Racism Literally Costs America
$2 Trillion.. Ready To Stop Payment?

Yahoo! News, by Donnell Alexander

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 12/14/2013 1:55:58 PM

What we know: Racism has left a vast legacy of violence. Bigotry in America has marginalized a diverse range of minority culture. It dashes the hopes of children. What we didn´t know: Bias based on race costs the United States a shade under $2 trillion a year. (Snip) Addressing factors such as health care inequities, unjustified incarceration disparities, and lesser employment and education opportunities would generate 12 percent more annual U.S. earnings, the study found. Among the more striking findings cited are a U.S. Department of Commerce study estimating that minority purchasing power would increase from $4.3 trillion to $6.1

Comments:
Any study draped in the words ´disparities´ and ´inequities´ is largely liberal propaganda.

Has it occurred to his Kool Aid addled brain how much we have wasted on the so called war on poverty, with what results? And the fact that the Liberal establishment has done everything in its power to promote the very policies that preserve and increase this inequality.

How about this reading: Liberal social policy literally costs America Trillions in welfare payments and other handouts to minorities who would rather get a handout than work, who refuse to try hard in school, and who think street crime is a part of their legacy.

At first I thought it was going to be an article about what the price of entitlements really cost us, but this is pure garbage. If this trip were true then they are contradicting Nancy Pelosi when that ding-bat tried to tell us that for every dollar a person receives in food stamps, $1.79 is put back into the economy. The only "barriers" I am aware of is ability or lack thereof.

It´s amazing how far the brain will reach to rationalize failure, to avoid admitting fault. It must be painful for this person to face the truth. But, that doesn´t change the truth. Sounds like he´s from another country/planet.

Racism is based on what is called "self reporting" - in other words if someones claims to be a victim of racism we are supposed to accept the claim as 100% true - actually, a large number of racism claims are, to put it mildly, exaggerated. But they get results!

This is a very heavy chain around the neck of America that is not about to go away and socialist oriented affirmative action policies and programs are just going to make the situation worse in both public expense and result.

Income inequality, reduced productivity, etc.... Seems to me that if you went virtually anywhere and offered to work so hard that you would increase productivity by 10% and at the same time would work for $0.50 per hour less, you would immediately be offered a job. Am I missing a subtlety?

There are too many success stories and too many black millionaires for this kind of "RACIST" story to be meaningful in any way.

I recently came across a joke story or perhaps true, either way it makes the point.

A black guy laid off from his job claims racism and tells the boss that he is being laid off because he is black, the boss answers, no you are wrong, you were hired because you are black, you are laid off because you are useless at the job.

Yahoo is a Racist and so is Donnell Alexander, race pimps are costing America $2 Trillion.

Is he inadvertently saying that if all these underserved, underperforming minorities were instead white (or Asian) we would save $2 trillion? Man is a racist.

Also, he left out the cost of affirmative action. Just look what having Barry in the White House alone has cost the country. Then add in all the dysfunctional black-dominated city governments.

I don´t care what you call it - people have developed views on certain ethnic segments because they are accurate! When you recognize a rabid dog - are you being "judgmental"? The dems have grown and harvested a feral culture of aggressive dependents. They should be proud.

What is left is for the rest of us to determine how to best insulate ourselves from the feral bunch and their masters - THAT is what we should be talking about.
Looking out long term, I see future "pilgrims" colonizing other planets, much as our forefathers colonized this land. I don´t think that I´ll live that long though, unfortunately.

While Dr. Sowell and Dr. Carson, LLoyd Marcus and others are willing to stand and make the logical case for why Race-Baiting Liberalism is the cause of most problems in the hood...
....Mssr. Alexander prefers to make unfounded and unreasonable charges that imply that more special pleading and hand holding would help his most favored homies.
Dear Gawd...haven´t we tried that ?

Aren´t 50+ years of leftist foolishness a good enough experiment into the advisability of blaming all problems on white guys ?

I just scanned through the study (which is free for download). It appears more descriptive than analytical, completely ignores the Culture of Poverty that Daniel Patrick Moynihan defined (to his detriment) forty years ago, and offers no way to change the status quo. The study examines racial disparities, such as education, incarceration, and employment, and includes input supportive of the thesis, but provides only tenuous and anecdotal proof that "Bias based on race costs the United States a shade under $2 trillion a year."

For the past 45-50 years, schools have been "teaching" students Affirmative Action and that it is wrong for whites to be racist, the result of these efforts is that white discrimination against blacks is almost non-existent and many blacks resent and hate all whites for things that haven´t been done for two generations.

You want to get rid of racism...look to those who are racist...the ghetto blacks who think they have the right to ´play the knock out game´ on unsuspecting whites who have never met them nor done anything against them. Look to the ghetto blacks who mug, carjack, rape, murder and commit other mayhem simply because of skin color. They look to those who make their living off racial strife...and almost all of them share a single complexion.

