A friend sent me an article (see below). I sent this response:
Good, but with a major, perhaps fatal flaw: it grossly understates the scale of the problem. The descendants of slaves constitute a relatively small (though not-insignificant) percentage of the people being marginalized today. Given their numbers, and their educational attainment when one includes the hopelessly-indebted college graduates, low-income people have a real opportunity to press hard for fundamental change -- especially since the precarious nature of their place in the current order is finally starting to dawn on so many middle-income people as well. But real progressive change will never happen -- can never happen -- if we let rent-seekers, and crazed ideologues pit us against each another. We, the 99.9%, are in a storm: we need all hands on deck.
Dave will be LIVE in a few!
