    god fucking damn.

    human rights issues come way before economic issues. this is basic maslow's hierarchy shit. go ahead and focus on free college or whatever the fuck else you're dreaming of while the graduates of said college still get paid less if they are black, or female, or both.

    it's like building on top of a broken foundation. it won't work.

    Yet many social problems in America are caused or exacerbated by worsening income and wealth inequality.

    You quoting Maslow makes me wonder if you're intentionally trying to distract from that fact.

    many income and wealth inequality problems in america are solely due to the social inequality.

    ask any black person or woman or hispanic person about that one.

    you have it ass backwards.

    Respectfully, it is you who have things backwards.

    In any case, I'll meet you in the middle and call the issues inseparable; racial and gender equality can't happen without economic equity.

    However, this is about more than race or gender; it's become about classism- yet another subject you have trouble addressing.

    Racial and gender equality absolutely can be addressed without your hard left fantasies coming through.

    Please don't try to conflate the issues for the benefit of something else just to try prove yourself correct.

    If you don't know anything about economics or history, especially the history of economics
    You probably shouldn't post like you have some knowledge on the subject's

    again, 100% backwards.

    to ignore the fact that economic inequality is caused by racial and gender inequality is why bernie lost among black people and women.

    systemic racism and sexism causes economic inequality, not the other way around.

    This does not address the runaway classism this country has seen.

    the people you need to reach to win a democratic primary are less concerned about classism than the fact that they get paid less because they are black or female or latinx.

    That's your assumption, not mine.

    so you think i am assuming that black and female and latinx voters care more about racism than classism?

    maybe try canvassing like i did and actually talking to high, medium, and low propensity voters. then tell me what you think.

    Propensity? To what?

    to vote.

    when you are trying to get people to vote, it is a good idea to go talk to them.

    we classify voters as high, medium, and low propensity and allocate our resources as best we can based on that.

    have you never actually worked on a campaign before?

    You guys are watching the one hand, while the other hand is slighting you.
    Unless you are a CEO there is a very high probability of your job being automated in the near future.
    Most of us are completely obsolete apart from playing the role of consumers.

    Turns out that the job of CEO is pretty susceptible to automation as well!

    Your point is well made and that's why I'm taking about income and wealth inequality as a social and economic problem.
