Clutch Magazine presented a new study, which finds that black men are more likely to suffer from depression as they experience greater economic success. This is shocking news in a society that equates money with happiness. But it seems that not even greater wealth can magically erase the emotional harm caused by the increased exposure to racism that career growth can bring.

With more and more African American men losing their jobs, new research from the National Survey of American Life showing poor Black men at high risk for depression does not come as much of a shock. But what is raising many eyebrows is the survey’s other notable finding: affluent black men are at higher risk for depression than those on the other end of the income spectrum.

According to the recent survey, black males who earn $80,000 and more were more likely to report symptoms of depression than those who made $17,000 and below.

What can we do ensure that this trend does not continue?

Today I was flipping through one of my favorite magazines and this ad caught my attention. So I began to wonder what exactly was WELLS FARGO attempting to convey. Is it a son and father shopping or is it homosexual couple ? Please keep in mind the ad is about a joint checking account. I would love feedback.

Do you find this anti-abortion billboard offensive? Or is it a pro-life message that hits the mark?

 

THE MOST DANGEROUS PLACE FOR AN AFRICAN AMERICAN is THE WOMB

 

Please keep the following in mind:

Billboard placed in SoHo near one of three Planned Parenthood abortion clinics in New York City blared – “The most dangerous place for an African American is the womb.”

According to blackvoices.com, in a press release, Life Always explained that the billboard campaign is designed to raise public awareness of Planned Parenthood’s targeting of minority neighborhoods. It comes just weeks after the New York City Health Department released its annual Vital Statistics Report, which revealed a 41% abortion rate – nearly twice the national average.
