A national report shows blacks and Hispanics haven’t made big gains when it comes to equality
Share Now on:
The National Urban League’s State of Black America report is an equality index that looks at gains and losses across sectors, including economics, health and education. According to the report, if we looked at equality with whites in the United States as a whole pie, black Americans are missing nearly a quarter of it, achieving 72.5 percent equality. And Hispanics would have slightly more, at 79.2 percent equality. This year the report has a new digital inclusion index looking specifically at the technology industry.
