Afro ethnics process depression in different ways than Whites.  The headline, February 12 reads:

Test Used to Diagnose Depression May Not Work on Black People, Study Finds

Elly Belle of Teen Vogue asserts: “Because everyone is different, the way that depression manifests can vary based on many factors, including race… [research by] the Center for Epidemiologic Studies Depression Scale (CES-D), the test widely used to screen people for depression, is much more effective at determining the mental state of white people than people from other backgrounds — particularly young black people.”

Seems tests were universally developed to measure depression in white women.
