“Like in other parts of the Midwest, large numbers of African Americans travelled to the Milwaukee area in the 1960s to take advantage of the booming manufacturing industry. Soon after a black community formed, however, the city’s industrial base all but collapsed, contributing to racial disparities in the region. An estimated 16.7% of the Milwaukee-Waukesha-West Allis metro area identify as black, higher than the nationwide proportion. In Milwaukee proper, however, roughly 40% of the population identifies as black.
A recent report from researchers at UCLA found that African-American high school students were more likely to be suspended in Wisconsin than in any other state. The plight of students in the Milwaukee area — the worst city for black Americans — is perhaps even worse. The difference between white and black high school attainment in the area, at 94.9% and 80.7% the respective adult populations, is 14.2 percentage points, nearly double the national average disparity. White area households are relatively wealthy compared to the nation, with a median income of $61,675. Black area households, on the other hand, are relatively poor, with a median income of just $25,646. This was one of the nation’s largest income disparities.” http://247wallst.com/special-report/2015/10/06/the-worst-cities-for-black-americans/#ixzz3oMGvqJdX
- WISCONSIN ELECTED POLITICIANS – WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT THIS TRAGEDY?
- CAN’T YOU DO A BETTER JOB OF REPRESENTING WISCONSIN DISINFRANDISED PEOPLE LIVING IN THE STATE?
- REMEMBER THESE STATE STATS. THEY FOLLOW YOU WHEN YOU TRAVEL ON STATE BUSINESS OUTSIDE OF OUR STATE.
FURTHERMORE, IF THESE STATS ARE A FEATHER IN YOUR HAT – YOU ARE DOING A GRET JOB!
Do not think the word “Gret” is a misspelling of the word great?
“Who is the most pathetic person you’ve ever come across in an MMORPG? Let me tell you about gret”
There is nothing “great” about leaders of humanity discounting others left in despair, TM.
