Funny how in the conversation about race, privilege, and general social outcomes - Asian Americans are always left out. This is especially surprising from a newspaper in a city where Asian-American readers represent the 2nd largest demographic . . .
Since they do not help with the "whites keep everyone else from succeeding" narrative, people like Mudede HAVE to erase their individuality and ethnicity to preserve his belief system, usually grouping them in with whites.
I can't wait for the next set of silly juxtapositions that Charles will write about.
I believe this is incorrect because Hispanics have lower death rates than whites, as the article's charts indicate. This has a name, the "Hispanic Epidemiological Paradox":
When will The Stranger start talking about the real issue of "Hispanic Privilege" of when it comes to life expectancy in the US? And why no mention that the bottom two demographics for life expectancy are white and black men? What is being done to better protect these two obviously disenfranchised (when it comes to heathcare) groups?
Purely anecdotal. I'm sure you can dismiss it if you're disinclined to believe it. But this squares 100% with my personal experience.
