    @The Barbarian - do you think inflation is a problem when compared to the overall stagnation of 'real wages'?

    @ffreeloader - are you comfortable with Republicans increasing the deficit by $1 trillion?

    Both parties are playing the same game. They increase spending and hand out much more welfare to corporations than individual citizens.

    They're playing us all.

    Most people online don't want to be corrected. They do not care about anything that does not agree with them.

    Yep. It is. My point was that since the mid-60s, black workers have increased their real wages. More so than the average white worker.

    Which is what seems to really rile black conservatives, as freeloader pointed out.

    Yes, real wages have not kept up with productivity. If socialism triumphs in the United States, it will be because of that.

    The point is that black workers have improved their condition at a faster rate than other workers, which has enraged conservatives.
