Video on Wealth Inequality Tells A Tale of Two Americas
An explanation of wealth inequality along racial lines.
“Much of the racial wealth disparities in the U.S. is due to inheritance. White people are far more likely to inherit money and land than black people are, and that’s due in large part to the fact that for almost all of American history, it was basically impossible for African Americans to accrue wealth.”
“To deny the existence of systemic racism is to deny a huge body of evidence indicating that racial bias affects almost every facet of American life.”
