The San Jose Bubble

Politicians talk to the media. --> Media publish what the politicians say. --> Politicians believe the media. --> Media feel really smart because the politicians believe what they publish.

Lather. Rinse. Repeat.

Eugenicizing the "least educated" white people

An interesting article that illustrates two truths that the People Inside the Bubble simply don't know:
  1. Those people labeled as "white people" by the Bubble-ists are NOT benefiting from "white skin privilege";
  2. Poorly known (or cunningly unspoken) social, political, or cultural factors are working to selectively reduce the population of "white people" disproportionately compared to populations of other skin group demographics.

'Alarming': Life span drops sharply for least educated whites

"The steepest declines were for white women without a high school diploma, who lost five years of life between 1990 and 2008, said S. Jay Olshansky, a public health professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago and the lead investigator on the study, published last month in Health Affairs. By 2008, life expectancy for black women without a high school diploma had surpassed that of white women of the same education level, the study found. "
