Good Health for African American Kids (cont.)

Dixon: I can tell you personally, I'm just a black female in an office.. and I went to a dermatologist for a skin condition, and I was talked to like a 2 year old. I resented that. The assumption that we don't care about our health, and that we don't want to know, and that we don't want to do anything is completely false.

Dixon: A fitting way to end this is on a positive note, that through these kinds of mediums, interviews like this bringing attention to the health issues that affect African-American is extremely crucial. I appreciate the opportunity to be able to take part. As we understand our differences, so we all can help each other.
