    They probably get less sleep from having to keep one eye open all the time for fear of other blacks killing them.

    I don't get less sleep because I don't let anything worry me. I get my 8 hours everyday and feel so happy that I crave more of it everyday. Sleep is my escape from this miserable world. Soon we all will be asleep forever and I look forward to that beautiful day.

    Is it because you can't sleep and get arrested or sell drugs or loot stores and abandoned houses during a hurricane? Maybe it's because they are too stressed out by wishing they were white and had better credit.

    Love vox videos. Notice: Whenever there is a vox video about gender or racial inequality I notice there are a lot more dislikes. Vox, you do a great job at not blaming but just telling a story, however, it really upsets people. Can you please make a video about this phenomenon? Please

    Are black Americans so dumb? How is it other races who arrived in America don't face all this? What about Indians living in America? Why only there African Americans poor and have problem like this? Do white people only discriminate against them but not other races? It's almost as if your race is simply filled with losers and fail to help yourself.

    I thought when I read the thumbnail to this video it might not be about blaming white people. Turns out I’m wrong. How crazy is it that black people being delusional is keeping them up and now it’s our fault. White privilege does not exist and racism only exists because it can’t be gotten rid of. I don’t hate the race, I hate the people who are bad. It isn’t my fault that when I am judging my life to keep myself alive that I take into consideration that the black population makes up 13% of the U.S. population yet still is responsible for 43% of the crime in the United States. So if I’m trying to not be a victim of a crime, yes I generalize and avoid black people. It’s not racism, it’s survival.

    The question should be more of "What" is causing the lack of sleep for african americans and just humans in general and what are some possible solutions to that. The video is indeed informative, but having such a huge following to present the problem, there should also be information to promote ideas for individuals to come up with a solution.

    Cultof Ian I believe it's trying to point out the correlation between sleeping habits and status quo. Its not trying to say, "every black person," rather, as you say, a broad statement. You can make broad statements like that based off a sample group. In other words, it's not meant to be taken as everybody who is black sleeps worse, it's simply pointing out the connections. While I did not agree with every single point the video makes, it doesn't render everything it's trying to convey "stupid."

  72. Cultof Ian

    Cultof Ian5 months ago

    The problem is the generalizing of races. Some black people pop a xan after school and sleep through the night and some white people stay up all night smoking meth, we're all fuckn individuals. There taking some small random piece data to make all sorts of generalizations about race and it doesn't help anybody. If anything they make black people look helpless and pathetic, like what's wrong with sleeping on a couch anyways? Besides its not like they surveyed everybody in the US. And if black people need more sleep, they just need to go to bed earlier. Also, why is it every white person's problem? What do they want from us anyways to start sleeping less? Its idiotic and pointless and any point that might have tried to be conveyed was lost to the stupidity of the subject matter.

  73. SEMS

    This is probably the worst video I've ever seen Vox publish. To state that discrimination may be a factor for the black American "sleep gap" is arguably the most preposterous thing I've ever heard. Look, the issues that impact black American culture has nothing to do with discrimination. Enough with that already. The primary issue that plagues black Americans is lack of personal accountability and ownership over one's self. This impacts EVERY culture on the planet, whites included, but is found far more often in black American culture than anything else. YOU are responsible for your own success. YOU are responsible for your own education. YOU are responsible for adhering and abiding by values that benefit both yourself and the ones around you. And for the love of all that is holy, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR GETTING A GOOD NIGHT'S SLEEP! The day black Americans (culturally) begin to take ownership over yourself is the day the pay gap, sleep gap, life expectancy gap, etc levels out. There is no boogyman out there holding you back. The greatest enemy to one's success is themselves.

    There are studies of lead (Pb) exposure done on rats; they show the neural system underlying circadian rhythms gets damaged directly. In such cases sleep disturbance does not have to be a side effect of stress, or mental health issues, or anything. It seems to me the claim of this video is a no brainier; but I guess that conflicts with racist stereotypes about laziness.
