Says it’s harder for black women to lose weight because of racism.
During a television appearance, a New Jersey gender studies professor claimed that Donald Trump’s policies were to blame for black female obesity.
“I hate when people talk about Black women being obese. I hate it, because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create,” said Brittney Cooper during a discussion on ‘Black Women OWN the Conversation’, which is broadcast on the Oprah Winfrey Network.
“We are living in the Trump era,” the professor added. “And look, those policies kill our people. You can’t get access to good health care, good insurance.”
