NAMs and financial troubles: Steve Sailer has made a strong case that the practice of giving minorities home mortgages they couldn't pay back was an important cause of the current economic crisis. If you're like me, your anger is directed mostly at the elites who exploit political correctness for personal gain. Unfortunately, I can't document their greed with surveys, so this blog is typically left with the next best thing: showing that the political correctness is lies and bullshit.
The General Social Survey asked people a number of questions about financial troubles. Here are the percentages who answered yes by ethnic group (N = 1,873):
Percent who have been pressured to pay bills in the past year
American Indian 24.4
All Americans 15.0
Percent who have had car repossessed in the past year
American Indian 5.6
All Americans 1.0
Percent who had to pawn stuff in the past year
American Indian 8.9
All Americans 5.4
As we've seen with posts dealing with many different indicators, NAMs by their own admission have higher rates of social problems than others. They are not simply whites or Asians in cockeyed baseball hats, and they're not marionettes to the white puppet master.
