Skip to comments.Evan Thomas: 'White Men Dropping Out of Workforce' -'Going Hunting, Fishing'
Posted on 12/29/2012 2:42:23 PM PST by drewh
Former Newsweek editor Evan Thomas made a bizarre statement on PBS's Inside Washington Friday.
"Unexplored story of the year: white men dropping out - dropping out of the workforce, dropping out of elections, just plain dropping out, getting social security, not doing anything, going hunting, fishing, just not in the game" (video follows with transcript and commentary, file photo):

Sounds good to me. Collapse the system.
Yes, Going Galt.
I resemble that remark.
Huh? Been doing that all my life.
Meanwhile, Obambi the Deer Leader straddles all of the strife, calmly watching from above, sort of like God. Right, Evan?
Odd. As a white, male, 61-year-old cripple, with several chronic ailments and a failing memory, I have people lined up at my door every morning trying to give me jobs.
I’m just too lazy to take one.
Maybe they’ll end up hiring some deserving member of a minority, who has heretofore been held down by melanin enrichment.
Yep, I still vote and add disc golf to the list of what I’m doing that’s me all over!!
Yeah. I think it’s called “retirement”.
How about us white women? That will be me in 2013!
Hey, if white guys have dropped out....
Who is paying for everything?
Oh wait, nevermind.
Hmm...I wonder why? Is it because hard work is no longer rewarded (by both society and specifically women?). Nah...that couldn't be it.
“Just not in the game” —what?
They are playing the game just as assiduously as ever, there’s just ONE little catch —they see the ever more vast forces arrayed against them, and they’re joining the OTHER side.
No hip-hop music, no baby-mommas, but just a very quiet, personal decision to stop milked, and then loudly maligned for BEING milked.
“You didn’t build that...!” You know what? At some point it’s just enough.
The real story. Down with the cause brothers with not a drop of corn pone blood are beneficiaries of Obama's new normal America.
Well, WTH do they expect? White men are vilified and marginalized and passed over in favor of less qualified minorities or other protected groups. Why should they be surprised?
I’d be golfing.
Best way to the undermine the Kenyan’s communist coup is still to go John Galt.
The actual four-year labor force participation decline for the entire population is 3.34 percent (2.2 delta divided by November '08's 65.8 rate).
For white men it's 3.55 percent (2.7 divided by 75.9).
For white women it's 3.47 percent (2.1 divided by 60.5).
For black men it's 4.68 percent (3.3 divided by 70.4)
For black women it's 3.26 percent (2.1 divided by 64.5).
As such, white men have dropped out of the labor force at an insignificantly faster rate rate than the rest of the population and at almost the same rate as white women.
