Racial Wealth Divide
November 21, 2013
This photo and audio project is a re-telling of a hilarious true story. It makes light of those seemingly trivial interactions that suggest we're not actually living in a post-racial society. Dealing with the economic disparities and social decays that heavily affect communities of color has to start with that collective realization. Race doesn't have to be a big deal. But, it still matters. See United for a Fair Economy's annual State of the Dream reports, released every January in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr., to learn more about the history, current state, and solutions to the growing racial wealth divide.

Housing, a cornerstone of the "American Dream," is the largest form of privately wealth held by families across the United States. This infographic draws attention to the intersection of housing as both a globally-recognized human right and as a commodity in a global stock market controlled by the wealthy. We urge readers to acknowledge the history behind the long-standing racial wealth divide and to consider the interplay between federal housing policies and risky financial practices and their impacts on the divide.
