The Color Of Wealth: Behind The U.S. Racial Wealth Divide
By Meizhu Lui, Barbara Robles, Betsy Leondar Wright, Rose Brewer and Rebecca Adamson, with United for a Fair Economy.
For every dollar owned by the average white family in the United States, the average family of color has less than a dime. This book explains how laws and government wealth building programs have benefited white Americans and deliberately by-passed people of color. This accessible book shares the asset-building histories of Native Americans, Latinos, African Americans, Asian Americans and European Americans.
