Abstract

Exposure to racial discrimination is a prevalent psychosocial stressor in African Americans but may not be significantly associated with hypertension prevalence; degree of stress derived from encounters may be an important determinant. More research is needed to clarify the complex relationship between stress-related racial discrimination and hypertension in African Americans.
