White racism linked to fatal heart disease for blacks and whites

Living in unabashedly racist communities can shorten the lives of both blacks and whites, according to new research from UC Berkeley.

Their findings suggest that blacks and, to a lesser degree, whites who reside in overtly racist communities are more prone to dying from heart disease and other circulatory diseases.
