    1. Wisconsin

    > Pct. residents black: 6.2% (24th lowest)
    > Black homeownership rate: 25.8% (10th lowest)
    > Black incarceration rate: 4,042 per 100,000 (3rd highest)
    > Black unemployment rate: 20.8% (the highest)

    Wisconsin is the worst state in the country for black Americans. The median annual income of black households in the state is just $26,053, much lower than the median for black families nationwide and equal to just 46.5% the median income of white Wisconsin households of $56,083. Similarly, while 29.9% of white adults in Wisconsin have at least a bachelor’s degree, 12.8% of black adults in the state have completed college. This is also much lower than the bachelor degree attainment rate among black adults nationwide of 19.7%. Of all the racial disparities found in Wisconsin, the unemployment gap between black and white state residents is perhaps the most troubling. With a white jobless rate of 4.4%, the state’s job market is relatively strong for the white population. For black Wisconsin residents, however, the unemployment rate is more than five times higher times higher, at 20.8% -- the highest among black populations in every other state.

    The only way to get past that problem is to work hard. Both in school and work. Blacks can do it if we really put our minds to it, don't fall for the "stereotypes" that the Caucasians put out.
