@Pamela Rosa,
#s 4, 7, 8, 11, 13, are likely related to how money and services, including education, are provided in much lower amounts to non-caucasian people and communities. Racism kills.

#5 is obviously connected to #15. If a white woman has a longer term pregnancy, then having a larger pelvis would stand to reason since the baby would in general be larger, having had the extra time inside the womb and need a larger birth canal.
