A recent study done by Northwestern University, titled “Children Media and Race,” shows that Black and Hispanic youth consume an average of four hours more of media every day than white children do — a difference that has increased tremendously in the past decade.

Black Voices reports:

The findings show Black and Hispanic youth consume more than three hours of television daily. Whites and Asians consumed more than two hours. Technologies such as DVDs, TiVo, and mobile and online viewing increased television consumption to 5 hours and 54 minutes for black children, 5 hours and 21 minutes for Hispanics, 4 hours and 41 minutes for Asians, and 3 hours and 36 minutes for whites.
