Most Black Twin Cities residents feel their race has impacted job prospects
Data: McKinsey American Opportunity Survey; Chart: Will Chase/Axios

A new survey found that 56% of Black Twin Cities residents believe their race has negatively impacted their future job prospects.

  • That ranks along with Denver at the bottom of 17 metro areas in a major new survey from McKinsey and Ipsos, provided first to Axios.
  • McKinsey surveyed 25,109 adults in March and April, 2,552 of whom are Black.

Context: The numbers should not come as a surprise in the Twin Cities, where we have the nation's second-widest gap between income for whites and Blacks.

  • 27% of Asians in the Twin Cities said their race negatively impacted their future job prospects. For Hispanics, that number is 19% and for whites it's 10%.
