This is really where the rubber meets the road. Not to disrupt the Larry Elder feeding-fest, but I thought he was making some good points right up until he gives the "suggestion" to invest in yourself. Obviously, if your not trying to better yourself than none of this matters. It never hits home. How can you be held down by racism if your not trying to go anywhere? I think the reason that this idiot is a conservative is because he has bought the party line of the...

About a month or so ago there was a panel discussion on C-SPAN about Politics and Humor, Vernon Jordan was on this panel. He was the last to be introduced and while all the white panelist education, career accomplishments were mentioned as they were being introduced, the first thing the white guy who introduced everyone said about Vernon Jordan was that he is articulate and Vernon Jordan just grinned like a good Negro.

That's like saying when I buy something from someone, every person other than that someone loses. Ridiculous. No one in either side is made worse off in your hypothetical. A company is taking its own money and investing it. It's not taking someone else's money. There's no zero-sum here.

It is not at all obvious that A's gain is B's loss. That's why your argument about manufacturing jobs fell flat.

Investment seekers in the US may have "lost" competition for investment dollars, but they have not lost anything tangible. They are just as well off as they were before the US company decided to invest its profits. Some specific group may not be as well off as they could have been , but...

The situation was that a company decides to invest money in China. You can't just assume job turnover (let alone job loss) from that situation. Business invest in other countries all the time, and it doesn't equate to job loss or job turnover. If you had decided to insert your ignorance in the beginning of the debate rather than in the middle, you might've known that. If I buy noodles from China, that doesn't mean someone in the US loses their job. People in the US are just as well off as...
