Black America Hits Rock Bottom

Black people are at the bottom of the heap. The median income of Americans is only $50,000 per year, but a mere $32,000 for African Americans.

The wealth gap is even worse. White median net worth is $113,000 but it is only $6,325 for latinos and $5,677 for blacks.

I had more to say in my column in Black Agenda Report today. Common Dreams linked to it too. Thanks for the shout out!
