There is certainly a correlation between race and economics when it comes to communities within the United States. A moderate working class white community will change into an upper middle class Black community. It will be prestigious for a while and then it will be targeted by bad policy and over the years erosion starts to sit in and then crime invades its core. The crime gets so bad that property values start declining and the quality of life becomes pitiful. In a few decades you have what is known as a “golden ghetto”. The final act is drug infestation. Why does this happen?
