Black Male Suicide: Wacka Flocka's brother Kayo Redd dead due to Apparent Suicide

Notable suicides include Don Cornelius and Actor Lee Thompson young, Junior Seau. Chris Lighty. Jovan Belcher.



According to the American Association of Suicidology, in 2005, 1,992 suicides were completed by African-Americans and that suicide was the third leading cause of death among African-American youth.  The Centers for Disease Control reported that between 1999 and 2004, young African-American males had the highest rate of suicide.  This latter finding is consistent with research that males are more likely to complete suicides whereas females are more likely to attempt suicide.
