The Harvard professor who is amazing at getting big institutions to give him confidential information is confident that the reason there’s more social mobility in Winsted, MN has nothing to do with the fact that “The racial makeup of the city was 97.5% White, 0.5% African American, 0.3% Native American, 0.1% Asian, 0.1% Pacific Islander, 0.9% from other races, and 0.6% from two or more races. Hispanic or Latino of any race were 1.8% of the population.”

While in contrast the reason there isn’t much socio-economic mobility in Conley, Georgia has nothing to do with the racial make-up:

Conley racial composition[7]
Race Num. Perc.
White (non-Hispanic) 583 8.73%
Black or African American (non-Hispanic) 4,067 60.88%
Native American 21 0.31%
Asian 162 2.43%
Pacific Islander 1 0.01%
Other/Mixed 181 2.71%
Hispanic or Latino 1,665 24.93%

But what doesn’t Chetty know between Minnesota and Georgia?
