    Elites: If you don't think and vote like we do, you are at reduced mental capacity. And/or, you're a (whatever) phobic.

    Granted I was looking at it from a different direction back then but was this not the vibe democrats were putting out in 04 with John Kerry? Doesn't seem new.

    You're surprised to see another article of a black person blaming white people for all their problems in the Huffington Post?

    Hasn't that been like 40% of their articles for the last couple years?

    But on the other hand the Republican party clearly has a problem with race as only 5% of black people and 25% of Hispanics voted for them.

    No question about it. I understand blacks more than the the hispanics though. Hispanics are usually very Catholic in their upbringing and family life and some of the social justices put forth by the Democratic party are at odds with the teachings of the Catholic church. Yes I understand the GOP has their immigration issues with Hispanics, but I still think the number should be closer to even.

    But one day the African Americans in the country are going to wake up and realize that all these years of supporting the Democrats hasn't improved their life one bit. It may have already happened with Obama. He was going to be their savior, but instead he is letting in as many people as he can to take already scarce jobs away from African Americans. It won't take a big shift away from the Democrats to make a huge difference in an election.

    Black women now have a (slightly) higher median wage than white women. And black men have seen wage increases of 30% over the past half century.

    So not all a failure.

    I agree on Hispanics. But I think that makes my point :).

    Na.. Huffington Post is just another rag. It's as bad as foxnews but on the other side of the spectrum.

    Which kind of defeats the idea that all liberals are smug.

    That's good, but are they from similar industries? For example are black women paid higher because they are doing more manual labor vs office jobs?

    And how much have white men's wages increased.

    Very true. Have you seen the Toyota Prius-es with 'Coexist' bumper stickers? They all seem to of people who live in 100% white neighborhoods who wouldn't know diversity even if it bit them in the ass.
    Grade A hypocrites.

    I have a hybrid. And I don't live in an all-White neighbourhood.

    Great article overall, with just one point of curiosity:

    Is that an example of sarcasm?

    If you can't be critical of yourself you ought not be critical of others. I think the lady is spot on

    This reminds me of some of the people that post in PRSI. I don't agree with everything she says, but this part is bang on.
