This Isn't A Racist Blog

There was a piece in the LA Times yesterday about the retail clothing industry. It talked about how retailers are selling more plus sized clothing than ever before. It stated:

"If retailers have snapped to attention about larger sizes, it's no wonder. The average American woman in her 20s was almost 29 pounds heavier in 2002 than in 1960 — and women between the ages of 40 and 49 were about 26 pounds heavier, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."

I submit that since the influx of hispanics during that exact time frame has had a lot to do with the obesity epidemic. Empirical study shows that hispanics tend to be heavier than their white counterparts, especially women. In addition, the food they eat is fattening. That has made the rest of us get fat too, as we have adopted Mexican food as a favorite here in the US.

Where's the border patrol?

I'll be back
