A Really Big Thing I Wish Wasn't True About New York City

Go caw yourself

This Jim Dwyer Times column actually does make the case quite well that New York City actively works to retain its 50% jobless rate for black men of working age-or increase it, I suppose, as the racial disparity in official unemployment increased during the latest recession-and that the City has a system of policies and procedures to not only create success and profit for the white and/or already well-off but also to keep black and/or poor people excluded from opportunity, not only by barring them from avenues of success but by introducing them disproportionately to the criminal justice system.
