CNBC – Just over two weeks into his administration, President Joe Biden has already made it clear he wants to close the racial wealth gap in America, signing four executive orders relating to the issue.

The gap is wide. The median wealth for a white family was $188,200, compared to $24,100 for Black families and $36,100 for Hispanic families, according to the Federal Reserve’s 2019 Survey of Consumer Finances.

“The Covid recession has continued to drive wealth upward to a more concentrated group of Americans,” said Marc Morial, president and CEO of the National Urban League.
