The experts have done not only physiological analysis but also psychological to have in-depth information about the link between the race of people and their drinking habits. The results show that in some areas particular race has people with more such habits which vary in the same race in other areas.

Researchers had compared some factors and levels of heavy drinking and they are influenced caused, this includes racial identity affiliation, and discrimination as well mainly in a single race and multiracial adults.
On this note, researchers had explored the affiliations and racial discrimination with two interactions that are correlated for heavy drinking within multiracial people.
This study is found by the pre-existed data set which is involved with reports of 29,000 adults by the conducted survey named “the national epidemiologic survey on alcohol and related condition”.
Based on the survey, there is a percent of white people, 26 percent of black people, 5 percent of Asian people, and 2 percent of multiracial people.

The multiracial people report as most experienced for racial discrimination with heavy alcohol consumption as multiracial people are reported with lower levels of identity compared to other participants.
Researchers had advised the mentorship which might benefit the multiracial youth because they recommend multiracial people who are included with racial discrimination explorations.
