Sunday Snippets: I'm a Godmomma!

My new goddaughter, Zora, came into the world Thursday night after almost 22 hours of labor. It was an honor to be in the room. And today is also my brothers' 21st birthdays. I remember when they were born too!

The lives of black Americans are better than they were half a century ago. The humiliation of Whites Only signs are gone. Rates of black poverty have decreased.

Patrick Sharkey, a sociologist at New York University, studied children born from 1955 through 1970 and found that 4 percent of whites and 62 percent of blacks across America had been raised in poor neighborhoods. A generation later, the same study showed, virtually nothing had changed. And whereas whites born into affluent neighborhoods tended to remain in affluent neighborhoods, blacks tended to fall out of them.
