Compared to before when they had no jobs. And now blacks are employed in a variety of jobs.The same free-market that decided blacks couldn't work "intellgient" jobs?
That's an irrational assumption based on nothing.The same free-market that if didn't have to would pay slave wages? Yeah, that free-market.
Your hatred of the free-market stems from comparing what we had when we were close to a free-market system to what we have now. It is not a fair comparison. For a valid comparison, you need to look at what capitalism changed once it was instituted. Before capitalism, you could go generations without any economic growth. Once we got capitalism, we expected growth every year.
Your thinking is the fallacy of irrational comparison. You don't take into account the many variables that have changed. You cherry pick one variable and say that one variable caused the change. It's the method of "correlation does not prove causation."
