Black income is half that of white households in the US—just like it was in the 1950s

But while progress was underway, African-Americans’ opportunities for economic and professional mobility were extremely limited. That reality was reflected in the vast wealth disparity between black and white households. In 1953, the net worth of the typical black household was just 20% of that of the typical white household, according to a recent  working paper by the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis that offers an unusually long-term look at the evolution of America’s racial gap in household finances.

What was once viewed as a problem by public officials has turned into a “ marketable commodity , ” complete with bitter copyright disputes and PR stunts designed to bait social media influencers.
