am not allowed to donate blood, at least in New Zealand.)

    Cheers!

    Does anybody remember the young black “ teen “ who needed an organ but couldn’t get it because others were more deserving?The “ fambly” cried “ waciss waciss” till the hospital gave him the organ.Sadly he later became a “victim of the violence that plagues the black community “.As I recall,they couldn’t save the organ (.pretty sure it was a kidney).

    Boy the way Glenn Miller played. ———-I haven’t been able to verify this,but i have heard that a black doctor and a black nurse were involved in the Tuskegee study. They were unhappy when the study was shut down.Good paying jobs were scarce.

    @Bardon Kaldlan

    Bardon Kaldan—————Solving the organ donor shortage is easy.If you won’t give.You don’t get. Upon admission ask each patient, “Are you an organ donor” A recorded “NO” bans you from the transplant list for 5 years. A relative who blocks a verified donor is blocked for life. Bam! No more donor shortages.

    “Lions reacts to blacks more intelligently than whites do.” Obviously! Whites as a collective are cucks, that’s why they find themselves in this extermination predicament. No ethnicity, no race in all of history welcomed & even financed its’ own extermination. We violate the Laws Of Nature at our peril. Nature will ensure our suicidal gene will go extinct. Nature does not & cannot reward weakest.

  38. @Differentkindaguy

    As I recall, it was a heart… and it was his SECOND transplant because he failed to follow the anti-rejection protocols for his first.

    Upshot:  some poor White patient died so that the jogger could die in a car crash instead of a hospital bed.

  39. @Mr. Rational

    I remember that story and the details of what happened too. The “jogger” should never have been given a second heart transplant much less the first. What a waste! Plus, considering that he received two heart transplants, that actually cost two much more deserving people their lives. Whomever made the incredibly stupid “politically correct” decision to let two much more worthy people die in favor of “saving” a useless “jogger”…. well, I can’t imagine a doctor would be that stupid so I’m guessing it was a paper shuffling member of hospital administration.

    Was he the same one who got a second heart transplant because he did not take proper care of the first?

    Also, inquiring minds want to know – did he get a “Black [sic] heart” 🖤 or a white heart 🤍 ?

  43. As every picture i have seen about monkey pox shows negroes, I can only hope this newest gift from Africa, will have a taste for nig DNA. I mean the name alone; Monkey pox sounds like something nogs catch… Perhaps astrain has evolved that will cure our American monkeys, of which there are many.
    GO MONKEY POX!
