With Martin Luther King Jr. Day less than a week away and 49 percent of Americans saying the U.S. hasn’t done enough to give black people equal rights to white people, WalletHub on Tuesday released its report on 2021's States with the Most Racial Progress.
To recognize the racial harmony America has achieved, WalletHub measured the gaps between black people and white people across 21 key indicators of equality and integration in each of the 50 states and Washington, D.C.
