A Rutger’s University professor claimed last month that Donald Trump is responsible for black women being overweight.
I kid you not.
Rutger’s professor, Brittney Cooper – who teaches gender studies – made the claim on Oprah’s television network.
Cooper said, “I hate when people talk about black women being obese. I hate it because it becomes a way to blame us for a set of conditions that we didn’t create,” Cooper said.
She continued, “We are living in the Trump era. And look, those policies kill our people. You can’t get access to good health care, good insurance.”
No one on the set pointed out that Oprah was a fat black woman long before Donald Trump was president.
Cooper later tried to clarify to Campus Reform, which questioned her on her view. She told the publication that Trump wasn’t specifically responsible for black women’s obesity, but more generally responsible.
“Dr. Arline Geronimus’ [a public health research professor at the University of Michigan] research from the 1990s argues pretty convincingly that black women have physiological stress responses to racial stimuli and this affects our long-term health.”
Cooper went on, “I was citing this body of work and the president’s status as a racially polarizing figure that contributes to issues of racial stress for people of color.”
In other words, Trump is racist. Racists make people stressed. Being stressed makes people fat. Ergo, Trump makes black ladies fat.

“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil...
“JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.”
