An 11-year-old who starred on Broadway in The Lion King and whose battle with leukaemia won the hearts of many, including Alicia Keys, Rihanna and 50 Cent, has died.
Shannon Tavarez died on Monday in hospital in New York.
Shannon, who played the young lion Nala, had received an umbilical-cord blood transplant in August. The procedure was performed as an alternative to a bone marrow transplant after doctors said that a perfect bone marrow match could not be found.
The search was difficult because Shannon’s mother is African-American and her father is from the Dominican Republic.
I might add, a sicklier caste system.
The Mestizos STILL have not fully recovered from being the human product of the Colombian exchange. They are still suffering from the awful effects. They not only have a high prevalence of ankylosing spondylitis, but celiac disease and diabetes.
Hybrid vigor is a myth, especially where humans are concerned. Shannon Tavarez, the child star of the Lion King Broadway production ended up dying of leukemia, because though she looked black, there was enough of a mestizo mix that no matching bone marrow could be found for her. She was only eleven years old.
Any White who produces mixed-race offspring not only consigns them to a lower caste, but jeopardizes their chances at living to a ripe, healthy old age much less than surviving at all if it comes to finding a matching bone marrow or organ transplant.
Shannon Tavarez exposes the lies of Franz Boas and his followers that race is only a social construct when it is clear that the human being, just like the feline and the canine, make up many distinct species.
If biological racial differences, at least, were studied and reported honestly, then all races could engage in their own eugenics programs to improve the lives of their offspring. It looks increasingly like a ploy to eliminate any competition to their own young when they not only cynically discourage eugenics for “the lower orders” but actively encourage something as downright destructive as race-mixing.
