While you do not need a sturdy to prove the effect a racist society has on blacks, if you are so unconscious that it is not apparent how detrimental US policies and racial profiling are then YES DO THE STUDY.
Thurgod Marshall study and years of proving the effect of descrimination on black children that finally proved the effects enough made blacks EQUAL under the 14th admendment abolishing segregation. There is plenty of information it should be a quick study.
Then you can apply it to every other discrimination habit this white society forces on people of color in US.
All the studies sadly cannot change the evil of racism turning into fascism.
There is a severe and critical consciousness emergency world wide with the US at the heart of the issue.
