More to follow.
In 1954 the United States Supreme Court ruled that, as Chief Justice Earl Warren said for the majority, “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.” This was but a couple of blocks from where an all-black high school had outperformed two-thirds of Washington D.C.’s white high schools on the same test back in 1899. Segregation may have been inherently wrong, but the cure — bussing to achieve “equality” — has been worse. Thank liberal/progressive Democrats and big government.
Democrats tout that it is they we should thank for establishing a federal minimum wage, and for regularly continuing to increase it. Democrats think you’re stupid.
An employer considers the value of what one can produce to determine how much to be willing to pay. Given the abysmal and rotten government-operated school system, with blacks getting the by-far-shortest end of the stick, there are more black than white drop-outs and black proficiency levels in the aggregate in both reading and math are far lower. Blacks on average “graduate” with 8th grade reading proficiency and 5th grade math.
As the minimum wage is increased — allegedly raising the standard of living for “the poor” — young blacks become excluded from the workforce because, until they develop job skills, they cannot produce more than $7.25 per hour in value to an employer. Thank liberal/progressive Democrats and big government.
There is so much that so many just know for sure to be true that just ain’t so.
