African American adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17 are far more likely to be coerced into going to community mental health centers where they are placed on mind altering drugs, major tranquilizers. And they are given higher dosages than white people. ( at age 17 my son, Siddharta was given his first psychiatric drug...the maximum adult adult dosage, 1200% higher than the recommended dose for his age...           during the next year he began his first self-harming acts, including giving himself  3rd degree burns, and wanting to jump out of a second story window)...The diagnosis of African American men as having schizophrenia, by public and private institutions, is
15 times as high
as whites.

Exploitation of Minorities
Psychiatry is built on a foundation of prejudice against minorities, particularly African Americans. In the 1700s, for instance, none less than the father of American psychiatry, Benjamin Rush, asserted that African Americans were black because they had a disease called Negritude, and that we should not tyrannize over them, but rather find a cure for this disease. In the l840s a new so-called mental illness was "discovered" - "Drapetomania"; it was what caused slaves to run away! In 1887, G. Stanley Hall, founder of the American Journal of Psychology and first president of the American Psychological Association, put forth the idea that Africans, Indians, and Chinese were members of "adolescent races" in a stage of "incomplete growth." Thus, these people's lack of equality was justified, because they were not fully adult. From these historical roots of racism, according to the CCHR's Jan Eastgate, all minority groups have become marked for psychiatric abuse:
"You have had a targeting of the African American community, the American Indians, Hispanic groups, as having a lower IQ than so-called whites. Based on this 'scientific' justification, psychiatrists have sterilized African Americans. By 1929, up to 6000 Californians were sterilized, and they were largely African Americans. If you look at the statistics now, psychiatrists involuntarily commit African Americans three to five times as often as they do whites. The diagnosis of African American men as having schizophrenia, by public and private institutions, is 15 times as high as whites. African American adolescents between the ages of 13 and 17 are far more likely to be coerced into going to community mental health centers where they are placed on mind altering drugs, major tranquilizers. And they are given higher dosages even than white people. So there's a concerted effort by psychiatry to target minority groups in this country by diagnosing them with spurious labels and then giving them mind-altering drugs and electric shock."

In Dr. Breggins's book The war on Children of Color he continues to follow the APA's agenda of
targeting children of color through a government document attained through the freedom of information act called "The Violence Initiative." Seems our government was funding psychiatric research on the African American Community determining early identification of a genetic tendency toward violence and and how to neutralize it. . One such major experiment was actually directed by an African American Psychiatrist. When this document was exposed to the African American Communities, they demanded an end to such atrocities that were committed on our inner city children and the psychiatric community retreated---at least on the surface.

Today, not only  inner city and children of color, are targets, but through the DSM IV and Mental Health Screening massive experiments of social control are being conducted on millions of children through drugging  in the name of  "treating"  children who are labeled with "broken brains." aka mental illnesses.
