Why black Americans can’t sleep at night: racism

It is painfully obvious that some forms of unequal treatment due to race are immediately deadly. But new research shows that other forms of racial discrimination are more perniciously harmful and dangerous to an individual’s health on a daily basis.

Recent research has shown that unequal treatment of black people by civilians in daily life, also known as everyday discrimination, affects biology in ways that have small but cumulative negative effects.

Discrimination affects biological processes such as stress hormones and sleep, which are important for health and daily performance…

    “…everyday discrimination, affects biology in ways that have small but cumulative negative effects.”

    Obviously, this is only true of non-whites and libtards.
    We conservative white folk face discrimination every day, not to mention being called racists, haters, bitter clingers, homophobes, islamophobes and killers.

    They hypocrisy of the left knows no bounds.

      You forgot to mention that on top, we have to pay for it.

    I suppose the category-name ‘white goods’ will have to be banned.

    • Just a thought

      …and soon after, “white goods” as well.

        I’m sure we’d be given time to paint our fridges and washing machines black.

      Mine is silver what does that mean?

        You are in deep denial and you don’t go for originality. You go with the flow. Most toasters are “silver”

          I won mine in a radio contest back in 2000, so it’s 15 years old and still going strong; my microwave is black does that count for something?

            You are diversified. John Tory, the NDP and Justin Trudeau may use you as a poster boy/girl 🙂

          • Exile1981

            Can I stuff the NDP and Turd in the microwave and call it even?

    Yesterday I went shopping at a Sports Authority store. I then carried my bag into an adjacent Target store. I couldn’t find what I wanted, so bypassed the checkout cash while leaving, and was stopped by a security guard. Somewhat humiliated I showed the bill from Sports Authority.

    I guarantee that if I was Black, I would have thought I was mistrusted because of my skin color. This would have become an instance of “perceived racism”.

    The article makes a huge jump from “perceived racism” to actual “discrimination”. When a mistake like this is made, it betrays the agenda of the writer/researcher.

    When writers and researchers have an agenda, they disguise their work as science, while cherry-picking only the data that supports their pre-existing bias.

      Black people sleep less than white people, on average by just over a half hour per night …

      BAD SCIENCE indeed. I’d love to see the raw data.

      Perhaps, on average, black Americans sleep more during the day.

  • BillyHW

    Maybe they can’t sleep because of al the gunfire?

  • Alain

    There is just no time to sleep when you are looking for stores to loot, whites to assault and other blacks to kill.

  • ntt1

    could it be that the sleep disturbance is from constant small arms fire , swatting and poorly aimed rounds punching through the gyp-rok?
