It’s best to take these sorts of ratings with a grain of salt, but how can I not shine a light on this report which scores New Rochelle as the second best city in America for Black women, based on factors such as safety, homeownership, educational attainment, income, etc.  To be clear, even if the comparative data show New Rochelle in a positive light relative to other cities, in absolute terms, there are still very significant inequities in New Rochelle, reflecting both the historical and the present-day impacts of structural racism.  We should regard such reports as an impetus to further progress and not as a basis for complacency.
