    Not such a Social Construct

    Bone marrow donor disparities reveal reality of race once again

    Medical science and ethnic disparities in bone marrow donor registry lists have once again illustrated the reality of race as a biological concept, disproving leftist lies which claim it is a “social construct.”

    New reports which have focussed on the problems surrounding suitable matches for bone marrow transplant patients have inadvertently revealed why race does exist, and why it matters for humanity’s sake.

    The statistics revealed that:

    - White British people have a 1 in 3 likelihood of finding a bone marrow transplant match.

    - Asian or black people living in Britain have a 1 in 125,000 likelihood of finding a bone marrow transplant match.

    - People of mixed race living in Britain have a 1 in 200,000 or more likelihood of finding a bone marrow transplant match.

    - There are 16.9 million people on the NHS Organ Donor Register. Of this number only 1.2 percent are Asian and 0.4 percent are black.

    - There are 7,800 patients currently waiting for a transplant, of whom 1,521 (19.5 percent) are Asian and 779 (9.98 percent) are black.

    The statistics are significant because they reveal that race is a major factor in determining biological diversity and those different racial groups have different attitudes towards social responsibility projects such as organ donation.

    Transplanted organs require the same blood and tissue type in order to prevent rejection by the body’s immune system.

    However, compared to organ transplants, bone marrow donations need to be even more genetically similar to their recipients.

    Since all the immune system's cells come from bone marrow, a transplant actually introduces a new immune system to a person. Without genetic similarity between the donor and the patient, the new white blood cells will attack the host body.

    In an organ transplant, the body can reject the organ, but with marrow, the new immune system can reject the whole body.
