There's no need for a study or even a CDC report for this. Just look around. BW are nearly universally fat hogs.

There may be many large black women, but there are also those of us that are thin. I hope that more learn to value eating healthy and daily exercise. However, there's a high rate of obesity around the whole country for all races. Think about the majority of people you live around, work with or go to school with, most are overweight. This is a fat country.
