The Castration Of Baby Ashton: How Did A Routine Circumcision Turned Into An Exceptionally Hellish Nightmare Experience For Mother & Child???

"You try to be the best mom you can be, but it's like the attack of the enemies is always there...I feel like I failed my son." ~Sis. Maggie Rhodes, the mother of Baby Ashton

“Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Bro. Ron aka r2c2h2 tha artivist says:
Many Black people do not like going to the doctor in particular for cultural reasons not to mention the good reason provided by this tragic tale...Many feel that some White or other ethnic doctors are not emotionally invested or concerned about them as individuals let alone their health status…Then some Black folks do not trust doctors based on what has historically happened to Blacks in America all in the supposed name of science and progress at the hands of white physicians…Tragic episodes such as the Tuskegee Experiment, the exploitation of Henrietta Lacks’ DNA without her consent at John Hopkins University and the troubling legacy of Dr. J. Marion Sims aka ‘The Father of Gynecology’ who performed horrific and sadistic experiments on enslaved African women without anesthesia are considered by many as good and valid reasons not to...Whether this is a fair assessment of the current situation or not is dependent on the individual and their personal experiences respectively but I can personally attest that hospitals can seem like cold and unforgiving spaces especially if one feels that their physician lacks respect and compassion for their well being…

With that said I am very disturbed by the tragic story of Baby Ashton...Black manhood it seems is under attack from birth in this system of white supremacy and this heinous act, whether intentional at first or not, proves it thoroughly (the cover-up is as equally as devastating as 'the crime')...The effeminization and emasculation of the Black man is in progress and people need to stop acting like they are not aware of it...The fact that the doctor(s) in question would let this Black baby suffer in writhing unimaginable pain without anesthesia and not inform his mother of the horrendous injury shows the lack of respect or concern for Black life in this racist paradigm...Black folks must learn that no one has their best interests at heart when they do not make their own self-interest and survival a priority...A people that cannot protect their kids, is a people that won't last long let alone thrive...Black people cannot continue or afford to leave their healthcare in the hands of those who have built their institutions, wealth and careers off of historically and presently exploiting their individual and collective misery and pain for a profit that does not benefit the aforementioned in neither the short or long term...There is no secret or 'conspiracy theory' that the powers that be are developing sinister ways of systemically eliminating Black people from the planet both covertly as well as overtly...Black people cannot afford to be silent on this issue...The very existence of the Black race depends on the many or a dedicated few in the diaspora organizing solutions and alternatives which clearly demand that Black life is not only 'tolerated' but also protected and respected...

Ms. Maggie Rhodes, whose daughter just had open heart surgery last month, is currently unemployed after losing two jobs just to take care of her very sick children...She recently had to drive 2 and a half hours to her hometown of Greenville, MS, just to seek emergency medical attention for her son, Baby Ashton, who recently suffered an inflamed leg infection which is due from the botched circumcision/penectomy he endured this past summer at Christ Community Health Center on 2861 Broad Avenue in Memphis, TN...The reason she had to drive back to her hometown was because she has been refused service by several  hospitals in the Memphis area where she currently resides...One can almost conclude that because of her son's tragic situation that she has been blackballed and barred by certain entities or interests within the Memphis medical community from receiving essential healthcare services for her children, seemingly provoking a reactionary blame the victim mentality if you will...In a town that is renowned worldwide for its children hospitals, Le Bonheur Children's Hospital & St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, this is more than just irony but a true insult and disgrace...

However, to paraphrase the great Frederick Douglass, power concedes nothing without a demand and so now we all who are of good character and compassion must come together to demand that justice be done in the case of Baby Ashton...Yes even this unfortunate story can still have a happy ending...lease share the story with your networks ad beyond...Also please read below to find out how you can help assist Sis. Maggie Rhodes in getting justice for Baby Ashton...The Best Is Yet To Come!!!

***Updated Note: I have researched and know that there is a difference between a castration (the removal of the male testicles) and a penectomy (the removal of the penis) the latter of which Baby Ashton got...However, in this case or context I consider 'castration' to be a useful term because the doctors involved cut away a piece of Baby Ashton's identity and manhood...Also some people who may feel concerned about the identity of the mother and baby being exposed must look at the traditional media outlets for doing so at first...They originally ran pictures as well as interviewed the mother on camera along with her holding the baby...I actually feel that it was necessary to show the identity of both mother and child due to the uniqueness and horrible nature of the case...As it has been laid out in the article Sis. Maggie Rhodes has experienced many hardships due to the unfortunate incident concerning her son...W.E. A.L.L. B.E. will keep the masses updated on the story as it develops...***
