  • How the sleep gap reflects inequality and contributes to it.

    A good night’s rest is critical for your health, and a lot can go wrong when you don’t get enough it. Sleep deprivation can contribute to obesity, diabetes, inflammation, heart disease, and more. The minimum recommended amount for adults is 7 hours (this too can vary from person to person). But, a third of Americans are sleep deprived — and on average, Black Americans are clocking in the least amount of z’s.

    Black Americans already face steep disparities in health, and not getting enough good sleep can compound on those issues. By examining the sleep gap, and addressing the root causes, we may be able to tackle other inequalities in the US too.

    Black people will never get any sleep and we'll always be servants as long as Europeans are controlling and dominating the world.

    Scientific racism exists sure, but to just pretend IQ isn't real or a factor is an extremely sad and pathetic cop-out on your part. I have to believe you can be better than that.

    That’s not a good way to approach things at all. I also believe this is a bit of a stretch, but at least watch the whole video first.

    That’s not okay. I don’t entirely agree with it either, but at least watch the video before giving an opinion on it.

    Why do people bring race into everything.

  • Pure Rosa

     (Aug 31, 2018)

    Because without race the only difference between us would be our personalities and no one cares about those anymore.
