I’m sure the elites in the group did very, very well, eh?
Does this include public assistance funding for each group?
The term does serve to separate them from all of the non-American blacks in the world who have enough problems without being saddled with that unfair association.
We all are earning less due to inflation. Wages have stagnated.
Weird. I would have thought Barack Hussein would have fixed that...
Root Cause: Approx 80% of black households are single parent (moms only) households. #1 predictor of poverty
This crap is not anymore believable than climate science temperature data.
