Problems with Black gender wage gap

The wage gap wars are heating up in earnest, particularly as Republican presidential hopefuls stake out the hardest right positions they can find while Democrats stand ready to use the issue against them next year. But as Black women brace for a dizzying onslaught of white feminists leaving them out of the debate, recent data reveal a gaping wage gap detail that makes it much more complicated: Black men.


If you’ve been watching, front-runners in a fast-crowding 2016 GOP pack dismiss the wage gap as either too speculative or too expensive for businesses to even matter. Lone presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, eager to win over the woman vote, drew some fire from the right when she recently cited a World Economic Forum study showing “the United States is 65th out of 142 nations and other territories on equal pay.”



Yet, if current wage gap figures were exclusively focused on the earnings distance between Black men and women, the United States would find itself ranked in the Top 10 of advanced gender-equal global economies. A recently released spring 2015 study by the American Association of University Women discovered a median annual pay gap of only 9 percent between African-American men and women. On average, Black men earn less than $38,000 year while Black women earn a little over $33,000.

That’s in stark contrast to white male and female pay gaps – but not for obvious reasons. Instead, we discover a vast 22 percent difference between white male and female pay, an average of $52,452 per year versus $41,010.

And while, on the surface, we see smaller gender pay gaps within the Black community, it’s really not all that rosy.

The problem is that a smaller Black gender wage gap is an advanced indicator of much more serious economic and financial hemorrhaging within the larger Black community. Baltimore just snapped the entire nation back into that conversation. Black women, compared to other populations, may be almost completely caught up with their male peers by average income, but it’s happening at a time of dangerous economic decline for Black men, the traditional community partner (for better and for worse).


Hence, a disappearing Black wage gap could certainly be explained by the rising educational and economic gains of Black women – but, in terms of the Black population as a whole, those gains are offset by persistent socio-economic challenges including poverty, Black male unemployment and incarceration.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
