In fact, no. There's is zero evidence that African-American infant deaths have a genetic factor that's more than noise. If you count only white America, the rate is 5.6, which puts the US in position 24 out of 30 in the OECD ranking (tiny improvement from 28).
Too bad we can't blame it on the shitty genes of nonwhites, that most American of excuses.
