"The federal government, according to a December 2012 Reuters investigation of federal contracting, “is one of the most potent factors driving income inequality in the United States - especially in the nation’s capital.” The remarkable three-part series, which looks at how government exacerbates inequality nationwide, not just in capital, says, “The top 5 percent of households in Washington, D.C., made more than $500,000 on average [in 2011], while the bottom 20 percent earned less than $9,500 - a ratio of 54 to 1.”"

"There are a couple of things to note about this research. First and foremost is the somatic, bodily impact of racism on those who experience it.  Second, the overly cautious academic language of “perceived racism” undermines the voices and experiences of those in the studies who shared their experiences with researchers, relegating them to the realm of “perception,” the truth of which is to be determined later and by someone else, more removed, objective, and whiter.
Finally, what struck me about this research was that it’s framed within the language of health disparities in which the focus is always on African American, Latino, Asian and Native American folk. This is fine as far as it goes, as when it highlights the unequal burden placed on some when it comes to health."
