For whatever reason, this “study” done by a psychology professor didn’t cover any reasons that white students might put on weight during their college years.

The Daily Caller reported:
The professor, Enrique W. Neblett, Jr., made the claim during a guest lecture at the University of Georgia, reports The Red & Black (the student newspaper at UGA).
Neblett’s Monday lecture was entitled “Racism-Related Stress and Mental Health: A Study of African American College Students During the Transition to Young Adulthood.”
