I wish the author could have provided some specific examples or anecdotes. It was pretty vague and I would have liked to have seen the article more fleshed out. Do doctors listen to black women's concerns less? Are they less likely to check for risk factors?

Also, health has a huge impact on pregnancy and birth risk factors and unfortunately healthy lifestyles are not accessible to many underprivileged populations. I don't think "being black" is a risk factor in and of itself, but black women are less likely to be able to live as healthy of a lifestyle as their white counterparts, same as poor/wealthy.
