This article from CNN.com has me so so emotional. We’ve got to solve this!

Millions of Americans shrugged off their fear of the coronavirus this holiday weekend when they flocked to crowded beaches, lakes and restaurants. But there is another type of contagion that still keeps some of White America paralyzed: Fear of black men in public spaces.

Why this fear of black men persists

CNN writer, John Blake explains, “This fear of black men doesn’t just spring from racism. It’s psychological. There is a body of work in literature and psychology that speaks to a historical tradition where some white people — white men, in particular — project the primal aggressions that they refuse to see in themselves onto black people.” (Source CNN.com)

Johnson & Johnson to Stop Selling Talc-Based Baby Powder in US & Canada

FAIRLESS HILLS, Pa. (AP) — Johnson & Johnson is ending sales of its iconic talc-based Johnson’s Baby Powder in the U.S. and Canada, where demand has dwindled amid thousands of lawsuits claiming it has caused cancer.

Although, the world’s biggest maker of health care products said Tuesday the talc-based powder will still be sold outside the U.S. and Canada.

J&J faces about 19,400 cases alleging its talcum powder caused users to develop ovarian cancer and so far have had 12 wins, 15 losses and seven mistrials.

According to Black America Web, “All of the losses have either been overturned on appeal or are still being appealed.” Johnson and Johnson has always maintained that their talc baby powder is safe and doesn’t cause cancer.
