I suppose here is where I am more "Liberal" than you.

It seems odd that you claim to be so concerned about the black community, yet somehow seem okay with this part of the economic model that keeps them unemployed while it ALSO exploits the Third World labor force (i.e., slavery-lite).

Like a said, the Democrats have not changed since the Civil War, they just repainted their exterior. The non-advertised top priority is always to provide cheap labor to their donors.

It's painful to watch.
Without cheap labor, entrepreneurs would find alternative (technical) ways to make these beautiful faux silk shirt drapes for the wonderful Walmart patrons. (Do they really sell ties at Walmart?)

Anyone who believes that Trump will give them their manufacturing jobs back (MAGA!!) rather than realizing technology is replacing them.

...so, you're cool with black unemployment and all of the consequences that come with it?

I don't think blacks with unemployment issues fall into the category I'm talking about.

They also didn't vote for the abomination in office, probably singularly the group with the least blame in the last election.

Nice try...

That post would have been an almost burn, if we lived in your revisionist world.

The truth is, you haven't proven or touched upon any proven economic theories regarding race and the past century.

I am not going to live in your post fact world. You either start to engage with real fact, or there's no point.

Where do you want to go?

Actually, technology is replacing overseas labor (now...eventually all of us I guess). Technology was not the cause for the destruction of the black working class from the 1960s on - the cause was the massive import of cheap labor and then outsourcing for even cheaper labor.

Its funny to hear Democrats fight for a minimum wage, then defend paying a Latino 25 cents a day so we can have cheap lettuce.

Please, please, please pick up a history book. A real one. Try one that is pre-internet too, just to get a different perspective.

Will these books tell me that massive immigration had ZERO impact on African American wages? Will these books tell me that it is okay to exploit illegal immigrants to have cheap lettuce? Will these books tell me it is okay to use child sweat shops to have decently priced ties?

If whatever books you are reading lead you to support this horrendous treatment of your fellow humans, perhaps you are the one that needs some different books.

No, but these books will show you that it wasn't just one white nationalist narrative that lead us here. Now from any intellectual stand point that isn't that hard to fare, or is it?

I'm trying to follow your line of thinking - didn't you say that blacks cannot be racist because racism is about power - and it is white people that have all the power? Did you not say that? So, how can "Black Racists" engage in "covert actions" of racism - if they, buy your definition of "racism", are incapable of any racism at all?

I'm not arguing for the displaced working class whites, a cornerstone of the White Nationalist movement. I am arguing that the Democrat-led mass immigration and globalization policies negatively impacted the working class blacks. Do you disagree? Or do you think that that mass immigration and globalization policies were somehow beneficial to the black working class?
