    than all the others?  I've become cynical as to the basis for the obvious cronyism that is so pervasive in our country, and the benefits of our economy are not widely dispersed in society.

    Hypothetically speaking of course,  if a highly disproportionate ethnic representation  of Italian Catholics,  or Irish Protestants,  or say Shiite Muslims, represented not only the top positions of the Wall St tribe,  but also most of those who are entrusted to regulate them...... just how well does that work in providing effective justice, consumer protection and or minimizing cronyism?   Unless human nature has been reset in the new millennium it distorts everything.

    Hollywood has never had a problem shining the spotlight and self defining stereotypical behavior of certain ethnic groups and trashing them if they can make money from it.     I don't make money from it but I have no problem recognizing bias and bigotry towards others.

    I don't understand the obvious bias and lack of diversity in Obama's top appointments.   Is he racist against the majority of the USA or what is it?

    Victims of bigotry are the poorest, least influential members of society.......never the wealthiest, most educated, most overrepresented in high levels, and most influential. Bigotry hurts the least influential. To claim or say otherwise is absurd.
