Black People Suffer- Who Gives a Rat’s Ass?

Walter Russell Mead, quoting this NYT article, is shocked that black people are losing their government jobs due to cutbacks.

Black people have certainly achieved the incomes of white people, through government jobs, affirmative action jobs, and government affirmative action jobs. But how is this a social achievement? It has put money in the pockets of blacks and bought their political loyalty. But if you are doing unnecessary work, you are not producing wealth for society, so how can you be considered “middle-class”?

The system is losing the ability to pay some of its clients- not because its host has any ability to resist, but because its host has simply been drained to its limit. Blacks are the lowest and least important members of the system, regardless of the phony attention and fake praise showered on them, and their loyalty is assured anyway. They can still beat up and rob people to massage their fragile egos.

About thrasymachus33308

I like fast cars, fast women and southern-fried rock. I have an ongoing beef with George Orwell. I take my name from a character in Plato's "Republic" who was exasperated with the kind of turgid BS that passed for deep thought and political discourse in that time and place, just as I am today. The character, whose name means "fierce fighter" was based on a real person but nobody knows for sure what his actual political beliefs were. I take my pseudonym from a character in an Adam Sandler song who was a obnoxious jerk who pissed off everybody.
