Latinos estamos más jodidos hoy según las estadísticas de PEW!

August 23, 2011

Colonialism or freedom!

For U.S.  white Americans the recent recession 2005 to 2009 was just a minor discomfort media pundits say many accumulated more wealth in its aftermath.

Yet for Latinos, African-Americans and Asians it was  worse  than a tsunami, a devastating  impact upon the future  of these communities.

While, the white-minority gulf had widen, the white median house-hold wealth fell by a mere 16 percent for Latinos it fell 66%,   Asians 54%, and blacks 53%. What a dive! And the net worth of white households was 20 times greater than black households, 18 greater than Latinos households.

“As a result of the declines, the median black household had just $5,677 in wealth in 2009, while the median Hispanic household had $6,325. The median white household had $113,149.” in 2009.

And the Gawker blog wrote, “there has quite literally never, in this generation, been a better time to be a white American, economically speaking.”
