About Dr. Rex

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!

  1. Without wanting to diminish the problem (do I say that right?) with the questions I heard/saw I would have been one step in front of that woman in the back. Either I have the wrong skin color or it is not just “white privilege” but more “upper class privilege”
    I can understand it is seen as “white privilege” though realizing more white then colored are in this “upper class”
    As “white, (former) homeless adopted unemployed hippie I am no better off then many of my “colored” fellow human beings. And I know this to be the truth for many people regardless of color.

    There is just one race, it is called the human race, skin color is just a matter of melamine amounts. I so wish all these racially focused people would see that I am so glad we don’t have this problem you and I and that we see each other as two human beings thtat happen to have a different ancestry but are equal in every other way except gender 😀

    Love ya hun, Will try to get back to FB and blogging soon, really miss our chats but I am so frigging busy with things that I rather am not busy with but have no choice in 😦

    Always your friend

    • Hi, my dearest friend!! Quite the surprise to see you here!! My heart is very happy … don’t you worry, I know that you have many things to deal with.
      Friendship is real when you haven’t seen or talked to each other for a while and when you do, it seems as if it was yesterday. Wishing you the best always …..
      You have written all your thoughts perfectly.
      You are so correct … there should be no difference. We all are humans. That’s we the problem lies … we have forgotten that we all are one!! Hugs, real tight hugs for you and L!!! ❤ …. friends for life!!!
