    Ignoring the fact that on occasion, that negative stereotype has been enhanced/reinforced by some within that racial group. Like I said...its not necessarily something you want to admit.

    The business owner, especially in the low wage area, like the survey was, he would have to think about who can sue him and for what.

    A minority can sue, even without a real case, if they get fired and say it was because of their race and it is up to the business owner to prove it wasn't.

    That costs a lot of money.
    Actually...I kind of left white employees in the same category as black employees. I think the general and prevalent attitude amongst most employers of low skilled workers is that young white employees are spoiled, pampered, unreliable, drama driven little brats and that they would prefer hiring an illegal immigrant, legal immigrant or US hispanic over blacks OR white applicants. (remember...the study abstract cited-and we have no way of knowing who they actually studied, what businesses, and how biased or unbiased the studfy was-specified the unskilled labor market).

    Oh Im sure he like ALL the racist democrats suddenly converted. It was like magic!

    Democrat politicians see minorities as voting blocks...nothing more. They dont give a **** about them. The appeasement legislation they have passed have contributed to the devastation that is the modern black community. You think those programs HELP???? Look at the black community. They are being overwhelmed as the first minority group by immigrant groups that come to America and somehow...with NOTHING to start on...magically succeed. The black community is overrepresented in early death statistics, abortion rates, prison rates, underrepresented in college graduate rates, academic achievement, etc. The reality is that the success of those that come here and succeed has nothing to do with 'magic'. It has everything to do with hard work, a willingness to achieve, not having a bunch of race baiters continuing to provide excuse upon excuse for failure, not receiving the 'benefit' of social programs that have destroyed family and community. Oh yes...30 years of democrat support has done WONDERS for the black community.

    Since you refuse to tell us what experience you have and what your job is, we are forced to assume that you don't have either.

    I call liberals that actually. You know liberals that believe they can pass things like minimum wage or the living wage and not lose employment. They have this strange idea that they can change the rules of the market by just putting the wage at whatever they please. Funny that it doesn't work that way. Oh wait, no its not, its called a basic economic principle.

    The desperation is palpable.

    When the race card gets played, that means a liberal is crapping its knickers. Things ain't looking good.

    Fortunately, the nation is tired of the overplayed, abused race card. Dr. King is rolling in his grave at how his important work has been undone by those he wanted to help.

    Most of this arguement has been irrelevant. Say that the GOP supported racism 40-50 years ago. Democrats support it today. In reality you can say that the parties shifted but for the overwhelming vast majority of the last 150 years it's been the Democrats defending racism in one aspect or another including now.

    To expand on that this should help understand the economic problem of minimum wage a bit more...

Good intentions motivate most Americans in their support for minimum wage laws, but for compassionate public policy, one should examine the laws' effect. That’s seen by putting oneself in the place of an employer and asking, "If I must pay $7.25 an hour to no matter whom I hire, does it pay me to hire a worker who’s so unfortunate as to have skills that enable him to produce, say, only $4 worth of value an hour?" Most employers would view hiring such a worker as a losing economic proposition; therefore, a minimum wage law discriminates against low-skilled workers by reducing employment opportunity.
    Btw a racist democrat at the time said..

    Knowing that unemployment among blacks was actually lower than whites before minimum wage and ever since it has been much higher speaks volumes about it and the liberals that support it.

    I don't see how favoring one race over another can lead to racial equality. Can you?

    Favoring one racial, ethnic or religious group over another has been done before but has never met with much success. What happens is what we see today, which is deeper resentments, wilder hyperbole and further divisions between people.

    The only thing that changed about Left wing racism, is the strategy.
