Race, income, and education

2 out of 5 black children are living in poverty - Jul. 14, 2015: "More than half (52%) of Asian adults over 25 have a bachelor's degree, compared to 33% of whites, 19% of blacks and 14% of Hispanics."

Note that education can break someone out of poverty, but in general, young people get bachelor's degrees because of their family's wealth. This is why Sanders was right to support free higher education.
