Fast-growing numbers of blacks, many from other countries or states, serving to widen income gap

 


Rapid growth in Minnesota’s black population may well explain what appeared at first to be a sudden drop in that group’s prosperity.

The number of black residents increased by nearly 40,000 in just the past four years, a bigger increase than occurred in the state’s white population.

The number of people who reported difficulty speaking English also jumped sharply in a single year, providing one of the clearest indicators of why median black household income slumped between 2013 and 2014.
