There exists an unexpected challenge in the quest for racial justice.
In 2005 researchers at the University of California, San Diego, began an experiment that would last five years. The researchers hoped to compare how blacks and whites experienced slow-wave sleep. What they found was disturbing.
Generally, people are thought to spend 20 percent of their night in slow-wave sleep, and the study’s white participants hit this mark. Black participants, however, spent only about 15 percent of the night in slow-wave sleep.
