The expansion in the number of overweight Americans is partly explained by the lack of ability by poor people to purchase the kind of affordable and nutritious food which would keep them healthy and slimmer. The food gap, as Winne refers to it, is the gap between the ability of the middle- and upper-classes to access high quality, nutritious food at an affordable price and with relative ease, while on the other side of the chasm there are millions of poor people who lack access and an ability to pay for the same high-quality food as their middle-class neighbors.

Down with Brawn, Up with Brains: How the New Economy Affects…

As usual this shift started happening within the black community first and has now filtered out to the general population.

Skills that women and specifically black women are attaining at greater rates than their male cohorts.
