JEC Ranking Democrat Carolyn Maloney speaks following a forum on: The American Dream on Hold: Economic Challenges Facing African Americans. See press release: http://1.usa.gov/1TMhifN "The numbers are stark: African Americans are three times more likely to live in poverty than whites. The current employment rate for blacks is more than double the rate for whites – higher even than white unemployment at its peak during the recession. And the median white household has 13 times the wealth of the median black household. The recent racial tragedies in Baltimore, Ferguson, New York, Charleston and elsewhere have opened new dialogue about race. Let us seize that opportunity to make sure that every American has a real opportunity to succeed.”
