Bernie Goldberg: Poverty Spreading to 'White America'

By    |   Thursday, 13 Nov 2014 10:01 PM


Bernie Goldberg says the poverty seen disproportionately in the black community could be coming to the white community if nothing is done about the root causes.

Appearing Thursday on Fox News Channel's "The O'Reilly Factor," the veteran journalist and author said poverty among blacks isn't caused by racism or "white privilege," but by lack of education and out-of-wedlock births.

"There's no question that family dissolution is a major factor that leads to poverty, regardless of race," Goldberg said.

The poverty rate is worse for blacks because a disproportionate number of blacks drop out of high school and there is a high number out-of-wedlock births.

The numbers, he said, are growing among whites.

"The problems we've seen in black America are coming to white America, and poverty will follow these numbers," Goldberg said.
