    Default Are racial microaggressions making you fat?

    A study by Rutgers University – Newark claims that minorities are obese because racial microaggressions cause them to eat fast food and avoid exercise.

    “When you are exposed to negative stereotypes, you may gravitate more toward unhealthy foods as opposed to healthy foods,” said Luis Rivera, the experimental social psychologist who conducted the study.

    “You may have a less positive attitude toward watching your carbs or cutting back on fast food, and toward working out and exercising,” he explained.

    Rivera said Hispanics who believed negative stereotypes about themselves were three times more likely to be overweight or obese — evidence that the obesity comes from believing the stereotypes.

    Sure. It's not your fault you ate that fucking supersize double quarter pounder bacon cheeseburger with a milk shake.

    It's because of negative racial stereotypes of course!

    Please don't tell me that my tax dollars helped fund that stupid fucking study.

    Eating too much is the man cause of obesity. Anyone see Icky Woods in that commercial ? Good lord he must have gained 150lbs since his playing days.

    Awesome!

    I was overweight little over a year ago, so I stopped smoking, drinking Mt Dew everyday and started jogging (which was a blast after ten years of smoking), knocked out the fast food too...... and all this time I was overcoming race issues LOL

    I doubt it, I'm pretty sure I'm not one of the listed minorities, so much for my Cinderella story!

    Many poor minorities seemingly have no problem playing up the stereotypes.

    Just more excuses for the failures of some in the inner city communities. Created by the left most likely.
