all i'm saying is that i hope i'm holding up that well at 50
i'm 35 and yeah, basically. i get the feeling that people roughly five or more years older than me might have a different reaction though lol
i didn't include the Seeberg incident because it was settled out of court and is legally kind of a difficult thing to write about (because of how ND handled it internally), but it suffices to say that i really, really, REALLY hate brian kelly
they're all juicing my dude
there's a lot (a LOT) i could say about this entire subject, but
To prove the point in the continued inequality one has to look no further than the home ownership gap in this country. Home ownership is often considered the easiest way to build some wealth in this country. In 1970 the home ownership rate of the black community was 41.6% it is currently at 44%, where as white home ownership has maintained around 75% to 78% during that time.
if anyone is interested at all in how some of this happened, and a solid, devastating example of systemic racism, please read the following: http://powerreporting.com/color/
tl;dr, essentially: the AJC found out that banks in atlanta had been refusing to give out home loans to blacks for generations, regardless of their financial status. you had a better chance of securing a large home loan as a poor white person than as a wealthy black one, and this had been going on for decades. they took this reporting national and it turned out that this had been happening all over the country, and eventually congress had to amend ECOA in 1991 to prevent discrimination against minorities. it didn't work (not completely), and there are still issues with this nationwide today.
