planing about systemic racism but aren't. Isn't that same group inherently systemically racist in there? Increased enthusiasm for higher and higher minimum wage laws Explain how that works. Well, sure, we should recognize the fact that minimum wage lost. First of all, we're historically were in many cases intended the block African American participation in many labor fields. If you go back to the people who who sponsored this legislation in many cases, they were explicit about the fact that they were trying. They were worried about African American laborers undercutting white lady Labor wages many ways the same way that people will not worry about immigrants undercutting wages. And they wanted to prevent Africa America from getting into these labor field. So they created occupational licensing laws. They created union shops When African Americans couldn't belong to the unions. They created the minimum wage waas that that's essentially priced out. A lot of African Americans from the labor market now today, advocates of minimum wage certainly are not racist. Nobody's out there saying I'm trying to keep African Americans have the labor force, but it still has the same impact of doing so is particularly for young African American men, particularly those who don't have a lot of attachments and labor force or a big skill set, it blocks entry level.
