    It's because the racist sun sets on everyone else but keeps black people up at night. Are these people (and by that I mean leftists, not blacks) really running out of things to call racist? I'd say they're unhinged, but that would be offensive to doors that have come loose off their frames.

    Why mention that black people on average get less sleep and black people on average make less money and make the correlation? Why not just assess the direct relationship between sleep quality and income? Also, you said at the end that you wanted a government mandate and about 20 seconds later said it is not known if getting more sleep will improve overall health and research is still being done. How can you be so quick to advocate for such government overreach when the science itself is still not done let alone the moral and political implications of such a stance?

    It all comes back to the same thing. We must only trust the govt and taxes to fix things. You have NO idea how insulting this is to black people. You are saying once again... that blacks are incapable of doing something thay every one else deals with... not enough sleep...and that the govt must intervene to save poor black folks. What you are doing is evil. Blacks, whites, Asians, Hispanics and all other races are no different. The only thing separating us is less than 0.04% genetically and nothing mentally. We all struggle with paying bills, raising kids, working hard and dealing with challenges. Only you people keep telling minorities that they face Nazis around every corner where there is none. 1963 America was 55 years ago. Democrat him crow laws are history... not reality. How about telling black folks what they can do and be. ANYTHING DAMN THING THEY WANT TO BE. We just all have to follow the same rules. Get an education. Be responsible. Pay taxes. Raise good kids. It's really that easy.

    0:41 54.2% versus 66.8% based on self-report? How indicative of anything is this data (obtained with this method)? For example, you can't make meaningful expectations of sleep of a randomly met white versus black person. Also, since the degree of sleep deprivation matters, overall distributions of sleep amount should better be taken into account, not just 7 hours bar.

    These guys are so lazy they didn't even read the poll they are quoting. Here it is sleepfoundation.org/media-center/press-release/poll-reveals-sleep-differences-among-ethnic-groups. The answers as to why different ethnic groups get less sleep and by how much are in the questions and answers in the poll. But these folks were too busy fabricating their own racism based theory to read the f*** poll

    This is a *really* dumb video. The title is stupid. Race has nothing to do with sleep, all you're telling me is stressed Americans don't sleep well. The graph you show at 2:33 tells me poverty rates in Natives is almost as high as the one for black people, so why aren't they considered as well? They're not getting good sleep because of stress, living in noisy neighborhoods or annoying work hours, none of those affect just black people. Some people just need to stop making everything to be about race, jfc.

  61. assassinate241

    assassinate2413 days ago

    I'm wondering why the video got so many dislikes and after reading some comments I think it's because of the way the title's answer is being presented. Honestly, I thought the video was quite insightful but I did also roll my eyes when the answer was "discrimination". Discrimination is wide reaching subject and generally the impact of discrimination is not perceived as being related to stress. If the answer was "money", which black Americans have less of indirectly thanks to discrimination, then people wouldn't have been so displeased. I've seen this late because the video never showed up in my recommended probably due to the dislike ratio being so high and MReporter's Algorithm not liking that. Discrimination should have been a connotation not the direct answer. This is my opinion and although it's unlikely a Vox staffer will see it, I hope it helps someone. Despite the overall displeasure of the video, I enjoyed it. Thank you.

    "Researchers point to stress caused by discrimination as one strong possibility." I emphasize "one" because this video is very misleading. You can't pick out only one study that may possibly and obscurely suggest that black Americans get less sleep and offer no connection between the two. You are basically admitting that your main source is unsure if your central argument is even valid. It is as if you are looking for reasons to complain even though your reasoning isn't even accepted as true by your own source. You are effectively minimizing true discrimination.
