47% of black children born are estimated to be from the generation of the poor Africans with only 23 % of the Americans falling in the same group (David & Collins 2007). This disadvantages the black children against accessing the basic child requirements and rights, which every child is entitled. Low weight of birth is therefore, a physiological factor that cause and disadvantages many blacks. In addition the blacks in America face mental stress when giving birth at the American hospitals, this is because of the discrimination they face when their babies weight are taken. Moreover, statistics point out that African child face physical challenges in fields such as sports as a result of the poor development from childhood.
C-2 High infant mortality rate can be associated to many things such as diseases, negligence and socio-cultural effects. Genetics plays a key factor in the mortality rate of African Americans who despite staying in the same country with the Americans under good health conditions have high mortality rate. According to an American journal on public health mortality rate of the African Americans are high due to several factors one being genetics. Statistics prove that Americans and blacks face same death problems originating from varied diseases but only the African Americans face its wrath. In addition, research shows that out of the total chronic diseases only 20% favor the blacks, while the rest have serious diverse effects on the blacks. This is because of the genetic
immunity inherited from the parents making the children susceptible to suffer from the same conditions as the parents (David & Collins 2007). This makes researchers conclude that all the high rate of infant deaths is associated with genetic transfer and mutation to the children. C-3 Socio-economic status influences the rate of infant mortality in various ways. The activity of the brain depends on positive social mentality a factor, which retards or accelerates functions of the brain. When one arrives in America, he has a good health however, on arrival the health deteriorates. This is because of the introduction of chronic diseases, which interferes with the normal actions of the African Americans. Hypertension and diabetes are examples of such diseases, which are associated with socio economic effects that cause the high infant mortality rate in the Africans. RHANES data has also proven this as the unique living socio economic styles increases the systolic and systolic pressures not forgetting the increase in the 10 bio-measures. In the movie when the bough breaks the main actors are not able to get children an e vent associated with the socio-economic beliefs. However some hopes are seen after ritual customs are practiced proving the factor that socio-economic factors directly affects the mortality rate (Kaestner, 2006). C-4 Mexican Americans undergo unhealthy assimilations when they arrive in America. The assimilations change their whole body structure and system. The assimilations interfere with the normal action of the body and instead develop new ways, which are unfit f or the Mexicans. In addition, stress is another factor that dictates the incidence of Mexican people living in the United States. Stress subject people to mental pressure that can often lead to stringent decisions. Acculturation indicators such as language are used
