The Vicious Vortex of Palatably Promoting Poverty

The African-American population is disproportionately represented in the American prison system.

The African-American vote is also disproportionately in favor of Democratic candidates.

Democratic candidates are disproportionately in favor of dependency programs and the minimum wage law.

Dependency programs are disproportionately correlated with single-parent households.

Single-parent households are disproportionately associated with African-American families.

Adolescents of single-parent households are disproportionately associated with low household income, both of which are disproportionately connected with violent behaviorlow academic achievement and low self-esteem.

Low academic achievement is disproportionately tied to low income.

The minimum wage law disproportionately affects the African-American teen who's helplessly subjected to unemployment and then remains hopelessly mired in low self-esteem and a burgeoning dependency system which accomplishes nothing in the way of cultivating marketable skills.

Individuals with low academic achievement, low self-esteem, violent behavior and low income are disproportionately represented in the American prison system.

African-American men are disproportionately represented in this system, which leaves their children to perpetually stave off this statistical threat into perpetuity.



So it appears through this sequence of logic that the disproportionate outcomes have been widely driven by a disproportionate proclivity of the African-American demographic for public policy peddled by Democratic, or neo-liberal, candidates and officeholders.

The perpetual struggle of this group may then be attributed to a gross misunderstanding of public policies' effects on the world and, more specifically, their own demographic.

The Kaepernick Craze: Exposing the Nation's Fools One Conversation at a Time

The Kaeparnick craze and other viral movements haven't merely pressured people into becoming simpler caricatures of their prior selves, but they have manifestly exposed people for how foolish and uninformed they've been all along. 



In his final year in the NFL, Kaepernick ranked 17th in passer rating and 34th the year before that. 

He played through an entire season in only two of his six years in the league, and his best full-season performance ranks far outside of the NFL's top-250 single-season passing performances in the league's history. 

For reference, the oft-criticized Tony Romo posted a career passer rating of 97.1, as compared to Kaepernick's 88.9. 

Romo's passer rating dipped below 90 for only one season of the eleven seasons he played, whereas Kaepernick failed to eclipse the 90 mark on three of his six seasons, a full 50 percent of his time in the NFL. 

In fact, Kaepernick accomplished this feat only once if we are to discard those other two seasons in …

Institutional Racism: The Sasquatch of Political Folklore

A great confusion has arisen out of the clamor of political debate, one which presupposes that any dismissal of the merits of “institutional racism” somehow equates to one’s rejection of personal struggle. 

Whereas the struggle of any individual remains always and everywhere unique and wholly personal, his common bond of complexion with others who have struggled serves inadequately as the basis for any argument which regards this commonality as the cause, or as the reason, for that veritable struggle. 

To condemn the unidentifiable and nebulous abstraction, then, by castigating an unnamed institution which persists beyond our specific capacity to recognize its power, serves only to absolve individuals of their personal responsibility, to shift blame and culpability to a specter which exists only by the creative designs of our imaginations, which exists as the scapegoat for all outcomes popularly maligned as undesirable. 

This unactionable practice, then, swiftly and categorically excuses…

Homelessness More Lucrative than $150,000/Year Job in SF Bay Area

Most people in the United States long for a $150,000-per-year salary. This makes sense, as the nation's median personal income is roughly 80 percent below that mark. 

It's a lot of money. 

In fact, this income level qualifies for the top 4 percent of Americans and the top 0.1 percent of the world's population; it is 109 times the global average.

If this is true, how could an unemployed homeless person possibly make more money? Well, the federal, state and local governments: that's how!

Let's take a look at the numbers.

A single Bay-Area Californian earning $150,000 per year pays an effective income tax rate of 32.23 percent: this figure is inclusive of a 7.20-percent effective state income tax (and 9.30-percent marginal rate), an 18.27-percent effective federal income tax (and 24.00-percent marginal rate), and a 6.76-percent effective rate for Federal Insurance Contributions Act (FICA) taxes. 



In addition to income taxes, the homeowner incurs an annual mortgage cost amou…
