Slavery ended over a hundred years ago. The civil rights movement was a generation ago. We even had a black president! So why are people still upset about racism?
In this episode of the Paul Vischer Podcast, we look at American history and learn about the many reasons why a huge racial wealth wealth gap exists, including: vagrancy laws, convict leasing, Jim Crow, segregation, redlining, the drug war, and police militarization, and mass incarceration. These factors all influence why the average black household holds only 10% of the wealth that white households have.
We’re asking you to care, listen, and learn.
