This blog is an attempt to figure out what are America’s most significant problems by trying to put a number on each. Historically, one of our biggest problems has been racism. I’ve already put a number on legal issues caused by racism. In this post, I try to put a number on the economic issues. As you will see, the economic issues are large. Black and Native American families have less income than White families. It is significant, to both the people involved and the country as a whole. And it is not getting better.

Racism is hard to measure…
