      we are black ourselves and some of those I am speaking of are also minorities of differing races and heritage I don't it is the main reason why.  BUT.....in some people, sure it's an issue; at least I too believe it is...just not the main issue.  I personally think it is way more a greed issue.  Americans are getting more and more greedy, even if they really are middle class, even barely.  If they have anything....you better not tell them they might have to give up one red cent of it to anyone.  The think the big bad government is going to take everything they have and give it all to the "bums" who do nothing.  No thought at all to people who are ill or disadvantaged, or an immigrant or a single or abused woman or a minority who has never been given a break ever or any other thousands of reasons someone might need a little government help.  It's really disgusting IMO.  My own husband falls in this category.  He likes the democrats for their labor stance and racial issues but don't get him started on taxes or social programs.

      not thinking rationally.

      Some union members bitch about union dues.. apparently forgetting the old adage: "you have to spend money in order to make money".

      Let's see if these whiners are OK with $12.00 an hour and little to no benefits-- that is where they are headed.
