Study: Little Progress for African-American Men on Racial Equality Since 1970
In recent years, the U.S. has celebrated the 50th anniversaries of the March on Washington, the Civil Rights Act and a number of other landmark accomplishments considered pivotal in making the U.S. a better place for African Americans.
But despite a deep reverence for those accomplishments, a new studysuggests that African-American men today face such high levels of unemployment and incarceration that they are in little better position when compared with white men than a half-century ago.
The working paper, by University of Chicago researchers Derek Neal and Armin Rick, is based on preliminary findings and has not yet been peer-reviewed.
