The last year in which black unemployment was lower than white unemployment – 1930 – was also the last year in which there was no federal minimum wage law. The Davis-Bacon Act of 1931 was openly advocated by some members of Congress on grounds that it would stop black construction workers from taking jobs from white construction workers by working for less than the union wages of white workers.

If Black lives matter all that much, and Critical Race Theory reigning supreme (so it seems), why are we seeing Black Lives Matter (BLM) and Social Justice Warriors all up in arms about wages being colonized and racist? And that minimum wage be toppled just like all the Founders statues, right?
