He went on to say, “Without that infamous spot in American history, black people would be wealthy by $ 455 billion today and we would have over 400,000 more black millionaires – twice as many today. But the greatest toll lies in the complete destruction of the intergenerational wealth and knowledge that these men and women would have bequeathed to the three generations of offspring that have passed since then. The wealth and knowledge that would have been the foundation of economic prosperity and success that we would all have enjoyed today. ‘
David also noted, “Indeed, one cannot imagine the hundreds of thousands, maybe even millions, of young Black children who have learned from and been inspired by these great men and women of Black Wall Street. And thus resurrected from the chronic economic malaise currently prevalent in many black households in modern America. Instead, the average black family’s wealth is less than 15% of the average white family’s wealth. And the average black is less educated, has fewer opportunities and earns 40% less than the average white. “
