Herman Caine’s Passing Should Be A Lesson To Black Skeptics…

It is remark­able when com­mon sense is shunt­ed to the side in order to make way for the absur­di­ty of ridicu­lous polit­i­cal the­ater.
But such is the time in which we now live, truth and hon­esty are vices to be shunned. Lies and dis­tor­tions trea­sured arti­facts.
Such was the case when Herman Caine, mis­ter 999 flat tax, sin­gle-issue for­mer Republican pres­i­den­tial can­di­date decid­ed to fol­low the Trump cam­paign of deceit and lies, by attend­ing Trump’s dis­as­trous June 20th ral­ly in Tulsa.
Eight mem­bers of Trump’s advance team test­ed pos­i­tive for the coro­n­avirus and his cam­paign staff had to self-iso­late after­ward in case of infec­tion.

Death is the great equal­iz­er, no one can claim vic­to­ry at the death of anoth­er, we are all sched­uled to die.
However, Herman Caine made a con­scious deci­sion to engage in that the­ater of the absurd, and it cost him the most pre­cious gift he was giv­en, his life.
I will not ven­ture to sug­gest that had he stayed home he would have been alive today, I believe our per­son­al­i­ty traits, the things we believe and engage in are all parts of what will ulti­mate­ly lead to how we leave this world.
Nevertheless, his pass­ing ought to be a warn­ing to the skep­tics who would dis­card the con­clu­sive find­ings of sci­ence on the altar of the inane and retard­ed.

This virus has killed hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple around the world and sick­ened mil­lions. This is no ordi­nary flu as some would have you believe.
Even though the peo­ple we put our trust in, in the sci­en­tif­ic com­mu­ni­ty may not deserve most of it, still, we must respect the sci­ence and heed the warn­ings.
Black peo­ple in par­tic­u­lar, with our com­pro­mised immune sys­tems have a duty to exer­cise care.
When we fail to exer­cise care, the results are usu­al­ly swift and clear.
