I read an article today stating that SIDS is now a racial issue since statistics show that black infants die from SIDS at a higher percentage than white infants. That may well be statistically true, but how in the world can someone take the leap of calling it a racial issue? What does the color of ones skin have anything to do with the unexplainable death of an infant? The answer, plain and simple, is...nothing! Hear Daddy out for a moment...I am white, in good heath, do not smoke, eat well, etc., and all this applies to Mommy as well. We also have good jobs and educations so, statistically you should still be alive...right? However, you died anyway proving these (and all statistics) can be manipulated to say anything people want them to say when in reality these same people should just say nothing and stop piling on to the misery of living in the aftermath of having a child...my child...die. All their misinformation and data manipulation does is contribute to more infants dying because parents get, and often believe, the wrong messages.
Much love, little guy!
