Black Children and Poverty

Poverty has fallen for kids in White, Hispanic and Asian families in the last five years, but not for Black children, according to a new study from the Pew Research Center.

About 38% of Black children are still living below the poverty line, according to Pew‘s study of Census data, and Black kids are still about four times as likely as White or Asian kids to grow up poor. And for the first time since 1974, there are more poor Black kids (4.2 million) than poor White kids (4.1 million), even though there are three times as many White children in America.
