In case you didn't get it from the last post
1 in 87 working-aged white men is in prison or jail compared with
1 in 36 Hispanic men, and
1 in 12 African-American men.
Even more shocking
America has 5% of the world's population and
25% of the prison population (mostly young black men)
Oh Dear God and this is the wealthiest nation on earth
the land of the free
home of the American Dream!
and the mega-rich
can now console themselves with the idea that
the poor are poor because they have failed to
generate sufficient will-power
They will tell you it has nothing to do with the fact that –
The richest 400 Americans have more wealth than
half of all American households combined
and yet their tax rate has fallen
by about half in the past 20 years.
Mr Obama what are you doing?
