In 2004, the median net worth of white households was $134,280, compared with $13,450 for black households, according to an analysis of Federal Reserve data by the Economic Policy Institute. By 2009, the median net worth for white households had fallen 24 percent to $97,860; the median black net worth had fallen 83 percent to $2,170, according to the EPI.
Algernon Austin, director of the EPI's Program on Race, Ethnicity and the Economy, described the current wealth gap this way: "In 2009, for every dollar of wealth the average white household had, black households only had two cents."
He'll never go far, not because of this, but because of the stuff he openly says now

Shoulda looked before he leaped, I guess.
(How does a supposed Libertarian end up being leader of a fascistic cult? Inquiring minds want to know.)
honestly though, i'll take a racist, homophobic, anti-womens rights person who will actually do something about the corporatocracy driving america into the ground than a total pussy like obama.
He would kill what little regulation and oversight we currently have in place.
At least they don't sing.
Something along those lines.
@13 He is not really popular, he is just loud.
And also because he's a little troll.
But yeah, Ron Paul bad man. I guess there was one time where he voted in favor of something that is not explicitly authorized in the Constitution, it was for America to recognize Martin Luther King day as a public holiday.
you sound like bill clinton trying to question the definition of the word "is".
the back-bends you are doing to ignore the obvious, don't they hurt?
or do you just prepare yourself for them with some Paul supporter mantra maybe?
The media would like you to believe that HIV is a heterosexual main-stream disease. But, the statistics show different. They always have. It's hard to get funding for something that effects so few people (when compared to other diseases).
So, I can understand that the media would be upset when Dr Paul tries to contradict them with the truth. Does it make him homophobic - No, just honest.
And as for the racist accusations; Ron Paul is a libertarian. He does not lump people into groups like our socialist media. He does not try to pitch battles between groups of people based on their race. Libertarians believe in individual rights and individual freedom.
Look at some major issues that the media is covering up including NDAA, SOPA, Fast and Furious, Fed Bail-Outs, and FEMA Detention Camps. It's all right here on the internet. Take your country back.
Wake up people. You're government and media is lying to you. Ron Paul 2012
