So the income of black women fulltime workers as a percentage of white women full time workers peaked in the 1970s at close to 95%, but is now down below 80%.

Among men, the income of fulltime black male workers got up over 70% of the income of fulltime white male workers in both the late 1970s and in 2016, the most recent year.

On the other hand, this is not adjusted for age.

So it looks like the apples-to-apples gender gap that Raj Chetty chose to emphasize in his new paper was pretty small in 2016, but was pretty big in the past.

  1. Chetty is hiding the data which actually indicates no difference in households income between the sons and daughters of wealthy white Americans.

    If the dependent variable is household income rather than individual income, there’s a large gap between white and black women of the same parental income rank. This is, of course, because the husbands of white women earn more.

    One wonders if he is also trying to set up a feminist impression that white women are somehow suffering like minorities in the imaginary world of white male privilege.

    Is Chetty evil, or does he have a political purpose, or is he biased against the marriage model, or is he partially blind?

    This is, of course, because the husbands of white women actually exist.

  2. Black men croak sooner than White women. Blacks get a bad deal out of Social Security and Medicare because they croak sooner than Whites. Returning the eligibility age for Social Security and Medicare to 62 partial and 65 full would be a good wedge issue to deflect accusations of racism in a campaign.

    Wedge the White voters away from the Democrats by honestly attempting to advance Black interests in the United States. Wedge the Black vote even more by stating that old stocker Blacks are being harmed by the importation of Black foreigners through mass immigration. The Democrats would be left accusing the candidate of hypocrisy and voters would wonder why the claim is not being answered.

    Blacks have their incomes lowered by the mass importation of foreigners through immigration policy.

    A candidate could get away with a lot of truth about Blacks if he blunted any attacks by stating that he thinks the continuous raising of the eligibility age for Social Security and Medicare harms Blacks. In a similar manner, just keep saying over and over again that mass immigration lowers wages for Black workers.

    This candidate must bash the hell out of the corporate media while talking about the bad deal Blacks are getting out of the payroll tax scam and the mass immigration scam.

    Voters want fighters who can take a punch and deliver them in return.

  3. Not a perfectly apples to apples comparison because the full time employed are a relatively elite segment of the black population. In whites not so much.

  4. I have learned from reading the NYT that any income gap between genders is proof of “systemic sexism.”

    So if Chetty’s data show an opportunity gap between genders (with race held constant), then he has proven the existence of sexism. It just so happens that the systemic sexism is pro-female and anti-male.

    The policy implications are clear: racial preferences should be limited to black men only.
