Have Blacks In America Officially
Arrived at Third-World Status?
In Past Four Years, Whites Wealth Widens to 22 Times That of Blacks; Many Blacks in America Can Barely Afford Food, Shelter, Medicine or Educational Enhancements.  We Are In Trouble!


NEW YORK (CNNMoney) -- White Americans have 22 times more wealth than blacks -- a gap that nearly doubled during the Great Recession (2008 through 2012).


In 2005, the net worth difference wasn't quite as stark. Whites had 12 times more wealth than blacks and 8 times more than Hispanics 


The widened wealth chasm could have major ramifications going forward, experts said.


Having less wealth and home equity means it will be more difficult for blacks and Hispanics to send their children to college, which gives them a leg up on landing good jobs, said Roderick Harrison, senior research scientist at Howard University. That will further extend the wealth gap.


"The implications will be with us into the next generation, which will have greater difficulty in getting the kinds of jobs needed to start saving and building wealth," Harrison said.

Wake Up, Black America: We're Sleepwalking Back To Slavery
by Robert. R. Johnson,
RaveJon Inc.
ISBN # 0977359417, $19.95.
Wake Up, Black America has Black Americans coming together from San Francisco to New York City and from Chicago to Natchez, Miss. to discuss problems in our communities and implement strategies to solve these problems.
The book takes a serious look at some of the problems plaguing Black communities today, like Blacks killing Blacks, Black communities, no Black-owned businesses, the state of the Black family, and too many young Blacks not getting an education or working. It also reveals that most Black Americans believe we can solve our own problems once we recognize them and take positive action together. Robert Johnson recently won a Black Excellence Award for this book.

This book can be purchased from, Black bookstores, Dusable Museum and from Mr. Johnson if you want a signed copy

. You can also mail a money orderto Robert R. Johnson, P.O. Box 497338, Chicago, Il. 60649.  E-mail me at WAKE UP BROTHERS & SISTERS WE CAN FIX THIS THIS IS NOT BLACK BASHING. THIS IS VERY SERIOUS REALITY.
