There's long been a big gap between the wealth of white families and the wealth of African-Americans and Hispanics. But the Great Recession has made it much worse the divide is almost twice what it used to be.

That's according to a new study by the Pew Research Center, which says that the decline in the housing market is the main cause.

The numbers are astounding. The average wealth of a white family in 2009 was 20 times greater than that of the average black family, and 18 times greater than the average Hispanic family. In other words, the average white family had $113,149 in net worth, compared to $6,325 for Hispanics and $5,677 for blacks.

It just isn't fair, Asians always holding us white males down...

Judging from the thread's title, Asians aren't people.

Also, the article is about families, not people.

rich people make more money than poor people

If I was where I would be, then I'd be where I am not, here I am where I must be, where I would be I cannot.

Since Asian could also be geographic, perhaps one could double his income by being a white Asian.

Or, somebody who is African-American and has unusually light skin could move to Asia after becoming a citizen of Mexico!

Booyah! Quadruple income!

According to the graph, and as of 2009, Asians make less than whites.

The average Asian net worth dropped 90K and the article doesn't mention this/any reasons for it? Um, der.

Also, this is about net worth, as opposed to salaries.

The average NBA player is a few skin shades darker than me and makes more in like a month than I do in a year.

the average asian person i've met (mostly filipinos) tends to have bought a new house in the last 10 or less years, investing heavily in nicer houses. of course, with the big drop, many of them are upside down now, and this despite working hard and saving. i think the real estate crisis hurt the asians disproportionately because on average they had a bigger home investments made more recently. it's just tough, in terms of timing.

I think most people make more money than you, Raccoon. Raccoons tend to have a hard time meeting their job requirements.

Raccoonist! You have no idea the burdens that we noble and proud raccoons face on a daily basis.
