Okay, First Of All, Money Over Everything Is A Real Concept

Clearly Michael Cohen is a bona fide scapegoat for denialists now, but…

Ah! the vanity and insanity of whiteness.

Again the motivated ignorance surrounding whiteness conflates the resiliency and pseudo profound tolerance of certain blacks with their proactive coping mechanisms utilized in protecting and securing self-interests in the remarkable presence of racism as a means to an end.

Racism may have deleterious effects even when the target does not consciously perceive the maltreatment or attribute it to racism.¹

Yes there is that amount of money and it has made you overlook racism!

Racism is more so structural and less so performative — despite the uptick in overt racism on display with the growing sentiment— in the U.S. today, whereas in the past it was equally and intensively both excruciatingly distressing.

  • The black-white wealth gap has not recovered from the Great Recession. In 2007, immediately before the Great Recession, the median wealth of blacks was nearly 14 percent that of whites. Although black wealth increased at a faster rate than white wealth in 2016, blacks still owned less than 10 percent of whites’ wealth at the median.10
  • Black households have fewer and are in greater need of personal savings than their white counterparts. For a variety of reasons, blacks are more likely to experience negative income shocks but are less likely to have access to emergency savings. As a consequence, blacks are more likely to fall behind on their bills and go into debt during times of emergency.
  • African Americans face systematic challenges in narrowing the wealth gap with whites. The wealth gap persists regardless of households’ education, marital status, age, or income. For instance, the median wealth for black households with a college degree equaled about 70 percent of the median wealth for white households without a college degree. The gap worsens as households grow older. In 2016, blacks between 50 and 65 years old and near retirement had only about 10 percent of the wealth of whites in the same age group. This is down from the approximately 24-percent gap in 1998, when the same groups of people were between 32 and 47 years old.
  • African Americans have fewer assets than whites and are less likely to be homeowners, to own their own business, and to have a retirement account. The most recent data available, from 2016, show that when blacks owned such assets, they were worth significantly less than assets owned by whites.
  • Black households have more costly debt. In 2016, blacks with debt typically owed $35,560 — less than 40 percent of the $93,000 in debt owed by whites. However, because blacks owed larger amounts of high-interest debt — such as installment credit and student and car loans — the debt they typically owed was more expensive. For example, blacks carry larger credit card balances than whites.
