Democratic Politicians Pay Minority Staffers 7/10 of What They Pay Whites

Call it the Democratic Party’s modern version of the Three-Fifths compromise that counted slaves as 3/5ths of a white person. The modern Democratic Party, unlike its slaveholding days, has upgraded black people to 7/10s of a white person.

Going from 6/10ths of a person to 7/10ths of a person doesn’t seem like that much of an upgrade. But who are we to question the professionally anti-racist party of racism?

Democratic federal-level campaigns are paying minority staffers significantly less than their white counterparts, according to a study from the New Organizing Institute (NOI).

“African American staffers on Democratic federal-level campaigns are paid 70 cents on the dollar compared to their white counterparts; Hispanics are paid 68 cents on the dollar,” writes Ethan Roeder, executive director of NOI.

The notoriously racist Republicans not only pay women more than the Democrats do, but Republicans pay Blacks and Hispanics 9/10s of their white employees.
