    His opinion doesn’t matter. He’s only half black. Real blacks like Jesse Jackson, Jeremiah Wright and al Sharpton have been working hard (and lining their pockets) to advance black Americans for decades. The fact that they have absolutely no progress should be overlooked because......well because they are black.

    I believe responsible, caring Americans are primarily concerned about LACK OF PROGRESS, as well as lack of common sense in the larger PRO BLACK minded black American community.

    BATTLING BLACK AMERICAN CITIZENS


    Sadly, when successful, accomplished American citizen Dr. Shelby Steele, Ph.D, shares TRUTHS about black or American citizens of African descent, he is HATEFULLY denigrated as a "Sell-out" "C^^n" "Race Traitor" and "Uncle Tom" by a large population of "Pro Black, Woke or Conscious Black Community" minded American citizens illogically believing they have a right, as well as duty to LOUDLY demean and intimidate our accomplished, successful black or American friends, neighbors and co-workers of African descent choosing to peacefully pursue THEIR OWN unique vision for L, L, (Love) & Happiness.

    Whatever lack of progress you claim is primarily due to whites.

    Unjust Public Policies Drive the Massive Racial Wealth Gap in America: Study

    The yawning racial wealth gap in the United States is no accident, but rather, driven by unjust public policy decisions—from the re-segregation of education to the redlining of home ownership to poverty wages, according to a new analysis by Brandeis University and the public policy organization Demos.

    Inequalities are vast, note the researchers. For example, Census data shows that, in 2011, median white households in the U.S. held $111,146 in wealth, compared to a mere $7,113 for Black homes and $8,348 for Latino ones.

    These disparities emerge from historical choices on the political and policy levels, the researchers note.

    "The racial wealth gap is large because we instituted it in public policy historically and continue to make public policies that exacerbate the problems," said report coauthor Catherine Ruetschlin, a senior policy analyst at Demos, in a press statement. Therefore, it is vital "to find new opportunities to address the way that we’re constantly perpetuating this disparity between black, white and Latino families," Ruetschlin continued.

    Researchers offer a series of solutions aimed at reversing these trends, from equalizing home ownership to racially integrating schools at all levels. In addition, the study calls for a significant boost to the minimum wage, as well as "making it easier for workers to form and join unions."

    The researchers' focus on poverty pay echoes the growing call from low-wage workers for society to address the role of poverty wages in driving racial inequality.

    "Black and Latino workers are disproportionately likely to be employed in positions that pay the minimum wage or just above and would benefit the most from an increase in the federal minimum wage," the report states.

    The researchers continue, "With new research indicating that minimum wage increases have not reduced employment, a hike in the federal minimum wage from its current low rate of $7.25 would boost the incomes of many of the lowest paid Black and Latino workers and have the potential to decrease the racial wealth gap."
