    Trump policies, racism may cause some black women’s weight problems, professor says

    Do President Trump’s policies make me look fat?


    That’s the sort of question some black women may be asking themselves, a Rutgers University professor suggested during a recent appearance on the Oprah Winfrey Network.

    Although, more accurately, the problem may be the stress and anxiety caused by the policies than the policies themselves, Brittney Cooper, who teaches gender studies at the New Jersey-based university, said on a recent episode of “Black Women OWN the Conversation.”

    Research shows black women lose weight more slowly than white women, and the Trump presidency may be exacerbating the situation, Cooper said on the program, according to CampusReform.org.
    Let me get this straight, Trump is making black women fat? So who made them fat before Trump? Were they fat during Obama's administration?

    I'll do you one better. Trump's election is giving "Latinas" premature births:

    1) Let me get this straight, Trump is making black women fat? 2) So who made them fat before Trump? 3) Were they fat during Obama's administration?
    1) Yep, or are you trying to deny what may be solid science?

    2) Nothing, they were then maybe thinner without that Trump stress.

    3) Not according to science (maybe).

    Is getting Trump out of office to reduce obesity among black women going to be the new DNC energize the black vote plan?

    Well, I have to be honest. Trump didn't cause me to almost die from congestive heart failure in October 2015. Obama did.

    When I "dismiss" you it only means that I have determined that further discussion is useless or counter-productive. Don't take it personally. Go ahead and have your last word...and move on.

    I see, so your gay is fake since you weren't born with it?
