This Restaurant Charges White Customers More To Make A Powerful Point

By Mustafa Gatollari

Wealth disparity is a big issue in the United States with the top 1% of US Citizens holding about 38% of the country's resources.

That being said, there are some people who definitely enjoy greater levels of privilege thanks to getting a great economic boost early on life. My family is by no means well off, but growing up, I was able to borrow a few hundred dollars from my dad if my car needed repairs before pay day, have a co-signer for student loans (which, in hindsight, was a total waste), getting rides to a job interview if I was in a jam, etc. Even with the little my family had, I had a bit of a extra help that lots of other people don't have access to.
