Maybe: The disease is still rare and most patients are going undiagnosed. Because of this good data is difficult to get when those diagnosed are the minority and other factors influence who gets diagnosed. That said, there is a recent study showing mortality is worse among black women - at least in the US but this says nothing of prevalence.
