Considering Kansas City Racial Disparity As The Working Poor Stay Losing
Take a look at requested racial insight into a much bigger problem . . .
Racial inequality threatens Kansas City economy
MARC commissioned this study so that they would feel less guilty about their big lunches and all of the taxes they support:
An Equity Profile Of The Kansas City Region
The money line . . .
"One in four blacks and Latinos live below the poverty level in the metro area. That is more than triple the poverty rate of whites in the region, the report said.
Also, the bottom half of the region’s full-time workers — whites included — have suffered a 6 percent decline in real wages since 1979. Meanwhile, wages of the top 10 percent of workers, many of whom are the area’s business and civic policy leaders, rose 13 percent."
And that last part is probably the most important and something that very few realize . . . The working poor of EVERY DEMOGRAPHIC have a lot more in common than anybody would care to realize while haters continue to play up the mostly meaningless culture war and argue about petty racial and political differences.
