re: As inflation soars, Black Americans bear the brunt of rising prices
I feel badly for those folks who didn't vote for this crap. Not everyone was blind to what was surely going to come....

Again, these are all things red states preach like the three I listed attempt to do, and yet, the racial wealth gaps in those states remain amongst the highest in the country.


Sure I’ll bite.

In 1959 African Americans were genuine second class citizens in Alabama. The minority poverty rate in the state at that time was over 60% and could have been as much as 80%. In New York in that same year, the minority poverty rate was between 24% and 30%




From 1960 to 2020, a time period in which Alabama was the subject of multiple civil rights movements, civil unrest, and eventual granted full rights to black people (for the most part) the poverty rate for black people dropped from the estimated 60%-80% to 23.5%

Despite the massive head start in granting full rights to African Americans, New York’s black poverty rate from 1959 to 2020 fell from 24%-30% to 20%


By every statistical measure, poverty amongst black people in Alabama has decreased significantly more than in New York. Leaving a paltry 3.5% difference in the two states. (For the record 11.5% of white people in Alabama are under the poverty line whereas it’s 9.1% in New York. A 2.4% difference)

To put as succinctly as possible, in the 1960s, Alabama’s governor was literally spraying black people with firehouses for having the audacity to ask for equal treatment. From that point onward, despite remaining a supremely republican state, Alabama has pulled almost completely even with New York in black poverty rate

Being put back in chains just like Uncle Joe promised.

If black Americans switched parties even for one election cycle, it would do more for their cause than anything since CRA. Not even because Rs would necessarily fix everything or anything, but it would change the Dems perception of the effort needed to maintain their support.

But instead they'll let Dems convince them that everything bad in their life is because of "the other party" and they'll vote themselves to ruin.

was just curious if there was actually any substantive argument about why black people should flock to Republicans.

Because democrats caused a lot of their problems and continue to shite the bed on things that would improve black communities, like crime.

Now, is that because they have more melanin in their skin, or because a higher percentage of them act like those scumbags in the video the other day about the ghetto neighborhood in Atlanta?

This is pretty much what happened in Nola with Jason Williams. gets Soros backing and they pay people to go door to door to only black homes and say hes here to fight for them and erase years of racism in the justice system. Only to not prosecute criminals that mainly kill black people.

This isn't a really good argument for current Republican policy though, this is an argument for the power of civil rights laws and policies. As in both cases, what allowed a jump in the reduction of black poverty and the wealth gap was civil rights policies and laws that were present in NY but not Alabama until the federal government forced them on Jim Crow states.

It's the equivalent of saying that because the wealth gap in Alabama from 1860 fell from 99% to 60% in 1960, therefore Jim Crow was good policy for black people. No, it's just not as bad as worse policy, which was literal slavery.

If Republican policies were truly the better evolutionary next step in closing the wealth gap, you would expect to see high black population, high Republican control states like Louisiana, Mississippi and Alabama leading the charge, passing up other Jim Crow states that haven't been as solidly red in the last decade or so, yet it's the opposite mostly. The white/Black wealth gap remains larger in those more red states.

Note the time when it started rising exponentially for black Americans. Note who was in office at the time. Note his policies at the time.

No matter the race the people getting hurt the most are the people who don’t own their house.

And those unfortunate enough to have to buy a car.

It's a good point.

It should be blatantly transparent to everyone at this point, but you know, muh party and all.

GOP policy is focused on funneling money to the top as much as possible and DNC policy is focused on voting, while still funneling money to the top of their particular chosen.
