I think there is still inequality in the United States, but not because the reasons that mainstream media often give.
For example, income equality between Caucasian people and minorities. The Democratic party often tell us that it’s because the Caucasian people actively opressed the minorities so they can’t be successful.
But the fact is, Minorities in United States are not only African American and the latino/as but also the asian.
The asian currently held the highest average income among all races in United States. If one minority can do it while the other can’t , the reason point to the tradition/way of living, not the race itself
