White and black ink on brown paper

What if the Black Dollar and White Dollar were a real thing? This question came about when researching the 1960’s sit-ins and how consumers were treated differently based on the color of their skin. I looked into the actual statistics of wealth, income, and assets of white Americans compared to black Americans. I found that the average black to white dollar ratio was about .59 to 1.00.
White Dollar Black Dollars are brown paper printed with black in on one side and white ink on the other. Although it was the same material, the black side was only worth 59% of the white side.
