This paper explores the actuarily unfair nature of Social Security benefits that are extended to African Americans, particularly African-American males. It includes a microsimulation that estimates the disparity in net Social Security wealth that is produced by the current system. It suggests that the system should be modified to ameliorate the disparity.
