Black adolescents in the US are less likely to use alcohol, marijuana, and tobacco
Quote
Black adolescents in the US are less likely to use alcohol, marijuana, and tobacco compared with non-Hispanic Whites, but little is known about the consistency of these racial/ethnic differences in substance use across the lifecourse.

Blacks progress from use to dependence faster than Whites (Alvanzo et al., 2011), have longer duration of use (Caetano & Kaskutas, 1995), and experience more substance-related consequences than other racial/ethnic groups

But the steady creep of extreme views from the fringes of academia to the everyday should worry us all. Academic freedom is an honourable ideal, and one worth defending, because we trust that the system works. Through careful checks and peer review, only the most reliable, well-evidenced ideas, and most trustworthy researchers, should pass through.
Racism is creeping back into mainstream science

I figured this post would go ignored on TR, but I guess the two AGW deniers are especially interested in it? That's interesting.

It's just a boring shitpost.  The post isn't interesting.  My response telling you it isn't interesting isn't interesting.  The only remotely interesting thing about the whole sorry affair is that you think any of it is interesting.

Thanks.  :) I have no idea what I posted, though, because I commonly delete drunk posts.
