Your Voice: Now that the enrollment window for Obamacare has closed, did you apply and do you think African Americans will approach their healthcare differently?
Kevon Graham, Riverdale: “I didn’t sign up, because I already have decent healthcare. I think, typically, as black folks, we are scared to go to doctors. I think we prefer home remedies. But [ACA] may cause people to get the right medical help that they need.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Delreka Humphries, Hampton: “I did not sign up for Obamacare, because I already have health insurance [via] my parents. The way that it’s going to affect black people is that a lot of people that didn’t [sign up] are unaware about the issue [and] they are still going to suffer from the fact that they don’t know about it.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
Sarah Stevens, Fayetteville: “I did not partake in it, because I have insurance through the company I work for. As far as how it would affect African Americans, I hope that it would insure that each [person] would have the possibility of having healthcare.” Photo by Vincent Christie.
