I honestly can't imagine that a woman of Randall's considerable intellect and versatility would say that "many black women are fat because they want to be" without also saying that "many black women" are fat because we are like any other human being. We may be fat because of unresolved emotional issues like past sexual abuse and choose to self-medicate with food. We may be fat because we are working (and commuting back and forth from work) and taking care of our children (and our husbands, parents and/or other people's children) and don't have the time to exercise properly. Maybe we are too tired to exercise by the end of the day. Maybe we live in a dangerous neighborhood and are afraid to walk outside for exercise. Maybe we just like to eat.
