African-American Teens Drink Less Than Whites

Past studies about American youth and drinking liquor have found that African-American teens drink less often, consume less alcohol and are least likely to binge drink than their white counterparts. However, a study this summer found that Black female teens that do drink are more likely to drink liquor while their white counterparts drink both liquor and beer.
