Transgenerational Epigenetics is a new field of science, about 15 years old, that examines how cataclysmic occurrences can alter a portion of the gene, and how that altered expression is passed down generationally. Due to the transgenerational epigenetic injury – the forced removal from Africa, a slave diet that consisted largely of cornmeal and fat, and 500 years of terror – Black people are highly susceptible to develop, at some point in their lifetimes, major diseases and life-challenging illnesses than other ethnic groups in America. This is what this science has revealed. Black people, people of African descent, are not the same as everyone else in Chicago or in America. The COVID 19 death-rate is just the latest metric to demonstrate this. It also offers the latest proof that targeted resources for this community are a must. Those resources are called reparations. It is what is owed, what is due and what is just.
