Racial identity tied to happiness, study finds (but only for blacks)
Robert C. in Nashville writes:
Here is a link to Science Daily if you want to poke around and see numerous studies which assert that white racial discrimination against blacks is the reason (of course) for black depression, substance abuse, unhappiness and low self-esteem, etc, etc. The study currently highlighted shows that having a sense of black racial identity increases happiness—for blacks. But I suppose this is not allowed for whites!
The page you linked is laid out as though it were the site’s main page, creating the impression that the articles on black racial identity on that page are all that the site is about. But that’s not the case. It’s a huge site, covering all aspects of science. See the drop down menus across the top of the page. My guess is that they handed off the “race” section of the website to a black editor who is into black racial identity.
