Obama cars coming soon! Having a car is a basic right, just like a phone and healthcare! /s
They’ll get their cars, but won’t use them for work. I worked in a city that was 40% black. My daily commute took me all the way through the city on the freeway, about 16 miles of urbanland total.
The thing that stuck out to me was that during our congregated commute, I rarely saw a black person driving...maybe 5% of drivers. Same thing if I left work during 6 PM rush.
But, if you drove the same stretch of freeway at 10 or 11 PM, which I did at least 3 days a week on my way home from work, there were a disproportionate amount of blacks heading to and fro.
I’m sure there are other factors at play, such as whites living in suburbs, but I always thought the commute disparity was interesting nonetheless.
