Tami Luhby, writing for CNN, highlighted the widening wealth gap between races. In 2010, the median household net worth for whites was $110,729, whereas the median Hispanic and black household possessed a net worth of $7,424 and $4,955 respectively. The median Asian household net worth was $69,590. However, all three minorities were hit hard by the economic downturn, and from 2005 to 2010 the three minority groups saw their median household income decrease by about 60%. On the other hand, the median white household experienced a drop in net worth of only 23%. Today, white Americans possess 22 times more wealth than blacks, and that disparity has almost doubled since the recession.
