The opioid epidemic has now reached black America

There’s a common narrative told about America’s current opioid epidemic: It is, unlike many of the drug overdose crises of the past, predominantly a white epidemic.

The newest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, however, complicates that story.

White people still suffer a greater rate of overdose deaths, and, as a majority of the population, they still make up much more of the raw total of overdose deaths.
