Black Professionals More Likely to Suffer From Sleep Problems

A new study found that Black professionals are the most sleep deprived in the U.S. Researchers found that 37 percent of short sleepers (less than 7 hours a night) overall were Black and that 42 percent of Black professionals experience short sleep as compared to 26 percent of white professionals, Ibtimes.com reported. It’s believed this disparity exists because of added stress, workplace discrimination and pressure to perform.
