Prof ties black female obesity to Trump policies, racism
Campus Reform ^ | October 15, 2019 | Jonathan McCormick

Posted on 10/15/2019 2:21:23 PM PDT by Zakeet

A New Jersey professor suggested on a TV program that racism and President Donald Trump’s policies are responsible for black female obesity.

Rutgers University women’s and gender studies professor Brittney Cooper made the argument during an appearance on “Black Women OWN the Conversation” on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

"I hate when people talk about Black women being obese," Cooper said on the program. "I hate it because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create."

"We are living in the Trump era," the professor said. "And look, those policies kill our people. You can't get access to good health care, good insurance."

Cooper said that research points to black women losing less weight and at a slower rate than do white women, claiming that public health practitioners tie increased stress to a change in metabolism.

"It's literally that the racism that you're experiencing and the struggle to make ends meet actually means the diet don't [sic] work for you the same," she adds.

Now that I think about it - There were never any big African-American women before Trump.

Always confront them with the ‘behavior’ argument ... that’s the crux of the issue

Yeah and even if she lost 80 pounds she’d still be ugly.

At least pretty fat women and handsome fat men are worth saving :)

She ain’t that.

Are they not responsible for their own bodies?! If President Trump can make them obese.... what way can't he do?!

Academic fraud.

They are insane.

Every time you think they cannot sink any lower, they do.

Pathetic.

But sane people should see through this.
