Yes, a benefit that is afforded one group of people to the exclusion of another based on race, religion, gender, ethnicity, sexual-orientation, or disability is illegal discimination, and therefore oppression.

As I said in the other thread on the topic, Allen spent much of his time at HHS blocking HIV/AIDS prevention funding. He actively cut funding for condom distribution.

But the irony is his crime will put him in the, er, position to beg for condom distribution as he will, upon incarceration, no doubt become someone's jail house wife.

This is a side affect of the socio-economic, race issue that affects African-Americans. Not to mention the high amounts of processed or enhanced foods we eat. If just a few generations ago black people could live to be over 100 years old or well into their 80's and 90's without much medical care, there is an underlying issue. Because of medical problems I've been having recently, I think that its because of some of the foods we eat. For example, the high incidence of fibroids in black women.
