  •  That obesity among African American children (4+ / 0-)

    is increasing is only another sign that we live in post-racial times.

    •  Another thing to consider (3+ / 0-)

      is lack of places to play, especially in urban areas; many schoolyards are fenced off and locked up the minute the dismissal bell rings, to prevent vandalism purportedly, and there are few parks or open spaces within walking or bicycling distance. Plus, many parents are too afraid to let their kids out on the streets to play because they never know if that kid might get caught in the crossfire between rival gangs (or even between gangs and cops).
