    Really, you think black voters have undue political power in the USA?

    The facts do not support your theory. As a group they are far poorer, have far less representation in Congress as a percentage than their actual population. They have far less household wealth than caucasian families. They have not scored any major policy victories in nearly half a century- in fact the voting rights act was recently allowed to expire and the SCOTUS has gutted voter protections while disenfranchisement schemes have been widely reported across the country since.

    There is no evidence the courts are on their side or have a black issues bias. None. There is mountains of socio-economic data that clearly shows that, as a group, they are substantially worse off today than they were ten years ago-- household wealth, life-span, economic mobility-- ALL DOWN.

    The truth is that all groups not in the top few percent have lost ground over the last 40+ years. That's in the hard data and long-term trends.

    QED.

    The fact that blacks have worse socio-economic outcomes on average than whites does not prove a lack of political power. Asians have better socio-economic outcomes on average than whites. Does that prove that Asians have a disproportionate amount of political power?

    I'd say blacks are doing very well in terms of their political power in the U.S. considering they are 14% of the population yet have managed to get racial preferences built into the economic system for their benefit. Racial preferences in college admissions and employment are a huge socio-economic advantage.

    Oh yeah, and we have a black president, the most powerful political position in the country.

    I'm really happy with the Tivos and one pass for a lot of content at Netflix and Amazon.

    Guess I'll stay tuned as we continue to speculate and talk about soda versus coke ;)
