We do not live in the real world when liberals rule, except for the world exploding around us due to Democrat weak leaders.

Since black women are told from birth they are victims of racism then I bet that at least 99% of all black women polled would report that they have been victims of multiple instances of racism. Thus, you could corrolate ANY phenomenon regarding black women to racism. What a totally bogus study.

Yeah, racism. I guess that’s why all those white folks in Appalachia, Arkansas and Oklahoma are obese, too.

The “study” cited is obviously picking up on “poverty” (such as it is in the U.S. where, homeless madmen aside, our “poor” are pretty much all what in global terms is middle class, and in world-historical terms would be moderately rich).

In poor countries the poor are thin and the rich are fat, in rich countries the rich are thin and the poor are fat.

Correlation does not equate to causation.

This useful idiot “reporter” probably knows that, but is hoping you don’t. That way the propaganda and the push to take your money at the point of a gun to fund further such “research,” and to correct the “cause” of this grave health concern with further oppressive regulations, will meet less resistance.

To not be able to see Mooch-elle’s huge posterior and to not suggest that Her Royal Hind-Ass get on a treadmill instead of a vacaton flight, is incredible.

There must be no mirrors anywhere in our White House if this large, overweight woman cannot see how hypocritical she is.

According to the CDC blacks and latinos have the highest ratio of people who are overweight or obese (also diabetes)per capita in their own group. Note: the government groups people by race/ethnicity for these statistics.

This has more to do with culture. Food is a big part of culture. In the same way that Southern people have higher incidence of overweightness, obesity etc ... because of the culture of food. In Asian cultures there are far fewer overweight or obese people per capita within that grouping, again due to their food culture.

Around the world there are some cultures who have lower rates of overweight and obesity than others. Their diets have been studied for years (for example, the Mediterranean diet)

The reason why this has to be found to be about racism is because under Obamacare, being overweight or obese is very soon going to be used as a marker to raise premium rates (like smokers pay now). There has to be a way to exclude certain minorities from these higher premiums.

Constantly playing the race card is... racist.
