See what people are saying:

“What would happen if everyone in America — black, white, Hispanic, Asian — was on a level playing field? For one, our cities would be richer.” – Tanvi Misra, CityLab

“Cities that have high levels of persity – think Los Angeles, Houston, San Antonio – understandably have more to gain from racial equality. But the research demonstrates that every single city in the list of the biggest 150 metro areas would grow its economy.” – Janie Boschma, National Journal

“Eliminating the racial pay gap requires a lot more work than just ending outright discrimination – improving education and job training, ending the justice system’s racial bias, providing affordable access to decent health care, finally passing immigration reform, etc.” – Tom McKay,

“Demographics themselves are rapidly changing. As the country inches closer to becoming majority-minority, the potential economic benefits of racial equality will grow. Or, rather, the cost of inequality will grow, too.” – Emily Badger, The Washington Post Wonkblog
