Number ONE The shocking, immoral disparity in wealth. That, and that alone, has brought on – and sustains – all the bad that has happened to the country in recent years. Thoughtful, truly concerned people would forget any other issue, no matter how significant it might be, in order to concentrate all their time and energy on this one, vitally important, problem.

"U.S. Census Shows Economic Inequality Continues to WidenNew government data shows economic inequality continued to widen in the United States last year. The Census Bureau reports the richest Americans increased their share of total wealth by 4.9 percent, while the median income reached its lowest level since 1995. Some 46.2 million Americans were classified as living in poverty. The census also shows that the number of uninsured in the United States dropped for the first time in the three years, with 1.3 million people obtaining insurance."

“We owned slaves. It was what was done, and so that is what we did.”

We, not a single one of us Negroes, would have done what we were not allowed to do.”

From “The Known World” by Edward P. Jones
