Moleendo Stewart cant say for sure whats caused his lifelong sleeping problems. But he has his suspicions.
Theres the childhood spent in loud, restless neighborhoods in Miami. You hear people shooting guns all night, dealing drugs, said Mr. Stewart, 41, who lives in the East Flatbush section of Brooklyn. He also cites his weight, 260 pounds, down from a peak of 310.
(Excerpt) Read more at nytimes.com ...
He’ weighs 260 pounds and he’s blaming his sleep problems on his race.
It’s time to cut off all food aid to the poor in this country for 60 days.. Not another bite for them.
Tomorrow morning, the sun will rise in the East. It’s racism, I tell you: pure racism.
I’ve only read the excerpt, but if I was cursed with a name like Moleendo, I’d probably be up nights, too.
They need to ban sleep.
Race my arse.
Poverty/socio economic/urban vs. rural...yeah.
I'm assuming he's not built like an olympic diver, so he probably suffers from sleep apnea.
Duh, if this thread is about Sleep-Profiling, than somebody is going to get a nasty call from the feared Profile Police!
What a horrible country we live in. Yeah, having the benefit of affirmative action hiring and an endless menu of special programs and privileges awarded based upon skin color would keep me up nights too. Maybe they should count benefits instead of sheep.
“In one of two studies on the topic presented there, white participants from the Chicago area were found to get an average of 7.4 hours of sleep per night; Hispanics and Asians averaged 6.9 hours and blacks 6.8 hours.”
Well, well - the presstitute who wrote that New York Slimes ‘T*rd with no clean end’ conveniently forgot that both Hispanics and Asians got the same amount of sleep.
Next, Mr. Presstitute deliberately ignored the well know fact that Hispanics are at the lower end of most all parameters from degrees to percentage of violent criminals. But Mr. Presstitute ignores the fact that Asians sleep as do Hispanics yet vastly outperform them in nearly every area except crime.
Clearly, sleep is not the factor Mr. Presstitute claims. Bad Presstitute! Bad science, too! !
Give me a frikkin’ BREAK!
The Dream Police live inside of his head ...
This is funnier than hell! I looked for The Onion (or John Semmens) and then saw it was NYT — which only added to the mirth.
Tell you what, you SOBs (sons of barack) BETTER sleep with one eye open after what you did to US, voting 99% for Odingo!
I'd agree based on his weight and height.
The Sandman is rayciss.
Oh great! Now if I get a good nights sleep I’m a racist.
He’s complaining about growing up in nasty, deadly city diversity neighborhoods. Can’t blame him. A lot of people put on a lot of weight to hide themselves when traumatized as children and if I grew up in a hood of drug dealers gang thugs, I would be a tad neurotic, too. He ought not race bait whitey for it. He should give himself a better culture and environment.
So now it is “racist” to say “Good night, sleep tight?
White pillows must be the overwhelming cause.
Made of cotton filler
As you have pointed out, it has nothing to do with race and almost everything to do with environment.
Case in point -- people in Europe and India have a gene that allows them to digest milk. Mongols and Masai do have it as well (from the "Oriental" and "Black" racial stereotypical groups respectively) while Japanese don't have this.
Also, among Europeans too, there are different genetics at play between Nordics and Italians for instance.
Among blacks, those with West African heritage have different genetic issues compared to those with East African heritage
I think one of the reasons why the poor in this country are obese is due to what food they get (note: I’m saying what they “get” — sometimes it is their choice to spend on other things rather than quality food) — if you give them carbohydrates only they will be fat.

it's not "race" as in black v/s white but more to ethnic history.
Also, most "blacks" in this country have some or more "white" blood and vice-versa so that genetic map can go haywire
