Scoop.it!

Alcohol Addiction and Abuse | BlackWomensHealth.com is the premier online destination for health and wellness resources for and about African-American women and their families.

This article shows that alcholism is not such a big problem in black women but they still have to deal with it because of their spouces. So it shows that black males have a problem with alcoholism but not as much as white males do. Alcoholism is many times related to stress. Alcoholism in minority families might be because of racism, sexual exploitation, and poor relationships between black males and women.
