Biden’s strategy to narrow the racial wealth gap

President Biden's plan, announced in Tulsa, Oklahoma, yesterday, aims to address discrimination in housing access and value for Black Americans.

And, it's been a little more than a week since a host of nations in Europe told airlines not to fly over Belarusian airspace. A punishment like that leaves millions of dollars hanging in the balance.
