Only nine percent of blacks disapprove of Obamacare, versus only 29 percent of whites who do approve.
But 91 percent of blacks approve. [Obamacare’s Latino Push May Give Democrats Political Edge, Bloomberg.com, 9-30-13]:
About 61 percent of Hispanics approve of the health-care law, compared with 29 percent of whites and 91 percent of blacks, according to a Pew Research Center and USA Today survey conducted Sept. 4-8. Hispanics will outnumber whites in California next year for the first time and will represent almost half of residents by 2060, the state’s Finance Department said in January.
America in 2060 will look a lot like Newark in 2013.
Helen M. Stummer published a photo essay of Newark in Society magazine back in 1987 with the title, “Ordinary Miseries.” Here’s what she wrote of life in a world devoid of whiteness:
I have seen blocks of abandoned and burned-out buildings – blocks of rubble-filled lots shared by children and rats – and people who reflect the effects of despair common to that environment. At times, I have also seen hope and a transcending of the spirit in spite of these surroundings. But mostly, what I have seen reminds me of Dante’s inferno.
Before I take photographs, I always tell people what I am trying to do. I tell them that I want to show others what it is like to live in a ghetto – how hard it is, how harsh it is. Everyone helps me. They all hate the crime, the garbage, the fires, the rats, the crowded conditions. In many ways, it breaks my heart that people look to me as a hope, a hope that my work will stir others and that changes will be made, changes that will directly improve their lives.
Every time I drive into the ghetto, I ask myself why. Why does this devastation exist? Why are there so many abandoned buildings? Why are the only good roads the ones that are used by suburbanites to get to the downtown area each day?
There’s your America of 2060, reflected in the present world of Newark of the post-1967 riot.
Obamacare is nothing more than a white-tax, an investment in the future health of non-whites at the expense of whites today (and their future).
All so the entire nation can look like the Newark of the past 45 years.
Earl Ofari Hutchinson, writing at the Huffington Post’s ‘Black Voices’ section, can’t contain his zeal at how Obamacare will positively impact the lives of uninsured (and incredibly unhealthy) black people [Obamacare Is a Triumph for African-Americans, 9-29-13].
Remember what Valerie Jarrett, an advisor to Obama, said at the National Association of Black Journalists (NABJ) conference in 2012, putting Obamacare under a racial microscope and revealing what the naked-eye couldn’t see:
On Saturday afternoon, Jarrett spoke with members of the Trotter Group of African American columnists and with regional reporters, and again outlined what she considered the Obama administration’s successes, among them funding for historically black colleges and universities; health care reform, which she said will disproportionately help African Americans; and reducing disparities between penalties for possession of crack and for powdered cocaine.
Just 29 percent of whites…
The American Experiment will always end with the sad ruins of Newark as the outcome, no matter how times you go back to simulation and toss in new variables, hoping for a different end-result.
The black man chooses and the white man pays.
Isn’t that the perfect moniker for defining the American way of life?
