African Americans, Hispanics, Asian Americans, Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, and other Pacific Islanders who represent 25% of the population in the U.S. do not benefit from the same health, economic, educational and environmental status as other groups.
These ethnicities experience higher rates of diseases, disability, and death and lower survival rates than other nationalities in addition to large income inequality. 50% of Aids/HIV patients are African Americans but only account for 13% of the total U.S. population. Heart disease is the leading cause of death with racial and ethnic minorities most affected.
According to the New York Times on July 22, 2014, the “richest 1% in the U.S. now own more wealth than the bottom 90%.” The gap between the rich and poor is at its highest level in decades and is in some part a result of globalization, policy reforms; computerization, automation and increased technology; ethnic/gender discrimination, and nepotism.
Even though the U.S. spends 39% more on education per students in primary and secondary schools than other countries, there are drastic differences between educational outcomes of white students and students of color. This contrast stems from the environment. Black children are more likely to live in low-income, extremely poor and food-insecure households where parents don’t have secure employment. Blacks also have the greatest rate of families with children living in homeless shelters. These conditions perpetuate layers of additional challenges to include emotional trauma due to neglect, and susceptibility to abuse. Lack of education leads directly to lower incomes, which feeds into the school-to-prison pipeline.
Impoverished nationalities are more likely affected by psychological and hazardous poisons that directly influence livelihood and health; such as economical and social uncertainty, and environmental toxins. Often these conditions result in an increased rate of infant/adult mortality, homicide, teenage childbearing, exposure to tobacco and alcohol advertising, and increased exposure to air pollution. These circumstances are destructive and hinder long term growth. In the next three decades racial and ethnic minority populations are projected to become half of the U.S. population. Therefore, we must work together to reappropriate resources in order to level the playing field before it is too late.
