Nicholas Kristof says in the light of Ferguson race deserves more attention than it gets. Mr. Kristof points out the economic disparity between black and white Americans. As Kristof notes: “The black-white income gap is roughly 40 percent greater today than it was in 1967.” The question that Mr. Kristof raises that deserves far more attention is why is that the case?
Could it be that the Democrats’ Great Society and War on Poverty Programs were (and remain) a disaster (for both the poor and tax payers) that made economic disparity worse, not better? Why are black Americans voting 90% for a party that is intent on keeping them dependent and in poverty?
