There is one however, and it is the level of education they have. I plan to go through with my Master's Degree at some point and many of the people who lead my community including council people, the mayor the police chief and department heads also have high levels of education.

If I could change any inequality in my community I would change the fact that there are two African-American city employees out of 300 total workers.

I would do it with a drive to recruit people of color and encourage them to apply for open positions. I would require them to have educations equal to the average education of other city employees. I would change it so that the face of our town reflected the true demographic make up of the town.

When I called the mayor he had no way of knowing what color I am. When he was discussing the racial issues with the police department he insisted that they were imagined by "those people who live across the river.

Regarding hiring more Blacks into city positions the mayor was all for it. He said he believed it was important to have the city reflect the demographics of the community and he plans to start a campaign to recruit and hire minority employees over the next year.
