    the video is old yet applies today.

    it talks at length about several aspects of racial inequality, cannot list them all.
    For example, between 1991 and 2000, 1 million black people died who would not have died if they had access to typical white people level of living standards and healthcare access.
    Black and latino males are 3 times more likely to be stopped and searched for drugs even though whites are 4.5 times more likely to actually have drugs on them.
    The average white family in america has 12 times the accumulated net worth of the average black family, 8 times the accumulated net worth of the average latino family.

    Just to check a few numbers since this is an old video, i googled "average white family net worth vs black"

    Turns out the video is no longer correct on that matter. The average white family net worth is now 15.6 times larger than the average black family.
