Just the tip… of the non-existent iceberg. Some not so important things about some of the biggest debates in our times. There are some seriously great research links below, also.
How data on income inequality and the wealth gap often misses key components to the argument at hand.
How data tells a different story depending on how much groups are broken into subgroups.
Evidence against the theory of continued white supremacy in the US that is consistently ignored or diminished in its importance.
Evidence against oppression being the cause of income inequality, the wealth gap, and less income for ‘minorities’, in light of the advancement of other minorities.
Researching backwards rather than forward without prior conclusions.
Can we experience life through data and reports, summarized with an agenda, rather than interacting with the world? Continued in Part 3. *cliffhanger*
As always, thank you for watching! Talk soon.
