Traditionally,  the Hispanic infant mortality rate has been lower than the rate for Black babies.  From this study commissioned by the University of Texas, there are zip codes in San Antonio where the infant mortality rate exceeds 16 deaths for every 1000 live births. The state average is  around six, with the average for black babies hovering around 13 for every 1000 births. The trend should be going in a different direction. With our series, we’re going to shine the light as to why this disparity exists. Watch our sizzle reel. Support The_Gap. @Lindell153
