Racial Inclusion

Posted Friday, September 15, 2006

Racial segregation and discrimination still keep too many black residents from getting the best housing, jobs, education and health care. A recent report showed black people in Cuyahoga County were much more likely than whites to get stuck with a high-interest mortgage, despite their income. Many who want better jobs don’t have access to public transportation to get to them. We’ll talk about racial inequities Friday on 90.3’s The Sound of Ideas.
