Black Lives Matter is a movement that focuses on young Black men who lose their lives at the hands of police.
In 2018 three-hundred-eleven Blacks lost their lives to police.
BLM activists would have you believe that traditional, "White" culture is the biggest threat to the lives of Black men. They could not be more wrong.
Traditional, Western (i.e. "White") culture places a high premium on getting married and staying married. The Progressive "War on Poverty" culture actively discourages marriage.
Married men have lower mortality rates. How much lower? In men between the ages of 19-and-45, married men have mortality rates that are half the rate of men who have never been married. HALF.
In the age group between 44-and-66, married men have a mortality rate that is approximately 60% of men who have never been married. Source.
Suppose we have two populations of twenty-one million men. Why twenty-one million? Because there are twenty-one million Black men in America.
Suppose one population marries and the other does not. What do their mortality curves look like.
|Two otherwise identical populations of American males with an initial cohort size of 275,000 at birth. The blue line is the difference between the "most married at some time" and "never married" mortality rates.|
Rolling all the cohorts into an aggregate-population number shows the increased mortality of the "Never Married" results in a population that is 1.2 million lower than the "Married at some time". Note that these missing men are all of voting age, that is, over age 18. That 1.2 million men who died before their time DWARFS the +300 a year killed by police.
Does this look infected?
World's worst pickup line or legitimate question?
The data for the 19-44 age group shows that the "Never married" group has a mortality rate due to infections that is 9.1 times the "Married" group.
The "Never married" group has a mortality rate due to "Other" that is 2.7 times that of "Married"
The "Never married" group has a mortality rate due to "Pulmonary" and "Homicide, suicide, accident" that is 2.4 times that of "Married".
The "Pulmonary" cause of death being high was a bit of a surprise but then Mrs ERJ suggested that it has been her experience that most men are less likely to vacuum the carpet, dust horizontal surfaces and put away food/trash to keep cockroach/mice populations down. Cockroach dander is a major cause of asthma attacks.
The Western "White" family model of parents being married (to each other) is likely to reduce mortality in sub-populations where marriage is a novelty.
The potential reduction in mortality DWARFS the numbers of Black Americans killed by police every year. Every year, the ten cohorts between ages 56 and 65 average 1100 more deaths for the Never Married vs Married. That is, each cohort has three times more deaths due to Never Married then the entire population suffers at the hands of the police.
In case multiplication does not come easily to you, looking at JUST the ten-year group from 56-65, being married would save THIRTY times more lives than BLM's wildest fantasy of ZERO Black men killed by the police. And that is just one set of ten cohorts.
Great analysis. And that's just one aspect of life . . . .ReplyDelete
Thanks, ERJ, that is a great analysis. This type of writing is what brings me back here all the time. You look at things so much different than I do.ReplyDelete
One even finer piece of investigative blogging would be to show the differences among never married, once married, twice married...and the til death do us part sacrimentally married.(you know, like swans?)
Thank you for investing the time and talent to provide all this good information. PEACE.
Wow, loads of family related stats I didn't know.
HIV/AIDS cannot be cured through drugs and injections,but the best way to get rid of HIV/AIDS permanently is by taking natural herbal medicine for it,and If getting HIV cure through drugs and injections was that easy then why do a lot of people still suffer from HIV?. i was diagnosed of HIV back in 2015 and i was also told it has no cure, i have been leaving with it since then, but i keep praying and doing everything possible to get cured, but i never stopped doing my research about finding a cure, till i came across testimonies about people getting cured through herbal medication, and i have always believe in herbs and its medical properties, after doing so many research about it i found out,Dr. James was the one who cured them and i discovered he was a professional in herbal medication and he has also helped and cured many HIV/AIDS patients, i contacted him, we talked on phone and i confirmed he was genuine herbalist Doctor, i did all he told me to do, after 2 days of contacting him,He told me the cure is ready and he sent it to me through FEDEX Express courier service ,The medicine got to me in 3 days time, . I used the herbal medicine as he prescribed it for me, after taking his powerful herbal mix medicine morning and night for 21 days I was completely cured now, I went back to my doctor to confirm it. Do not be deceived THERE IS A CURE FOR HIV/AIDS, doctors might tell you there is no cure but WITH HERBAL MEDICATION THERE IS A CURE and if you need to know or get cured from HIV or others disease such as Herpes virus, Cancer,Hiv/Aids,.Parkinson's disease,Schizophrenia,Lung Cancer,Breast Cancer,Colo-Rectal Cancer,Blood Cancer,Prostate Cancer ,Epilepsy Dupuytren's disease, Diabetes ,Cardiac disease, Ataxia,Arthritis,Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis,Fibromyalgia,Fluoroquinolone ToxicityReplyDelete
