Black People : From 1992 to 2013, the Median Net Worth of Blacks Who Finished College Dropped Nearly 56%

Economists emphasize that college-educated blacks and Hispanics over all earn significantly more
and are in a better position to accumulate wealth than blacks and Hispanics who do not get degrees.
Graduates’ median family income in 2013 was at least twice as high, and their median family
wealth (which includes resources like a home, car and retirement account) was 3.5 to 4 times
greater than that of nongraduates. But while these college grads had more assets, they suffered
disproportionately during periods of financial trouble.

From 1992 to 2013, the median net worth of blacks who finished college dropped
nearly 56 percent (adjusted for inflation). By comparison, the median net worth of
whites with college degrees rose about 86 percent over the same period, which
included three recessions
— including the severe downturn of 2007 through 2009, with its
devastating effect on home prices in many parts of the country. Asian graduates did even better,
gaining nearly 90 percent.

Whites who drop out of High school do better than Black college graduates
Whites who get out of prison do better than Black college graduates

College for black and brown is a rackett to get them in Debt so that they can seize their Tax returns for 20 plus years

Fact is if you're black with a degree you're going to be better off than being black without a degree. As far as debt goes people need to apply some common sense. I could have gone to a private college for 4 years at a cost of $25K per year plus another $15K per year in accommodation plus at least $60K in lost earnings for those 4 years; total cost almost a quarter of a million dollars! Or as I did I could get a part time job and head off to community college part time to get an AAS for a total cost of under $4K. When I finally graduate I should have zero debt; the piece of mind from that I wouldn't exchange for a fancier diploma with debts I'm still going to be paying off as I wave my own grandchildren off to college.

Could this be an issue of financial management and asset diversification?
In part, I think it could be financial management. I kinda believe too many Blacks are not vested in the value of good credit. Good credit goes a long way in the financial crisis. Asset diversification? Requires assets.

We are in a new era. Those facts give us evidence we can reach the Melanin Tipping Point just by telling the truth. The Melanin Tipping Point is the point at which we go from healing to healed. Mchakato wa Uponyaji is the process of healing. Melanin Is Worth More Than Gold. That fact puts us in a different state mentally. It affects different people differently. What is certain is the Ubuntu paradigm is returning.
Melanin is worth more than gold. The Red, Black and Green is 100 years old. The Afric, official currency of the United States of Africa is worth over $2.

Hello Moon Child, it's been a few years since we talked. Please let me know if you can do my chart for me, thank you. I'm in transition and really could help with some interpretations.
