Jay Harold has written many posts about Black Women’s Health. In fact, Black Women make up over 60% of Jay Harold’s audience.
Here’s an edgy love song for the Beautiful Black Woman. This song was created in 2016 by “Roulette Da Pitboss1 ,” and captures the essence of a Black Woman. Proud, loving, caring and giving are uncommon traits commonly found in my sisters of color.
”Living in the moment means letting go of the past and not waiting for the future. It means living your life consciously, aware that each moment you breathe is a gift.” – Oprah Winfrey
The following quotes are a tribute to you, my sisters:
“It’s not the load that breaks you down, it’s the way you carry it.” – Lena Horne
“A really strong woman accepts the war she went through and is ennobled by her scars.” – Carly Simon
“There never was any heart truly great and generous, that was not also tender and compassionate.” – Robert Frost
I’m a Black American, I am proud of my race. I am proud of who I am. I have a lot of pride and dignity. Michael Jackson
Black People are Falling behind Financially
November 15, 2017, article2 in the LA Times shows how far we are behind. African Americans have the lowest earnings of any racial group by far. While median household income for African Americans was just over $39,000 last year, it was over $47,000 for Latinos, over $65,000 for whites and over $81,000 for Asian American households.
Lower incomes make it harder to get by, let alone get ahead. African Americans are much less likely than whites to own homes or invest in the stock market, in part because low wages leave them with limited extra income to save up for a down payment.
African Americans also are more likely to lack health insurance. The Census released data this week showing that the uninsured rate for the nation overall was 8.8%, an all-time low. But it was 10.5% for African Americans.
Many books and research papers have delved into why African Americans continue to struggle financially. Williams Rodgers, chief economist at the Heldrich Center for Workforce Development at Rutgers University3 , is one of the scholars who has studied the issue extensively. He co-wrote a report last year for the left-leaning Economic Policy Institute that found that black-white wage gaps are larger today than they were in 1979.
