After the events of 2020, we are no strangers to stress and anxiety. But for Black and brown Americans, that stress was nothing new. Racial health gaps have always existed, and socioeconomics and racism within the medical system have long kept equal healthcare out of reach. But what kind of toll does the experience of racism itself have on your body? Glad You Asked host Christophe Haubursin wants to know.

The problem with our society is white women constantly complaining about discrimination despite effectively having all the same powers and perks of white men. We spend more effort collectively appeasing their demands which is energy that could be spent improving racial disparity. White women are the most outspoken yet privileged people in our society.

Hmm..hmm 😒 lets think about it 😒 hmmm. Is the grass green. Yes yes it is. Does it die when you don't nurture it the correct way. Is racism correct? 😒 lets think about this one. How many seconds Did IT TAKE YOU TO FIGURE IT OUT? Multiply by 10. That's how many years you've been a racist.

In order for humanity to advance quickly, humans must be very decisive on shaving people with bad genes with lethal injections, the list of people who hold back humanity: 1) extremely violent people, especially to elders 2) convicted murderers 3) rapists and pedophiles 4) convicted drugs trafficking Just by getting rid of these people, globally humanity generates huge surplus of resources which can be allocated into helping talents and supporting both genetics and space explorations. Globally elites must lead decisively for the sake of humanity. It's no magic that China has advanced quickly, their society holds 0 tolerance to murderers and drug trafficking. The world is getting overcrowded with limited resources which has caused conflicts and global issues. Simplify from the aspects of good genes contribution then humanity will naturally advance quicker.

You can speak like this to get some understanding about racism. But the solution is to change the social order. For that you need to study the history of the Black Panther Party. They were the one's who offered a permanent solution instead of minor reforms.

This is a great series that my middle school aged daughter and I have appreciated. But I have to say I'm concerned about the consistent lack of social distancing and mask-wearing across the series. Especially during in-person interviews. Vox has an opportunity to demonstrate following CDC guidelines.

Even between the vox staffers themselves. There's something unreal about these interactions that makes the whole show seem inauthentic and robotic.

7:45 Well, I'm fully Asian in the USA, so I can't pass as white at all. I wonder if Asians would be treated differently when they walk into a hospital. My parents have had their bad experiences with the hospitals, and the doctors appear very ineffective. Maybe the hospital reserves the best doctors for whites and the medical trainees for non-whites?

These episodes are so important. I love seeing them and what they uncover and the process it takes for them to uncover. I love seeing the different organizations too. Black Men Heal made me cry. It’s important to feel validated. As a Puerto Rican woman, no one knows our history and our oppression. I’m constantly being explained by white people how I’ve made it because I took loans and got an education. My oppression is constantly not validated by white people because I’m white passing. Thank you for showing the realities of this. I can’t wait to see more.

I learned a new phrase on here, "privileged ignorance". This definitely applies to white people who deny anything that minorities say is true - even coming from a few of my own white friends, who have difficulty seeing viewing life outside of their own shoes. They never had to consider "what they don't know what they don't know".

I'm really glad you all made this video. This is an area that I wish was discussed more because it shows the true face of institutional racism in this country. As a medical student about to start my rotations, it's become more and more clear to me that race is a definite contributor to biases and mismanagement of diseases in people of color. More disheartening, it's seeing how racism makes building trust between people of color much harder. On a personal level, reading more about medical racism helped me start the journey of realizing that we still have racism in this country that needs to be dealt with.

Not surprised... but this should be at the top of the agenda. Because I am sure you could expand this to the rest of the world too, whenever people from different places come into contact and one is white, or also regarding another color or ethnicity that places itself above others. It being measurable gives me a bit of hope that then, progress might be measurable too.

Now, imagine that at a global scale. How Americans and Europeans as a whole are more privileged thanks to exploiting people and resources in other countries. Imagine being from a small island in the pacific seeing the sea level rise everyday because powerful countries don't want to commit to reduce carbon emissions, or a traditional fisherman in Somalia that resorts to piracy because big commercial fishing boats are depleting the sea out of fish, imagine living in Zambia where a certain swiss multinational creates so much pollution that many people die of respiratory diseases, or a poor farmer in Colombia who lost a child to a war financed by a drug mainly demanded by people from the USA, or ...... The list goes on and on.

So well researched. I love the details. This episode was truly eye opening and enlightening. Now, with the Asian racism, I do feel more stressed and not sleeping well. With that, I can see how Black and African American communities can have health affects from racism and mico aggressions on a daily basis. Wow.. just wow!! I mean I kinda understood before but this is more long term and devastating to one's life and health. We need to work together to stop this.

Read Joy de Gruey's book on "Posttraumatic Slave Disorder". Epigenetics is real, black people who are descendants of slavery have generational trauma. What was done in the past and continuously, changed our genetics. Africans do NOT have hypertension, diabetes or hear disease. Also wt America have had their empathy gene obliterated by being so hateful and violent against black people for cenrturies. The normalization of this inhumane society has lasting effects on everyone in America.

How do these figures differ when you separate for gender? I’m sure black and brown women’s life expectancy differ from a white woman’s at least as much as a white woman’s from her male counterparts’. As someone who identifies as female and is seen as female it’s hard to see my advantage being lumped in as “white”, knowing my 40 is so extremely different than my husband’s 40. He literally won’t let me go to see a new doctor without him just to make sure I get the level of healthcare he would knowing that without his presence I may not.

This series is truly riviting. As a South African, seeing the overlaps between the experiences of fellow black people in America with those of us this side not only shows me that we indeed are even more similar than the media would have us believe but how widespread the nuances of racism and the horrific effects of it truly are.

The health despairity is also reflected in black and brown neighborhoods being food deserts. It is difficult to fight the chronic stress when you may be finding it also difficult to have access to the nutrients necessary to fortify your body. Look at black, indigenous Americans and Latinx communities how water quality is parceled out. These are the grotesque attacks of systematic racism, lack of clean water or decent food.

My nickname was Native bc I could go anywhere and it would be like I had always been there. Human rights for all! Healthcare, housing, food and water. We have one life it shouldn't be total shit bc of groups of ppl are complete assholes and spend their lives keeping ppl exaclty like them down.
