It was written...the very religion most blacks seek to free themselves creates bondage on themselves. The curse is handed down through passage, enacted by action, forever judged for childish mistakes...

You should finish your sentence.

Do you think that if it was the same exact pictures with tats and a rag on his head, but the kid was white, people would feel any different?

I think that they should go based on:

1) Who is most compatible with the organ and would best maintain the organ with proper regime.
2) Who is in most need of the organ.

Even if the person is going to die tomorrow, I would not give them the organ unless I was damn sure that they would live a lifestyle that would sustain the organ as long as possible.


To those who think his grades matter:

Do you realize that most successful people aren't the ones with the best grades in school, and the people with a criminal record aren't the only criminals.

Yeah, but don't think that someone can't change for the better.

I am a PRIME EXAMPLE of negative to positive. But I also had alot of support too. So...
Thats whats wrong with alot of these kids. Too many people dont care.

I understand why they need criteria in place, because there are a limited number of organs for transplant and they want them to go to people who will follow through with treatment, but it's just hard not to wonder if they would overlook this stuff if he wasn't a young black man.

That's crazy, at 15 they wrote his life off as not worth it. While the odds are against him, many, if not most of the most successful black men in our history have come from the wrong side of the law. Malcolm would be the obvious example--the streets came to teach him that there was more to life and he went on to success. I'm not saying that this kid is the next Malcolm X, I'm not even saying he's the next Joe Brown, but history has shown that people can evolve.
But you have to understand we don't have an endless list of organs... So you have to be as close to sure as you can on whether the recipient of the rare organ will actually take care of it and do what it takes to sustain his life... Thats like giving a lung transplant to a chronic smoker who has no plans to stop smoking... Why risk wasting an organ on somebody who will just destroy it... You can use it for somebody who will not destroy and use it properly...

If you really think they're not allowing him to be on the transplant list because he's black, and has trouble with the law you're straight up retarded

His own family is the reason he can't be on the list due to a history of "non-compliance", they didn't take his condition seriously until now that it's too late and now they want to play victim.

Learn to fu*king read sheep.

Sounds about right.

Sounds like he wasn't going to his appointments or taking the medications that they were prescribing to him as faithfully as he should have been. Basically not taking the situation seriously until sh*t got real.

But then you gotta look at the fact that he's a 15 year old knucklehead, therefore his mother should be the one who's a.ssuming the responsible adult role and making sure these things happen.

But it seems like her life is in less order than his

Of course the logical question for the hospital now becomes, if yall weren't taking this life and death situation seriously enough to find a way to get down here before, what specifically is gonna change now?

And if it was so "impossible" to get down here before, how you gon get down here on a regular basis now?

Or maybe y'all could have been finding a way down here before but were choosing not to put in the extra effort.

Gotta be frustrating for them at the hospital when they gotta put somebody on the list who hasn't shown serious concern for their own well being over somebody who has been doing all the right things (going to appointments, taking their meds etc)

this is typical people not reading the article and NO PROOF that they arent giving him the transplant because of race, his past, or anything else. this is what his family thinks. not to mention his mom clearly said she doesnt have a car and would not be able to get him to the treatments. just off that alone would you hire someone that didnt have a car and lived a half hour away or a person with a car that lived a half hour away? back to the point. where in this article does it say the hospital told them he isnt getting a transplant because of his past? NO WHERE!!! again im not heartless but who gives a sh!t about this kid? why is this even an article? there are tons of people waiting for transplants not getting them and dying? why is he so special? Oh thats right because hes black and the media loves hoping on stories like this to divide us. smarten up people open your eyes and read ALL THE INFORMATION provided and dont just hop on the race bandwagon. im sure 100000 black/white people have died because they couldnt get their transplant. why havent we heard about them? why do we only hear about the 15 yr old black kid? because people will jump all over this like the 6 pages of BS we have here

Y'all are tripping. No one has the right to an organ transplant. People are denied every year, because they do not meet the criteria. He was not denied because he is black. You all are acting like no young black men have been given organs. If this sh*t was a regular occurrence in a city with this many black people it would be publicized more. They did not sentence him to death, they just chose not to invest in the gamble of attempting to save his life. Y'all talking that sh*t now, but if he got that organ and tricked it off while your loved one died waiting at the top of the transplant list you'd start bi*ching.
