Racism, Straight Up: Democrat Campaign Staffers Paid Significantly Less Than Whites

Posted by Jammie on Dec 20, 2013 at 9:12 am

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.

Barack Obama’s reelection campaign received criticism during the 2012 elections for a picture of his Chicago headquarters that revealed a lack of diversity; it responded by making a push to hire more African Americans.

Naturally, as a means of distracting people from Obama’s massive failures, Democrats plan to focus on income inequality in 2014.

Democrats worn down by the disastrous rollout of Obamacare are working to refocus Congress on an issue much more favorable to the Left: income disparity, including an extension of federal unemployment benefits and a higher minimum wage.

Great. They can start with their own staffers

If you run the plantation, why would you bother paying the inmates what you're paying the guards?
I won't vote for Clinton, but I cannot vote for Trump.  How could I explain to my daughter why I supported a man who sees her as nothing more than a piece of meat, a piece of a$$ for him to grope for his own private pleasure.

"Trump supporter" - the very definition of an SFI
