If current trends continue, one in three black men are expected to spend time in prison at some point in their lives. The Great Recession wiped out twice as much black wealth as it did white, and the raw numbers are even more stark: Post-recession median household wealth for a white family in 2014 was almost $142,000, down from $192,500. The median wealth for black households has fallen to $11,000 from $19,200. There are 1.5 million black men “missing” in America, because they are either dead of in prison.
There is something so wrong with this reality.
