Thank you. That linked paper is one that I ended up reading over the summer. I have observed differences in treatment of pain, but have not felt that the differences were attributable to the idea that healthcare workers truly believe that AAs had a higher pain tolerance/threshold. My concern, rather, has been that the disparity may be related to simply not believing the pain report.

From my observation on surgical ward, AA has much lower threshold of pain and require more painkillees and are more difficult to settle.
