(The study did not include households of other races or ethnic groups, such as Asian, Native American, Caribbean, Mexican, African, Middle Eastern, Southeast Asian, because the populations are too small to produce statistically significant results.)

No, I think if you included those people your careful narrative begins to fall apart.

What is wrong with income inequality. Shouldn't people that work hard and focus on education get more money? Maybe we should have some Affirmative action in sports since asians and mexicans are under represented in the NBA.

Yeah 2x and 16x are so "close together". They're almost an order of magnitude apart. If you take slope of each of those curves then you will eventually see that it's practically the same. From there you can reasonably assume

  • A higher based paying job (maybe from I don't know.. college education/experience/no felonies... just a guess)
  • The ability to save their money and invest in their future --> (but our national saving rate is near zero, so you would assume it affects the lower brackets more)

Or as Einstien would say Compounding Interest.

Or, how I would say it : Poor people stay poor from making poor decisions with their money.

There is a difference between income and wealth. Income is earned in the short term, wealth is built up in the long term. Both have gaps but it does nothing constructive to try and interchange the two.

Iq, overlay the maps of iq, wealth, and violent crime. You will see a lot of similarities.

That happens when you go out and get an education and a job and then show up at that job and then save and invest that money instead of spending it on stupid shit.

As a disclaimer, I understand that the article does not give statistics, but I just thought it sounded witty to say. Plus, in this case it appears to be true.

That's because we don't blame others for our shortcomings in life. It's called taking responsibility for our own actions.

EDIT: Allow me to clarify for some of those who seemed to have misunderstood. As a non-Jewish white skinned male, the fact that the average Jewish household may have more than 16x my income does not outrage me. This does not outrage me because I don't blame others for my shortcomings in life. I take full responsibility for my own actions.

You mean it's called, you lied. Yep, your sure did.

Well because Jews are

-now 8 decades in/forcing the world to take responsibility for HaShoah. Yet, Jews are the first ones to tell darkskinned-Blacks to silence it re: racism's eternal effects of the U.S. Slave Trade.

-Ashkenazim. Especially if they are living affluently in, America, which translates into them being Caucasoid. Which means, their White privilege reigns.

-well known for their good ol' boy networks, which seek to advance their own kind. We can delve into many, many impactful elements and forces to verify this factual reality.

So, yes. Jews hath in fact set the world record for success-in-benefiting by blaming others and then forcing them to take responsibility for their actions therefore you are dead wrong here my friend.

...

Now in terms of the racial wealth gap, this hath been Americans' plan and hope, for 150 years.

-America knew this was the end result, of decades in employment racial-discrimination.
-America knew this was the end result of decades in financial institution's racial-discrimination against Blacks seeking to improve life.
-America knew this was the end result, of ensuring Blackfolk own no Industries dictate no Markets and control no Culture.
-America knew this was the end result, back when ending Slavery, and extending Black slaves no assets no monies no power no respect and worst of all they got none, nope, not even one yard of the Land which they'd just spent 300 years toiling in to make America great.

Which is why today you never see Blacks on tv shows where heirlooms are being auctioned off nor when you here of Whitefolks now enjoying huge inheritances from yesteryears ancestors' days.

And within all of that, we all have duped each other into thinking this racist dilemma is all The Black Man's fault. Nobody did this to him, but himself.

Yes, it is the exact criterion which moved us into the #1 slot among the MOST HATED nations on Earth.

Median Wealth, good thing they counted all those white billionaires. Along with that there are more whites on welfare than blacks.

Mean = average, the commonly used measure that adds up everyone and divides by number of people Median = middle, the measure used when large outliers make average a less useful measure, line everyone up from smallest to largest and pick the dude in the middle, removes the effect of outliers. Mode = most common, line everyone up and pick the ones that are the most alike, not used a ton but good to know about.

Median is the right measure and doesnt include millionaires. They are half right in that historical discrimination made it difficult to succeed, they are arguing the case far too late because we have already addressed the issues.

You can't close that gap. From my observations, an average black man always has to act like he's a big pimp. Whether its leaving a string offspring he has no interest in taking responsibility for or spending beyond his means. He always is "a mean mutha" and the number one priority in his life.

usually the white man starts getting serious about life after 25. At some point he meets a girl to marry and makes a commitment. Then once the children start arrive he get's really serious. A good white man will start the life long self sacrifice. He will put his family number one until the day he dies.

Lets be easy on the confirmation bias, I have no problem recognizing idiots as idiots, but lets compare apples to apples, I know plenty of white people who popped out kids for lack of brains and who wouldnt be providing for them if the state gave them an option. There are also black men who put their family first.

I wish there was a way for white men to talk to each other about being good white men. So many young white men take their cues from the J**media and end up wasting their lives.

Self Sacrifice, Commitment, Education, Love, Hard Work, Humility, Ambition, Curiosity, Kindness, Charity, Sobriety. That's a good list for young white males.
