Don’t blame the BAME : ethnic and structural inequalities in susceptibilities to COVID-19.

Bentley, Gillian (2020) 'Don’t blame the BAME : ethnic and structural inequalities in susceptibilities to COVID-19.', American journal of human biology., 32 (5).


This article has been written from the UK, using British terminology to refer to ethnic minorities where BAME (Black, Asian, minority ethnic groups) is a commonly used and recognized acronym. In the United Kingdom, Asian also generally refers to minorities from South Asian countries including India, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. In the United States, Asian more frequently refers to people from Southeast Asian countries like China, Japan, and South Korea. Socially constructed categories used to refer to minoritized groups are variously constructed in different countries; for example, British nomenclature most often refers to ethnicity rather than race.
