The following story demonstrates the effects of institutional racism.

"Disparities in socioeconomic measures exist to some degree nationwide. However, in certain cities, gaps in outcomes along racial lines are chasmic. 24/7 Wall St. created an index based on racial disparities in eight socioeconomic measures in U.S. metro areas to identify the worst cities for black Americans.

In an interview with 24/7 Wall St., Camille M. Busette, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, laid out some of the causal factors behind these disparities in the cities on this list. “Looking historically, these are cities where there is a tremendous amount of residential segregation,” Busette said.

The cities on this list are largely concentrated in the Midwest and have long histories of systemic racial segregation. Though about half a century has passed since the Fair Housing Act legally banned discriminatory lending, zoning, and renting practices, such practices persist in much of the country in less overt ways."
The Worst Cities For Black Americans

The unemployment rate for black Americans fell below 6.0% for the first time in history earlier this year. The historic dip in joblessness was a benchmark of progress in the continued pursuit of racial equality in the United States -- and a reminder of the unique challenges black Americans face every day.

The black unemployment rate has hovered above the overall unemployment rate by several percentage points since the Bureau of Labor Statistics began tracking it over 40 years ago. Racial disparities in America do not stop with the labor market.

The median annual income among black households in the United States is just $36,651, about $24,000 shy of the median income among white households. Black Americans are also less likely to own a home, less likely to have a college education, and five times more likely to be incarcerated than white Americans.
These are the 15 worst cities for black Americans

Of course the the unemployment rate for black Americans fell below 6.0% for the first time in history earlier this year. And thank you for giving President Trump the credit for that.

Oh...wait...

You didn't.

Honestly, lets Keep it REAL!

For more than a century, hasn't a significant population of PRO BLACK minded American citizens been loudly advocating for segregation?

Back-to-Africa movement - Wikipedia

I become sad and angry when witnessing my peaceful, free-thinking black American neighbors being TAUNTED, BULLIED, DENIGRATED, HARASSED as "Sell-Outs, C00ns or Uncle Toms", and in some instances threatened with violence by hateful, illogical thinking PRO BLACK Americans.

Frankly, I'm looking forward to the un-evolved PRO BLACK Back-to-Africa crowd returning to Africa, along with their HATE and apparent taste for drama and human dysfunction....leaving our peaceful, responsible black or American friends, neighbors and co-workers of African descent free of PRO BLACK hate and impediments that currently seek to deprive peaceful black American citizens from pursuing THEIR OWN individual unique vision for L, L, (Love) and Happiness.

As for POVERTY mentioned in the MSN writing:​

Peace.

Awww... How quaint. Having a sad because you want to be around more white people; but they don’t want to be around you.... kinda pathetic really...most intelligent people want to be around like minded people with similar values and principles. And for whom the association is mutually self beneficial...

The fields I work in are dominated primarily by white males. I been around white people most of my working life and during college. And while some of them may very well not want to be around me for whatever reason, tough shit for them because I have the right to be where I want to be if I qualify. And contrary to popular belief, most of them don't care about my race, only my contributions to our team's effort. I've had many valued business, professional and personal relationships and have mentored and been mentored by them. It's always been this way.

Very true but apparently where you're lacking.
