The racial wealth gap is three times greater than the racial income gap. In other words, white people not only have higher incomes, but they are also better positioned to retain that income and build it.

We throw thousands of men in the hole for the books they read, the company they keep, the beliefs they hold. Here's why.

It is well known that Blacks die at earlier ages than whites in the U.S. But, more is at work than poverty and diet. Racism kills, debilitating the body like a poison. “Being poor and uneducated (the two are highly correlated) is bad for your health, but not as bad as being Black.”

Trials that start with all-white jury pools end up finding black defendants guilty 16 percent more often than white defendants. But having just one black person in the jury pool can alter that result, nearly closing the conviction gap.

That’s according to a Duke University-led study released this week, in which researchers examined more than 700 Florida cases.

Nationwide, Black defendants are more likely than their white counterparts to be wrongfully convicted, and defendants charged with crimes against white victims are far more likely to be erroneously convicted than defendants charged with crimes involving nonwhite victims.

1 in 3 Black men have been behind bars in this country. A recent Department of Justice study found "an alarming racial disparity" in police treatment of motorists of color. Black Americans are twice as likely to be arrested during a traffic stop and nearly four times as likely to experience the threat or use of force. Cops regularly pull over black men for minor traffic infractions and then arrest them, while they let white drivers drive on. This system of racial profiling and using prison as a one-size-fits-all solution is one of the reasons Black communities are and will remain economically worse off than the rest of the America. More Black men are imprisoned by this country than were ever enslaved. It's bad enough that the Great Recession has affected Black men more than every other demographic, but our ever expanding prison complex is further decimating the already bleak economic future of Black America.

Roma in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia and Slovakia live in substandard housing conditions. Racism and discrimination pose obstacles to Roma in accessing adequate housing conditions. Discrimination by public officials is apparent not only during the process of forced evictions, but also in access to social housing. Private citizens were also found to have discriminated against Roma. Many Romani communities lack security of tenure; other housing rights violations can arise from this fundamental problem. A significant number of Roma in the target countries live in informal settlements. Local authorities continue to forcibly evict Roma, or disrupt their lives by threatening Romani residents with forced evictions and destruction of their property. Roma face a series of specific obstacles, including lack of information, restrictions and discriminatory criteria, which impede their access to social housing.
