Today's Headlines (Detroit News)

The closing of automotive plants in Michigan is a racist plot. Well that's not what the article in today's Detroit News says, but it makes quite a note of the fact that a bigger percentage of the black community is being badly hurt by these plant closings than the white community.

Excuse me! The pain of unemployment and watching your job fade away is the same regardless of your skin color. The black community is getting hit harder, not because of a racist plot, but because of the percentage of that community working in the auto industry. This is an economic and cultural problem, not a race problem.

Wait, you're saying that a bigger portion of Detroit is black, therefore a bigger portion of the work force is black, so a bigger portion of the layoffs will be black.

What did you do pass math in high school?

I hate it when the media tries to turn an event into something it's not.

I don't think any company shuts plants based on the percentage of minorities working there....

Anything to sell papers. Sad. More than sad. It really pisses me off when they pull the race card.
