It really is too bad that people like Jackson, and Sharpton turned their experience into an extortion racket rather than using it to actually help their community...As for the age old excuse of using race to deflect criticism, it is just plain lazy.
You're claim fits Sharpton better than Jackson, but it's important to note we all don't have the same experiences. We used to say when I was younger to walk in another person's shoes before you criticize too much. For those who have benefited the most to say to those who have benefited the least to quite whining and playing victim is rather arrogant no matter who does it. While I'm responding to you, I mean this across the board. I can't imagine that anyone really believes all racism is dead and buried.
AUSTAN GOOLSBEE:I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.
