Jesse Jackson makes money from crusades, real or manufactured, against black discrimination. US tech companies have been targeted for hiring too few blacks (and Latinos). Google, etc. have all admitted there is a problem, and such “civil rights activists” sensing the blood in the water, the vulnerability of White Guilt, moved in for the kill.
The usual narrative is that whites don’t hire blacks, because whites hate nonwhites or enjoy inexplicable “white privilege”. This narrative usually works, but the US is becoming increasingly diverse, especially among the young. Blacks continue to underperform even with affirmative action and growing diversity. Other minorities have become competitors.
The harsh reality is blacks enjoy a better standard of living no where than in white majority societies and those that cater predominantly to white tourists. As diversity increases in the US, blacks will receive a diminishing share of the white pie, which is to say blacks will have to actually work for a larger portion of what they receive.
Obama, the great black hope, just passed a massive amnesty for illegal residents, using powers he doesn’t legally possess. Blacks overwhelmingly support Obama, so they overwhelmingly assume this amnesty is in their interests. It thwarts Republicans, and it thwarts oppressive white people. Whites must be oppressive, because any other explanation paints blacks in a negative light.
Cue this latest news: “Jesse Jackson: Get rid of foreign tech workers“.
Hopefully we’re seeing the first cracks in the Rainbow Coalition. While there’s little hope whites will ever grow a backbone to stand against, well, anything unpopular (whites have a need to be loved and accepted, to stand for what’s publicly acknowledged as “good”), we might finally see a change in the political trajectory due to shifting nonwhite political alliances, by which I mean squabbles over the white pie.
