Race and unemployment

”Unemployment rate for black 16 to 24-year-olds available for work now double that for white counterparts, ONS data shows’‘.

Our current political consensus is that inequality needs to be exploited in the name of austerity. Inequality is measurable and specific and manifests itself in concrete ways. This is not shocking. This was inevitable. The only people this is shocking to are those whose attention span is dictated by a news cycle dictated by the right wing press.   It is insulting to pretend it is accidental after 3 decades of the same schtick.
