Created by director/producer Angela Tucker, we featured season 1 of this series last year; fans will be pleased to know that season 2 is in full swing, with episode 2 embedded below; this one titled Black Folk Don't: Have Eating Disorders.

But first...

What is the danger in assuming that black folk don't have issues with their body? What happens when there is no room for discussion for black folk to discuss eating disorders? Or maybe black folk don't actually have any eating disorders? Where does stereotype end and truth begin?

Watch season 2, episode 3, on black folks and camping below:

    You know, I'm not really feeling the second season as I did the first. I think last season they took a more humorous approach to addressing these stereotypes. Now, not so much.

    The sad fact is that black women issues with eating disorders. A new study indicated 56% of a sample population obese black women had been victims of physical & sexual abuse. Under the stereotype of fat & lazy black women are suffering people.
