Why Black Women, Infants Lag In Birth Outcomes By Michele Norris

This article by Norris's NPR gives me a chill.

"And in Delaware, as in other states, there is something counterintuitive going on with the race gap in birth outcomes. The gap does not narrow with age and educational attainment. In other words, white women's health outcomes improve as they climb the socioeconomic ladder and give birth in their 20s and early 30s, rather than in their teen years. Not so for black women, whose health problems seem to compound with age."
