Did you know:

Black youth are 3 times more likely to be arrested than White youth, and
6 times more likely to be detained in Massachusetts.

'Poverty' is more often seen as evidence of 'neglect' in Black families than White. A disproportionately large number of children of color live in foster care.

Research confirms the stabilizing influence of intergenerational wealth and that Black families have often been excluded from well known governmental programs designed to build that wealth: low cost mortgages, property rights, educational opportunities, connections...

The household median net worth of Black families is $8.00 vs. $247,500 for whites in Boston.
"African Americans have been living in a burning building for many years, choking on the smoke as flames burn closer and closer. Racism in America is like dust in the air. It seems invisible -- even if you're choking on it-until you let the sun in. Then you see it everywhere."
