What an idiot. Clearly he’s never been down here to the South as most people eat a ton of fried food, not just black people.

You have to love these people that literally make shit up in their heads because it sounds reasonable to them and then share these “facts” with everyone else. Mexican food has vegetables so Mexicans must be thin. Never mind that Mexico recently passed up the US for fattest country in the world.

Ladies and Gentlemen, allow me to introduce Colorado State Sen. Vicki Marblehead (LOON). She will now, in under 5 minutes, make everyone in this room and across the nation lose a few more brain cells. Another undiagnosed head trauma.

Is anyone surprised that Ms Marble’s district includes part of the area that is trying to secede?

Gawd, the stupid, it burns. I don’t know if some of these these idiots are racist or just clueless, but there’s really no excuse for either.

I mean, you’re an effing state senator, for crying out loud—how can you stand up in front of your constituents and spew such obvious ignorance? You have the internet at your fingertips. Google stuff before you open your mouth, FFS—it takes all of about 15-20 minutes to find reliable info & quickly skim through it.

From the National Center for Biotechnology Information, U.S. National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health:

Diabetes and Mexicans: Why the Two Are Linked

Epidemiology of type 2 diabetes in Mexico

From the National Diabetes Information Clearinghouse (NDIC):

Diabetes in African Americans

From the CDC’s Diabetes Public Health Resource (no mention of chicken//):

Why do some racial and ethnic groups have higher rates of diabetes?

Diabetes can indeed “run in families,” meaning that heredity often makes someone more likely to develop diabetes. Researchers believe that certain genes affecting immune response can play a role in the development of type 1 diabetes, while genes affecting insulin function can contribute to the development of type 2 diabetes. While African Americans, Hispanic/Latino Americans, American Indians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islander Americans have a slightly lower rate of type 1 diabetes, they are at a higher risk for type 2 diabetes than the rest of the population.

Many researchers think that some African Americans, Hispanic/Latino Americans, American Indians, Asian Americans, and Pacific Islander Americans inherited a “thrifty gene” which helped their ancestors store food energy better during times when food was plentiful, to survive during times when food was scarce. Now that “feast or famine” situations rarely occur for most people in the United States, the gene which was once helpful may now put these groups at a higher risk for type 2 diabetes.

In addition, poverty, lack of access to health care, cultural attitudes and behaviors are barriers to preventive and diabetes management care for some minority Americans.

cdc.gov

There’s more, lots more, where that came from. Oh look—the federal government even has an Office of Minority Health. Imagine that. Lazy effing yahoo.

Marble’s official site:

The thing about that list is whether there is really anyone *against* any of them. The nuance is all in deciding what services are worth having, and working out how they will be paid for. Then the discussion and debate can start.
