Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

U.S. Racial Gap Widens, Prospects for Reconciliation dim | Huffingtonpost
Sixty years after the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a "separate but equal" doctrine that reinforced segregation, almost a quarter of Americans say it is okay to have a nation where the races are separate as long as they have equal opportunities.
FACTS ON ETHNIC ELDERS: Study Shows Racial Gap in Pension, Retirement Savings - New America Media
“People of color face particularly severe challenges in preparing for retirement,” states a new report titled, “Race and Retirement Insecurity in the United States,” by the National Institute on Retirement Security (NIRS). Although every demographic group faces significant risks, says the analysis, “Americans of color are significantly less likely than whites to have an employer-sponsored retirement plan or an individual retirement account (IRA), which substantially drives down the level of retirement savings.” In a live webinar last week NIRS Research Manager Nari Rhee stated, that unless the United States addresses the paucity of retirement resources, “I think we’re in real trouble.”  - New America Media
Racial Gap In Infant Mortality Rate Persists; Unpredictable Trend Continues To Mystify Investigators
As American society advances, the stubbornly persistent infant mortality gap between whites and African-Americans may now be explained mostly by known gaps in knowledge, factors science cannot yet observe. A new study from Michigan State University looks at that gap during the past generation, analyzing 50 million U.S. birth certificates from 1983 to 2004. While U.S. health officials say the gap continues to narrow, the statistical differences remain stark and stubborn with policymakers unable to make significant progress.
Inequality: An Essential Reader | The Poverty Line, What Matters Today | BillMoyers.com
Inequality in America: How bad is it? In 2011, Mother Jones published a series of charts capturing the depth of inequality in the US, which remains one of the best big-picture looks at the problem out there. We have greater inequality of accumulated wealth than income, and University of California sociologist William Domhoff’s “Who Rules America” provided the details. In The Atlantic, Max Fisher offered a map of global inequality that named the US among the most unequal wealthy countries, and Mark Gongloff reported in the Huffington Post about a study that found that we have the fastest growth in inequality in the developed world. Thomas Shapiro, Tatjana Meschede and Sam Osoro wrote a brief on the black/ white wealth gap at the Institute on Assets and Social Policy, and Brookings’ Benjamin Harris and Melissa Kearny offered 12 facts about America’s struggling lower middle class.
