Are Socioeconomics Behind Racial Disparities in Weight?

The rate of obesity and chronic diseases varies substantially across different racial and ethnic groups, but the underlying causes of those disparities remain obscure. In a new study, low socioeconomic status (SES) appears to account for more of that disparity than does lack of knowledge of healthy eating habits and diet-related health risks.
At least according to the questions asked as presented in this piece, there is almost no way to determine just how much more stupid fat low SES people are than fat high SES people.

At any level of SES, you have to either lack knowledge or possess an overabundance of stupidity/ignorance/lack of self-esteem, etc., to be fat.
