Black Middle Class
"All of the information that we have shows that middle class blacks live in neighborhoods that on many measures are more disadvantaged the poor whites. So, more disadvantaged than poor whites, not just more disadvantaged than middle class whites... When I say that I mean still living in neighborhoods with higher poverty, with more crime, with less political clout, less well funded schools, less public investment and it's that comparison that is really stark."
