So now jobs are considered "handouts"? Interesting. Is that the new "conservative" talking point?

Stop with the handout expectation of a "job"? Really? That's a bit schizophrenic.

Nope, it is a talking point to RAISE people up from a lack luster life...... Why do progressives like to make more under achievers........

In all my travels to client sites around Michigan, I have yet to have a client that is a minority..... Very sad that the opportunity was stripped from them with the war on poverty which made them all wards of the state...... Public schools have not helped them either...... Correction, one Asian immigrant does have a start up. Barely speaks English but pushes forward and employs many High school grads...... America....

I have no idea what that means. I don't know what you do so for you to not see any "minority" clients means absolutely NOTHING significant to the discussion. If you are saying there no "minority" business owners PASTURE PIZZAS.

And it's more likely there aren't as many minority business owners because of bigoted attitudes of the right like yours than "The War on Poverty" and LBJ. And I'm talking about bigoted as it pertains to racial alone. Ya know, statements like "Stop with the handout expectation of a "Job". There is such a thing a income bigotry.

Many policies by govt hinders growth for many communities.... If you go into Detroit market, you will find immigrants who flew into this Country and started their business and made success for themselves...... Right out of the gate..... Meanwhile the rest of Detroit City is a shambles...... Blame it on white flight if you need to feel guilty but I see opportunity for the residence if the govt did not block them......

Well this just might put a crimp in your ill conceived theory:

While this may be an aside to the current conversation it does put a crimp of the right-wing talking point that it's so difficult to run a business in the U.S.

I have known about the discrimination of whites in this country by Congress...... In the mid 80's they were not talking to whites for govt jobs. The govt wanted minorities and females to equalize the rainbow. Fortunately, I had to work it out and am doing way better today than I would if I took a cop job.... The left wanted to hobble US born peoples in the name of diversity. This leaves All Americans at risk of not developing themselves...... Why should they when handouts are given. The new normal is here....... But I guess you have yours before the doors were slammed shut on inner city victims......

If you can't find any minority business owners to sell your "product" to......

Then you either need to open your eyes or quit selling those "white hooded products"!
