There’s been a lot of discussion about wealth in America this week. The following video is a great illustration of how the wealth is distributed in this country. The results are depressing. the video come son the heels of new reports that state that the wealth gap between blacks and whites in America has tripled since the Reagan era. Reading that report and then watching the short video below should give really give some perspective on where we stand as a community in this country. While it may appear that some of us are doing very well, it’s obvious we have a long way to go.
I’ll spare myself the time of repeating all the numbers and even the determining factors mentioned in the article. While looking at the video, race is never mentioned. However, we all know who falls on the bottom. What i especially loved about the video was how it illustrated just how much closer to the poor than they are to the rich and wealthy. I point that out for those “ten-per-centers” who feel a sense of arrival to the elite. This video really puts into perspective just how far the elite is from our grasp, and also how the rest of us are being crushed under the weight of their wealth! Thoughts?!
