Do They Really Care about.....
Are the Powers that Be really wicked? Do they despise US that much? Do men and women really matter? And does color still play huge part of OUR day to day Life?
Are the Powers that Be really wicked?
The Bible states:
Ephesians Degree 6 verse 12
For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Do men and women really matter?
A raise the question and give definitions to support my thoughts about a heavy subject that kills about people every year. I want to make raise the consciences level of people with this blog post.
Who do you love more Your MOM or DAD? Answer this question to yourself………….Now ask which one does society care about the most?
I was watching the Eagles & Redskins game on Oct. 3, 2010 over a friend’s house and I notice a few players wearing something pink. I took a closer look to see a pink ribbon on the field and then pink ribbons on the back of helmets. It dawn on me that October is BREAST CANCER AWARENESS MONTH. Then I realize that SEPTEMEBER was PROSTATE CANCER AWARNESS MONTH and NO! Support was shown for such a cause that affects men across the broad especially African-American men. I began to question the actions taken by the NFL…..I turn to my wife and said “is Breast Cancer BIG Business? or do people really care”? Please don’t take this blog out of context….I am just asking the POWERS that BE do they really care?......if Prostate Cancer was last month ; why not show support for that cause if half the players or even all the players in the NFL are Black men which are a higher risk to Prostate Cancer then European men.
Oct. 7,2010 on my job they are passing around a flyer for women to get examination today at the head office on such and such day ….I’m a government contractor who works for a BIG agency….WHY DIDN’T THEY DO THIS FOR PROSTATE CANCER!!! The agency claims to be an equal opportunity but when it comes to health you exclude the MEN and acppect the WOMEN….
The American Cancer Society's most recent estimates for prostate cancer in the United States are for 2010:
•About 217,730 new cases of prostate cancer
•About 32,050 deaths from prostate cancer
Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer found in American men, other than skin cancer. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in men. (Lung cancer is the first.) One man in 6 will get prostate cancer during his lifetime. And one man in 36 will die of this disease. More than 2 million men in the United States who have had prostate cancer at some point are still alive today. The death rate for prostate cancer is going down, and the disease is being found earlier, too.
The American Cancer Society's most recent estimates for breast cancer in the United States are for 2010:
•About 207,090 new cases of invasive breast cancer in women
•About 54,010 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS) will be found (CIS is non-invasive and is the earliest form of breast cancer).
•About 39,840 deaths from breast cancer (women)
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States, other than skin cancer. It is the second leading cause of cancer death in women, after lung cancer.
The chance of a woman having invasive breast cancer some time during her life is a little less 1 in 8. The chance of dying from breast cancer is about 1 in 35. Breast cancer death rates have been going down. This is probably the result of finding the cancer earlier and better treatment. Right now there are more than 2½ million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
Back to my thoughts……
Are the Powers that BE playing a Numbers game….Let’s look at the NFL Owners: Most are European Males that are at a low risk of getting PROSTATE CANCER, but the wives of the owners and coach (European) have mothers, daughters and sisters that may have it or died from the dis-ease. Ummmmmm but the players are Black of African descent; with a higher risk of getting PROSTATE CANCER….Lets side track for a moment and think about Father’s Day /Mother’s day commercials which one is the BIGGEST!!!! Do they despise US that much? Why not make a conscience effort to balance it out….Women’s Basketball is coming up right? So the owners and coaches SHOULD say lets support Prostate Cancer by wearing Blue Ribbons. (NOT) no money in that …. nor is that the Moth of Prostate Cancer.
In Order for equality to take place here in North America; It must first be shown to the human being (man, woman and child), but North American don’t give a DAMN about MEN!! Especially the Black man.
Does color still play huge part in OUR day to day Life? YES, if it isn’t Green then no equality for YOU!
Note: This post was not to downplay “BREAST CANCER” at all. This was to bring attention to whoever reads this blog to THINK and ask questions. My Aunt died from Breast Cancer and even my uncle as Prostate Cancer in which most MEN who have it don’t share that information with the world or even close family members. Let’s educate OURSELVES more!!!
Mental Note: WE DON’T HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE MONTH TO DO CHARITY WORKS!!
EAT TO LIVE!!!!!!
