  1. Fulltext. Racial discrimination and blood pressure : The CARDIA study of young Black and White adults.

    Article - En anglais

    Fulltext.

    Objectives

    This study examined associations between blood pressure and self-reported experiences of racial discrimination and responses to unfair treatment.

    Methods

    Survey data were collected in year 7 (1992/93) of the Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults (CARDIA) study, a prospective multisite community-based investigation.

    Participants included 831 Black men, 1143 Black women, 1006 White men, and 1106 White women 25 to 37 years old.

    Results

    Systolic blood pressure among working-class Black adults reporting that they typically accepted unfair treatment and had experienced racial discrimination in none of seven situations was about 7 mm Hg higher than among those reporting that they challenged unfair treatment and experienced racial discrimination in one or two of the situations.

    Among professional Black adults, systolic blood pressure was 9 to 10 mm Hg lower among those reporting that they typically challenged unfair treatment and had not experienced racial discrimination.

    Black-White differences in blood pressure were substantially reduced by taking into account reported experiences of racial discrimination and responses to unfair treatment.

    Conclusions

    Research on racial/ethnic distributions of blood pressure should take into account how discrimination may harm health.
