Around the DC area, there is a strong black middle class. Many are highly educated with master’s degrees or higher, and have pretty strong families. Most are directly or indirectly connected to government money though, and so they will vote to keep the money flowing as long as possible. But when the inevitable cuts have to happen, they will be cut like everyone else. They will have to take a step down in pay when they enter the private sector, but it isn’t like they don’t have any marketable skills. They will survive.
LOL, I sure am glad to hear that.
The last part of this excerpt provides the reason for the first part. The only reason there is a strong Negro middle class is due to the Government jobs, or the requirement for the private contractors to hire them, all due to affirmative action and not merit. Over 60% of all Government employees in the DC area are Negroes.
Masters degrees? Let me look at where they got the degrees from: Degree mills? The insipid USDA Masters program? Light weight local programs that have no real education value?
The answer is mostly all of the above as I have spent over 20 years here in the DC area and have had to contend with hiring the ignorant and the pseudo-educated minorities just to keep my job or contracts (high tech engineering research & development).
I have had to deal working with minority Government employees who should be sweeping floors rather than be GS13's and above. In all these years I remember only three minorities who actually had an IQ and deserved their jobs. All three refused to associate with the others of their color and would say so to anyone who asked. Those three remain my friends to this day.
I never thought I would say or type things like this but after I was stationed here over 20 years ago I refused to ignore the facts as presented. It is a shame we have let things go this far.
