This morning on the Tom Joyner Morning Show, there was a discussion about the health status of Jesse Jackson Jr. The guest that was on the show suggested that his health condition was nothing more than depression.She went on to say that as African Americans in this country, we have been taught to believe that we are less than and carry this with us throughout life, not realizing that depression causes a number of health issues from high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks and many other health problems.

She mentioned that depression within African-Americans is another reason why we see so much violence in our community! Those suffering from depression never seek out the help to deal with their depression because again we have been taught not to talk openly about certain personal issues and concerns!
