Do Liberals Hate Young, Black American Men?
Boston Herald ^ | June 14, 2013 | Michael Graham

Do liberals hate Boston’s young black men?

If you knew nothing about politics but everything about economics and jobs, that’s what you’d think.

Under the leadership of Mayor Tom Menino, Gov. Deval Patrick and President Obama (the Mount Rushmore of Massachusetts-style liberalism), unemployment for black teenagers is around 40 percent — about 600 percent higher than overall joblessness.

And what are Beacon Hill Democrats pushing? An increase in the minimum wage to $11 an hour — aka “The ‘Hire Fewer Entry-Level Minority Employees’ Act of 2013.”

The Boston Globe-Democrat claimed economists are “divided” on the impact of raising the minimum wage on employment.

If you actually read the article (I don’t recommend it) you’ll find even they concede that they only dispute how much it hurts the job market.

“A research paper published in the Journal of Human Resources … concluded that when minimum wage rose, some low-wage workers’ hours and employment fell and their income declined as a result.”

Economist James Dorn writing in Forbes magazine is even more specific:

“There is abundant evidence that a 10 percent increase in the minimum wage leads to a 1 to 3 percent decrease in employment of low-skilled workers (using teens as a proxy) in the short run, and to a larger decrease in the long run, along with rising unemployment.”

That’s not stopping the local loony-lefties. Boston City Council candidate Seamus Whalen is having a rally tomorrow for a $15/hour minimum wage, and U.S. Sen. Liz Warren has suggested the ideal would be closer to $22/hour, if the minimum wage had kept pace with worker productivity.

While you’re at it, why not drive through low-income neighborhoods with a megaphone and shout “Just stay home! Don’t even bother looking for a job!”

The good news is...

The simple truth is “Yes Liberals hate Blacks in general and especially young Black Men”.

The short answer would be, what don’t Liberals hate. If you are not exactly like them, they have no use for you. They think they love, but they are oh so confused. I have never seen a more judge-mental, confrontational lot.

Minimum wage increase always get caught by inflation. On the other hand, drilling for lower cost oil and allowing companies less red tape would go a looooong way to decrease prices and make life affordable. THe minimum wage meme is another “look at the numerator but not the denominator” fraud. Just like a prius consumes more than a big truck simply because weight for weight and people load up for load up, the truck is more efficient.

If you were a Klan leader who wanted to destroy black Americans, you would support the Democrats in almost every respect. I suspect quite a few Democrat leaders today in fact agree with the Klan and giggle (liberals giggle when they are not on camera) over how they get rich supporting Klan goals while blacks still vote for them.

Why don’t Progressives just ban business altogether. Nobody works. Handouts as long as they can get away with printing valueless money and the stockpile of goods and food dries up. Progressive my butt...

This problem will be solved once Rubio and Ryan get that immigration amnesty bill on Obama’s desk to add many more minimum wage type unskilled unemployed to compete with them.

Way to go GOP. Big Business loves you!

I can tell you that Obama’s lectures on redistribution treats his own skin pigment like getting AIDS through his mother’s own infection with a black man. You and I know he does not even kiss his wife, even in public. He is disgusted by the black man and is a self hater. Oh, he will use the skin racism as a refuge of scoundrels against white when it is useful, but deep down you know liberals are patent homophobes, povertyphobe blingers and racists. Notwithstanding they think they are some hot SS Nazi sh!t when promoting abortion for the peasant and “gay pride” for the low people, while avoiding Obamacare for themselves.

WAKE THE HECL UP AMERICA

Answer - no, liberals love them, as long as those young black men were/are kept to ‘their places’.

As always, don’t listen to what liberals say but observe what they do.

Why don't they just make it $100 an hour and be done with it?!

Proverbs 26:24 “People with hate in their may sound pleasant enough, but don’t believe them (25) Though they pretend to be kind their hearts are full of all kinds of evil. (26 While their hatred may be concealed by trickery, it will finally come to light for all to see.”

“They think they love”...
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

When you know who they refers to those four words say it all.
They really are amazing, constantly referring to others as haters while spouting the most hateful language imaginable and most of it based on lies they seem to believe even though no sane person ever could.

You mean, do they hate young black men more than they hate everyone else?

Progressive insanity is what it is. I remember when very few people spouted absurdity on a regular basis and those who did were not elected to office they were looked on as adult children who needed compassionate treatment. Now they think they are the brilliant leaders who should be in charge simply because those who know better don’t set them straight. I am no longer willing to listen to their foolishness without informing them that they are mentally ill.

Do Liberals hate American young black males?

A well known, melanin enhanced, uber-Liberal Representative was quoted as saying he was anxious when he thought he heard young men behind him when he was afot in Washington, DC one night.

Said “well known, melanin enhanced, uber-Liberal Representative” further stated he was relieved to turn around a discover they were white, not black.

Sometimes truth does come from the mouth of a Liberal.

Not to worry, as a result of the amnesty, blacks won’t have to worry about finding a job.

Question: Do liberals hate young black men?

Answer: Absolutely. They must keep them on the plantation by promising them other people’s stuff (aka “loot”) and stoking race hatred, victimhood, and entitlement mentality. The result is a culture of barbarians.
