Keeping the definition of market failure in mind (a misallocation of resources), if consumers have unequal incomes then it is likely markets will not be able to allocate resources efficiently in a way that satisfies the consumers. If resources aren't allocated efficiently, then there are going to be consumers that can't buy goods and services, leading to poverty and the ghetto effect i.e. the poor stay poor.
