Brandeis University’s Institute on Assets and Social Policy released a report that found that the wealth gap between white and African-American families more than quadrupled in the last quarter century. In 1984, the median value of financial assets for white families in America — not including home equity — amounted to $22,000. The median value for African-American families was $2,000.

According to the Pew Economic Mobility Project, the vast majority of federal deductions and benefits to enhance upward mobility ended up in the hands of the wealthiest Americans. For instance, between 72 percent and 98 percent of deductions for retirement savings, health insurance, home mortgages, self-employed health insurance, and preferential rates on capital gains in 2006 went to the top 20 percent of income-earning Americans.

Oh yeah, that's right. Well, let's keep on truckin' to that plutocracy. What could go wrong, right?
