Brittney Cooper: Trump’s Racism Has Made Black Women Fat

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

I have been highly critical of the Blompf presidency

I’m not sure that he can be blamed though for the obesity crisis that black women are facing which appears to be a decades long trend and a product of their own lifestyle choices. Unfortunately, some White people are buying into this nonsense to signal their wokeness.

Black women are getting fatter by the minute.

Nearly half of black women have heart disease and high blood pressure.


“(CNN) Across the US, obesity rates have risen and life expectancy has declined. Our national health crisis has been especially dire for African-American women. Nearly half have heart disease and 40% have high blood pressure, according to the American Heart Association. Their risk of stroke is almost twice that of white women, reports the CDC. They are more likely to die at a younger age than women of other ethnicities, the heart association said.”

The culprit is cheap food and free food in the case of EBT, not stress caused by White racism. White women and Hispanic women are also getting fat because dietary and exercise patterns have recently changed due to fast food, supermarkets and travel by automobile. While this negative trend is affecting all races, non-black women are making more intelligent choices.


“If we want to solve the obesity problem, we have to figure out what has changed for everybody,” Sturm said. “And the thing that pops out is our food environment. That’s where the action is. And it’s not just that food is now cheap relative to income it’s also that it’s so much more convenient.” …

In the 1930s, Americans spent a quarter of their disposable income on food. The most recent data show that share is now under one-tenth

And while cheap, convenient food is a good thing, our biology and our social norms haven’t caught up with the abundance. Foods that can be mass-produced and aren’t perishable like potato chips, candy and sugar-sweetened drinks are prime culprits. …

“This study attributes obesity to only one cause: low food prices.It does not discuss relentless marketing of cheap ‘junk’ foods, nor does it discuss Consumer Price Index data on the relative cost of foods,” she said, noting that the cost of fruits and vegetables has gone up more than the average food cost.

“The higher prevalence of obesity among people of lower income and education can be explained by greater consumption of low-cost, high-calorie foods.”

This has nothing to do with racism.

Black women weren’t this fat under slavery or Jim Crow. When the ancestors of modern black women were picking cotton, it wasn’t possible to be this fat and idle.

Note: Mammy was fat because she was a house slave.
