Today I learned about racism being a big part or playing a big role of premature babies being born in the US. I found it say that people can make an assumption on how premature babies are being born because a lot of things can be a factor but they, researchers, chose few. One of the factors to cause premature babies to be born is this stress detection in a mother. It occurs when she has brought stress on herself or someone else, and she is stressed for a long time. So when she conceives and is pregnant, the baby can cause her more stress so that makes her go into early labor. Also the stress can be from racism. What also struck me about racism is black or African Americans without a felony are less likely to get a job while whites with felons are more likely to get a job. That made me upset because that shows how the economy itself is racist within the United States.
