BBC: What's killing USA's white men? (video)
What's Killing America's White Men? (BBC News, Oct. 18, 2018) Every year nearly 45,000 people in America (the USA, not the Americas) kill themselves. That is more than twice the number that die in homicides, and the numbers are increasing. There is one group in particular causing this spike -- white, middle aged men. India Rakusen goes to the rural state of Montana, where suicide rates are double the national average, to find out what drives so many of these [guilt-ridden?] men to despair and taking their own lives.
