Racism causes mental health issues for black people

Does America really need a clinical study to substantiate the fact that racism causes mental health disparities in Black men, women and children? Finding the answer for this question isn’t difficult. Just drive through any impoverished Black community and ask the residents are they stressed out because crime and drugs are rampant in their community, are they sick and can’t afford to go to the doctor, are they unemployed and living beneath the poverty level, and they will unequivocally tell you yes, and it’s because society discriminates against Black folks.
