Losing Ground: Race and Social Progress in Colorado
When it comes to income, poverty, education and homeownership, the gaps between minorities -- particularly, African-Americans and Latinos -- and whites in Colorado are worse now than they were before the Civil Rights movement.
For example, in 1970 African American and Latino families in Colorado earned about 74 percent of what white families earned. Forty years later, it has dropped to between 50 and 60 percent.