Until the media makes as much "progress" in eliminating black-on-white crime and the underlying black-on-white racism, leave me alone!

They can study the same thing a million times, but the crime rate speaks for itself.
I live in a urban area that has to be the only place left with segregation. The blacks want to be segregated, but pass the integrated tax money. I have never seen anything like it or the perks going to the hood. The older ones are as bad as the young ones with entitlements.

When Conservatives, including me, wish to trash a Liberal site, does it not call for you to demonstrate honesty vs what Liberals do to conservative sites?

This article is NOT exclusive to Yahoo. I put the headline into google and it came up on dozens of sites.

I think Yahoo just gathers news items just like we do here or Drudge or whoever. How many sites actually have Reporters reporting the news? Syndication means news goes to a number of sites. Remember that.

A college student visiting Colorado for spring break fell to his death after eating marijuana cookies in what´s believed to be the first publicized fatality linked to pot since its legalized sale in January. Levy Thamba, a 19-year-old exchange student at Northwest College in Powell, Wyo., had just eaten the pot-laced treats with friends last month when he became "very agitated and upset" and ran off a fourth floor hotel balcony, according to the Denver Coroner´s Office.

MOSCOW — Even as American and Russian diplomats groped toward a settlement that would halt further Russian military intervention in Ukraine, Gazprom, the Russian energy company, stepped up the economic pressure on Tuesday by sharply raising the price it charges for natural gas. Gazprom, a state-controlled gas exporter, raised the price to $385 for 1,000 cubic meters of gas, the standard measure used in gas deals in Europe, from $268, an increase of 44 percent. The price increase follows what analysts say is a long practice at Gazprom of punitive pricing for countries in the former Soviet Union and Eastern

Russia set out a series of tough conditions on Sunday night for agreeing a diplomatic solution to the crisis over its annexation of Crimea, demanding that the US and its European partners accept its proposal that ethnic Russian regions of eastern and southern Ukraine be given extensive autonomous powers independent of Kiev. Emergency talks between Sergei Lavrov, Russia´s foreign minister, and John Kerry, the US secretary of state, got under way at the Russian ambassador´s residence in Paris after a day in which tensions over Ukraine deepened appreciably. Neither man made any substantive comment before the talks began. Suggesting it

The Sultan of Brunei, one of the world’s wealthiest rulers and a close ally of Britain, will this week oversee his country’s transition to a system of Islamic law with punishments that include flogging, the dismemberment of limbs and stoning to death. The 67-year-old absolute monarch declared last year that he wanted to introduce a full sharia system in his oil-rich nation and warned critics who took to social media sites to complain that they could be prosecuted using the new laws. The decision to introduce sharia and reintroduce the death penalty has been condemned by NGOs and legal rights

Support for the health care reform law is at its lowest point since it was enacted four years ago, according to a new poll. The Associated Press survey found that only 26 percent of Americans support the Affordable Care Act, President Barack Obama’s signature domestic achievement. Forty-three percent said they are opposed to the law. The poll was conducted online, and online polls are typically not as accurate as telephone polls. But the results nevertheless point to political peril for Democratic congressional candidates in the midterm elections, with Republicans again running against the law across the country.

In a Kremlin ceremony with senior security officials, Sergei Shoigu told Putin that all Ukrainian servicemen still loyal to Kiev have left the Crimea region, whose annexation by Moscow has led to the worst stand-off with the West since the Cold War.

Washington - The United States and Europe must stand firm in rejecting Russia’s aggression against Ukraine and its annexation of Crimea not just because they challenge the principles a peaceful and prosperous Europe is built on, President Obama said Wednesday in Brussels, but also because they thwart "universal values" of freedom and self-determination that stir all humanity.

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A few months back, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius stated for the record that 7 million Obamacare sign-ups by the end of March would constitute success. She was clear about it. But then February came, and February always stinks. It’s just a lousy month. You’re tired of winter, you’re still miles away from spring, and no one was signing up for Obamacare. That 7 million figure looked totally unreachable. So Sebelius does what every other member of the Obama administration does when confronted with inconvenient facts. She lied.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

With Chris Christie in deep trouble, Republican poobahs are reportedly looking to Jeb Bush to save their party in 2016.

According to a recent Washington Post/ABC News poll registered voters were asked if they would definitely NOT vote for Jeb Bush and 50 percent said they would not.

ANN ARBOR, Mich. – President Obama compared the Republican budget plan to a "stinkburger" or "meanwich" during a speech here Wednesday, using a series of zingers in an attempt to strike a contrast with the GOP on economic issues in an election year.
