What kind of person has been getting killed by the recession so far?

“Older white males hurt more by this recession,” trumpets USA Today. I think that says it all. You should be ashamed of yourselves, young black women. It’s your fault. “White men over 55 had a record 6.5% unemployment rate in the second quarter,” while “The most remarkable change is in the unemployment rate for black women: 12.2%, far below the historic peak of 20% in 1983.”
So while black ladies were getting all the jobs, older white males were losing their jobs, leading their unemployment rate to soar to more than half that of your unemployment rate, minority women! The selfishness on display in our society today would make many people sick, such as Abraham Lincoln.
It’s just like the mess we always hear about saving “small business.” Hey, here’s an idea: let’s save big business. It’s bigger! Big business was also a leading employer of white men. Exxon was once the most profitable corporation ever seen on God’s Green Earth; but this quarter, its towering profits fell by two thirds. They couldn’t even crack the $4 billion net revenue mark in the last three months.
Who else gets hurt? White men owning Exxon stock. And the native tribes of various oil-rich third world regions. They get hurt as well.
Yeah, we sort of figured they would feel like that…
