Study: Democrats Pay Minority Campaign Staffers Significantly Less than Whites

I guess I’ll just take another cue from the fool who wears jammies but is not in fact Pajama Boy. Check this out.
Democratic federal-level campaigns are paying minority staffers significantly less than their white counterparts, according to a study from the New Organizing Institute (NOI).
“African American staffers on Democratic federal-level campaigns are paid 70 cents on the dollar compared to their white counterparts; Hispanics are paid 68 cents on the dollar,” writes Ethan Roeder, executive director of NOI.
The study finds that although Republican campaign staffs hire a disproportionately high number of white men, the income disparities between racial groups are not nearly as pronounced as on Democratic campaigns.
JWF calls this “racism, straight up,” and it’s hard to argue with that.
It’s supermassive-black-hole ironic given the Democrats’ year on year use of the race weapon to bludgeon Republicans, plus President Obama’s own perpetual campaign on “fairness” and “equality.” Every time he gets in trouble, and sometimes when he’s just feeling his leftist oats, Barack Obama delivers a speech on “you didn’t build that” or “it’s just not fair.” They’re all variations on a statist theme. If he really believes in fairness and wants to set any kind of example, should he not tend to his own house first before poking anyone else in the eye?
I’m thinking that he could be Alinskied on this, not that I’m a fan of Alinsky tactics. But one of those tactics is to make your opponent live by his own rules. Well, Obama is the one who keeps bringing up “fairness.” Most people realized by the time they were about 15 that life isn’t fair and you just have to deal with it. Evidently he didn’t. It’s more than fair to point out that the party he leads, the party of secession and “white primaries” and Jim Crow back in the day, still institutionalizes racism. And he hasn’t done a thing about it.
