America's Racial Divide
The racial divide in this country is still terrible. According to a new Pew Research Center poll, four-out-of-10 black people don't believe that race relations will ever improve. The poll also states fifty-one percent of blacks polled believe that President Obama has made race relations better, and yet one-third of white America believes that the president has ruined race relations.
Some other staggering facts the center points out include whites having almost 13 times the wealth of their black counterparts, the black unemployment rate today is double that of whites and non-marital births are more than twice as common among blacks as among whites.
