The Problem With Being Tall, Male, and Black
The incident, which took place in the early morning hours of May 8, is one of several recent encounters to shine a spotlight on the daily realities of being black in a shared space. In Memphis, Tennessee, a white woman called the police on a black real-estate investor. These incidents expose an important truth about race relations in the US: White people regularly call the police on black people who are doing nothing wrong not only because of misplaced fear, but as a method of regulating access to shared space. While a few white men said they were not aware of ever being feared by others as they moved through a public space, no black and Hispanic respondent was able to say the same. The study was small; Day interviewed 84 men. But the in-depth interviews she carried out highlight the racial divide in how white men, as opposed to men of color, experience shared spaces. In addition, contemporary attempts to regulate black people in shared spaces can be linked back to the US history of racial segregation.
Inter-group relations are among the factors that contribute to such disparities, many of which manifest themselves in gaps in health care. As an assistant professor of psychiatry at University of Michigan and a visiting faculty member at UCLA, I have conducted a number of studies on how the intersection of race and gender influences health. And, my recent study suggests that white men have more negative attitudes against blacks than do white women.

If you're a man, there are many advantages to being tall. Research has found that tall men are more attractive to women , are perceived as natural leaders , and tend to earn more money than their height-challenged counterparts. For black men, being tall may be less of a boon, and more of a burden. In the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers describe three studies that back up this contention. The first looked at more than one million people who were "stopped and frisked" by the New York Police Department before the program was outlawed by a judicial ruling. The researchers restricted their data to non-Hispanic black and white males, and controlled for several factors that could account for higher odds of being stopped by police, including age, weight, and local crime rates real and perceived. They found that "tall black men are especially likely to receive unjustified attention from police.
