State of the Dream 2010: Drained
Jobless and Foreclosed in Communities of Color
State of the Dream 2010: Drained explores the current racial economic divide in the U.S. in terms of unemployment, income, poverty, net worth, and rate of foreclosures.
In Drained, we discuss the shortcomings of "colorblind," broad-spectrum policies, and the urgent need for targeted policies geared toward lifting up the communities in most need. We highlight this policy approach as key to narrowing the gaping racial income and wealth divides, and to rebuilding the economy as a whole.
