the bureau of labor statistics actually proves the disparity of consumption among races; showing that blacks and hispanics spend up to 30% more than whites with comparable incomes on visible goods (clothes, cars, jewelry).
but to hell with comparison because, again, i could care less about what white people spend their money on. doesn't mean our conspicuous spending habits shouldn't be analyzed.
uuuuggh, this topic frustrates me sooo much because i don't foresee any tangible progress coming out of our talking heads.
we're way to complacent. the first step in healing is admitting that there is a problem and owning up to our contribution to said problem.
but maybe we don't see the need for economic progress at all.
by we, i mean the collective we. not anyone in particular.
