Mr. Jackson, I disagree. It's not minimum wage that is hurting blacks. It's a lack of well paying manufacturing jobs. Most of them are shipped over to China and the like. All that's left is corporate jobs that are mainly HR, marketing/sales related and service related jobs. Food, retail and the like. Don't you think it's ironic that Apple who makes all their phone in China has to come up with a low cost version for China? Their own workers can't afford their product.
