The Racial Wealth Divide Is Vast, But It Doesn’t Have To Be

| Podcast

In a new report, “Dreams Deferred: How Enriching the 1% Widens the Racial Wealth Divide,” researchers at the Institute for Policy Studies outline how the racial wealth gap has widened over the past thirty years and how this fits the long term pattern of systemic racism. We speak with one of the authors, Sabrina Terry, about the findings in the report and recommendations for closing the wealth divide. We report live from Caracas, Venezuela where the United States is continuing its aggressive efforts at regime change.

    It doesn’t have to be.

    The left could actually stop inculcating government dependence.

    Yes, the government could stop corporate welfare, tax cuts for the wealthy and the shredding of the social safety net. Those would be good first steps.
