We all wear the mask. How long will it last?
Its still garden variety 2D mostly, but here are some charts of various disparities among races:
1) Prison populations:
This site has datasets available, and there is information state by state.
2) life expectancy gap between black and white Americans, but its improving, and it could be eliminated ~2035
3) racial wealth gap, along with home ownership
While trying to avoid the trap of race essentialism and acknowledge the diversity of black experience, it feels like these metrics point in a direction that suggests disadvantage for black and latino people, while also showing improvement over time (e.g. life expectancy). Is it a mirage? Are there flames behind the smoke?
