One reason, apparently, is that there is no safety net. Twice as many white middle-aged Americans die as the same age group in Sweden, where there are ample services. Drugs, suicide and alcohol are having greater and greater impact. The American Dream’s in trouble. Government priorities are prison and war. American culture is a death cult. Blacks and Hispanics in the US are not suffering greater mortality.
White misery originates in crushed expectations. Blacks and Hispanics were already adapted to the harshness of their economic environment.
