In the latest woke trend, obesity in the black community is now caused by racism. At least that’s the take in the video highlighted by the Daily Wire.
The man on the street interview checks on whether Americans agree. Answers were all over the map. Racism leads to depression that leads to bad food choices. Racism leads to lower income that leads to buying unhealthy food that leads to obesity which leads to racism.
The maddening circle doesn’t quite make sense in the real world though. Back when higher levels of racism have been prevelant in the U.S. and other nations, the mistreatment leads to lower incomes that leads to less food and therefore less obesity.
Obesity, up until recent times, was associated in medieval Europe as associate with wealth. If you had more money you had more food and could do less manual labor and ended up gaining weight. Sounds like a better explanation than the cries from the woke crowd, but hey, that’s probably racist too.
