Perceived racial/ethnic harassment and tobacco use among African American young adults

, : Perceived racial/ethnic harassment and tobacco use among African American young adults. American Journal of Public Health 95(2): 238-240

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.
