The Worst States For Black Americans

08/05/2016 06:23 pm ET

The Civil Rights and Voting Rights Acts of 1965 made great strides toward racial equality. However, this legislation ― ending decades of government-sponsored racial oppression and intended to reverse the effects of hundreds of years of slavery ― by no means resolved racial inequality in the United States.

Racial differences in the United States are prevalent regardless of geography. While social and economic gaps are wider in some states than in others, the gaps exist across all areas, and we were unable to identify any states where black Americans are better off than white residents. For this reason, we expanded last year’s list of the 10 worst states for black Americans to include all 50 states.

Across virtually all social and economic measures, there are wide racial disparities. Compared to white people in the United States, African Americans are considerably less likely to own their homes, twice as likely to be unemployed, nearly three times as likely to live in poverty, and five times more likely to go to prison.

if Hillary is already elected and selecting judges, how can the 2nd Amnd crowd stop her?

Not by voting... All the people defending DT's rhetoric with this bullshit explanation are soft-peddling a call to assassinate a President Hillary Clinton. They've lost ALL credibility here.

DT spoke from the prospect of being the loser of an election... Basically, he was speaking from his resentment of being a loser.

He is a loser.

Apparently, the Trump-luvin' GOPrs are in the denial stage right now

We're still waiting for the Trump-hatin' GOPrs to finish with bargaining.

November can't come soon enough to put the Republican Party out of its misery.

What's really sad is that they did all of this to themselves, practicaliy begging for it.
