Extensive Data Shows Punishing Reach of Racism for Black Boys


A recent New York Times article investigated the longterm class outcomes for different racial identities. The data shows that, “Black boys raised in America, even in the wealthiest families and living in some of the most well-to-do neighborhoods, still earn less in adulthood than white boys with similar backgrounds.”

This study shows that class advantage does not buy Black people out of racism and that racism affects every class level Black people inhabit.
