As we also pointed out last month, the increase in the number of Americans not working is partially due to older workers retiring, and partially due to a troubling rise in the number of Americans between the prime working ages of 18 and 64 dropping out of the labor force.
In 2000, the number of 18- to 64-year-olds not in the labor force was 38.1 million; today that number is 49 million.
To any non-Whites who may read this, while White unemployment may not be quite as bad, it still is bad overall. When it comes to unemployment, we're ALL in the same boat.
The difference between Whites and non-Whites is that we do NOT have Affirmative Action to help us out. When it comes to employment, the worst thing you can be now is a White male native born citizen. We don't have any Affirmative Action, and no NAACP looking after us. I'm not talking about the White race, I'm talking about individual Whites.
Anyway you look at it we're ALL in this mess together. Unless we stop blaming each other and knock off the "Whitey is keeping us down" and "Blackie takes all our jobs" we're never going to get out of this mess.
But that's exactly what the One Percenters want. They want us to fight with each other. Every time a White cops kills a Black suspect and the Blacks riot or protest, we're playing into their hands.
So let's all stand together against the REAL enemy who is trying to reduce ALL working people to Serfdom.
As I always say, only fools fight in a house when the wolf is pounding at the door.
Serf: A laborer who works someone else's land, usually in debt to said landlord and not allowed to leave as long as the debt exists. Russia had Serfdom until the early 20th Century.
