Analysis names Racine as third worst in U.S. for black Americans

  • RACINE — After being named the fourth-worst area in the U.S. for black Americans last year, the Racine area has been named the third-worst city this year, according to a recent 24/7 Wall St. article.
    The list was created by Delaware-based financial news and opinion company 24/7 Wall St., and was compiled using data from the U.S. Census Bureau’s 2016 American Community Survey. The study factored in household income, poverty, adult high school and bachelor’s degree attainment, home ownership and unemployment.
    The ranking also used recent data from The Sentencing Project, a nonprofit dedicated to criminal justice reform.

    According to 24/7 Wall St., the 2018 top five worst areas/cities for black Americans, all of which are located in the Midwest, are:
    • Waterloo-Cedar Falls, Iowa
    • Milwaukee-Waukesha-West Allis, Wis.
    • Racine, Wis.
    • Minneapolis, Minn.
    • Peoria, Ill.

    This should come as news to no one. I remember when I returned to Racine in 1991. I thought I was in the Deep South during the Civil War.

    I really hate the fuckers who assume that because you're white, you agree with their racist ways. I've watched a store owner I know serve a black patron with smiles and then utter "nigger" as soon as they're out the door. Those "niggers" are maintaining his business. And he's Asian.
