Rethink a Racist World

A new study refutes previous studies and claims healthcare disparity has no cause in racism or race bias.

I want to believe this. It seems like the ‘logical’ thing. Obviously disparity has much to do with socioeconomic status and indeed geographic location. It is easy to imagine this is enough to explain the problems between black and white healthcare access levels. However the two previous studies I have actually read seem to have pretty infallible methodology…not that I have any training whatsoever in evaluating research design.
