If the racial wealth gap is what is so important then why are so many White folks so bad off recently? The system is designed to screw the majority of non-rich people. Race is irrelevant. This is from 1974. THE SCREWING OF THE AVERAGE MAN By David Hapgood https://www.kirkusreviews.com/...-of-the-average-man/ That book pointed out then that college degrees for everybody was not the answer because supply and demand would just devalue the degrees.

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.

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.

Horrific German nation-killers like to think of themselves as civilized, superior and above African human “animals” and so justify their heartless sub-humanity because they are good machinists.

…. assert that discrimination rooted in individual people is a greater problem than discrimination that is built into our laws and institutions. It’s connected. Discrimination rooted in individual people is a two-way street with “discrimination that is built into our laws and institutions” …..and racist cultural environment at large.
