In an interview with ABC News, T.I. said

There’s systemic, institutionalized racism all about this country. […] We lead in diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, cholesterol. You know, we have so many pre-existing conditions already. There’s more black people without proper health care so ain’t not telling when the last time they got (themselves) checked out … and not to mention asthma. As you know, there’s so many people in our community that have bad asthma … you have these pre-existing conditions and then you throw on top of it another crucial, treacherous attacker of your respiratory system.
