Allergies and Asthma are on the rise in African-American communities, nationwide. Sniff. Cough. Sneeze. Wipe. And if you live in a city like I do where the average pollen count on a spring day is 1200 or above, I bet you're doing all of the above...a lot! City or country dwellers, most Black people have seen springtime pollen cover outdoor objects with a pea green dust. While that type of pollen may not cause an allergic reaction, it does show how pervasive most pollen spores are, whether we can see them or not. Even if you're not a regular allergy sufferer, a high pollen count can make life miserable for a short period or for the whole season.
