The health care crisis that has left a steadily increasing number of Americans without health insurance has hit blacks much harder than whites -- exacerbating the higher disease and death rates that plague black communities.It's not just poverty that has forced many blacks to go without health insurance, health officials said yesterday during a national conference at the Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health.Employed blacks whose incomes place them above the poverty level are also less likely than whites to have health insurance because they tend to work for smaller, less stable companies that are hard pressed to provide health coverage, the officials said.
