Silvafan, you understand that this is from govt data which specifically asks about ethnicity in an attempt to recognize rasism ASAP in a workplace.

Is your complaint with how it is being reported or that Latinos got the largest raises in 2016?

African American is a poor term. I've met many "African Americans" who were from Africa, but live in American by choice, with their pale skin. Born in Africa, permanently living in America. Some are of Asian-Indian descent, so they have the darker skin, but were born in Africa (Zimbabwe) and emigrated to the USA. They are also "African-Americans."

For whites and Latinos pay rose 0.9 percent adjusted for inflation last year; for African Americans, it fell 0.5 percent. Latinos received the biggest raises in 2016; whites earned the most in 2015.

This is good news for racists!

"LOWER-PAID WORKERS RECEIVE SOLID GAINS"

"SOLID GAINS FOR WHITES AND LATINOS"

Also record low unemployment for blacks and Latinos

This is bad news for the Democrats.

This has been the way it worked the last 30 yrs, at least in technology fields. But money isn't everything. Interesting, important work kept me at positions for a few extra years, even with deficient pay. Eventually, money did force a change, however.
