Nationwide, the typical black household earns just 61 cents for every dollar the typical white household earns. Despite the achievements of the Civil Rights Movement more than five decades ago, there exist substantial inequalities along racial lines in America.
Lower incomes, educational attainment, and homeownership among black Americans, as well as higher poverty, unemployment, incarceration, and mortality all contribute to racial inequality in the United States. In some of America’s largest metro areas, discriminatory policy, racial bias, and a history of oppression have deepened such inequalities and widened the gap between black and white residents in a variety of socioeconomic measures.
To determine the worst cities for black Americans, 24/7 Wall St. created an index based on disparities in each city between black and white residents in various socioeconomic measures. Many of the cities with the worst racial inequalities are in the Midwest and Northeast.
Here are the worst 5 cities on the list:
5. Niles-Benton Harbor, Mich.

In a passionate speech on Feb. 28, 2017, Julius Malema, leader of the Economic Freedom Fighters, encouraged members of South Africa’s Parliament to stand for radical change and take back their land from the whites.
Malema encouraged the people to vote in favor of amending the constitution in order to allow the land to be expropriated without compensation. Whites originally took the land during colonialism and still own a majority of it. Malema incited Black people to fight against the white dominance and take back the land that is theirs.
This Atlanta Black Star video highlights the EFF’s determined efforts to return to Black South Africans that which is rightfully theirs.
