Modern Day "Slavery By Another Name" Captured on Cell Phone! (Racism, Servitude, And White Privilege)

I share for all who think our nation has moved well away from Jim Crow. For those who are naive enough to not recognize "white privilege" is prevalent in our society, think much more and much deeper. It is a close as any boss raised to hate and disrespect based on skin color and power over the powerless.

Do you recall this?

“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do. 

“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”

Yes, of course, Fox News hero, racist and tax evader, Cliven Bundy.
While people such as Bundy and the example you are about to hear are scorned by the majority of Americans, those same Americans should recognize ours is not a world cleared of racism. In fact, the boss in the following video should have charges filed against him for violation of Civil Rights "accommodation" Law, Yet, he will escape such scrutiny and fall in that real of "states rights" and libertarian dogma so prevalent on the polio/social Right
