Hmm when I'm out I frequently see white obese people. Black people are fatter. We don't eat right half the time *shrugs*

America as a whole is fat. Believe me, I've seen plenty of overweight non-Black people, especially when said people are over 35.

Obesity in Blacks is no different than obesity in others - high caloric diet and lack of exercise, both of which are distinctly first world problems.
