GOPer gets to pen this stupid sexist racist article: "Racism isn't the problem, black culture is"

Letter to the editor: Racism isn't the problem, black culture is
Jun 8, 2021

For a number of years we have heard an awful lot about racism, there will always be people with racist inclinations, but America is definitely not a racist country. Barack Obama won the presidency with nearly 70 million votes in 2008 and won again in 2016, with a significant margin.

We have well over a million illegals in this country who are awaiting, or already avoided, an asylum hearing and they represent well over 200 countries. People have always endeavored to get into, not out of, America. It is true that white household income is significantly higher than Black household income, $76,057 to $45,438. However, Asian households earn far more than whites at $98,174; Hispanic households earn $45,438 and Native Americans only $40,315. I believe these differences can be explained not by race but by the differences in the specific cultures.

We have known for some time that single-parent households are a highly significant indicator of poverty. In 2010, 72% of Black households were single parent households. Those figures for the other races were Native American 66%, Hispanic 54%, white 29% and Asian 17%. While many women do a heroic job, I believe single-parent households are a determining indicator of how much a family will earn.

There is no cure for those stuck in the stupid culture.

12. Holy shit - he literally checks all of the boxes!

1) "Obama got elected - therefore, racism doesn't exist!"

2) "Illegals love it here"

3) "Look at the Asians - making tons of money, and you never hear them complain!"

4) "Black families don't maintain a family unit like all of the wonderful white people do!"

14. We know that the head of White Culture back in the early 70s created the DEA to specifically lock up

all those anti-war hippies and Civil Rights seeking young African American men, and spent the next 20 y ears doing just that including that fucking 90s "tough on crime bill, that followed all the, "enhanced and mandatory sentencing and upgrading of misdemeanors to felonies. That crime bill signed by Bill Clinton and with plenty of Yea votes from the Dems as well.

The U.S. White culture said to the nation, let's lock up all the poorest, suppress wages (1976 EITC) and then rent out the prisoners as cheap tax supported labor for the corporate billionaires.

All to feed those for profit prisons and the extra profit from renting out the prisoners for ultra cheap labor.
