18. African-Americans were hard hit by the 2008 bank bail out

Both African-American men and women have been harder hit than white females.

In the cases of both race and gender, the legacy of slavery continues to impact people, whether the slavery was based upon race or gender.

The commonality between all African-Americans and all women is that both groups, in American society, were not simply considered second-class citizens, they were considered property.
