For decades, corporations have figured out ways to secretly charge Black people more money, for the same service.
For example, people of color are paying more than twice the amount in banking fees than White Americans, a Bankrate survey found. And that’s especially true for people who live in heavily urban neighborhoods.
When asked about fees such as ATM, overdraft and routine service charges, Black adults report shelling out an average of $12 a month for checking accounts at banks or credit unions and Hispanics are paying $14 a month, on average. White checking account holders said they are paying an average $5 per month, according to the survey, which was conducted by YouGov. It polled 2,743 U.S. adults, among whom 2,339 were checking account holders, from Dec. 7 to 10, 2020.
