Are blacks the happiest race? If you were asked which race of people is the happiest, what would you say? In spite of being reminded on a daily basis how life has handed blacks a raw deal, this groups of folks has always seemed very happy--lots of laughing, and enthusiasm, low suicide rates. Surveys get right to the point and ask you how happy you are. The results:

% blacks who are very happy: 22
% blacks who are unhappy: 21
% whites who are very happy: 34
% whites who are unhappy: 11

So my experience doesn't square with the numbers. How do we explain this?
