    They mean their skin is literally thicker. Read more carefully.

    It's not just with students though - I quoted a study above showing that blacks get worse treatment for breast cancer compared to whites.

    Maybe I missed something but the study you posted is from more than 30 years ago.

    Would you be surprised to find out poor people in general get worse treatment?

    All I know is that black football players don't bleed easily on tackles that would break me. But then you see white guys like JJ Watt and Brian Cushing constantly bleeding. Coincidence? I think not.

    Fair point. Here's one that is more recent on different treatments to heart attacks: http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/Health/story?id=3401076&page=1

    These studies should control for that (by looking at same hospital systems)

    Everyone knows the poors have super thick skin. That's why they're so poorly vaccinated worldwide, them big ole needles are just cost prohibitive for them. Donate Oxfarm today to make a difference.

    I have a cardiologist friend (he's Persian in case you're wondering) that I'll ask about this study. It only talks about blacks and whites. There are clearly more than black and white doctors.
