In 1987, The Milbank Quarterly published two special supplements on the health status of blacks in the United States. Dr. Vincent Navarro wrote a letter concerning the issues raised in these publications to the editor of The Milbank Quarterly, but the decision was made not to print it. Because of the importance of the subject involved, the letter is published here, with the hope of opening a debate on the issues discussed in The Milbank Quarterly's supplements and in Navarro's letter. Professor Miller, a major contributor to the supplements, will reply to Navarro's comments in an upcoming issue of this journal.
