...the average black household's wealth fell by more than half, to $5,677...

I would say I'm stunned, but in my experience (from L&D), the average black household is a single mother with multiple children and usually multiple non-present sperm donors. So there is little to no chance of accumulating wealth.

As far as losing value, I guess the newest iPhone nor Air Jordans hold up over time.
