I was at Sam's club and a Black Nigerian was the Cashie. Ahead of me was a black older woman and adukt daughter. They were using Snap card to buy frozen salmon and shrimp. The Cashier told them both to get a damn job.
A "Black" Nigerian? What other color would a "Nigerian" be?

That Nigerian came here fully intact! His culture, education, religion, family life, language, purpose, self- knowledge was never taken from him/ her. What would you expect?! They don't have a sense of low self- worth, and dependency like the Blacks who are Americanized. Now, do you see the destruction that slavery did to the American Blacks? It's yt's fault, no way around it!

Slavery has been gone since 1865. Blacks had the opportunity to re-acquire Islam or even go back to Africa.

The American black is the most educated and financially successful group of black people worldwide.

But you hate the White men which made that possible.

Income inequality is highest in New York, a blue state. NYC, highly leftist, has tremendous income inequality.

Income inequality is lowest in Utah, highly Mormon and conservative. In Utah the highest inequality is in leftist Salt Lake City.

Inequality is further exacerbated by continuing high levels of immigration. Which while it has bipartisan support, is primarily a left-wing idea.

Israel got 3.1 billion, not 10 billion, this year.

Compared with the cash the Egyptians are getting, not to mention the free ride the Saudis get from our bases in Qatar, Bahrain and the UAE, we are actually getting some tech from the Jews in the form of missile defense.

Considering that this country is flat broke, I cannot fathom why anyone is getting foreign aid. Ask the Chinese directly.

"Income inequality" is the new buzzword for progressive socialists who would steal your money to "redistribute" it to someone of their choosing - or just keep it for themselves.

No more, no less.

Also of interest, food stamps, medicaid, and housing subsidies aren't counted as "income" for most purposes. So all the redistribution in the world will NEVER bring "income" equity, according to their measures.

While I would agree that the poor will always be with us, I'd disagree with the conclusion. It seems to assume that the industrious are always the ones who make good decisions and nothing bad can ever happen to them. I see it a bit more fluid than that. You can be industrious, but yet have bad intentions. You can be prosperous and still lose everything in a moment. What is your definition of "rational" and "industrious?" I can make a decision that would be rational for me, but irrational for you. I can say I am happy (and quite possible to do this) without a desire to build a lot of wealth (and remain off the dole) and strive for a different type of life... I've known teachers who make rather little and yet they work quite hard, I've known bankers/CEOs who are so narcissistic their decisions are all about THEM and they hardly work for what they've reaped, and probably got their golden parachutes in some unethical manner...
To each, his own, so long as you are not a burden to others?
The poor are a burden.

The poor make poor choices like lottery tickets, etc.

If America was so broke, Tony, we wouldn't be sending aid to every freaking country in the world who begs for it.

My problem is that America should take care of it's own before helping others. There should not be one person living on the streets, there should not be one vet, who fought for his country living on the street. We should have the best educational system,which we ranked in the middle,compared to other countries. On and on.....
There has been a down slide for decades of this country,because of greed,power,ignorance.

Most countries who get US aid don't even appreciate it, they just expect it because, supposedly, we're the super power of the world.

In my opinion, some politicians want you to believe we are so broke, so they can get richer from their buddies who they're protecting.

Yt made it possible? Naw, wrong movie...WE made it possible through blood, sweat, and tears! A large number of Blacks didn't take advantage of the English system, but many did, and they did it through their intelligence and a will to survive to reproduce and continue the struggle for self- dependability and cultural relevance. The white man tried to stop all of that in the south and in the north as well,but decent humanbeings, who happened to be caucasian, challenged the system and went against it along with the Blacks. The white man, didn't do shit.

African Muslim traitors and hairy desert Arabs sold AFRICANS and they were MADE SLAVES in the Western hemisphere. Some wealthy Zionist funded the boat ride over. Africans were caught in a four- way conspiracy!
