Abstract

ABSTRACT: Black American males already have higher rates of cancer than other American populations, and these rates are steadily increasing. This article shows that the longstanding black male cancer problem is most meaningfully explained by a combination of factors that include racial discrimination, economic class, and culture —not by any one of the three. The author argues that an overwhelming majority of the limited resources for prevention of cancer among minorities and the poor ought to be directed toward alleviating the black cancer problem rather than toward other poor minority populations.
