WASHINGTON D.C. — Recent data acquired from the U.S. Census Bureau shows that African Americans making more than $75,000 a year still live in poorer neighborhoods than white people who make much less money.

USA Today reports:

The average affluent black and Hispanic household — defined in the study as earning more than $75,000 a year — lives in a poorer neighborhood than the average lower-income non-Hispanic white household that makes less than $40,000 a year.

“Blacks are segregated and even affluent blacks are pretty segregated,” says Logan, who analyzed 2005-09 data for the nation’s 384 metropolitan areas. “African Americans who really succeeded live in neighborhoods where people around them have not succeeded to the same extent.”
