In Oreogn, 17 percent of all Oregonians live in poverty and the numbers are even worse for minorites in the state.

 

Juan Carlos Ordonez with  the "Oregon Center for Public Policy" says minorities are typically earning less income than whites.

 

"Well what our numbers are showing is we still have a long way to go.  We still have economic inequity here in Oregon.  The newest and most recent numbers are much higher for racial and ethical groups and the medican household is much less for all minorities."

 

In 2011, the typical Oreogn household earning 46-thousand dollars -- while African Americans and Native Americans earn just over 30 thousand dollars.
