Just think how much more wealth many of those people would have had Barney Franks and the rest of the congresscritters not talked them into believing they could buy houses that anyone in their right mind knew they could not afford.
Democrats have been screwing over minorities since before the Civil War. The greatest con ob they have ever pulled is getting the minorities to believe they have stopped.

People who are trying to make something look worse compare "median" rather than "average" and in this case it's teemed up with the nebulous term "wealth".
Sure, white people are more likely to live in white neighborhoods which are more likely to be worth more than black or hispanic neighborhoods in any given market (with some fairly rare exceptions). And whites are probably more likely to be homeowners both for economic reasons and because the white population is older than the black or hispanic populations, meaning more blacks and hispanics rent, ie have a net worth of their car and clothes.
And as always, "hispanics" is used to mean nonwhite. Tell that to Americans of Cuban ancestry who live in the once Anglo Saxon and Jewish strongholds of Florida and wield considerable (If not directly taxable) wealth.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
