- The fear of having children when you know they’ll face racism – “My partner and I know that any child of ours would face an education system that unfairly punishes and suspends students who look like them. They would live in a city in which only about six in 10 students graduate from high school—and this number is even lower for Black students.

Black adults are twice as likely as white peers to experience unemployment.”
