Prevalence: (n) the percentage of a population that is affected. Subjective: (n) modified or affected by personal views

prevajective: (n) population that is affected by personal views.

(I made that one up of course) I think it is just human nature to try to project ones personal experiences, opinions and views onto everyone. For example, Atheist believe all people should be atheist. Christians believe all people should be Christians,. Muslims, Homosexuals, Black Panthers, Bill Maher (I’ll be doing a piece on him on the next several days ~ fire!)all advancing the ideologue of their experience to win over converts.

Which leads me to my point, this next book which is getting some play (reminds me of that “the secret” book). So you think Terrie M. Williams has struggled with depression? More over, didn’t my great great grandfather deal with a more dire circumstance than I, without the assistance of PROZAC, self/professional help groups, or those damn listen while you drive Books on iTUNES things? Reminds of something I heard George Carlin say in a stand-up once when referring to the past 40 years. The boomers, their political correctness and their hypersensitivity to everything…”the pussification of America”

So it should be safe to assume that Terri Williams will be advancing a postulate that depression is either, misdiagnosed, under-diagnosed, under-treated, and overlooked (because blacks don’t acknowledge their own shortcomings or seek proper medical care: stereotypes I will be addressing in the next film)..Whew, somebody read this thing, I don’t think I have another neuron I can commit to this kind of stuff.

Black and Blue: Depression Among African-Americans

Black Pain by Terrie M. Williams
Posted January 16, 2008

Depression knows nothing of skin color, yet cultural influences shape how people of different races deal with the illness. So says Terrie M. Williams, author of Black Pain: It Just Looks Like We’re Not Hurting, which arrived in bookstores this month. Williams, an African-American, is a social worker by training and a public relations professional by trade—and has herself battled depression.  (story continues here)

The list of endorsers behind this book:

– Tavis Smiley, Author, Television Personality and Radio Host
– Alvin F. Poussaint, MD, Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
– Danny Glover, Actor/Activist
– Sean “Diddy” Combs
– Charles Ogletree
– Patti LaBelle
– Rev. Al Sharpton
– Jamie Hector, actor, The Wire
– Bishop T.D. Jakes, Senior Pastor, The Potter’s House
– Zane, NY Times Bestselling Author of Addicted and NAACP Image Award Winner for Breaking the Cycle

So tell me how high my eyebrow is raised, without reading a single page…
