Look at bolded.

I know how this is going to play out. You are going to argue for pages and pages, fighting a war of attrition hoping that I give up before you exhaust all your idiotic arguments.

I refuse. I just wanted to point that out and I am going to enjoy the rest of my night.

Saying that all white people are rich and all black people are poor, is doing a disservice to both.

There are plenty of successful black people that are doing great.

There are plenty of poor whites that are barely surviving, and need your help. Bring race into it somehow makes it seem like blacks aren't capable of success and whites aren't capable of suffering, which is ridiculous.

The majority of poor people in America are white.

You watch how quickly the Obama administration and the Democratic leadership abandon the poor that after the election is over. The will use the fiscal cliff as an excuse to sell out the poor and protect the rich.

Romney would have been worse for the poor dont get me wrong. But Obama/democratic leadership and Romney have more in common than someone making minimum wage.

If Obama did nothing the Bush tax cuts automatically expire and sequestration takes the majority of spending cuts from the military, watch as the dems "negotiate" and manage to give up more cuts to welfare programs and transfer the military spending cuts to the poor.

People actually think he's not one of the elite rich (Obama)

Kind of sad though if you really think about it

Really, there are poor whites and rich blacks? Wow I had no idea.

Clearly I said nothing like that at all lol



All I said is that it is a no brainer that if the gap between rich and poor is getting bigger then so is the gap between white and black, how could it not? Are we to pretend that all races are equal financially??

Fine, maybe on average, but just saying if you focus too much on the average, you do a disservice to both blacks and whites.

I am uncomfortable equating black to poverty and white to wealth because of the connotations. And I stand by the point that Most poor americans are white.

Gee and who was president the last 4 years? SMH at anyone who thinks the Democrats really care about anyone who doesn't have money or political clout.

Where I live... Chicago. Black hoods have liquor stores, churches, salons, barbershops, fast food, free bullets, crime, strip malls, food deserts, poverty, high chances of you getting locked up, robbed, or shot. The majority of schools need to be rebuilt but the damn mayor wants to close them and make them charters. There is nothing wrong with them or the students. This is transition time nation wide... it's yet another TAKE OVER BY THE WHITE MAN. Privatize EVERYTHING. Oh I forgot all the foreclosed homes and lack of jobs... Drugs, guns, and gangs are everywhere though. Cops play cat and mouse. Flaming hot bags blowing in the wind.

White hoods... excellent police response time, boutiques, super malls, job opportunities, grocery stores with fresh produce and meats. Low crime... mostly committed by hungry black and latino youth. White folks walking round with their iphone's out...

This city is VERY segregated. Wrong hood, wrong time is no joke. You could die. I love Chicago though... you just have to know how to move around. White parties are better than black cuz they don't end with gunshots. Hate to sound however but it's the damn truth. There are both good black and white people but the minority of romney wealthy white people are evil. They aren't in the trenches making a difference. I know several well off white people who are so shout out to them!!! They actually minister in the hood... in the daytime! Common Sense...

ANY RACE OF YOUTH WITH NOTHING TO DO WILL FIND SOMETHING STUPID TO DO. They/we need jobs and opportunities.. dropping out of high school or getting a ged is a start but soooo far off. You need a bachelors @ least today.. add a masters and depending on what field you are in you are either over qualified or inexperienced. Go figure. Education is the OTHER way out the hood... not selling drugs, not rapping, not... Well stripping does pay well but I concur..

The majority of the white US pop is redneck on food stamps... that's what kills me about how romney got as many votes are he got. him and ryan basically LIED about everything they were discussing.

White Minority=Wealthy...Rich..

Majority White Black and Brown= Poor

I don't know anyone personally who's could sustain their way of life for 6 months, let alone a year if they lost their job. We are all a paycheck away from the street. The majority of the US citizens are POOR. We just have OBJECTS and IDOLS to take our attention away from stuff like..... Congress and the House of Rep. Shout out to Apple.

chicago is one of the most segregated cities in the US. When I lived there, a commonly known fact (I really dont know if its actually true) was that the S and W Sides of Chicago were the largest concentration of black people outside of Africa.
