Activity and Racism

One effect of racism is that communities of color have far fewer opportunities for physical activity.   This lowers both quality and quantity of life.

Something not mentioned: because people of color are more often poor, they have less living space, which means they are less likely to have the money or space for indoor exercise equipment.  A white person can put a treadmill in a spare room or basement.  A black person usually can't.
