Summary
Now considered a classic in the exploration of wealth, race, and inequality, Black Wealth/White Wealth provides systematic empirical evidence that explains how wealth - as opposed to income - disparity shapes inequality between blacks and whites. Compelling and also informative, the books doesn't just present pioneering research. It is also a powerful counterpoint to arguments against affirmative action and a direct challenge to current social welfare policies that are tilted towards the wealthy
