I’ve called it for a while. America went from racism to socio-economic discrimination. It’s easy to blame someone for being poor. But why they’re poor is never addressed and it’s assumed it’s because they’re lazy.

But in reality, in America for a minority to succeed you have to be the best of the best and the deck is stacked against you. Chris Rock says it best in his standup routine, in order to get the house he lives in now he had to be one of the best and successful comedians in America. The white guy living next to him, is just a dentist. He had to soar to get something the white man can just walk to.
