Oregon Fails One Test Of Racial Equality


It is entirely possible that we are aware of racial disparities in American society more now than at any time in our history.

WalletHub, which takes many measures of the country's economy and society, checks in with measurements of Civic Engagement Racial Equality, in 48 states and the District of Columbia. California finished in the middle of the pack at #22.

Oregon can thank Wisconsin for saving it from last place. Why such a flunk on this test? WalletHub's Jill Gonzalez visits once again with the numbers behind the grade.
