“Race Relations Won’t Get Better, May Get Worse” Unless We Redistribute More Wealth…
#11
I just read an article the other day that said that the stats for whites going into poverty level are growing at an astounding level. Basically minorities still have about the same poverty level as always...but as far as any percentage growing...whites are growing at astounding rates. So if whites are going into poverty faster and faster....how are we going to keep giving minorities free money? Need to go find that article....

Here it is:

Quote:................As nonwhites approach a numerical majority in the U.S., one question is how public programs to lift the disadvantaged should be best focused -- on the affirmative action that historically has tried to eliminate the racial barriers seen as the major impediment to economic equality, or simply on improving socioeconomic status for all, regardless of race.
Hardship is particularly growing among whites, based on several measures. Pessimism among that racial group about their families' economic futures has climbed to the highest point since at least 1987. In the most recent AP-GfK poll, 63 percent of whites called the economy "poor."
"I think it's going to get worse," said Irene Salyers, 52, of Buchanan County, Va., a declining coal region in Appalachia. Married and divorced three times, Salyers now helps run a fruit and vegetable stand with her boyfriend but it doesn't generate much income. They live mostly off government disability checks.
"If you do try to go apply for a job, they're not hiring people, and they're not paying that much to even go to work," she said. Children, she said, have "nothing better to do than to get on drugs."
While racial and ethnic minorities are more likely to live in poverty, race disparities in the poverty rate have narrowed substantially since the 1970s, census data show. Economic insecurity among whites also is more pervasive than is shown in the government's poverty data, engulfing more than 76 percent of white adults by the time they turn 60, according to a new economic gauge being published next year by the Oxford University Press.
The gauge defines "economic insecurity" as a year or more of periodic joblessness, reliance on government aid such as food stamps or income below 150 percent of the poverty line. Measured across all races, the risk of economic insecurity rises to 79 percent.
Marriage rates are in decline across all races, and the number of white mother-headed households living in poverty has risen to the level of black ones.........................

Funny how they can make issues to continue the divide and conquer. Did I miss something? Is it 1960, but we have the Internet?

Need a good wedge issue for 2014.

How can there not be 'income inequality' when all these people want to do is sit on their asses and get a check? Yeah of course you make less than me, because you don't have a f'ing job. Their so-called great unifier is anything but. This is divide and conquer 101.
