The article even tries to give her an out, saying it’s not all her fault. It’s just the fault of years of Democratic leadership.
MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesota’s 5th Congressional District, represented by Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, was listed this week as the worst congressional district in the country for black Americans.
The financial website 24/7 Wall Street compiled a list of the 30 worst districts for black Americans by using data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Specifically, the list-makers honed in on metrics like median-household income, homeownership, unemployment, poverty, and educational achievement.
The numbers produce a stark picture of the 5th Congressional District, which encompasses Minneapolis and several surrounding suburbs.
“Black area residents are about four times more likely to live below the poverty line than white residents and three times more likely to be unemployed,” the list-makers noted, citing a legacy of historic racism as a source of the disparities.
