    In the year 2019 I'm going to try and get more sleep and my 8 hours of sleep a night because I'm turning 41 in 2019 but in the past and really since my early 20's I have not been sleeping well. I really got about 4 or 5 hours of sleep a night in the past on the regular. Now I can't say I didn't get 7 or 8 hours of sleep sometimes because I did but most of the time I got like 5 hours of sleep a night.

    I hope one day black people wake up and realize that they would never get any sleep or anything else, and they will always be SERVANTS as long as Europeans are controlling and dominating the world.

    But this is a class thing, not a race point. Your main point was that poorer people with less stable jobs get less sleep usually. All races can be poor and have unstable jobs. Sure, black people have a statistically higher poverty rate, but keep in mind that that's sociology. Which is far from a perfect science. I wish this video was more inclusive and less hungry to immediately portray nonwhite people as victims.

    Although I think this claim is a bit of a stretch, at the same time it isn’t entirely ridiculous either. However, I don’t think we can definitely conclude that black Americans are getting the least sleep out of all races and that the reason for that is solely discrimination. There isn’t really any explicit racism behind this. I don’t believe it’s a definite race issue, although race can play a part in this disparity.

    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.

    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."

  87. Cultof Ian

    Cultof Ian9 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.
