From the New York Times:
Death Rates Rising for Middle-Aged White Americans, Study Finds
By GINA KOLATA NOV. 2, 2015
Something startling is happening to middle-aged white Americans. Unlike every other age group, unlike every other racial and ethnic group, unlike their counterparts in other rich countries, death rates in this group have been rising, not falling.
That finding was reported Monday by two Princeton economists, Angus Deaton, who last month won the 2015 Nobel Prize for Economic Sciences, and Anne Case. Analyzing health and mortality data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and from other sources, they concluded that rising annual death rates among this group are being driven not by the big killers like heart disease and diabetes but by an epidemic of suicides and afflictions stemming from substance abuse: alcoholic liver disease and overdoses of heroin and prescription opioids.
Remember, merely saying “All Lives Matter” is racist. Thus, the concept that “White Lives Matter” is close to unthinkable.
The suicide of novelist David Foster Wallace might be a highbrow example of the impact of the demoralization of white Americans.
