PEOPLE OF COLOR

  • Wealth, Employment, Education, Criminal Justice, Housing and Healthcare are among the causes of economic disparities.
  • Blacks for instance with college degrees, are twice as likely to be unemployed as all other graduates.
  • Median wealth for black Americans will fall to $0 by 2053, if current trends continue. Latino-Americans, who are also experiencing a sustained downward wealth slide, will hit $0 about two decades later.
  • Blacks make up only 13% of the population, and represent about 40% of the prison population. As a result, 13% of them have lost their rights to vote.
