AMA’s new racial equality guidance could put Black people at risk of death

The American Medical Association’s new accreditation guidelines suggest genetic testing of Black patients is racist – and such testing must end.

The AMA and the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) are the same groups that recently released a new “Health Equity” guidance banning common terms such as “morbid obesity.”

The AMA and AAMC claim genetic testing of minority patients is racist and can “create harm” and “leads directly to racial health inequities.”

However, some medical conditions disproportionately affect minorities, such as Blacks, Hispanics and Jews.

Sickle cell anemia is more common in people of African descent (8 of 10 sickle cell patients are Black). The sickle cell trait can also affect Hispanics.

The AMA and AAMC also recommended that the licensing exam for new doctors change from numerical scoring to pass-fail.

A group of Black doctors and professors warn that the new accreditation guidelines puts minorities and the general public at risk of serious harm or death.

Five black professors told the New England Journal of Medicine in March, that denying genetic race testing is “a form of naive ‘color blindness'” that would “perpetuate and potentially exacerbate disparities.”

Jeff Singer, a general surgeon in Arizona, says “A lot of conditions,” such as triple-negative breast cancer, which disproportionately affects Black women – “vary based on genetics. We’re talking about matters of life and death here.”

Singer argues that the AMA and AAMC’s accreditation guidance will result in doctors who are under qualified and put lives at risk.

“They’re trying to superimpose social science onto medical science,” Singer said. “But as a consumer of health care, I’d just like to know that whoever is treating me is qualified. Because my life is on the line.”

PA Cops Who Fatally Shot Fanta Bility Fired And Charged, DA Withdraws 1st-Degree Murder Charges Against Black Teens

PA Cops Who Fatally Shot Fanta Bility Fired And Charged, DA Withdraws 1st-Degree Murder Charges Against Black Teens

The three officers who recklessly opened fire on shooting suspects a block away from a high school football game in Sharon Hill, Pennsylvania, on August 27, ultimately striking and killing 8-year-old Fanta Bility and wounding several others, were fired  Thursday, two days after they were finally charged in Fanta’s death.

According to CNN, ex-officers Devon Smith, Sean Dolan and Brian Devaney were each charged Tuesday with one count of voluntary manslaughter, one count of involuntary manslaughter and 10 counts of reckless endangerment. The office of Delaware County District Attorney Jack Stollsteimer said they found manslaughter charges were “appropriate” in this case rather than murder in the third degree because there was no evidence of malice.

This brings us to the two Black shooting suspects who were charged with first-degree murder in Fanta’s death, despite the fact that, unlike the officers, they killed no one. As we previously reported, 16-year-old Angelo “AJ” Ford and 18-year-old Hasein Strand were charged with first-degree murder, aggravated assault, and other gun charges because they allegedly shot at each other following a verbal dispute, which prompted the cops to start firing wildly a block away.

On Tuesday, Stollsteimer directed his office to withdraw the charges against Angelo and Strand—who, again, killed zero people on August 27. Strand pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and illegal possession of a firearm. He was sentenced to 32 to 64 months in prison and will remain under court supervision until 2030. Angelo, who allegedly initiated the shooting between him and Strand, still faces attempted murder, aggravated assault, and gun possession charges.

“From the moment the call came in on August 27, my team of investigators and prosecutors has worked tirelessly to achieve justice for Fanta and the other victims of that tragic night,” Stollsteimer said in a statement. “Today’s charges are a big step forward in that process.”

Bruce Castor, the attorney representing the Bility family, told CNN he’s “convinced the DA’s office and the grand jury did exactly what they should have done.”

“I am very pleased with how the DA’s office handled the case and the Bility family is likewise very impressed,” he continued.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, the firing of the officers was decided after a 6-1 vote by the Sharon Hill Borough Council. Councilmember Sandra Holcombe was the lone dissenter. (Some people just really love cops and think they should be protected at all costs—including the cost of an 8-year-old Black girl’s life.)

Bail has been set at  $500,000 for each former officer charged in Fanta’s death. A preliminary hearing is set for January 27.

Charges dropped after wife of Steelers QB Dwayne Haskins knocked his tooth out | Latest Celebrity News, Sports and Entertainment

Charges have been dropped against the wife of Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins who knocked his tooth out during a domestic violence incident.

The Clark County District Attorney’s dropped a felony abuse charge against Kalabrya Gondrezick-Haskins since her husband declined to testify against her.

Court records obtained by TMZ show Kalabrya caused “substantial” injuries to Haskins – including knocking his tooth out – during an altercation in Las Vegas back in July.

In addition, police noted that Haskins had a busted lip when they arrived to check on him after he was attacked in their hotel room.

The dispute arose because Kalabrya was upset that he spent too much time with his boys at a nightclub.

Things went left when he got back to the hotel room that night.

Haskins told police they were in Vegas to celebrate their engagement. He married her anyway, even though she throws hands better than any man.

Check out thirst trap photos of Mrs. Haskins below.
