• Black Wealth Matters, Why We Should All Care About The Racial Wealth Gap

    The national media coverage of the domestic terrorism inflicted upon black and brown people in the past couple of weeks has renewed protests, social medial sharing, and even in some cases rioting. We have been inundated with hashtags such as #Blacklivesmatter, #Sayhername, #Nojusticenopeace, and many more. The issue of police brutality is one that so upfront and pervasive, that even some of the quietest voices and corporate brands have begun to speak up. However, there is another issue that directly affects black communities in silent and profound ways. This is the issue of the wealth gap between white people and black people. I am going to call it #blackwealthmatters.
