Really? I never noticed...

I came across an article on MSNBC.com today titled "U.S. report: Racial disparities continue". My first thought was - no kidding. The report details how there is a gap amongst whites, blacks, and hispanics concerning education, income, and home ownership.

Here's a little excerpt:

Decades after the civil rights movement, racial disparities in income, education and home ownership persist and, by some measurements, are growing.

White households had incomes that were two-thirds higher than blacks and 40 percent higher than Hispanics last year, according to data released Tuesday by the Census Bureau.

White adults were also more likely than black and Hispanic adults to have college degrees and to own their own homes. They were less likely to live in poverty.

Now I ask you - Did we really need to do the research? It's not like we didn't already know that. And if you didn't already know this, then I guess this article was made for you. Go, read, learn.
