Everyday Discrimination Impacts Mental Health
Researchers have determined that African Americans and Caribbean blacks who experience discrimination of multiple types are at substantially greater risk for a variety of mental disorders including anxiety, depression and substance abuse.
This doesn't just apply to African Americans and Caribbean blacks. Discrimination hurts everyone regardless of race. It's really sad how cruel some people can be to others.
