I could say that we should learn how to apply equality in ourselves.Did you know that there's a video went popular of over the very first weekend of March. Its name, "Wealth Inequality in America," claims it all. It explains, in obvious, accessible images, that the space between the wealthiest and the poorest Americans is far vaster than most people have even imagined. With a personal finance you can pay things instead of taking money out of savings.

Re: How America Built the Racial Wealth Gap

Welcome Rianna! Unfortunately, finance, personal finance and economics is something that most Americans learn at an older age rather than at a young age. African Americans in particular, (IMO), often are just surviving financially, and often that is the primary financial focus , surviving and making ends meet until the next paycheck. It is usually people who were taught from a very young age, the value of money and the importance of saving over spending, manage their finances prudently.
