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

There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions. John Adams

If you run the plantation, why would you bother paying the inmates what you're paying the guards?
