A 2012 study published in Common Health magazine reported, “No population in the United States has a higher obesity rate than African American women, four out of five of whom are overweight or obese, according to a 2012 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
Obviously, there is no correlation between obesity, black women and Trump.
But it doesn’t matter.
Rutgers gender studies professor, Brittany Cooper, when speaking to a group of black women on Oprah Winfrey Network’s “Black Women OWN the Conversation,” made the claim that it was President Trump who was making black women fat.
Brittany Cooper, “We are living in the Trump era. And look, those policies kill our people. You can’t get access to good health care, good insurance.”

“I hate when people talk about Black women being obese. I hate it, because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create.” – @ProfessorCrunk.
