67% of all American adults do not have a will.
71.5 % of Black Americans do not have a will.

The real story is how similar this is, not the inflammatory headline. And the % with wills are growing rapidly.

Overall, 33% of U.S. adults have a will, according to Caring.com’s 2021 wills and estate planning survey. Meanwhile, 27.5% of Black Americans have one, up from 25.9% in 2020.

From Caring.com itself, without being filtered by click bait headline writers – 2 out of 3 adults do not have a will – that’s the story:

The above news story from CNBC is a deliberate attempt at divisiveness to create emotional feelings around their story. Like most news reporting the headline is garbage click bait.

That younger adults are, as a result of Covid hysteria, more likely to have added a will than older adults illustrates how fucked up public health communication has been. The odds of mortality in young adults are VASTLY lower than for those over age 50 or 60.
