  1. GG Bennett, KY Wolin, EL Robinson, S Fowler, CL Edwards (2005). Perceived racial/ethnic harassment and tobacco use among African American young adults.. American journal of public health, 95(2), 238-40. [doi]
    (last updated on 2013/07/02)

    We examined the association between perceived racial/ethnic harassment and tobacco use in 2129 African American college students in North Carolina. Age-adjusted and multivariate analyses evaluated the effect of harassment on daily and less-than-daily tobacco use. Harassed participants were twice as likely to use tobacco daily (odds ratio = 2.01; 95% confidence interval=1.94, 2.08) compared with those with no reported harassment experiences. Experiences of racial/ethnic harassment may contribute to tobacco use behaviors among some African American young adults.
