Date published: 03/11/21

Research by Dr. Vickie Mays and colleagues, published in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, is being prominently featured on the UCLA Newsroom and is generating substantial news coverage. The researchers who analyzed a national sample of the views of Black men and white men found that Black men of all income levels reported experiencing higher levels of discrimination than their white counterparts. The results indicate that many Black men face discriminatory indignities on a nearly daily basis.
