Michael Savage explains why Native Americans get drunk easily

Jun. 20, 2014

For what it’s worth, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) contradicts Savage’s claims…

Despite the fact that more Native American people die of alcohol-related causes than do any other ethnic group in the United States, research shows that there is no difference in the rates of alcohol metabolism and enzyme patterns between Native Americans and Whites.

Myth: American Indians metabolize alcohol differently than other people groups (such as Caucasians, African Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, etc.). American Indians have a biological weakness to alcohol that others don’t have.

Fact: Metabolism of alcohol among all people groups is related to prior drinking history and body weight, not race or ethnicity.

Having been fully indoctrinated by liberal professors, MFP accepts that race is largely a sociopolitical construct.

But I find the last part– that ethnicity has no effect on the rate at which alcohol is metabolized– hard to swallow (pun intended).

Wouldn’t populations evolving independent of each other– adapting to different environments over tens of thousands of years– respond to certain stimuli differently?

You-know-who people’s predilection for overweight white women, for instance.
