Transcript

Ray: Nice day! B.D.: Easy for you to say. Ray: But not for you? B.D.: No, my kind is dying off. Man, my peer groups sure getting hammered lately... Ray: What peer group's that? B.D.: Middle-age whites. The mortality rate's soaring! They're called deaths of despair-- from drugs, alcohol, or suicide-- driven by economic and social distress. Oddly, it doesn't seem to affect blacks or Latinos. Ray: Nothin' odd about it, man... we've always lived distressed lives. We're used to it. B.D.: So... black privilege? Ray: Absolutely. We're lucky that way.
