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. 2. Minnesota 3.
